Politics, as usual.


It close to even money that we will have a new president next term. I think that the replacement would be a disaster in several ways for this country but don't want to get into that right now. I would like to discuss the partisan split.

One of the GOP talking heads the other day made the point that this is now officially Barack Obama's economy, no longer George Bush's. That may very well be. But whatever he has done, he has done by himself, facing the most intransigent House in memory. They have thwarted and obstructed him from day one. The economy is a product of both his leadership and his opponents unwillingness to compromise on any issue.

I hope that people have a long memory if the Republicans retake the White House and start talking about bipartisanship and olive branches all of a sudden. Payback is a serious bitch and you reap just what you sow. Remember. Because you gave nothing.

Interesting article on AlterNet the other day about doing away with the Electoral College. Because why should a Wyoming vote be worth six California votes? The tyranny of the minority. We are ceding our votes to a bunch of fundamentalist corn farmers, and subverting the will of urban population bases. Definitely not fair.

"He (Obama) wants to hire more government workers. He says we need more firemen, more policemen, more teachers. Did he not get the message of Wisconsin? The American people did. It’s time for us to cut back on government and help the American people."
Mitt Romney

The real American enemy, teachers, police and firemen.
