Funny how they're not running an ad of our allies in Europe and the mid-East voicing their support of Obama. Like a month or so ago when Netanyahu voiced that Obama had been very good to work with. Nor do they run a commercial of how Romney's European tour managed to embarass and alienate our allies.

As a stray thought, looking at Romney and bailouts (such as Auto, FEMA, etc.), Romney as buying distressed companies to grind them into the ground and extract any remaining capital, and the unrest with the Euro. (And the fact that Romney wouldn't even use USA funds to help the USA). While we obviously aren't part of the Euro but we are part of G8 etc.

I wonder if those within the Euro countries are looking at Romney - wondering if Romney wouldn't try to pull a venture capital / hostile takeover. Just as bad if he wouldn't look at them and wave bye-bye without lifting a finger to launch the lifeboats. Of course, the Euro sinking would drop the world financial markets leading to poorer conditions world wide. A boon to venture capital type folks (attributed to several peoplle "the best time to make money is when the blood is running in the streets).

I'm still confused / unsure.

I can see your picture of a Gotterdamerung fueled by a vindictive spite.

But when I look at Romney, especially in the past couple of weeks, his dirty tricks seem somewhat amateurish when compared to the art form of the repubs.

I keep looking at the repub skills at swiftboating from Nixon to the present and I see a group that is extremely good at character assasination and other dirty tricks. I see a group that has learned to manipulate parlimentary proceedure to the point of a fine art. I see a group that manages to pull these dirty tricks while convincing their base that it is the dems doing it.

As an alternate, although one I'm not standing behind as I'm still confused, I almoost wonder if the Che-Castro etc. commercial isn't an attempt to lay the ground for more obstructionism for the next 4 years. All the people who are loosing it (appear to be decompensating) because Obama isn't a Christian nor a real American..... now is associated with Castro / Che / Chavez. (and I look at how far they are stretching to find something - Marx's 5th cousin's babysitters granddaughter would vote for Obama).
