    but if the euro falls dramatically the market here is going to take a big hit. We're too close now for it to have a direct impact on a lot of things before the election, but it would at least shift the news narrative back to OMGOMGOMGOMG THE ECONOMY IS SOOOOOO BADDDDDDD

      If nobody wants to put their money in Europe, they put it here.

      to stabilize the system there between now and the U.S. election.  Even the ECB is taking steps they wouldn't have considered a few months ago, and individual European leaders (notably Angela Merkel and Mario Draghi) have stated publicly that they don't want to do anything that would "impact the American election."  Of course our elections are not the only reason they're trying to keep the Eurozone falling apart, but it's one of them.

      They don't want Romney to win the presidency any more than we do.  To them, he's an unknown quantity that they don't trust.

        but also ardently anti-Europe in the same way Bush was. Romney would have no qualms about acting withing considering Europe in ways that Obama has not.
