I was going to vote against the incumbent either way, but if I had to boil all my problems down to a single issue, it could fairly be done on the debt. In the short term, Obama believes it’s not a problem. When David Letterman asked him back in September “is it $10 trillion?” Obama responded “I don’t remember what the number was precisely.” It’s $16 trillion. But like he went on to say, he believes “we don’t have to worry about it short term.”
This is classic can-kicking at what I believe is a critical juncture. Even if we called it a draw on everything else, Romney would get my vote based on this single, sharply contrasting issue.
