    What Will The Fall Out Be?

    What, if any fallout will come from a:

    Obama loss.

    Romney loss.

    Also if Romney were to win a Storm Sandy affected state such as New Jersey that he wouldn't normally win?

    Stoked I'm not sure what will bring our country closer together other than a world war. So maybe it is better if Romney is elected

    I disagree KK. I think most people and companies are very reactionary. Correct me if I'm wrong small business owners here on this site, but I feel like Obamacare has hurt your small businesses more than helped. I also doubt the economy will improve much over the next few years because corporations will have little faith to hire due to his re-election. I'm not saying none will. Look at GM but few and far between will. It's silly in many ways really. If they're making the money and need employees, they should hire. But I think they'll still run very guarded. On the other hand, if Mitt won, I think companies would feel a breathe of fresh air and be more likely to hire a little more.

    So this is the "fallout" if Obama wins. I also think the housing market will remain stagnant and that rates will lower even more, possibly approaching the 2's on a 30 year fixed at some point.

    Preppie Riots if Romney loses. If you don't own a Starbucks, Nieman Marcus or Apple Store, I'd board up your windows now.

    I think that lawsuits are highly likely.

    I think riots/flash mobs are likely if Romney wins.

    I think increased hording and EOW Prepping is likely if Obama wins.

    I think war with Syria and possibly Iran is likely by early February regardless who wins.

    If Romney loses it's basically the status quo so I don't know what possible fall-out that would be. Besides, other than a week in October that's always seemed like the inevitable outcome if you were paying attention to poll analysis.

    If Obama loses we're going to have to have a serious discussion about the how polls are conducted. Oh, and many liberals will be promptly made to eat their pledges to move to Canada.

    From what I am reading the polls this time around have been based on 2008 turnout and that is not acutally the case. If that is true the Obama has a very real chance of losing this.

    This morning NBC (or another talking head) was laying out scenarios where the election came down to Ohio or Florida and the margin of victory would be less than the number of outstanding ballots (absintee and provisional ballots). They suggested that at that point both parties would begin immediate legal actions to block certain ballots from being counted. And that the entire process would be a series of suits/complaints and appeals.

    They said in a doomsday scenario in Ohio it could take up to 30 days to determine a winner, most of that time would be waiting for lawsuits.

    Ugh...so we're gonna have a close election that involves lawsuits that aren't resolved up until early December, at which point Romney will win, and our worst enemies will flip their **** that a multi-wived Mormon is our next President, and WW3 or the end of the world begins a couple weeks later. Hence, 12/21/12. **** us.
