After watching about 30 minutes of the US Presidential debates. It seemed to me that Romney was clearly better at arguing on that evening than Obama. Even if Romney was lying, Obama was unable to look like a winner in the debate. President Obama's body language and energy seemed flat also.
That said just because you can argue better than someone doesn't mean you should be President, and Obama theoretically represents my working class interests more than Romney although I suspect that both men being representatives of the very wealthy are all for cutting Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security to the bulk of the American people.
The whole political process is a bit of mystery to me as it seems the candidates promise everything but rarely do what they promise once in office.
On another front Gasoline has jumped to 4.75 a gallon here in Northern California and the price of my favorite pens has gone up .50 cents a piece, which is all indicative of inflation.
Regardless of the inflation thought the economy seems to be improving for the moment and that is a good thing.
