Obama's path to to victory went straight through the Republican primariesSubmitted by sailingaway on Thu, 11/08/2012 - 17:25
"When the dust cleared there were two men left standing to compete for the chance to compete with president Obama. One of those men agreed with Obama on almost every issue: The drug wars, the drone attacks, NDAA, the so called patriot act, Keynesian economics, the morality of taxation and the effectiveness of central planning. The other offered such a stark contrast to Obama, that Democrats were forming groups to support him. He had the young vote, the antiwar vote, the military vote, all key demographics that led to Obama’s reelection, but the GOP did not nominate Ron Paul, They nominated Mitt Romney, and Obama won the election on that day."
