  •  if the unemployment situation gets better (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Democrats win. Today's announcement of reduced unemployment appears to be BLS gaming the stats, with an after-the-fact readjustment of the numbers to something that looks like reality coming to a Friday news dump to a news media outlet near you.

    I expect unemployment to be significantly worse. Whether or not BLS admits it will be irrelevant. I also expect the efforts to pump up equities via QE to blow up in Bernacke's face. And that the wealthy will profit behind having advance notice of when things will blow and unloading on dumb money beforehand.

    Many more worthless 401Ks, pension funds, and more unemployment is a perfect storm for the Democratic Party.

    •  It cant get "better enough" in time (0+ / 0-)

      And frankly other than using a plan i developed (which didnt make anyone in washington rich) there was no way we could recover in time. (and never will so long as free trade is in place). He will run on his personality and people will have forgotten his mistakes and be confronted with a worse alternative next time. He will win because the gop knows it has no chance in hell and both parties put their second string up when that happens.
