    It's no problem, and I don't personally find it very insulting personally but rather a bit more sad. I don't think it was your intention to be insulting, but I was just more wanting to point out how you basically have a near cartoonish stereotype of a conservative in your head based on what you immediately leapt to.

    The next handful of years are going to be critical in determining our nations' fiscal future. As someone with kids, I'd say I'm pretty invested in that.

    I'm pretty invested. But it's my job, so I kinda have to be.

    I'm moderately invested emotionally. I have a lot of problems with Obama and his policies, so I'm not as emotionally invested as I could be. However, I think the GOP would put our country on a worse path and I would be pretty unhappy if they got the white house and/or Congress.

    I would be disappointed if Romney lost, but I wouldn't lose much sleep over it.

    Picked mildly because although I won't vote for the names on the ballot, I feel we can do much better than the names on the ballot. Romney is pathetic in every way but truthfully, I don't see Obama as having a purpose at this point either. Lost hope in him years ago.

    While I prefer Obama, Romney is not scarey enough to effect me emotionally. Not much will change either way.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Well, of course, it's a surprise to all of us, but I have to say Mr President, of all the forums you could have chosen, debatepolitics was chosen well . At least here you can be honest about your political lean.

    I don't find myself much invested in this one. My feeling is that the next four years is going to be the same no matter who is chosen.

    My real hope is that congress continues to be divided after the next election. The conservatives have gotten to angry and determined on their end that if it wasn't they would swing to the right, which would then cause a reaction, causing the next group to swing further to the left, which means even further to the right next time around, and its a spiral that I would like to avoid. I hope we take our collective breath as a nation and everyone calms the **** down.

    The only fun thing about this whole election is watching all my progressive friends have a fit because I am voting Romney, lol.
