AND THE PREMISE OF HIS CAMPAIGN IS THAT HE'S A SMART BUSINESSMAN?:

Romney to reach into pocket, make 'significant' Feb. 5 buy (Jonathan Martin, 1/31/08, Politico)

Mitt Romney has decided to pour more of his own fortune into his presidential campaign and will go up on TV in California and other Super Tuesday states.

"Romney for President will be making a significant ad buy in California and other Feb. 5 states," spokesman Matt Rhoades said this morning.

I doubt whether he can make an impact with TV ads in CA at this late date. Local TV in LA has been swamped for months with ads fighting over an expansion of Indian gaming, and it's hard to imagine people aren't fatigued about political ads. I did get a robocall from McCain last night, as well as a political survey (hung up on both).

Re: Smart Businessmen

Makes me wonder whether the likes if El Rushbo have ever seen those public opinion polls on trustworthiness. In recent years, those polls consistently show low trust in corporate CEO's and high trust in the military. Yet, the Virgin Right can't understand why McCain is doing so well against Mittens.
