As Joe Scarborough put it it is now the liberal "Age Of Aquarius". I really don't want to put a damper on the party here, but there is a great deal going on which the new President Elect is going to have to deal with. Not only is Obama going to be quite busy the moment he steps into office, but the Republicans are going to have to get it together. The long knives are out already with everyone looking to blame someone. Now, as I am a bit under the weather today, I am going to highlight a few stories i find interesting rather then writing a full fledged column.
Back In The U.S.S.R- Well, this isn't a happy Beatles song Obama is going to have to deal with, it looks like Putin wants to crawl his way back to power. From Yahoo News:
Vladimir Putin to return to the Kremlin, Vedomosti newspaper reported on Thursday, citing an unidentified source close to the Kremlin.could resign from his post in 2009 to pave the way for
So Putin may be coming back, Medvedev wants to build more nuclear weapons systems, man I'm thrilled we have an experience foreign policy guy in the White House...oh wait, well um, inexperience is good too I guess.
Wall Street Not Feeling The Change- So the stock market has the biggest post election slump ever, but don't let that concern you, it has nothing to do with electing Obama. Listen to the media, they are always honest with you. From Bloomberg:
The stock market posted its biggest plunge following a presidential election as reports on jobs and service industries stoked concern the economy will worsen even as President-elect Barack Obama tries to stimulate growth.
It had nothing to do with him being elected and Wall Street being scared about tax heights, not a thing to do with that.
New York City, Blue State Utopia- I have been told, by a liberal reader or two, that conservatism wouldn't work in "urban areas." Well, its got to work better then what they are doing. In just the latest example of liberal failure, we have the news today that Mayor Bloomberg is going to raise taxes by 15 percent and that 400 dollar rebate New Yorkers were expecting, well not going to happen. As the cherry on top, Bloomberg is also going to have to engage in massive job cuts. Man I wish I lived in a blue state, they govern so well, I can't believe my state of Texas ends up getting so many blue state companies to move over here. I just don't get it. Here is the link to the story.
The Long Knives Are Out For Sarah Palin- Well, it looks like the McCain camp won't take responsibility for their loss, so they have decided to blame Sarah Palin. I mean of course, it's Sarah's fault, Sarah made John McCain back the bailout proposal, Sarah forced John McCain to not attack Obama on his associations, you're right anonymous sources in the McCain camp, its all the girls fault.
HotAir has the video of the Carl Cameron report.
Final Thoughts- Hopefully the hyperventilating by both sides about the election results can come to an end. We have big problems out there and now we, the American people, are going to have to deal with the results and hope Obama can handle this right. I will be back tomorrow with an original post, so until then I hope you all have a great day!
