It appears to be motivated more by a crisis of confidence within Germany than to be any reflection on America.

**********
Andreas Dombret, a member of the Executive Board of the Deutsche Bundesbank, the German equivalent of the Federal Reserve, called a demand by German politicians and the country's federal Court of Auditors to audit Germany's gold reserves now being held in the U.S., "a discussion driven by irrational fears."

During a reception sponsored by the Bundesbank Representative Office in New York City, Dombret said, "I wish to warn against voluntarily adding fuel to the general sense of uncertainty among the German public in times like these by conducting a ‘phantom debate' on the safety of our gold reserves."

"....Thus, we are now looking back at 60 years not only of fruitful cooperation in many fields and international fora, but also of sorting gold and trading via the New York Fed," Dombret said. "As a matter of fact, it is sensible for us to do so in New York, as Frankfurt is not a gold trading venue."

"Throughout these 60 years, we have never encountered the slightest problem, let alone had any doubts concerning the credibility of the Fed. And for this, Bill [Dudley], I would like to thank you personally," Dombret declared. "I am also grateful for your uncomplicated cooperation in so many matters. The Bundesbank will remain the Fed's trusted partner in the future, and we will continue to take advantage of the Fed's services by storing some of our currency reserves as gold in New York."

Well, I took a chance and voted for 'bullshit mitt'. Not sure how bad he will be, but I've already seen what a f*ck up barry is. Judgement call.
'Bout the only reason I voted for the frickin mormon is because he said he'd repeal obamacare.

Prediction of Rocco Pendola, writer at TheStreet:

"As I explained last week....Hurricane Sandy, particularly N.J. Gov. Chris Christie's more-than-positive response to Washington's support, cinched the election for Barack Obama.

"This put Mitt Romney in the unfortunate situation of having to a.) step out of the spotlight and b.) put the gloves back on. That, alongside ultimately lame Fox News-fueled attempts to make Libya a campaign issue and somewhat upbeat jobs numbers of late, tipped the scales in favor of the incumbent.

"Obama seals the deal relatively early Tuesday night with more than 290 electoral votes. Christie runs as a moderate Republican and a 'uniter' in 2016."
********

See that bit about Libya? What have we been saying? It was baseless, politically counter-productive, but more than that, downright ugly, and the 60% or so bloc of centrist voters are damn sick of it, no matter from which "end" of the spectrum it comes. As a lonely and endangered long-time Republican with moderate leanings which go BOTH sides of the center depending on the specifics of EACH subject, I have long despaired that the party has lost it's way, and has become shamelessly and venally manipulated and exploited by "entertainers".

McCain was a moderate, and they beat it out of the proud but sad old war-horse. This time they pinballed from one mountebank to another, each of whom stuck it out just long enough to sell their books and line their bank accounts. They sneered at moderates Huntsman and Pawlenty, held their noses, and picked Shape-Shifter Romney. He also once was a moderate realist - they Etch-A-Sketched him to an obscure blur. Christie gives one hope, but in the current paradigm? No chance. Stay home Chris, for your own sake.

"Where have all the centrists gone?
Long time passing
Where have all the moderates gone?
Long time ago
Where has all the good-sense gone?
Covered with flowers every one
When will we ever learn?
When will we ever learn?"

Oh, yeah. I wasn't going to vote at all, simply because neither candidate had anything worthwhile to offer Any American, save the ultra-rich. But there are items on the ballot that needed addressing, about education, campaign contributions, and economic propositions that I HAD to vote on, so why not pick the shiniest liar in the race while I was there anyway?
Did anyone else see the video of the Navy Seals? They said that barry Knew about the attacks on the embassy well before hand, and could have shorn up the defense, or outright pulled everyone out of danger, but sat on the info instead. Guess he figured a few dead Soldiers wouldn't hurt his campaign.

It looks like Chris and Lyndi may have done Florida right, Mitt is ahead at this point. I think Virginia might go Romney with the help of my vote. That leaves LisW to deliver Ohio.

Anyone offering a legitimate policy gripe against Obama has been joined with my agreement.
I did not blame bush for 9-11 nor did I blame bush for being in a school reading to students when 9-11 happened. The most I did was point out that there were some things that should have clued the bush administration into something was going to happen.
Now, what makes this (Benghazi) and different save for the small scope of things? If anything this was even more difficult to defend against.

How can you blame Obama for the economy without holding the "Do-Nothing" "Make sure he is a one term President" Republican House responsible as well?
I said up front my vote for Romney was a protest against Obama, it was not because I thought Romney would do any better.
If Romney wins and the Democrats keep the Senate what makes you think the Senate will cooperate with Romney any more than the House cooperated with Obama?
You haven't answered my question.

You've been praising Obama and dissing Romney. Why then have you been saying for the last three weeks you're voting for Romney?

Until you've answered that, I have nothing further to say to you.

Kind of amazing how quick the election was called, don't you think? I mean, NJ was voting by email, and there are all those mail in votes, and a full side of the country's polls Just closed forty minutes ago.
So, What? The left coast doesn't get a vote?

Patience grasshopper....the popular vote will be in by tomorrow. But mathematically, the electoral college is Obama's.
Interestingly, women were one of the deciding factors - and there's a 19 point gender gap between women who voted for Obama, and Men who voted for Romney.
Hispanics overwhelmingly voted Obama, gee, I wonder why?
And he didn't lose the youth vote after all.

Will Romney concede? There seems to be some doubt...

I don't see it as a reflection on America, not directly at least. That's a bit of a side bar, something to speculate about on slow days. What I think is interesting is the German push to move their reserves back within country, and apparently they've been working on this for a while. Of interest, they're not the only country to be doing so of late.

It seems very interesting. Are they "coverin' their nuts" or what?

Certainly looks like it. A move you'd expect from a survivalist, not a one-world powerhouse. Do they see the fall of the Euro? Are they losing faith in the central banks, including ours and Britains, that have been propping them up for the last 5 years? Are they considering returning to the mark, and at least partially basing it on a tangible asset?
Or maybe they just like shiny stuff.
