POLITICIANS, THE MEDIA vs THE MASSES.
Gingrich and Romney to boot.
The confusion going on in the Republican Party now is plain to see. No one will be able to say that all is well with the candidates running in the party's nomination race to contend with President Barack Obama for the White House in the 2012 presidential election.
The confusion has become nauseating in such a way that, people are somewhat staying away from politics, because of that. They do not want to hear what one candidate is saying about the other.
It is always the same old grind, and none of them is letting up, particularly the two front runners, Gingrich and Romney.
Their rhetoric have even become abusive, with Gingrich calling Romney a liar and a dishonest person. All his dealings in life have been unethical, and so he could not be trusted. Gingrich had said.
Romney, on the other hand, has been saying that Gingrich was nothing but a high profile lobbyist for Freddie Mac and, perhaps Fannie Mae, which were sister companies being sponsored by the United States government; and that the two companies were responsible for the Mortgage and Housing crisis that was having a major effect of homes being foreclosed on.
That, Gingrich was fired from his job as Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives in disgrace, the first in American history. Also, his habitual "promiscuity" would never allow him to be president.
It has been a horrible and nasty campaign, people were being put off by such nasty attitudes on both sides, with respect to Gingrich and Romney. However, Santorum and Paul, the other two candidates in the Republican race have really been well behaved.
Romney was spending huge sums of money to win the Florida primary, and where that money was coming from no one was questioning the source; not even the fair, balanced and unafraid media.
Gingrich has also spent large sums of money more than Santorum and Paul, who were still hanging on in the Republican nomination race in spite of their dwindling resources; yet, Romney's pocketbook was gearing to buy the election in Florida, as money was no object, with respect to his campaign and his financiers.
The fact was that, the Republican party establishment was caught between Gingrich, who was a real conservative and Romney, who was a moderate in his political approach to social issues; but he was also considered to be the one that could challenge Obama for the presidency, due to his (Romney's) Wall Street background.
The high executives there were supporting Romney, and they would do anything for him to win all the primaries and caucuses and be the party's nominee.
The only thing the party hierarchy was forgetting about was that Wall Street was being blamed for the nation's economic woes; hence, Occupy Wall Street organization, which started in New York City and now having subsequent "Occupy" demonstrations all over the country.
What the voters in Florida should do should be using their Constitutional right to reject the candidates that were feuding like rats to take advantage of them. They would be used by the candidates and nothing would come out in the end that would benefit them (voters).
That was what politicians did best. They would make all the promises, when voting time came around, but they could not be found anywhere the moment trouble of any kind appeared in a community that had voted them to the U.S. Congress or any type of political quackery. They would hardly show up in emergency situations affecting their constituents. (Mark it on the wall).
The media too would be cashing in on what was going on in Florida, as they usually did, by capitalizing on negative advertisements; and in the end, the losers would be the inhabitants of the state, city or neighborhood. The two entities, the media and politicians, have a way of bamboozling the masses.
"When will they ever learn?"
Over to you, Florida.
