Interesting stuff here: A Troika report into whether Greece's debt is manageable (no), will apparently be delayed until after the U.S. presidential election, reports Reuters. "The Obama administration doesn't want anything on a macroeconomic scale that is going to rock the global economy before Nov. 6," says an EU official.

    No surprise - Obama's sole competency is campaigning and pandering to fools and socialists.

     

    He lacks the ability to deal with the truth or reality.

    Messrs Market-somewhere and Tricky,

     

    The copywriter is on the ball and is in on the joke. That means something, doesn't it?

    one day ill be able to tell my children and grandchildren about this great place i grew up in, and how i watched my parents destroy it. sorry to be possibly over-dramatic, but this is a very dark period in our nation's history.

    What did he promise to get the Troika to delay the report?

    For those actually interested in what's going on in Greece and not just in making a opinion statement, there's an interesting interview here on Bloomberg with former Greek finance minister:

    This is actually a pointless delay. If the news were good, the Obama administration would be glad to see them announce it so they might see markets rise. So by not releasing the report until November, after the elections, they have not delayed the impact it will have on financial markets. In any case, if anyone is actually fooled into believing this is going to end well for Europe, I'd recommend you seek immediate help.

    So much irony here.

     

    What happens when corporations report 0% earnings growth in October?
