Powerful “Special Interest Groups” Won AgainSubmitted by clynbrit on Thu, 11/08/2012 - 09:12
"The election that was supposed to be too close to call turned out not to be so close after all. In my opinion, Obama won for two reasons:
(1) Obama is non-threatening and inclusive, whereas Romney exuded a “us vs. them” impression that many found threatening, and
(2) the election was not close enough for the electronic voting machines to steal.
As readers know, I don’t think that either candidate is a good choice or that either offers a choice. Washington is controlled by powerful interest groups, not by elections. What the two parties fight over is not alternative political visions and different legislative agendas, but which party gets to be the whore for Wall Street, the military-security complex, Israel Lobby, agribusiness, and energy, mining, and timber interests."
