“It’s the economy, stupid” is a slight variation of the phrase “The economy, stupid” which James Carville had coined as a campaign strategist of Bill Clinton’s successful 1992 presidential campaign against sitting president George Bush.
How true it was, and how true it is.
The upcoming U.S. presidential election is no joke. It has had hundreds of millions of dollars thrown into it. These two guys, Obama and Romney know the drill. At the end of the day, if the Sheeple aren’t fat and happy, there will be hell to pay. It’s ALWAYS about the money.
So, here is a simple observation. The present economy is dire, stagnant at best; despite what the main stream media tries to tell us. We all know it.
The current sitting president is in deep $hit based on a new national USA TODAY/Gallup Poll, which said,
By more than 2-1, 63%-29%, those surveyed say Romney’s background in business, including his tenure at the private equity firm Bain Capital, would cause him to make good decisions, not bad ones, in dealing with the nation’s economic problems over the next four years.
Did you get that? 2 – 1 margin?
So, what’s Obama to do?
In my opinion, simple as it is, he MUST kick the can further down the road by unleashing Ben Bernanke to further printing of ‘funny money’ a.k.a. QE3 (Quantitative Easing… round #3), if he hopes to win the election in November. There’s not much time left.
Is there another way?
Only one as I see it, although a bit less beneficial for re-election chances… get involved in a MAJOR WAR. Americans prefer to keep their sitting president in times of war, generally speaking.
Here’s an idea…
What if he (Obama) decides to do both? Then he’s a ‘shoe-in’, right?
Beware the 2nd half of 2012. There are lots of reasons why it may not be so good…
Are you prepared?
