The Economist is said to represent the views of certain powerful oligarchs, such as the Rothschilds.

The Economist, on 25 August 2012, has some harsh things to say about Mitt Romney.

The presidency: So, Mitt, what do you really believe?

1. "When Mitt Romney was governor of liberal Massachusetts, he supported abortion, gun control, tackling climate change and a requirement that everyone should buy health insurance, backed up with generous subsidies for those who could not afford it.

"Now, as he prepares to fly to Tampa to accept the Republican Party’s nomination for president on August 30th, he opposes all those things."

2. "Candidate Romney... has appeared as a fawning PR man, apparently willing to do or say just about anything to get elected."

3. "In some areas, notably social policy and foreign affairs, the result is that he is now committed to needlessly extreme or dangerous courses..."

4. "His attempts to lure American Jews with near-racist talk about Arabs and belligerence against Iran could ill serve the interests of his country (and, for that matter, Israel’s)."

5. "On the spending side, Mr Romney is promising both to slim Leviathan and to boost defence spending dramatically. So what is he going to cut?"

The ECONOMY will most likely be the key issue.

According to The Economist, this week "there was more evidence of a rebound in America’s housing market.

"Home sales (excluding new homes) rose by 10.4% in July compared with the same month in 2011, and the median price of a home increased by 9.4% to $187,300 (in the western United States it surged by 25%).

"Meanwhile Toll Brothers, which builds luxury houses, reported a bumper quarter and is “enjoying the most sustained demand…in over five years”.

HOWEVER, The Economist points to one worrying sign for Obama.

"In the latest Economist/You Gov poll, only 35% of Democrats said they were very enthusiastic about voting, compared with 50% of Republicans.

"Women, young people and minorities, the bedrock of Mr Obama’s electoral coalition, are notably lukewarm.

"Last time a presidential election hinged on turnout, in 2004, it was the Republicans who managed to muster more of their troops."

Mitt Romney’s chances: The changing man

The polls (average) show Obama on 46.7% and Romney on 45.7%
