Romney has to spend $15.4 million to win in Florida?

3 posts / 0 new

No surprises - Mitt Romney on the Florida primary last night by 15 points over Newt Gingrich. The Romney campaign – with the help of SuperPACs funded by Wall Street billionaires – carpet-bombed the state with TV ads – airing 13,000 TV ads, compared to Newt Gingrich who only aired 200. But if Romney thought the race would be over soon – he thought wrong.

Last night, Gingrich gave a speech to supporters in front of a sign reading “46 states to go.” And thanks to the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision – Newt CAN keep running until the end of the primary race – as long as he has casino millionaires cutting him checks. Meanwhile – in a victory interview with CNN last night, Romney admitted that he’s “not concerned with the very poor” in America because they have a “safety net there.”
Of course, it’s a safety net that Romney and Republicans in Congress are trying to get rid of. Currently – almost half the nation is in poverty or low-income – meaning the Republican front-runner for President just admitted he’s not considered with half of all Americans.

Blah blah blah......

Newt this... Romney that....

Ron Paul supporters are coming out 4 to 1 at all these Republicans rallies.

Fix the banks and the banking system and the Americans will do for themselves.

The class warfare thing isn't going to work.

We know it was the banks that caused the 2nd Depression, not making bad loans to poor people.

Obama has been a failure as a President. Badmouthing the Globalist Republicans shamdidates will not win Obama any brownie points. Not this late in the game....

All Obama has to do is let these bums discredit themselves and each other. RP is a fantasy, as I pointed out elsewhere. He hangs out with Republicans! His personal freedom integrity is compromised by the Culture War. He is a gadfly, but would be a disastrous President.

Obama has not been a failure as President, but he is neither the savior nor the problem. He has done a decent job in the space present political reality provides. It is not a good enough space, but Kucinich could not get elected and we have to deal with some political realities even if they are not ultimately realistic about the world or adequate to our solutions.
