    They way they raise money is simple........they sell their souls to the wealthy, and the wealthy collect when it benefits them.

    It's simple. They used to grovel, barter, and beg. Now they grovel, barter, beg, and pander.

    The way the latest superPAC money is pouring in, Gingrich should be in that picture ($10 million from a Vegas Casino owner who wants to buy support for Israel's future war with Iran).

    It's as plain as the nose on Callista's face.

    Obama now has enough fodder to feed his re-election campaign. These rich BRATS are so OUT-OF-TOUCH with the rest of us.

    These two NUTS are already doomed against Obama. Well thinking Americans are paying attention as they struggle to prove how out-of-touch they are from the realities of everyday Americans. These two multi-millionaires are competing to reveal who profit the most from Freddie mac and Fanny mae who robbed the middle class of their investments.

    How dumb can people get, especially in their quest for POWER & RICHES on the backs of the poor in this country????

    Ain't they really TWO NUTS...TWO SPOILED RICH BRATS?

    Right on, Max. Those two are two of your biggest elitist country club Republicans you'll ever see.
