Whenever a Democrat has been president in my lifetime, somehow it always feels like a distraction or aberration of some kind. That's been the case with Carter, Clinton and Obama. Somehow, those presidencies didn't feel "normal" or "right".

Do you think that when a Republican gets elected, then America will once again return to its core values?

Uh.... Ever consider that what feels "right" is dependent upon your political leanings?

And do you really believe that America was "normal" during the eight years of Bush as President?

America is now heavily addicted to govt largesse, condescension, "help", and bribes.

Simply withdrawing those things, will result in massive withdrawl symptoms, protests (egged along by a uniformly hostile media), screaming, and even chaos.

The Democrat party will do everything in their power to make sure the country does NOT return to "normal" for a very long time, if ever.

There are actually wackos out there who believe the country is on the right track with Obama in office. You expect logical and honest answers here?

HA! This should get good.

Bush's big flaw was the Iraq war. If that unfortunate mistake hadn't happened, then he would have been quite a normal president.

if by "core values" you mean a state run for corporations, by corporations, then yes.

of course, i wouldn't want to diminish all the work the Democrats have done in hollowing out America in favor of multinationals, but they just can't compete with the GOP's organization and propaganda.

Oh yeah, because Republicans were so fiscally responsible during the Bush years.

I think the anxiety level in the private sector, where jobs are created, will lessen significantly. There's about a trillion dollars on the sidelines waiting to be put to good commercial use, but too many would-be investors don't know what the next dollar they're gonna earn will cost 'em. Also, any Republican -even Romney- will sandbag Obamacare. That alone will improve prospects for an economic recovery. That said, the Left-wing in this country will be in a state of buttlock.
