Will Adelson place a big bet on Romney?

Following an hour and a half hour meeting Tuesday afternoon with Nevada billionaire Sheldon Adelson and a few aides, the presumptive Republican nominee was assured the casino magnate was fully supportive of him.

    Robmey says, "show me the money!"
    He is with Meg Whitman today, the lady that ran for governor with her millions. She lost. What is she doing now? She is CEO of HP, and her latest move is thousands of layoffs. And she used to work at Bain. sound ironic?

    Since he threw away $20 million on that bloated, blowhard Gingrich, what would keep him from throwing a few million Romney's way? It's his money, if he likes supporting losing causes, then by all means, donate.

    Shouldn't it be illegal for a candidate to sit down with someone, and then for that someone to make a large donation to superPAC supportive of the candidate. Didn't the candidate just do some fund raising for the superPAC?

    25 million dollars can buy Mr. Adelson a manchurian candidate willing to do his bidding. I think Willard is just the puppet he's looking for.

    Sure he'll place a bet, that's why Newt is cozy with Romney, Adelson wants his money back and he'll get it.

    Of course he will support Romney, Mr. Adelson hates unions. Romney will help him out on that.
    Big oil will help because Romney will gut the EPA and allow air and water pollution to run rampant, not to
    mention Mr. big man Simmons who is building a huge nuclear waste dump in Texas, which happens to be
    located on top of the now infamous Ogallala aquifer. If the Keystone Pipeline doesn't contaminate the
    aquifer, the nuclear waste dump will.
    Romney is going to owe a lot of people a lot of things, most of which will be detrimental to the American
    way of life.
    Can you say Ambassador Trump? Weakness is Romney's middle name.

    He wasn't fund raising. He was discussing pending legislation.

    Adelson could buy and sell Rmoney ten times over. Rmoney is a 1%er. Adelson is a 1% of the 1%er.

    For a mormon bishop he sure likes to gamble with big or other people's money. What the Kola alien promised newterman if he stood by him (and he does look uncomfortable when he talks nice about the flip flopper) is that adelson won't make him pay back the money he wasted (which he can probably claim on his taxes as a loss of sorts) on the serial cheater or he would pay for his freedom from
    BTW long form birth certificate down or is that the real certificate? NEXT WHERE ARE HIS 2011 TAXES????????
    We want to know how much he legally made as we can't make overseas banks give us any information on his hidden money.

    Hey, all you Repubs who think your party and the Citizens United decision is a good thing, this is what you brought on our country: The ability of a couple wealthy people to try to buy and sell our elections.

    You know where else this kind of thing happens? Third-world dictatorships.

    Thanks a lot Repubs – NOT!

    being a mormon bishop does not seem to effect where mitt gets his money from. Apparently they only have problems with womens healt but not gambeling money or sin city itself. But thats obvious by the way mitt handeled the birther comments or the limbaugh remarks. Ol jelly fish couldnt run water let alone this country. Obama 2012 Forward.
