They’ll probably be looking at what the polls are saying. If it looks like I’m going to win, the markets will be happy. If it looks like the president’s going to win, the markets should not be terribly happy. It depends of course which markets you’re talking about, which types of commodities and so forth, but my own view is that if we win on November 6th, there will be a great deal of optimism about the future of this country. We’ll see capital come back and we’ll see—without actually doing anything—we’ll actually get a boost in the economy. If the president gets reelected, I don’t know what will happen. I can—I can never predict what the markets will do. Sometimes it does the exact opposite of what I would have expected.
Next Mitt will be telling us he farts rainbows and pink fairies who will fix everything. We’ll get a boost in the economy without actually doing anything? Seriously? Mitt Romney is delusional. Or is he? Does he know what we have all suspected….corporations are deliberately withholding jobs to cause Obama to fail.
Mitt has a plan for the country….just not the plan you might hope for. Since he won’t give specifics, I’ll do it for him:
- He’ll give tax breaks to the rich
- Cut out tax exemptions for home mortgage interest
- Gut education
- Gut Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security
- Gut Health Care Reform
- He’ll insult our allies and make new enemies
- He’ll be president only to the rich and sneer with disdain at the poor
- He’ll set women’s rights back 50 years
You’ve been warned.
