And the truest test for their gov't again comes around. Will they rein in
spending during a period of relative growth??? Or will they continue to be

much less than we have. And I really doubt anybody said there would be no
recovery anywhere. Where it is lagging frankly is right here in the U.S. Obama
is the one who could likely leave office after 8 years with no recovery to show
for his policies.
