    All indicators point to another recession. Income is down and durable goods dropped 13%. Growth has continued to slow every quarter and the last was revised down to barely over 1 percent. There is a part of me that wants Romney to win so we can start to recover. However, to be honest there is a part of me that kind of hopes Obama will win so that once and for all we can prove liberalism is a complete failure. Sure I know that after another 4 years of liberal policies this country will be near the bottom but sometimes you have to hit bottom to get it through thick skulls. Of course the mainstream media will continue to blame republicans and that may still work with some idiots but I have to believe another four years of Obama would kill the Democrat party for good and save the country.

    So you want bad things to happen to the country so you can say, "I was right!"?

    Seriously?

    I think our problem is, that neither one of these guys has a real plan for fixing the problems.

    But Romney would be worse, because he doesn't even understand what the problems are.

    Wasn't that the GOP's strategy from the day of Obama's inauguration?

    The more likely scenario is that we slowly move towards a robust recovery that sets up a good economic climate for Obama's successor to win in 2016,

    similar to 1988.

    Oh Please, Obama will keep dog piling the debt. And he understands what the problems are.

    The debt isn't our biggest problem.

    The decline of the Middle Class is. If we had a robust middle class, the debt would attend to itself.
