Think about it! A man who is a caricature of the Gordon Gekko culture that has invaded our (middle class) wealth since productivity has steadily waned since the 70's. There's nowhere to get it, but from each and everyone one of us through means of wage reductions, benefits being slashed and so on and so forth. (see banking mortgage mess as being a prime example)

By Mitt Romney not being elected has to be the greatest thing, IMHO, that has ever happened to America. I think it shows that the general populace is finally getting it. Also, in all this, i predict there will be a new era of "unionism" but with far-reaching implications.

That's all....good day and thank you Lord sweet baby Jesus!

In this clip, Jesse Ventura calls Romney a real-life Gordon Gekko, and makes some other good points along the way. I think he is correct.

Greatest thing to ever happen... I put that right there with Obama being the worst thing that every happened, unnecessary hyperbole unsupported by history.

I'm glad Romney lost, but I wouldn't say it's the 'greatest thing that ever happened to America.' Leave the hyperbole to stand-up comedians.

ETA: I hate it when someone beats me to the punch. Yeah, you ovcatto!.

I dont see how you or any so called expert can look at the last four years and come to the conclusion that the middle class will be better off with Obama in office.

So you're saying that congressional republicans will continue to obstruct? Possibly they will ease up a bit.

Congressional repubs may change their ways. As Joe Biden said "Get out of the way!". Think that will happen?
