Campaign 2012: Bring on the cash money

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) - With primary season over, the race for president - and the race for cash - is about to heat up.

Campaign finance experts expect President Obama and Mitt Romney will attract enough money to break all previous fundraising records. For Obama, who raised $750 million in 2008, a jump up to $1 billion is not out of the question.

    Mittens needs only 20 donors like the Kochs, and he will bring in a billion as well.

    Here comes the repubs with that same 2010 slogan again, "if we pick a repubs then big corporations will invest their money back into the economy"! This a pack of crap the repubs love to shovel to the gullibles. They say the same thing with tarp, when bush shoveled all this money to big corporations, the thing that followed was a collapse because big businesses said, its OK to get this money but their still is no buyers to buy their products. If the repubs thinks their will be a influx of folks investing in America, when mitten cuts away the spenders spending money, their will be another thing coming. Lesson China and India has way cheaper labor, because their middle class is like our minimum salary earners, furthermore they've got 6 times more spenders than we do. If big businesses want to invest in America after mitten have cut our demand power, their shareholders will fire their CEO. Lesson the best way to get big businesses trillions off the sidelines is to encourage them to help modernize America, so that America can strenghten our middle class spenders, they will benefit for folks spending.

    Money can't buy the support that Ron Paul fans display. Shame shame on mainstream media for leaving out Ron Paul in its overall coverage of the most exciting politician since JFK. He will accomplish more as the white MLK for Liberty as a private citizen anyway.
