As Romney extends his lead over Obama to landslide territory, one must ponder “is this a good thing for stocks?” Aside from the fact that Obama is Stalin reincarnate, sans all of the messy bloodshed, he does come with a strong financial henchman: Benjamin “The Fucking Bearded Clam” Bernanke.
We all know how Romney feels about Ben. He’s gonna fire the man on day one and implement some responsible/boring plan to right America’s financial ship. PFFFFFFFFFF, please. We all want the cocaine version of the economy, not some balanced budget shit.
Plainly, Romney is going to get rid of the Cocaine Gorillas and his running mate will implement ‘dark ages’ type of austerity. Be careful for what you ask for, good Sir, for you might receive it sooner than you thought.
Romney comes with cool shit too, such as ZERO cap gains taxes, lower taxes for the rich etc. Perhaps it all evens out in the end?
What’s Ben worth, 1,000, 2,000, 3,000 dow points?
