Did you really just pounce on a thing I said and draw completely the wrong conclusion because I hadn't spelled it out to the letter? People use the excuse of the global economy as a reason why their domestic economy hasn't done better. Sure, global trade and markets have some impact on a country's economic picture, but it's not the whole story. I especially found it interesting how with the recent troubles in Europe, American commentators were blaming that on America's poor economic performance. When in fact that helps the US, if investors move from the Euro to the perceived safe haven of US dollars and treasuries, then that keeps interest rates low for the US government.Agree's that he can't fix global recession, then claims it's a cop-out. Really? Really? Did you just do that?
Why would you trust Obama more? He's one of the top beneficiaries of finance industry campaign contributions.The US could, and SHOULD start fixing it's problems. But you see the problem is there is lot's of people in the finance industry who don't want the problems fixed, and they buy politicians to ensure they don't act against their interests. Anytime someone tries to do something, they get blocked. It's a shitty situation, but I's trust Obama a lot more than "I'm a job creator (who created jobs overseas) with dodgy offshore accounts" Romney.
