    ... that Obama is no Carter, nor is Romney a Reagan.  

    That said, the similarities in the nation's situation abound.  A Republican governor running against a Democratic incumbent; unemployment in the pooper; housing market weak; the Middle East in uproar; U.S. embassies under attack; U.S. influence upon the world lessening; rising fuel prices (remember the whining when gas hit a buck a gallon?  Checked the pump price lately?); grocery prices outrunning wages; government growth outrunning the private-sector economy.  And, like Carter, Obama came into office supported by a lot of voters who usually didn't vote Democratic, and he failed to deliver, or at the very least, he failed to satisfy their expectations, realistic or not.

    Do I believe Romney will fix all our problems?  No.  Do I think he'll win in November?  Probably so.  The economy almost guarantees it.    

    No matter which man wins, I'll hope and pray that America does well under his watch.

      government growth outrunning the private-sector economy
      Private sector job growth, private sector profits, etc. are at high if not record levels.
