Looking at the news coverage, the Republicans are a mess.
Obama will pump the economy with more credit; people will think the recession (correction) is over. But when the election is over, things will start to get ugly again.
All over the world politicians use this same old formula, because it gets them re-elected.
Obama is the best man for the job, because he will not have to worry about re-election. He will want to go down in history as a president that did something remarkable, like ending or starting a war or trying to fix the economy.
I must check what the odds are in the betting shops.
