The Republican campaigns spent more than $12 million in Iowa. For what? How much did Mitt Romney spend in order win by 8 votes? Even worse, he got less than 25% of the vote, which means that 75% of the voters did not want him.
As Ed Stein put it, “the Republican candidates for president seem to live on a different planet than the rest of us, one where the only problem this country has is named Obama.” And what are the solutions offered by the candidates? The same greed-based “solutions” that got us into this terrible mess in the first place.
