Home > Economy > The Hawk Is Back!

First, I must apologize for my long absence. I have been campaigning very hard for some local Republican candidates for congress and state legislature. We were wildly successful.

I took about a half dozen calls this morning, from people asking how I was doing. Checking up on me after a bad night for Republicans. While I appreciate that, I NEVER EVER allow any election to determine my happiness and neither should anyone else.

THE PITFALLS
Yes, Obama will probably have three appointments to the Supreme Court, but the three he will be replacing are either liberal or left wing extremists so it will pretty much be a wash. And yes, the election results do mean America’s surrender in Iraq and our first military loss since Viet Nam. And yes, after we are attacked again (as stated by Joe Biden) the U.S. response will probably be to get down on our hands and knees, apologize to the terrorists for doing whatever it was we did to make them mad and then begging them not to do it again.

DOWN THE ROAD
So far, the Republicans still hold enough seats to filibuster and stop many of the left wing radical extremist ideas of Barack Obama.  Looking even further past that… 2010 will be the new 1994.

We may not be able to take over the House or the Senate in 2010 but we will pick off about 15 to 20 seats in the House and 2 or 3 in the Senate, unless there are retirements on the left side of the aisle. In that case, we may pick off more. But in 2012, we will have an excellent shot at picking off 8 to 10 more Senate democrats.

Of course, this is all contingent upon the Republican Party getting their heads out of their collective ass and finally acting like Ronald Reagan Republicans.

FACTORS
The factors that went into this miserable election year were these. First, ACORN registered over 1 million voters (a great deal of which were phony/fraudulent) thus allowing the theft of states like Indiana, Virginia, Florida and North Carolina.

Second, there were a great deal of new “young” voters under the age of 25 flocking to the polls to vote for Obama. These young voters voted with one thing in mind. Someone else should be responsibe for paying for their education, health care and ensuring them a job.

Third, Senior Citizens were once again duped with the phony claims that Republicans and John McCain will take away their Social Security and Medicare. This is a perennial favorite of the Democrats because it works every time, even though neither of the programs have ever been cut under Republican rule.

Fourth, the drop in the stock market and the mortgage industry crisis. This had an effect mainly because we, as Americans (since the first Bush Administration) have stopped examining ourselves and have this insatiable need to blame someone else for our own failings.

All these things combined and created the perfect storm, but what we did on November 4th is going to crush the life out of us and possibly take an entire generation to fix. If you thought these last few years were bad, YOU AINT SEEN NOTHING YET!!!

    Americans have no idea what they’ve voted for. Listen to the rhetoric: Obama/Biden have predicted that there would be another terrorist attack, Biden has said that Obama would be make decisions that would be very unpopular, Obama is talking about the greatest use of Executive Powers ever… This may have been the last election of an American President as we know it. Obama ain’t leaving the White House until he’s old, gray, and carried out on a stretcher.
