I personally think (regardless of who the president is) that a second term president doesn't really have the incentive to make an impact during their 2nd term.
A second term president doesn't have anything to lose!
Secondly, Obama's administration attacking Romney's comment of saying 15% tax on capital gains is "a good way to encourage the economy to grow" is ridiculous.
Why doesn't the media point out the obvious that lower tax rate (15%) on capital gains DOES ENCOURAGE INVESTMENT; THUS STIMULATING THE ECONOMY?
Who the hell would want to pay 28-35% capital gains on Stocks or when selling their house??
