Then again, considering the unemployment figures and power diving stock market we've already lived through, I have trouble imaging that it could be worse. Our national credit rating is at "Brother-in-law who lives in his car" levels, and we're PRINTING MONEY out of thin air to manage the situation. I am having a hard time seeing how no bailout could have been worse.
I think in part, the GOP are freaking out, b/c even though Romney was the best guy to run against the president, that was only because of the crazy pants wackos that mostly were in the primaries.
Romney is thin skinned, and kinda wooden.
These debates will likely affirm the narrative about him that he's himself built and documented for everyone. He's a brittle, poncy rich guy, who's never wanted, and is the most chickenhawkish guy imaginable (for the Vietnam war, goes to live in a mansion in France).
Not that he'd mention the troops/war in his acceptance speech at the convention. Why mar a perfectly sterile speech with something organic, tragic, and important to many poor families who's kids support this military.
How did you feel when GWB did the giant upper income tax cut, and launched 2 wars, all on credit?
Did you ever buy the war will pay for its self?
Has President Obama done better than GWB? Did one of them crash the economy, and the other turn it around, but not fast enough for the modern attention span, and media meta-cycles?
Go home you facist.
