    I know that polls and opinions change but Obama WILL be re-elected if the economy picks up.

    And from the sounds of it there's a good chance we won't be.

    Unemployment will be above 8.5% by next November. No incumbent has ever won with unemployment that high.

    It is has now been determined that Obama's stimulus created 3 million jobs in the private sector. Also, Obama lowered the unemployment rate from 12% to 9%.

    He's done a lot in 3 years.

    As we witness the European Union's economic cold becoming worldwide pnumonia, I'd say making predictions about the next US economy or the election outcomes is nothing but whistling in the dark

    This isn't like our fathers recessions, neither is it our grandfathers' great depression, either.

    Looks to me like the center (of modern capitalism) will not hold.

    This is the logical conclusion, indeed the end game of this round of modern capitalism.

    The winners of capitalism have far too much money, everybody else too much debt.

    And as there's no real mechanisms in the capitalism game to change that situation?

    I mean, Congress even fucked up the bankruptsy laws, at the behest of the banksters, and those bankruptsy laws used to be the emergeny exit when things got this bad.

    Time is coming when the folks who own all these debts either take haircuts (absolving, NOT rewriting debts) or they wait it out foolishly demanding payments that will never be forthcoming, and until there's enough misery on the mean streets that THE people will accept ANY solution that puts food on their tables and stabilizes their societies.

    What we're on NOW is the path to some mightmare like fascism or communism.

    And who put us there?

    The MASTERS of the BANKING universe, folks.

    The very folks so many of you nitwits admire.

    Greed is good?


    We about to see just how wrong that assinine philosophy really is, folks
