The Last Of The Millenniums

Just because it always has been, doesn't mean it always will be

A ‘Conservative’ vision for America – Secret Donors – ‘Romney’s Republicanpalooza: How about a guest list’?

‘Selling access has become nearly universal in political campaigns. Seeking to do so in secret sets Mr. Romney apart’.

‘ON FRIDAY, Mitt Romney — along with an entourage of his most important donors and fundraisers — arrived at the tony Utah ski resort of Deer Valley. Whether the presumptive presidential nominee or his 700 close friends at this so-called Republicanpalooza are aware that the Works Progress Administration built the resort’s first ski trails in the mid-1930s is not known’.

‘Unfortunately, also unknown to most Americans are the identities of the “bundlers” present at this weekend fete, the fundraisers largely responsible for Mr. Romney’s unexpected outraising of President Obamain May’.

‘Campaign finance laws don’t require candidates to release the names of their bundlers, except in the case of registered federal lobbyists’.

‘But the Romney campaign’s refusal to identify those who bring in a quarter-million dollars or more differentiates it not only from the Obama campaign but also from those of the past two Republican contenders for the White House, President George W. Bush and Sen. John McCain (Ariz.). Both released lists of their major fundraisers, along with the scale of their harvests’.
