'Angry' Money Gives Funding Edge to GOP and Romney" OH! Now we have "angry money" Angry at what? More to the point; WHY? There was a point in the campaign, where Mr. Obama; (Or whatever his name is), was amassing a billion dollars in donations. I wonder why? If Mr. Obama; (Or whatever his name is), is so audacious, and the incumbant; what in the purpose? He should be a "shoo-in"! The office of President is not the question!

Elimination of about 3/4 of the agencies, departments and bureaus is necessary to restore order and help reduce the budget and get the economy back on its feet.
There has been a lot of wailing and gnashing of teeth as, in the spring, it appeared that forces supporting Mitt Romney would be able to raise about as much money as those supporting Barack Obama. There's even more now that it seems likely that the pro-Romney side will raise and spend more money than the pro-Obama side.

Four years ago, the Obama forces heavily outspent those supporting John McCain. The Obama campaign had enough money to target -- and carry -- heretofore Republican states like North Carolina and Indiana.

That experience made the Democrats spoiled. The prospect that the other...
