SPAIN was cited as an example to be avoided in the first Obama-Romney US presidential election debate. “Spain spends 42 per cent of their total economy on government,” Romney said.  “We’re now spending 42 per cent of our economy on government. 

I don’t want to go down the path of Spain,” the Republican candidate declared.  “I want to go down the path of growth that puts Americans to work with more money coming in because they’re working.”  Obama cited Spain during his 2008 presidential campaign when, far from equating the country with failure, he commended its commitment to renewable energy.
