The Wisconsin Ad Project shows in this table where barrack Obama sees his best chances to win a red state, and where John McCain sees states worth defending. It also shows some seemings bad decision making.

John McCain recently spent $227,000 on TV ads in Iowa. That is virtually wasted money since Obama and the Dems have swamped the Republicans with new voter registration, and McCain is a long-standing enemy of ethanol. McCain also spent $1.2 million recently in Michigan, just before pulling out off the state. Ouch. For a candidate limited to public financing, he is going to wish he had spent that in Ohio or Pennsylvania, states that are still toss-ups and where Obama is out-spending him.

McCain also outspent Obama six-to-one in Minnesota, a toss-up state the GOP is hopeful to snatch out of the blue column.Obama spent $1.2 million in North Carolina. Apparently rhe voter registration undertaken by the Dems in the primary have given them real hope of picking it off.

Obama outspent McCain 3-to-1 last week. The Obama camapaign said that it received donations from a remarkable 1.5 million donors in September.

Obama Outspending McCain 3-to1 in Ads,
Obama's secret weapon: The media
Maybe he can use some of that money to hep the people who will lose their jobs because of the OBAMA TAX on small business. Raising taxes in a recession! What? How are they letting this man get away with this. Don't you think Pres. Obama would be beholden to all these people who has funded his campaign?? Something is not right at all about all this money in politics.
OBAMA'S TAX REFUND PLAN IS A CODEWORD FOR GIVING MORE WELFARE TO MILLIONS WHO PAY NO INCOME TAXES
