    Benjamin Roth: The Great Depression: A Diary
    It's all here, times change people don't -the endless govt programs that fail to stimulate the private sector -the ups and downs of the economy, the veterans pension stimulates just as the housing credit did, until of course the money runs out -Roth is a attorney in Youngstown Ohio who kept a diary regarding the economy from 1930 until WW II breaks out, he is objective, candid, and forthright which is more than we get from Washington DC now or then highly recommended

Biases are socio economic, cultural and geographic. In my blue state we have fewer (but vocal) reds who abhor the cities yet control the land, crops and water. Guess who wins when food distribution gets tight? What 4 letter word did Obama use that Romney did not? Liar perhaps?

Fromn Dick Morris who was quite wrong on the toucome. I expect the rhetoric to get ocnsiderably worse, which was my point, not to take political sides. The fact that a negative campaign was a winner says a lot bout the mood of the country.

By focusing on the negative, Obama sacrificed first his personal popularity and then his dignity and presidentiality. No longer was he the hope and the change. He became nothing more than a nasty partisan, throwing epithets at his rival. A president does not let himself be quoted as saying that his opponent is a “bullsh–ter” or that voting is the best “revenge.” Even his dress was wrong. Instead of appearing in a dark suit, he dressed in an open-neck white shirt, trying to be everyman but succeeding only in not looking like a president.
