We are in worse political shape not worse fiscal shape. Since we can print our own foreign excahange we can continue fiscal irresonsibility far longer than any other country, and have. Other countries face foreign exchange constraints that force them to reform. We don't until China decides they don't want dollars.

If Obama wins this is what we will do.
