    I believe some decisions of Romney's could better impact the United States than our current President. However, should the economy improve (and it will), it would be more from its own mechanisms than through the policies of most able-Presidents.

    Though not nearly as far as I would like, Romney more represents the idea that it is up to us to make what we can of our own lives, and not to depend on government to do it for us.
    Really? he represents that mindset, or you just like to say he does because it fits your motif.

    I am hoping in Obama's second term he pushes for some large nationalized infrastructure building project. Perhaps solar-panels or windfarms or hell I'd even be happy with more oil refineries. But some large national project that could stimulate the economy by not only providing jobs to build it but all the other benefits as well.

    You misunderstand me. The popular perception is that Republicans are radically laissez-faire. Therefore, when the crash comes, it is crucial that a Republican not be in the Oval Office, because blame will shift to genuine fiscal conservatism. Ideally, the Democrats would also hold majorities in the House and Senate, to cement the accurate perception that big government is the problem.

    I wonder where the money for that project would come from. The Chinese, maybe?

    Good point. In this case, "Better off" is very subjective. Do we want a president of the United States, or do we want a king of Obamica? The Left seems to prefer the latter....

    I'm still waiting on my "stimulus" check. I'll decide after I receive it.

    President Obama is going to save us all.

    He just needs four more years.
