Collapse threat won't be fixed with the election

Over at, Fritz Pfister writes: If Obama wins who would prevent collapse? 

Widen your range of possibilities, Fritz.

I'm asking the same question about Romney.

It may play out a little differently, have a slightly different timetable, depending on who's in charge. But we're too close to the cliff. Too much damage has been done. Too many things that went wrong last time have been smoothed over, not fixed. And either Obama nor Romney have the will to steer a drastically different course.

The Crash of 2008 came under a Republican. And the unraveling began years before most people took notice. If the Obama administration did nothing else, intentionally or not, it's laid some economic trip-wires we'll be stumbling over for years to come. Health care's just one of 'em.

Watch your step.
