Obama outspends Romney on online ads

(CNN) - President Barack Obama's re-election campaign is spending record amounts of money for online advertising and more than twice as much as his Republican rival, a CNN analysis of campaign finance data shows.

In the first few months of 2012, Obama's campaign bought nearly $16.4 million worth of online ads after spending almost $2.2 million last year - even though he didn't face a Democratic challenger. That means he is on pace to spend a record amount on digital ads, according to ad spending experts.

    Romney is spending all his money making commercials. So, don't make this blaming something on Obama. Romney has spent just as much as Obama, maybe not in one thing but plenty of things.

    I like Pres. Obama's ads. They are all smiling even Bo does the same. The other side is quite the opposite, wooden all way through!

    You can fool all of the people some of the time and some of the people all of the time, BUT you can't fool all of the people all of the time. You like the Nanny State Obama's your man. You take Personal Responsibility you don't need anything but the Constitution. With Obama or Romney the end result will be the same. It just depends who you want to bury you. The Liberals, or yourself.
