How is this a critique of corporations while ignoring unions? Unions had to follow largely the same rules as corps when donating political money, they had to use a PAC so those members/shareholders who have differing political opinions aren't roped into having their money used to support a candidate by an organization to which they belong.

How was that a bad solution? More specifically, what was the problem there? Corps and unions could spend money on politics, they just had to identify it as a separate fund for doing so. I'm not sure, aside from a conservative desire for businesses to wield a political stick, what necessitated such a change.

We believed Rasmussen and Gallup's much more pro-Romney numbers which turned out to be the worst mistake since Napoleon decided that Russia was ripe for a winter invasion.
