The issue is all about economics! Lets see how the parties measure up.
Pedro Santa-Clara
Nova School of Business and Economics; National Bureau of Economic Research
(NBER); Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR)
Rossen I. Valkanov
University of California, San Diego (UCSD)- Rady School of Management

Pedro Santa Clara and Rossen Valkanov Concurred that the democrats fared better than the republicans by a wide margin. Democrats had consistent above average returns. Most Republicans had lower than average returns and greater volatility.
Santa Clara and Valkanov attribute the difference in returns to the stock markets being systematically and positively surprised to discover that democratic polices in a 80 year time frame of quantifiable data, are the best economic stewards for the nation. Differences are substantial.
Democrats had a respectable average return of 9.6% as when compared to republicans 0.58% average returns. If an employee’s 401[K] plan was fully invested in stocks at a value of $100,000, at the beginning of the employee’s 40 years of labor, apply this to both parties for returns.
Republicans Nest egg would have accumulated $224,375.
Democrates Nest Egg would have accumulated $ 3,912,210.
Now at $5,000, initial nest egg investment.
Republicans Nest Egg would have accumulated $126,027.
Democrats Nest Egg would have accumulated $1,985,526.

Which supports Debt To GDP figures. Last 4 years of Bush attributed 20.7% to debt to GDP. Obama of the 3 years has a Debt to GDP of 15.1%. A reduction to debt of 5.6% in spite of all the sabotaging efforts’ of the republicans.{ Hostage/Ransom} scenarios.
Republican’s present financial planning is similar to Herbert Hoover/ Bush…?

Don't confuse a do nothing Congress....with republican House members, that planned the retarding of this country's economic recovery, to promote their own partisan, political agenda.....the betrayal was much less innocent, than do nothing....

Obama has been a failure for 4 years, and you should be ashamed of yourself for supporting the proven failure, unless, of course, you are also one. Oh, that's right...you are. LOL

Please people think long and hard before you vote for Obama again. He has attempted to divide this country economically, socially, by race and now by religion. We are one country who might not agree on everything but we need to be brought together by our president not pitted against one another. Think about the fact that he agreed with Occupy Wallstreet's rebellion and thinks of America as the rich and the poor. We need opportunity and he hasn't created that. He wants to socialize our country which is not why are are such a great country. We are a great country because we offer opportunity for all to succeed if you work hard.
