    They are not "loopholes", unless there is a policy in place to limit / prohibit what they do. As the Federal policy states nothing about the flow of money from Federal PACs to State PACS or vice-versa, these are not "loopholes". It is smart business, something Romney knows a lot about. One of the numerous good reasons to vote for him.

    Another is, he knows where the money is offshore....

    But then I voted for Perot, the last good businessman to run, and look what that got us.....

    Odd that folks like Mitt must concern themselves with campaign election funding
    when a certain Chicago adventurer will spend close to $500 million while seeking to buhy a second term. A junior high student can see through this.

    I haven't decided who to support in 2012. It's a bit early and no one is exposing any hole cards yet. But, I find it interesting that Obama supporters who thought him completely transparent in terms of financial support and obligation, often are appalled when someone else legally uses the same system to their advantage. The fact that Romney is smart enough to utilize what the law allows suggests that he is willing to make the effort to be effective in his campaign. Not a bad trait in dealing with entranched politics inside the beltway. Whether his policy intentions are worthwhile remains to be seen. We still don't know Obama's full intentions.

    Admit it or not, for most of us using loopholes or not depends on how we feel they best suit our personal agenda. If they do, we like 'em. If they don't, we howl about how unfair they are. Monitor this thread today and see if I'm not right.

    I wish the Deseret News would write more about Mitt Romney. I just don't think there is enough coverage of him.

    Good for Romney.

    It is going to take a lot of resources, and a lot of money to beat Obama.

    Every penny spent on beating Obama is a penny spent on the good of our country, in my opinion.

    Can Romney win a *single* primary in the "Christian" South?-?-?...

    That is the *real* question in my opinion.

    Good to see the Republican field coming together. Get Romney to run, get some real conservatives to run, and when it is all said and done, get behind the candidate who wins the nomination, and lets get Obama back into organizing community events in Chicago.
