I agree with this. I don't think we need a bloated government program to get the economy back on track -- that never works. However, we need some leadeship and some certainty on taxes, regulation, etc. Maybe some incentives for small business.

I don't understand how there are so many candidates at this point, they know for four years that the election is coming, you think in that timeframe they could fine one or two quality ones that they know they are going to market all the way.

Perception from abroad

This is how mighty America is now seen in Europe, based on a story in the Economist:

Might America, as so often in the past, provide a locomotive for global growth in 2012? Sadly not. That is partly because the economy, on closer inspection, is less speedy than it first appears. But it is also because America's politicians look likely to do nothing whatsoever to help growth in 2012. Indeed, the immediate priority is to stop them doing yet more harm to it.

Even if this do-nothing 112th Congress manages to avoid mutilating the economy, it seems unlikely to do anything to help it. It looks clear that nothing of substance will be passed till after the presidential election on November 6th. This is both a disgrace and a tragedy: there are plenty of ideas that could boost employment. Schemes to back small businesses, set up an infrastructure bank or offer assistance for firms that hire the long-term unemployed are all marooned. Federal aid to the states, all of whom are having to pass tough budgets which will further contract demand, won't be restarted.

How accurate do you think it is?

Perhaps it is related to their abilities to create drama over the most inane little things. Or else it is just the quality and quantity of their shoes.

Strangely, I can't tell if the debates or the Real House Wives of Beverly Hills will have a bigger impact on the future of our country....
