Wouldn't a vote for romney simply be a vote for america's crazy right-wing billionaires?

Romney's biggest donors are listed below - but these numbers do not include Rove's 300 million dollar superpac (a few billionaire donors) or the koch brother's front groups which were supposed to raise 400 million.

Also note, that Sheldon Adelson gave 20 million, but that amount is 1/1000th of his fortune.

    Don't forget to include the Tea Party and the right wing religious zealots. The GOP does not even resemble the GOP of old.

    Yes, because Romney does as he is told. He is not a leader but a man who caters to those who pull his strings. That includes billionaires and the Tea Party.

    mittens is about diversity and wide support from a variety of economic classes.

    he takes money from millionaires and billionaires.
