25. White House probably not their objective yet...

They have to keep it closer if they intend to put their thumb on the scale for Romney I'm being lazy and quoting myself from one of my other post ...

They didn't want WH in '08 and don't want it now. Hence McCain/Palin and R/R. They wrecked economy and left Obama holding the bag. It's not fixed yet so they don't want it back yet AND they are getting everything they really want from Pres Obama: Holder not going after any war criminals or wall street, we have Republican healthcare plan that gives more customers to insurers, new nafta for pacific that favors corporations over citizens, indefinate detentions, Guantanamo still open, spying on citizens, militarized police, privatized for-profit prisons, doesn't stand with unions, for-profit education, jailing whistleblowers, coup in Honduras, Xl Pipeline, state-sponsored physical assault at airports, voter suppression, still no real investigation of 911, kept Geitner and others in place, still prosecuting young adults for marijuana use - which he did when young, going after medical marijuana ...

On the plus side he's not pursuing DOMA, seems empathetic, and...


...new text now...
I'm sure they will put their thumb on the scale for MANY congressional and state races. There is no doubt that we need to get back to paper ballots and undo Citizens United but the republican primary process was a strong indication that they did not intend for any of them to win the White House.

Anything is possible but I'm less concerned about Romney as I am about the continued red takeover of the wide swath of state and local elections and therefore the continuing decline of living wages and personal privacy/freedoms.

We had better get our act together and line up some 99% candidates ASAP and build on the eye-opening lunacy of the Romney candidacy to break the spell of mainstream media.

I'm getting sick of looking like a country of idiots with madmen at the helm to the rest of the world.
