I agree that there's no guarantee, but the chances that the natural business cycle and the determination of American capitalists will overcome the economic morass created by the Obama administration over the next few years are far greater than the chances that Obama will face the entitlement time bomb that's headed our way with any real seriousness.
The real question will be how close is any growth that might take place in a 2nd Obama term to the maximum growth that was possible and, IMO, it's very unlikely to be close.
