You want to see the future of the US: come to Europe. Over here they're broke, but they've accepted it. I guess we'll get used to mediocrity as well.
Ordinarily, I'd hold out some hope for the debates, but by then I think we'll be out of undecided voters. I had not thought it possible for BHO to be re-elected. By any objective and historical standard (or even by standards he layed out earlier in his term) he manifestly doesn't deserve it, but we seemed poised to walk into the fire pit. What we are about to do makes no sense and constitutes an economic death wish. You Dems please enjoy the election night party as smiles will be in short supply soon enough.
