    If Romney wins, we all have to hope he is the best president the nation has ever had and prosperity and peace will reign over the land. To wish him failure would identify one as an anti-American traitor and dirty dog of he lowest stripe.

    I hope Obama wins yet to me it looks tied and Romney will have hedge funds, big mid eastern oil funded corporations and big pharma donating hundreds of millions to PACs. Obama's economic policies hurt countries like China while he supports legislations for our manufacturing base and increased exports so I would think China would be funneling money into the Romney campaign.

    I hope Obama wins ...yet whoever wins I just hope it is clear cut win and not some electoral ties or one states tied that would would make a difference and then we spend millions recounting votes.

    I want whomever wins to win the popular vote and a clear electoral win so the outcome is clear. It would be nice to conclude that evening when all the ballots are in and start moving forward with whomever is the winner.

    Why do people put faith in polls that run so close it is statistically insignificant.

    To me it looks close and anything could happen. I do not want to see another replay of Bush/Gore with recounts and one wins the popular vote and one wins the electoral vote and recounts of Florida and Ohio and allegations of fraud. How much did that mess cost the tax payers?

    Interesting. So when he brings out his policy goals of lowering taxes, reducing the regulatory burden, and reforming Medicare into a premium support model, you will be cheering along?

    There's a world of options between "cheering on" and "hoping America suffers because it makes the president look bad"

    There is indeed. But I was asking if he would want Romney to succeed in enacting his policy agenda.

    You are not understanding. He says we have to hope that the policies implemented succeed, not that he implements certain policies.

    I know; but he was implicitly denying the same logic to Republicans. I wanted to make sure he spelled out precisely what you just did so that I could demonstrate that his assumption there was incorrect.

    So you are denying the great glee many republicans have when reporting bad economic numbers this year? No one said they want Obama's policies to fail? That is the kind of thing he is talking about.
