Just to be clear, I think there is a VERY high percentage that the economy recovers in the '13'16 timeframe no matter who we elect. Sure, there's plenty that could screw that up -- Europe's woes worsening or, JFC, a dirty bomb in NYC -- but just based on things that are mostly under our control, the economy should improve.
How much more under one versus the other becomes the real question. Is deregulation really a great idea given how badly the banks screwed up so recently? Are the Republicans going to once again "charge" economic growth on the nation's credit card, ignoring the deficit, as they have done in the past?
Frankly, I don't love or hate either candidate, really, so it's a pretty close call for me. Lots of plusses and minuses for both in my book.
Most here view one or the other as the Anti-Christ, but I don't. Claims that Obama is some kind of Anti-American Islamic Socialist are just lunacy.
I'm completely in agreement with you, by the way. I think both candidates are good candidates, and the U.S. economy will continue to improve under either, for the short term. I do tend to think that more regulation is vitally necessary for our economy's long-term stability, that austerity is unnecessary at this moment, and that stimulus remains helpful at this point in a small dosages.
