Optimal Binders Full of Fail

I was 32 when Regan won his first term, and remember the ridicule heaped upon him by the Press and the Democrats. The same thing seems to be happening today with Romney. Jimmy Carter's Presidency was "almost" as bad as Obama's is today. Just as Carter was a fail on foreign policy, so is Obama. Just as Carter tried to run the USA economy on Keynesian principals and failed, so has Obama. It's said that History repeats itself. Looks like that saying is true.

I just read "Wealth and Poverty" by George Gilder. It was published in 1981. Diane, you're right, and it's darn scarey.

Diane, the major difference between the two presidencies is that inflation was sky high under Carter. Reagan had to fix that. Under Obama inflation is still low. It is artificially held low with the potential to jump into the stratosphere. If Romney can get a handle on that, the economy can be turned in the right direction easier than Carter's train wreck.

Inflation is coming. No avoiding it; the conditions for hyperinflation have been assembled, and it IS coming. Probably will materialize in the next two years, or slightly more. Of course, Dems will blame the Romney team. If Repubs attempt to implement austerity measures to bring down deficits, Dems will stoke the fires of unrest, without limitations (I.E. riots, etc.). It's predictable behavior for the Left, which is defined by radicalism.
I suspect the 'artificially' inflated stock markets will tumble as well. We still have a long road ahead of us towards getting better. And mark my words: The Left will put barricade after barricade in front of us to make the Right look incompetent.
Now that the mask is off, they will be much more bold.

Progressives are not having a good week.

After a debate “victory” for President Obama, which amounted to simply being caffeinated because the bar was set so low after the first debate, his Libya lies are still haunting him. Yes, moderator Candy Crowley saved his bacon in the moment, but she ended up costing him by forcing a reluctant media to continue to cover the story. He may have won the night, but he lost the week because of it.

Had the president simply taken responsibility for his administration’s security failures, apologized, said it would haunt him and shape his actions...
