That's how the paper companies are staying in business.

No way I'm eating a chinese twinkie. That creamy white filling is the same color as dry wall.

Actual Obama Ad: "Your First Time"

from what I understand, the second time doesn't hurt as much.
We have no idea what Romney will do, but we all know what Obama will do. He'll start a war with some muslim rathole cuz the French tell him to and haul some hapless unknown youtube producer off to jail after they retaliate. He'll sell guns to drug lords. He'll squander billions on green energy corporations and millions on CEO bonuses for the ones that go bankrupt. He'll get together with the russians and do something he won't be able to disclose until his second term. He'll spend trillions on stimulus and create 12,000 jobs. He'll keep big bird sucking on the gov't teat. He'll keep every woman barren. And if anything (everything) goes wrong, he'll blame Bush.
IMHO, neither Clinton or Gingrich balanced the budget. The budget was balanced thanks to the bubble in the nasdaq which was caused in part by a change to banking rules. In 1994, banks were suddenly allowed to keep essentially nothing in reserve as they swept money from account to account. That sudden influx of cash had to go somewhere. It went into hedge funds (eg LTCM) and daytrader accounts. It shouldn't be a surprise that the gov't's income (and spending) increased substantially during the bubble years and deflated (just the income) slowly as bagholders dutifully subtracted 3k from their income for years afterward. Clinton and Newt balanced the budget. Unfortunatey their new economy had all the permanence of a breath on a mirror.
