Reminds me of a ol Abraham Lincoln quote: "..corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands, and the Republic is destroyed."
    Guess it isn't a sad day when Obama outspent McCain 3-1 and won? You think the people are so stupid that their votes can be bought?

    I'll give you this... In a place like Wisconsin, most peoples minds were already made up. There were very few independents who hadn't already figured it out. However, on a national stage, advertisements are not there to persuade democrats or republicans... they are there to persuade the undecided independent voters. So yes, money and advertisements are everything when it comes to national stage elections.
    Right, and we certainly don't want to count the 16 months of liberal spending to get the recall? That doesn't matter, does it?

    The vast majority of Obama's fundraising comes from small donors. The vast majority of Romney's money comes from millionaires and billionaires.

    Ah, a Job Creator speaks. As one who worked for a living close to fifty years, I'll call BS on that.
    Everything that is good about this country was brought about by progressives, including the country itself. With out Unions, you'd still be packing your kids off to the mines or sweatshops, working 6 days a week,10 hours a day for straight time $$$ with no holidays or vacation. Complain & you had better have a nestegg saved because when your canned, there'll be no unemployment comp.
    Wages in right to work states are the lowest in the country. Unions lift all boats.

    The sooner we bust the unions, the better this country will be.

    Nope. It's the "politics" of the taxpayers money. And the taxpayers, a.k.a the voter, finally woke up to the fact.

    Just curious, but do you have a reliable source?

    No he does not because it is not true.
