    cause and affect of the 08 crash which started in 06. The problem is you fast food type people want it fixed now when it takes time.

    If romney wins, i am giving him one day to fix the mess and then declaring him a failure.

    thats how the game is played now.

    Seriously?
    How many people from the republican side only gave Mr Obama and the then democrat controlled house and senate just one day?
    Please list the members of this board that did that.

    Even Obama gave himself 4 years, you really think Romney is that much smarter than The One?

    why are you taking me seriously alan? I am being extreme on purpose. Hence " thats how the game is played now.

    The reality is people gave him 3-6 months depending on how retarded they where.

    The average though with sensible people was about 2 years.

    You guys love to play to the extremes till its thrown back in your face and then you cry like a baby.

    i don't think Obama thought he could fix it in four years. I know the line you are thinking about. Sorry not buying it.

    Is mitt smart? sure, is he a good President? No.

    I don't play extremes, that's why I put a question mark at the end of the word 'seriously'.
    I'm not crying either, I was curious as to your point, which you now admit wasn't reality, but was an extreme.

    Well, except for the meeting of senior Republicans on the day of his inauguration that resolved to hold the country to ransom with the one aim of having Obama a one term president, so I reckon he had less than a day really.

    Mr Romney has never been president, so you really can't make that judgement yet.
    Mr Obama is president, so the judgement about whether or not he is a good one can be made.
