    I am just wondering how you Obama supporters view the U.S. economy over the next four years. Unemployment rate? GDP growth? Inflation? If you had $100k to invest, where would you put it? C'mon, help me out!

    If you had $100,000 and wanted to keep it, get it offshore and turn it into some other stable currency, Swiss Francs, Euros, or Yuan. That way the devaluing of the dollar won't hurt as much.

    I'm not an obama supporter but here is mine :
    - $22 trillion national debt
    - 25% unemployment (using original methodology)
    - 40% youth unemployment
    - 60 million on food stamps
    - we are still in Afghanistan
    - fighting half a dozen proxy wars in Africa
    - the drug war continues
    - weaponized drones flying over American cities
    - the CPI will breach 5%, with real inflation closer to 20%
    - gold will be over $3500/oz
    - oil will reach $150/barrel
    - selective price controls will be imposed, resulting in shortages, lines, and rationing
    - the top marginal income tax rate will be at least 45%

    Wow- kind of a doomsday scenario, but if you extrapolate current trends...

    Those are exactly the markers Republicans should be demanding of Obabble...tell us where your policies will lead us...give us your goals and predictions...and then own them like a MAN.

    How many times are you people going to do the whole "Doomsday Scenario" thing?

    4 years ago, you all said the EXACT same things.

    Don't you all ever get tired of being wrong?
