Doug Wead: A Mitt Romney Win?Submitted by DJP333 on Mon, 11/05/2012 - 14:21
“The time will come when the constitution and government will hang by a brittle thread and will be ready to fall into other hands but this people, the latter-day saints will step forth and save it.”
- Joseph Smith, May, 1843.
If history is any indicator Mitt Romney will win tomorrow’s election. Yes, the polls show it close and the electoral map actually tilts in President Obama’s favor but never before in history has a president been returned to power with such a dismal economic performance.
1.) Unemployment has remained high.
2.) The housing crisis remains untouched, crushing the middle class. Even the smallest tweaks expected by the real estate community within 90 days of the inauguration of Obama have been consistently ignored for the full four years.
3.) Real inflation is appalling and has robbed the poor and the retired on fixed incomes. I say “real inflation,” as opposed to the new government-media revised fake figures, redesigned to help rescue the failing presidency of George W. Bush, figures that now exclude food and oil prices, the two most basic factors in our economic lives.
