Campaign Finance Math is More Likely to Finish Bernie than Election Math (HRC GP)

by Yvette Grimes

Hereís why Hillary doesnít hold large rallies. Theyíre God-awful expensive. Say you want to hold a rally in a park for 27,000 people (actually Bernie had about 11,000, but lied with the higher number) you canít just say meet me at the park. You have to pay for a permit, arrange and pay for porta potties, and pay for almost all the security. The city/town pays for their regular patrols, the person holding the rally has to arrange for and pay security in advance. These are almost always off-duty cops who can wear their uniform. They make about $100-$200/hour. For a crowd of about 27,000 thatís at a minimum of $100,000 per hour. And the candidate has to pay for clean-up afterwards. A huge rally can cost the candidate a million in campaign donations. For what? He has a photo-op of him in front of a lot of people.

What does Hillary have? Photo-ops of her sitting with some guys and winning at Dominos; eating an ice cream concoction named after her; dancing the Meringue in Harlem with a small crowd going wild and dancing with her; visiting and talking with children; and meeting and listening to people having problems. Oh, and the best one of all looking at and coveting that piece of cheesecake as one of her campaign aides digs into a slice of strawberry cheesecake. Total cost for Hillary maybe $10,000.

5. What a debacle.

Bet they wish they had do-over on that Quixotic trip because it sure didn't get the "Catholic" vote.

6. that's a YUUUUGE amount of debt!

Sorry, couldn't help meself for that.

As to the Vatican trip, he openly said it was personal, which definitely violates FEC rules on how funds may be spent.

11. Interesting article...

At this point, seems he hasn't figured out that these rallies, in especially closed primaries aren't producing votes and the enthusiasm isn't really catching on... Maybe it's also the case of Hillary seems to break through and capture the voters when her one on one moments are played. She's really good at those and maybe Bernie isn't because he's not good unscripted.

His learning curve is becoming a spiral...

12. Spot on description of both their approaches to issues as well.

Bernie's scorched earth, all or nothing style of politics never gets anything accomplished.

Hillary's incremental, pragmatic, build consensus approach does accomplish goals.

14. "If she turns her head

for just a moment, I could get that cake. She's never know if I eat it fast enough. Come on, turn your head..."

Been there, done that.

15. Hillary has a smart, efficient campaign.

Just like she will have a smart, efficient administration. She won't waste our tax dollars on bullshit, just like she hasn't wasted our campaign donation dollars. Which reminds me, I need to send her another donation to commemorate her big New York win!

18. This has to speak to the frivolousness of BS spending.

Hillary sets good examples in real life. BS shows ignorance and arrogance, mimicked by supporters.
