“Here’s how they’re going to do it. They’re going to do it by taking their wallet and buying it … “
Karl Rove – the guy who masterminded the Bush campaign for two elections … the guy who is raising hundreds of millions of dollars to manipulate your vote says that President Obama is trying to buy the election. Classic. He then goes on to say the “good guys” such as Mitt Romney and his organization Crossroads GPS were just responding to the influx of money that President Obama is spending.
Karl Rove is raising $300 million from unknown billionaires. Take that $300 million and add in the probably around $500 million being spent by the Koch brothers and their secret donors (source). Then add in the money the Romney campaign is actually going to raise through legal and transparent means. This is going to be the first president in the history of our country to be outspent.

This year, thanks to the American Crossroads “Super PAC” organization that he co-founded, Rove will have vast resources to fertilize Romney’s campaign: a massive wallet, one of the loudest megaphones in conservative media, and close ties to Romney’s campaign.
In an interview with Reuters, Rove described his vision for Crossroads, which he founded with his friend Ed Gillespie in 2010. Crossroads – which has received seven-figure donations from several wealthy Republicans – hopes to spend $300 million on this election.
Beyond helping Romney match Democratic President Barack Obama’s vast fundraising effort, Rove said he wants Crossroads to be a permanent figure on the political landscape – a big-money, independent group that works in concert with the Republican Party on strategy and involves its most influential donors.
