Let me get this straight: these benighted folk think that Mitt Romney, he of the ultrarich business CEO class that took down the American auto industry, is the savior? Good luck with all that, and oh, there’s an arsonist who wants a job with your fire department…..
Not that I mind Romney winning…I’m ecstatic. I had picked McCain to win, because I was wrongly convinced that Michiganders (of which I was once one) had enough sense to vote for the only guy with a chance of winning in the fall, John McCain. Poor old John. Bad as he is….
It may be that people are just burnt out on the Iraq war, McCain, and all the broken promises; it may be that soon the single biggest issue will be “the economy, stupid,” all across the country… but the idea that big business is the champion of the little guy is completely delusional. The business of big business is exploitation of the little guy. That’s why we need government, to balance that out. Instead, our government has become just another weapon in big business’ array of armaments against the little guy.
