On a different note, I hope the Tea Party people and those who voted for their more personally extreme candidates have learned a lesson. Look at the whole person, not just what comes out of their mouth. Rand Paul probably would not have won had his father not been Ron. O'Donnell ~ what can I say. A winnable seat lost because the establishment candidate was a moderate. Probably the worst reason to not vote for someone. Sharon Angle? More of the same. It's time to realize the the reigning princess of the air waves, Sarah Palin, shoots from the lip with her endorsements. Be more careful next time around! If Murkowski pulls out Alaska it's not bad. She's a moderate. Forget about the Palin vendetta!
As to where I'm wary. I listened to both Boehner and Obama this morning. They both have "My Way" as their theme song. Obama seems to think our frustration is all about the economy. He's wrong. It's about his entire agenda. I expect no non-partisanship from him. Nor from the Republicans. Hopefully, however, they're at least wise enough not to follow the pundits advice to give no quarter. They, the pundits, definitely haven't learned.
I fear we'll see too many extremists on both sides of the aisle and a lot of deadlocks. That may be good if it means no more forcing legislation down our throats. It's bad if it means nothing gets done. Then we'll suffer through the blame game again.
The next few days will be interesting. Obama is off to the G-8/20 summit in Seoul by way of India and Indonesia. He has no business to attend to in India nor Indonesia, just Seoul. If the rumors are true about his booking 500 hotel rooms and having an entourage of 3000 you hope the numbers are an exaggeration by some malcontents. If it's true, be sure he didn't hear the message from the voters. Perhaps he needs a hearing aide! Or czar.
It's not just the economy.
