It is that time again to make bold predictions as  2012 is right around the corner!  So let's just get right into it!

2.  Mitt Romney will be the GOP candidate.

3.  The United States economy will see improvement each quarter in 2012 (which bodes well for the Obama prediction).

4.  The turnaround story for 2012 is Housing.

5.  Republicans will gain seats in the Senate and the House.

6.  The Stock Market (all three indexes DOW, S&P and NASDAQ) will see double digit gains.

7.  Congress will continue to look like idiots being in gridlock on every issue.

8.  Mortgage rates will remain low but will finally start to trend up the second half of the year.

9.  The Green Bay Packers lose in the Super Bowl to whoever they play in the AFC.

10.  The 76ers lose in the first round of the playoffs again.

11.  The Philadelphia Phillies win another World Series.

12.  Carl Greene ends up in jail for solicitation.

13.  The Occupy movement is quickly forgotten (no more mic-checks!)

14.  Philadelphia real estate heats up locally, especially fringe areas as the first time home-buyer drives the market.

15.  REMAX Access continues to take market share from its competitors in Philadelphia.

What are your predictions?

I sure hope you are wrong with #1. I do not think much of America could take another 4 years of Obama. The economy can not take another 4 years of Obama. Oil prices would triple, Hospitals would continue to cut care due to Obamacare, Our Military will shrink, our borders will remain unsecured, the senate and congress will remain without a leader to lead them to get things done and China would take over more of America.

Numbers 2 to 15 all sound great though

Scott - The basis of my Presidential prediction is that I think the economy will continue to improve in 2012 which bodes extremely well for Obama in November 2012.   In addition, none of the Republican candidates at this point really stands out to the be that premier leader.  If the economy languishes due to the global financial crisis in Europe or some other external factor, then I would have to revise that prediction, LOL.   I must add that the economy improving in 2012 will have nothing to do with Obama policies or fiscal policy in Washington DC, but just a resilient United States economy and the return of the consumer and an increase in consumer confidence as well as improvement in Europe. 

Secondly, I do think that if Obama is reelected in 2012, then the economy will start to slow again and I would short financials (bank stocks) and look to invest overseas.

Edward and Celia - It would be good for business and the economy if BO was not reelected.   For whatever reason, Americans seem to resonate with the President and if the economy improves in 2012, that will play right into the Adminstratition's hands.

Thank you for sharing your 2012 predictions. I give you credit, but don't agree with a number of them. I do agree that Romney with get the GOP nomination, but I do see him getting elected. I also don't see Green Bay repeating.

Number one scares me...and scares me badly. I already feel we will feel the repercussions of this term's decisions for years to come. I also fear that it doesn't matter about the  economy, experience, foreign policy, domestic policy, or any other issues that SHOULD be considered when choosing our President (as it didn't matter the first time around) Good luck with your #15.

Right Trac - That is why they call them predictions : ) .  With predictions, you are putting yourself out there, LOL

Ken - For what it is worth, it scares me as well.  On a side note, I hope I am wrong with prediction number 1.  And thank you regarding prediction number 15 as that it is a very important prediction and one that I have a bit more control over : )

Good morning Christopher and Stephanie. I don't publicly do politics but I hope many of your predictions are true although I wouldn't bet on anything anymore.
