Don't think so. The GOP/oil folks are trying to milk/push & count as much cash in off shore accounts as possible. They see/realize if the DEMS take over it won't be pretty for Wall Street.
Odds say, based on the past 8 years, the GOP/Oil folks know that "this dog won't hunt" anymore.
If I remember correctly, Sept/Oct '08 will be the time frame for winter "fuel oil stocks" forecasting. Bet heating oil is not going down on that. Do you use both heating oil and diesel fuel. Get your piggy bank ready.
Young working class voters will be coming out in record numbers 'cause they (1) don't "Want to get Drafted", and (2) hate the current wages. It's raw out there.
P.S. Just a footnote regarding Monaco and it's real banker.
GE to Stop Providing RV, Watercraft Loans
By BOB SECHLER
General Electric Co.'s consumer-finance unit plans to <span class="ev_code_RED">stop providing loans for the purchase of recreational vehicles </span> and most watercraft, the latest effort by the conglomerate to exit what it considers low-margin businesses.
"It's a challenging time for RV and marine financing," said Cristy Williams, a spokeswoman for GE Money. "We just didn't see the returns that we wanted to see."
GE notified manufacturers late last week it intends to stop providing new consumer loans for such purchases on Aug. 1.
Ms. Williams said GE Money will continue servicing its existing RV and marine loan portfolio, which it values at $3.6 billion. In addition, GE's commercial finance unit will continue to provide financing for dealers to stock inventory.
BB&T Capital Markets analyst John H. Diffendal noted in a report that GE Money is considered the third-largest financing source for RV purchases by consumers, with about 12% of the market.
It's raw out there.
