Demoralized as Hell: Skin in the game edition

One of the things that I have found so frus­trat­ing over the last year, in per­son, on the blog and on the radio show has been the pes­simism among some on the right con­cern­ing the results of the election.

I’ve pointed time and time again to the var­i­ous polit­i­cal can­di­dates with skin in the game who are clearly run­ning away from a Toxic Obama, but it hasn’t mat­tered, some dis­as­ter is going to hap­pen, some speech is going to be given, the Span­ish Vot­ing machines are going to be fixed or some bit of Repub­li­can stu­pid­ity is going to turn vic­tory in defeat.

Well if you won’t believe me based on polit­i­cal skin in the game, will you believe peo­ple with FINAN­CIAL skin in the game?

With just 100 days left until the U.S. pres­i­den­tial elec­tion, investors are begin­ning to make big­ger bets on which can­di­date will carry the day.

One analy­sis con­cludes that last week’s sharp three-​day mar­ket surge can only mean that Wall Street is bank­ing on a vic­tory from Repub­li­can Mitt Romney.

This story from that bas­tion of con­ser­v­a­tive thought CNBC has drawn a lot of reac­tions, The Lonely con­ser­v­a­tive is cau­tious, Allah­pun­dit wor­ries it will be spun against Rom­ney while Won­kette is cry­ing BS and folks on twit­ter are see­ing tweets like this:

and hav­ing reac­tions like this:

The dirty secret is this is entirely pre­dictable. The Obama Cam­paign spent mil­lions in July when nobody but pun­dits and folks like me were pay­ing atten­tion to keep donors and true believ­ers think­ing this is a tight race we can win it if only I give another $300

But with under 100 days to go the peo­ple who actu­ally have to make deci­sions based on the future can see the tea leaves and are act­ing accord­ingly. No amount of spin or out­rage will change that

“Ride right through them, they’re demor­al­ized as hell”!

When the dam breaks it will be a deluge

One of the things that I have found so frustrating over the last year, in person, on the blog and on the radio show has been the pessimism among some on the right concerning the results of the election.

I’ve pointed time and time again to the various political candidates with skin in the game who are clearly running away from a Toxic Obama, but it hasn’t mattered, some disaster is going to happen, some speech is going to be given, the Spanish Voting machines are going to be fixed or some bit of Republican stupidity is going to turn victory in defeat.

Well if you won’t believe me based on political skin in the game, will you believe people with FINANCIAL skin in the game?

With just 100 days left until the U.S. presidential election, investors are beginning to make bigger bets on which candidate will carry the day.

One analysis concludes that last week’s sharp three-day market surge can only mean that Wall Street is banking on a victory from Republican Mitt Romney.

This story from that bastion of conservative thought CNBC has drawn a lot of reactions, The Lonely conservative is cautious, Allahpundit worries it will be spun against Romney while Wonkette is crying BS and folks on twitter are seeing tweets like this:

and having reactions like this:

The dirty secret is this is entirely predictable. The Obama Campaign spent millions in July when nobody but pundits and folks like me were paying attention to keep donors and true believers thinking this is a tight race we can win it if only I give another $300

But with under 100 days to go the people who actually have to make decisions based on the future can see the tea leaves and are acting accordingly. No amount of spin or outrage will change that

“Ride right through them, they’re demoralized as hell”!

When the dam breaks it will be a deluge
