Very well said and true.
Actually toolmaker started this crap 2 months ago citing what are underground, online "news" services that supposedly quoted some congressman of filing impeachment papers. Course it's so incredulous that no real news sources ever reported such silly junk.
The thing that really excites me about all of this is that in addition to dismissing this obviosuly ludicrous pronouncement, Romney should be given a shot. Then when he hoses things up even more, people will be begging for Obama who at least kept us out of a major depression. Romney will have all of the pieces in place to get to that point should he win. Failing U.S economy, failing world economy, pressure from the Syrians, North Koreans and splinter groups of Al Qaida all over the world, immigration, cutting benefits to the elderly, etc. etc. etc. The list is so long that Romney's administration will crumble under the weight of it and of course Americans will blame the Republicans, just like they blame the Democrats now. If anyone thinks that a single person is going to into office in this day and time and solve the massive issues facing us and the world...imagine a long pipe, closed on both ends, filled with a dream.
So hideous are the prospects for the future of the U.S. and the world, that the idea anyone would want to be in charge is somehow totally strange to me. "Sure. Let me take a crack at it." Good luck, cowboy.
Compromise was very common in congress and actually how it got things done until the republican revolution of 1994. That group came in with the "we will not compromise" matra and republicans have held to that ever since. I think Democrats in general but not always have been open to compromise and still are.
Put up the white flag.
the major depression comes with the next four years
I don't know if it will be a depression per se, but the forecast is bad (beyond any president's control):
"The slowdown of Baby Boomers will continue to force deleveraging," Dent says, citing the demographic force behind his gloomy outlook. "92 million Baby Boomers will work less and save more no matter what [the government does]."
That, in turn, will put downward pressure on the economy and, critically keep the housing market in retreat. (See: "Housing Is Dead": Bubble Still Bursting Here and Abroad, Says Harr... )
Continued weakness in housing -- along with Europe's debt crisis -- will lead to a repeat of the 2008 credit crisis, Dent predicts, only this time the Fed and Uncle Sam won't be able to stop it. "We see a second downturn where the banking system will meltdown, real estate will fall further and a lot of debt will be written off." http://finance.yahoo.com/blogs/daily-ticker/debt-deleveraging-demog...
The baby boomer generation comprises a big chunk of the US (spending) population. We can't prevent them from retiring or dying off. Generation Xers are not known to be great spenders and we certainly don't have the brand loyalty that is characteristic of the previous generation. Companies now are even more vulnerable to competitions.
Europe said that they are not cutting back on anything.
Who would bail out a country with a attitude like that?
But they did bail them out.
So? We were bailed out as well.
We are going to inflate the dollar by our barrowing and not crash the euro.

It's nice that both sides are acknowledged but what is this all about?
