Why not wait until Friday?Submitted by JohnnyTemples on Mon, 05/14/2012 - 18:19
Regardless of what the true purpose of this announcement was (and unlike what some people want to think, it was not to "stay under the radar" since the Romney campaign knew about the delegate strategy LONG before anyone on this site did), why would he do this BEFORE the money bomb that was just 3 days away? Why not announce it NEXT Monday. Or even Friday.
He just GUARANTEED that he will get much less money for the moneybomb as most of the casual supporters (those that still haven't come close to maxing out) will not bother. And yes...I know he still needs money so people will donate. But to suggest that it won't cost him a significant amount of money is ridiculous.
It is especially surprising that he would do this when donations had picked up considerably in the last few days since he sent out his latest plea for money.
