Politician's like Mitt Romney don't have to do the dirty work of demonizing and crushing their opponents, giant PACs with unlimited funds will do it for them. When the general election campaign cycle begins, tens of millions of dollars from corporations around the world will go into ads that will try to ensure that the most corporate friendly, individual averse candidate wins. Imagine the quid quo pro these groups will cash in on once they get their boy in office.
Our conservative supreme court members never tire of reminding us of their deep understanding of the "original intent" of the founding fathers. Do you think this is what Jefferson and others had in mind? Thanks to our conservative majority Supreme Court for destroying our political process and insuring that America will be a place that is more friendly to corporations than humans.
Each Super PAC has an agenda, with millions of dollars to spend on those agendas. How many Super PACs do you think will be promoting things like consumer rights, universal health care, and banking regulations?

Candidates with enough financing can lay their own groundwork for voter mobilization efforts and remain positive, while a supportive super PAC runs negative ads beating off opponents.

That’s after polls have closed in states expected to go a long way toward determining the GOP presidential nominee — the Iowa caucuses and primaries in New Hampshire, South Carolina and Florida."
