The President has the seeds for a really nice run.

Home sales robust.

Car sales very robust.

Americans being - well, American and continuing to buy buy buy all sorts of stuff.

A bit of a rate hike will make America's shadow government on Wall Street mad, and a few wannabe 401K toting investors panicked for a week or two.

And then guess what.

An extra half point doesn't mean the world stops. Not by a long shot. Most of the commerce will keep going and maaaaaaybe at a bit less breakneck speed.

Then expedite the infrastructure stuff.

It all still may work out. But they are playing with fire right now.
