If you believe Obama and Romney, you'd think they are the answer to all our economic woes. At least each one wants us to believe that they have all the answers. Truth is, presidents or even governments, don't "control" economic ebbs and flows. The most they can do is to magnify or blunt the peaks and troughs. Peaks and troughs WILL keep on happening.
So, here are some fearless predictions... bound to go wrong.
- In the next four years/presidential term, the economy and the job market will start a roaring comeback. My sincere wish/prayer/hope is that those damaged in the crash will get back on track
- If Obama wins the election, he will take all the credit for the recovery. And the recovery will be so good that his flunkies will want to repeal presidential term limits to give him a third term
- If Romney wins, he'll take all the credit for the recovering job market and unceasingly bad mouth Obama for the previous four years. He'll get a second term and right after he starts his second term, the economy will tank
- And four years from now we'll still be calling each other Democretins and Republitards and strenuously defending how one candidate or the other is the LESSER of two evils instead of meeting in the middle and... (sigh)
