Let the Supreme Court decide. That’s real democracy in action.

The markets want a clear winner so they know which way they are going to go, up, or, down. Obama wins, market will go down, Romney wins, market will go up. However, I can see the election results being plagued with problems so we’ll probably see the results contested because of the mess the hurricane left behind in the northeast. I’d like to see a clear winner, we’ll see.

The markets are idiotic. Who cares what they want. These are markets that swing 400 points on news from a Greek head-scratching meeting…. each week. The markets are going to do what they’re going to do. They can work around us.

Historically the market has done better when a democrat is in the White House.

Many economies are in massive debt, including the US. Despite this markets are rising. At some point they will tank and it won’t be pretty.

Is that because the fraudsters running “the markets” want to know if they’ll be getting the next fix of money magicked out of thin air by the US Fed?

Just remember the last time the Fed ‘engineered’ matters – they caused the Great Depression – deliberately! The next one is being lined up..

Obama had a supreme opportunity to win reelection by showing real leadership when hurricane Sandy hit. This was his moment. What an opportunity. He blew it. Instead, he settled for a quick drop in for a photo op and then back to he campaign trail. There are people still with no food, water, electricity and they have not seen FEMA. If Obama were a real compassionate leader he would be on the ground in these devastated areas with a mega phone demanding that FEMA get in and start helping these people. Obama would not have allowed for Alabama Power trucks and crews be told to go home by the union thugs. If Obama really cared for the people he would have stood for the poeple and not the unions. What a shame. If Obama really cared for the people he would not be spending this afternoon playing basketball and sitting at home watching the election. While Sandy victims are in desperate situations he has abandoned them and is living the life of Riley. He must be defeated.

Bretfox, you’re regurgitating tea party chain e-mails now. That story about Alabama Power getting turned away has been de-bunked about 30 times now…. By Alabama Power. You teabaggers need some new material. Obama = 2-term President.

Great, honest responses. Except for Bretfox, the teabagger. Romney with a megaphone, in the trenches? I think not. Obama needed to stay on the trail to insure the middle class survives. No matter, in a few hrs, Mitzy can go back to Wall St, party with his cronies and apoligize to the Koch Bros.
