Currency Manipulators


President Obama and Governor Romney discuss China and United States currency manipulation.

There’s not much daylight between the candidates when it comes to protectionism either. Romney complained about Chinese currency manipulation in the debate. Obama one upped him by bragging …”Now with respect to what we’ve done with China already, U.S. exports have doubled since I came into office, to China and actually currencies are at their most advantageous point for U.S. exporters since 1993″.

Here is James Grant, of Grants Interest Rate Observer, on Bloomberg last August saying the Fed needs to get out of the central planning business.

Udate: Here’s Mary Anastasia O’Grady in Mondays WSJ on Ben Bernanke: Currency Manipulator.

Governor Romney followed President Obama’s lead on foreign policy  during much of the presidential debate Monday night. The president seemed dismayed by this, especially when Mitt stepped on his toes on the issue of “daylight between the U.S. and Israel”.

I was dismayed to miss Monday Night Football and game 7 of the NLCS.

Early Voter

The repressed voters of Ohio started marking ballots the day before the first debate and will continue to do so until the last day to vote, previously known as “election day”. Being a procrastinator, I will vote on election day Nov. 6. Here’s the story from Kevin O’Brien of the Plain Dealer.
