#rsrh QotD, The Kinetic Bombardment From Orbit May Now Commence edition.

A Mitt Romney staffer, explaining why you’re about to see campaign ads everywhere:

“Time is short,” said one campaign aide. “We have $100 million we’ve just raised.  If you look at our burn rate to date and our cash on hand, there’s not much more we can spend on infrastructure. So we’ve got to start spending our general election funds in a big way, because you know what the value of that money is on the day after the election? Zero.”

Entertainingly: former NH governor John Sununu used the phrase ‘carpet bomb’ to describe the planned ad campaign. When challenged on this language, Romney-Ryan officials changed it… to ‘daisy cutter.’  Which is accurate, by the way: carpet bombing is far less precise as a method for flattening something.  Plus, it’s just as likely to give progressives the vapors!  Win-win, really.

    about time. I really like the ads Crossroads GPS puts out. I don’t watch a lot of TV, have those ads been anywhere but the internet?

  • HeartbreakRidge says:

    I say we take off and nuke the site from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure!

  • Prayerborne says:

    Now witness the firepower of this fully-funded and operational campaign.

  • Doc Holliday says:

    how ’bout “raze and salt” campaign?

  • Cameron says:

    Personally, I’d like a remark about “And hear the lamentations of their women” in a campaign ad but there are two problems.

    1. Romney just sounds too nice to pull it off without sounding like a goofball.
    2. We’ve already heard plenty of their lamentations with the DNC going on.

  • Rockphed says:

    What is best in life?
    To help your neighbor, see them prosper, and calm the lamentations of a nation.

  • Mikey NTH says:

    I really hope that it will turn out now that:
    Obama = Bismarck
    Romney = King George V and Rodney.

    ‘So you sank Hood; better get your game face on buddy, we want you.’

  • Lightwave says:

    Judging from the transcript, Obamee made the case for Romney better than Romney did.

    But yes, with $100 million, every state should theoretically be in play if only to make Obamee blow money defending it.

    Romney needs to obliterate the Dems. This “hope” bullcrap? WE WANT JOBS YOU BUFFOON.
