In response to an FT article by Megan Murphy on 21st December 2014, entitled 'Ticket to the White House set to cost at least $1bn'
Welcome to the reality TV world of US primary elections. A world with the drama of 'Dallas', the glitz of 'Dynasty', let down only by poor scripts and the quality of the cast, whose acting skills wouldn't have troubled Arnie, not even when he was taking the 'protein' formula.
Ladies and Gentlemen, introducing to you, and entering from stage left, we proudly present Billary 'I care about poor people but I just love Wall Street' Clinton.
And from stage right, the man that no-one's been waiting for, Son of George, Brother of George, the guy named Jeb because George was taken…Jeb 'I'm not as big a nit as my brother' Bush.
Not forgetting a cornucopia of understudies just aching to do their civil duty and step forward in case either of the stars trip over their tongues and tell us what they really think about something. Yes folks listen carefully for more economic genius from the woman who gave us this:
“We can’t afford to have that money go to the private sector. The money has to go to the federal government because the federal government will spend that money better than the private sector will spend it” - Billary Clinton
“Don’t let anybody tell you it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs” - Billary Clinton
Listen out too for more diplomatic genius from the man who gave us this:
“I would like to finish by thanking the president of the Republic of Spain for his friendship with the United States” - Not George Bush
"Immigrants are more fertile, and they love families, and they have more intact families” - Not George Bush
Enjoy the drama ladies and gentlemen, and don't forget to vote, or at least write what you really think on your ballot paper.
