Well I don't know will -- because even if Romney wins in what's gonna change but the atmosphere in DC -- still going to be to parties that don't agree on very much higher.
I don't think it's a question of the two parties agreeing or disagreeing so much is trying to get something done in -- -- and -- this is just shown us that there's a failure and keynesian economics I think you can't just.
Spin your way out of a recession I mean if you.
Read Paul Krugman who I think is retarded you don't -- -- it will not but I.
I don't know to -- city fire yeah well and his outlook UK it didn't work right okay better it doesn't work.
So he keeps banging on the same -- it isn't go to work so if the president comes back -- does the same thing all over again it's not go to work you're gonna have unemployment did.
Seven or 8%.
And that with Mitt Romney would still have to deal with with rancorous Democrats and that you know and Republicans are can be equally rancorous.

Think the mortgage deduction people know that if they buy a house they gonna get a certain amount of -- tax deduction for the interest they pay on the mortgage.

Forget about is that they have -- that removed again to go back to that the election where people say art.
Romney's elected or Obama's beckoned for four years so we it doesn't necessarily move remove the uncertainty on Election Day doesn't there's a lot of -- well you've got its fiscal close down -- -- -- they gotta do something somebody has to do something yes because that uncertainty is gonna.
If that you would have the certainty of any kind even if it's bad news is better than uncertainty.

11 thing -- please don't tell the truth.
One thing that either these -- can do that they would days to create jobs.
One thing there they got what did create jobs and nothing did nothing I don't think anyone have -- when do anything like that and when we disagree for now it's economically challenged I believe is what we're gonna go with our at our I don't see at the same way and a confidence that -- -- have a -- -- cash.
