Adelson, along with his wife Miriam, will come "very close" to contributing $100 million this year towards defeating President Barack Obama and electing Republicans to Congress, insiders involved in the process told CNN. The multi-billionaire had told associates this year he was prepared to spend as much as $100 million to help achieve his political goals.

That's right... almost (pinky finger to corner of mouth) 100 MILLION DOLLARS!!!

This from a guy that can't manage to pay the extra 3% tax rate if we went back to the Clinton tax rates.
I'm guessing he could pay that extra 3% for about 1,000 years before he hit $100 million dollars.

Sorry about your luck job creators!

Little more than loose pocket change for Sheldon and the other GOP big spenders.

Then again, it would not surprise me too much if Carl Rove went "missing" somewhere in the desert outside of Las Vegas. :cool:

this guy made money like that to the point he was able to literally give it away? and during the last 30 years? while trickle down was proven NOT to work?
and he won't be broke even after giving this money away? and will be able to pay more in taxes next year?

yeah, the huddle snark really makes this guy look foolish.

wow talk about missing the point, he is the one percent that has more money than he knows what to do with, but he's not using it to "create jobs" hes using it to get people elected that will help him hoard more. At least Romney is still squirreling his away offshore somewhere instead of wasting it on the likes of Karl Rove.

No its an ironic point. He throws money away becase he can and we focus on what he has and now we are concerned about jobs. 2012 is the perfect time to have occupational indignation.

No, he tried to buy the Presidency of the United States.

If Romney wins you don't think Adelson would be able to write his own laws to best benefit his own personal interest?

That ain't democracy bro.

is it illegal? what about companies that hired and gave? totally unethical if a company lays off a ton and gives the money away. but, thats up to that company unfortunately.

does each candidate get exactly the same amount of air time?

cap how much goes into campaigns period. look at all that money that was wasted that really could have been spent on a couple of states and the rest given to help the poor or vets or something much more constructive.
