As a liberal Democrat, I was delighted to see President Obama win his 2nd term in 2012, but the conservatives in my red-state of South Carolina were not. I knew a guy through work who had claimed he'd lose in a landslide, and then after he was wrong he claimed that by the time 2016 came that we'd see the Great Depression Part 2. He even went far enough to claim that people would be so poor that'd they'd have to eat domesticated animals like dogs and cats to survive. Now it's 2016, and the country for the most part has gotten better since 2012, and especially since the economic crisis of 2007/2008. I guess he was just a tad wrong in his prediction eh?
