A tale of two elections. Obama went after his base, saying things that sounded banal, the pill , big bird, student loans, amnesty while living on MSMedia. Romney avoided his base like plague. Palin, leader of the grass root Conservatives, was barred from the convention in favor of Christie. Ron Paul, with his faults, is a hero to US youth, but no attempt was made to include them, and Romney ignored conservative media. The snobbish Democrats cater to their base no matter how weird, Republicans say nothing good about their base. The results show in presidential elections.
