    When its a matter of speculation vs. hard data... I'll go with the data. But of course none of it will matter after the actual election.

    Oh, I am sure that Barack Obama is a great guy as well. And a real American success story. No dispute from me - I agree with that sentiment.

    Just a crappy president who is in way over his head. And outsourcing legislation and leadership initiatives to Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid was a monumental mistake. And absolutely no understanding of or appreciation for American enterprise and how enterprise makes government initiatives stronger and the tax base more robust.
