On that thought, it is analogous to the comment about US Bond ratings: Where else are they going to put their money?
While American Corporations are making foreign (capital) investments it could be said they have no faith in politicians or an acute grasp of the economy. I will assume the analysts can and have plotted the path of the trajectory.
Unless they are watching the news when they are reporting poll numbers (public opinion) savvy investors know the limits of the politicians.
There is little that Senator Bilgewater* can do to resolve our "Jobs" crisis. As it has been said, the government cannot create jobs. Only the private sector can create jobs. Senator Bilgewater is at this point in time an impediment to the creation of jobs.
Tip O'Neil once said, "All politics is local." This can also be said of the economy. Investors deal in large numbers. People want to know only one thing, "Will I have a job?"
Our country moves in spite of the politicians. In plain speak, the U.S. has had three GREAT Presidents: George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and FDR. And I am a person who believes that Ronald Reagan was a President of Mythic Proportions. After all, he single-handedly tore down the Berlin Wall liberating 1 billion people ground beneath the boot heel of communist military occupation.
But that was then, this is now.
As an aside, there is a large difference between Soviet Style Communism and Chinese Style Communism.
The Soviet Union had its going out of business sale years ago, changed its name, and reopened under new management--Russia.
China is the second fastest growing economy in the world.
See the difference?
Politicians are Window Dressing. Senator Bilgewater is a Politician. Therefore, Senator Bilgewater is Window Dressing.
Politicians? Window dressing.
I am not Paul Harvey.
However, I am open to becoming a paid commentator, columnist, or blogger.

the thank you note.
