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.
Could be, or American capitalists could merely stockpile cash and assets and ride out the storm, rather than invest and create jobs. An Obama victory means continued uncertainty, and businesses will certainly prepare for worst case scenarios.
And I completely agree with the bolded part of your statement. A 2nd Obama term rules out any chance of achieving maximum growth.
