Romney Win Likely Based on Latest Polls I don't think Romney win is possible given the electoral math. Looks like Obama has Nevada, Ohio, Iowa and Wisconcin. He may end up winning in NH but it doesn't matter.In any case, I am not expecting a thing to change under Romney. To begin with, if he wins, we don't know really how he is going to govern because on every subject, I have seen his statements are completely contradictory. More importantly, it is one thingto go in front of national TV and say I agree with Obama on foreign policies but will be completely impossible to govern with that policy.For ex: McCain and his buddies will force Romney to start a war with Syria and there is an outside chance with Iran too. Obama resisted the pressure to get involved in Syria. From his Libyan intervention, clearly if at all he decides to intervene it will be a minor engagement, not another Iraq. Afghan withdrawl mostly likely will not happen. On the taxes: DeMint and his buddies will not let Romney to cut any deal with Democrates for some tax hikes for spending cuts.If he repeals Obamacare, then he can forget getting any cooperation from democrates on any social issues.We will not be balancing the budgets and deficits will continue and go up to fund the military expansion, tax cuts and new wars.One of the key assumption on balancing the budgets is, winding down the 2 wars which are roughly costing over $850 Billion a year. As much as you want to believe Romney has some magic wand and will solve economic problems, I don't see them happening.I think the problem for this countr is not who is going to be the presidents but the congress. The congress was willing to let the investment grade go on useless debt ceiling issue. There is no telling that same congress will somehow suddenly behave and play nice if Romney is the president.
