Economist assert that Obama is the clear winner

Posted in interesting by moneymanagement on August 2, 2008

Disclaimer: I have no interest in American politics except for annoyance for the amount of space they occupy in the media to which I am adding some more.

From a dispassionate viewers point it seems to me that Obama is the natural winner. He is young charismatic, has great ideas, perfect for bringing USA back to its glory days where they touted everyone had an equal chance of succeeding in America – the nation of dreams.

McCain on the other hand is everything Obama is not and he is even trying to take support of the young ‘uns in his party namely Bobby Jindal. The only thing that he seems to have in his favour is that he is a Republican.

The problem lies not in the fact there are more republican voters in USA but that more republican vote than Democratics. The Democratics consider themselves too intellectual to vote (Please do correct me if I am wrong).

So to add to my argument a newspiece on yahoo says that economic models predict that Obama is the clear winner.

Three separate studies showed the Democratic presidential hopeful winning between 52 and 55 percent of the popular vote on November 4, based on current gloomy economic estimates.

Any further darkening in the economic outlook — many analysts think things will get worse between now and November — would reinforce that election outcome.

    The same econometric models predicted that Gore would win by 15-20 points.

    And Dems not voting had nothing to do with intellect; those who don’t vote are more likely to be black, hispanic, and/or young — these groups also tend to be Dem.

    McCain is (just like the republican party has been for 8 years) completely out of touch with the american people.

    Just the other day he made a speach about how he plans to build 240 nuclear plants in the next ten years. There are so many problems with this statement that I dont even know where to begin.

    1. The US has not built a new nuclear facility in over thirty years not one. And its not that they haven’t tried its just that no one ever wants one in their backyard. They always get voted down.

    2. He doesn’t understand that what americans want is clean renewable energy and that is the way we ought to go period.
