    Two billion dollars. One for each candidate. That’s only what they spent on ads. That money would have been much better spent in too many ways.
    it is very sad.

    I think this only reinforces my belief that private money has no business being in elections. One person, one vote; public funding for all political activities. If you want your message spread, post on your blog or write a letter to an editor.

    Why does it matter whether the money could have been spent better? It wasn’t your money. It wasn’t public money. Surely you people don’t believe you have the right to vote how other people spend their money? You do understand what “their” means, don’t you? Or will we see a vote on that, too?

    “Yes and 85% of Obama ads were negative and 80% of Romney’s ads were negative.”

    Actually, a bit more than half.

    Conversely, Romney was the worst president you could buy for a billion.

    Obama did not create the system. It was the Yahoos on the supreme idiots court that did this to our democracy, much like when they handed the great nincompoop the election in 2000 that got us into this mess in the first place.

    Backers can’t get a refund for Romney since they did not keep the receipt.

    Does it really matter that it was a billion $ I mean unless you gave it than it doesn’t matter.

    @Howgozit
    Your numbers may not be accurate.
    I couldn’t find the numbers I was looking for, but these should suffice.
