R2 = Mitt Picks the Mick

Photo: Romney and Ryan

The choice of Ryan will bring the debate over how to reduce government spending and debt to the forefront of the race for the White House. Chicago Tribune

Money marbles or chalk?

My guess it means more vigorous tossing of the many race cards/more grannies getting scalped (A DNC homage to Bessie SquaWarren in MA)/ reports on Mormon ethnic cleansing  of wives of steel workers/tearful accounts of Sandy Fluke's monthly cash outlay for Personal Products ( rubbers, diaphrams, pill compacts, STD testing & etc.)/  - stuff like that.

I tend to look to the math.  I am no math whiz, but I know that if I do not enough nickels in my checking account to cover the dimes that I spent, I will get a call from Beverly Bank's Beth, Gloria, or Donna.

It is the same with National economics.  Since 2009, more families have applied for tuition assistance at Leo High School than at any time in its history.  These are mostly African American Families who have lost work, due to lay-offs.  In 2008, we had surplus cash in the bank and since President Obama took office, we have had modest deficits.  It's math and it is historical fact.  We need to raise more money so that more kids from Chicago's inner city do not need to opt for the lousy Chicago Public Schools. Is it President Obama's fault?

Who's to say?

What could change the situation? Here's the squared correlation coefficient -R2

R2 - Ronald Reagan?         Been there done that.
     -  R Squared (economics) -R-squared values range from 0 to 100. An R-squared of 100 means that all movements of a security are completely explained by movements in the index. A high R-squared (between 85 and 100) indicates the fund's performance patterns have been in line with the index. A fund with a low R-squared (70 or less) doesn't act much like the index.

A higher R-squared value will indicate a more useful beta figure. For example, if a fund has an R-squared value of close to 100 but has a beta below 1, it is most likely offering higher risk-adjusted returns. A low R-squared means you should ignore the beta.

   - Risk/Reward ?  Plenty -change the horse because the stream is too tough for the nag

   - Romney/Ryan?  Two Republicans will face two Democrats - R2 ( a Mormon & a Mick ( Irish Catholic) versus D2 ( a Christian Non-Sectarian & A Planned Parenthood Catholic).

R2 v.D2 = Election Day November 6, 2012

The outcome is that important.  I'm cancelling R2 over another D2 vote this go-around; it will be up to another voter to determine the outcome.

Do the math.
