Before counting out my bus fare to get over to Cincinnati this morning, I read online that Romney’s fundraising for his bid to become president has stagnated. Still, this guy, in January, spent close to $19 million dollars to try and win the GOP nomination. 19 million dollars.
When was the last time you spent $19 million dollars in a month? In a year? Have you ever in your entire life had that kind of money? For me, the answer is no to all three questions. Hell, I’m trying to come up with bus fare.
I’m not sure why this story and information bugs me so much. I’m aware that money and politics is a way of life in this country but how can these people raising and spending this kind of money relate to people like you and me? It’s all a game and the older I get, the more it makes me sick.
I’m 20 cents short on bus fare. Maybe I’ll call Romney and see if he’s got any spare change.
