If obama is re-elected Europe will be in great shape next year. There will not be anyone doing business in or with the US.

It’s not the European economy that is the problem, it’s debt pure and simple.

You can spend your days writing stories and headlines deflecting the one simple truth, and leave everyone continually wondering why it is we are stuck in this same rut.
The Irish, Greeks, Portugese, Spaniards, French, or Italians can’t all possibly be to blame here.

Nobody wants to talk about this, and nobody wants to take a loss.
If you issue debt and can’t recoup your investment, shouldn’t you take the loss, and not the rest of the world ??

Absolutely ghoulish what you people are putting the world through.

In the midst of all the election craze and all thank you. It is the debt. Ours being the most wicked of all at over 16T, 6T of that in the last 4 years alone and on track for 20T if we do not change…as I said, who would want to do business in and with a country like that. Not me…

@totherepublic, your comment is full of creed and empty rhetoric. Having high debt does not mean countries will not do business with you. The US has the highest PP in the world and that will never change. Come back to reality please.

I don’t think you understand, it’s debt, both public and private, that
has the world economy mired. This has nothing to do with any D or R fantasy put forth. We are debt saturated the world over.
