The rot will not end by any foreseeable election.....

Why even follow the results Tuesday? Oba mama has Wall Street money because he hired and covered their crooked asses.

Bet on Wall Street!

Oba mama should win the electoral college vote no matter what. The only surprise I have is that Romney, a Mormon is doing so well in the south. I'll blame it on Ryan, a deficit hawk, who would shut down the economy just to score political points. (NO budget cuts are ever mentioned because no cuts are coming. Even the idiots in Congress are afraid of the geezers. Remember Catastrophic health care? Google it.)

Or is it because he's a fanatic and believes the nonsense spewed out about budget deficits bankrupting us? (we should live so long!!)

This is just not an America that any of us should want to live in. It is a country whose economic basis is oligarchy, whose political system is authoritarianism, and whose political culture is murderous toward the rest of the world and suicidal in our aggressive lack of attention to climate change. Many will claim that Obama was stymied by a Republican Congress. But the primary policy framework Obama put in place — the bailouts — took place during the transition and the immediate months after the election, when Obama had enormous leverage over the Bush administration and then a dominant Democratic Party in Congress. In fact, during the transition itself, Bush’s Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson offered a deal to Barney Frank, to force banks to write down mortgages and stem foreclosures if Barney would speed up the release of TARP money. Paulson demanded, as a condition of the deal, that Obama sign off on it. Barney said fine, but to his surprise, the incoming president vetoed the deal. Yup, you heard that right...........
