To those who are conservative, and believe in the economic policies that conservatives generally do, the idea of Obama being elected sends chills down their spines. They believe that it’ll be the mistakes of the 30’s and 40’s all over again (especially those who think that FDR prolonged or worsened the Depression).
However, things are a lot different these days. There are people who actually know what happened during the Depression era. The global economy is a lot more interconnected with other countries that don’t have an Obama or a Democratic Congress. And, of course, there are plenty of experts who disagree with conservatives (or, if they ARE conservative, have a more complex position than the usual pundit).
So what do you think Obama and Congress will do? What CAN they do, given political, economic, and practical limitations?
