Would someone please instruct the English-language-challenged Mr. Lehrer that in our language "less" refers to degree or amount. To refer to numbers, the proper word is(at least until the illiterati manage to do away with it) "fewer". Thus,"fewer khakis, not "less".
(I suspect it's your lust for younger viewers that lets you put up with Mr. L's solecisms)
There is pattern evolving with Republican presidencys. Reagen stimulated the US economy with deregulation and tax cuts which after two terms left the US with a Wall Street crash followed by a sever recession. Bush 41 rode the Reagen crash down and was followed by a Democratic president, Bill Clinton with an economic recovery.
Then we had Bush 43 who also stimulated the economy with tax cuts and deregulation for eight years followed by his Wall Street crash in 2008 followed by Obama's recovery.
If Romney wins the election we can predict a deregulation fueled economy followed by his crash.
With this pattern established we can now plan our own finances accordingly.
Wish I could see your slideshow--but clicking wouldn't make it work. What I wanted to see was confirmation of my impression from watching the Ryan and Romney speaches: Shots of the audience revealed fewer than a dozen faces of color. A lily-white Republican turnout. What else is new?
