Kremlin Cheers Obama Election | ABC News - Yahoo! News
Americans could care less. Communism and socialism are no longer dirty words. Americans embrace them with open arms.
My guess is that Obama will seek to "reduce the debt" by attacking defense spending and reducing nukes. Then the House will protest and the House will be demonized as "obstructionists". This will be used to oust them in 2014. In the interim we will see the debt rise well over $20 trillion in 4 years.
Why are things so predictable?
We would do better under Russian control or even Chinese control than we are doing under obama. I'm not unhappy about an obama deal to turn the country over either, or both. Neither are most Americans who could care less. As you said. Communism and socialism are no longer dirty words, but both Russia and China are transitioning into more capitalistic models indicating a knowledge that although Americans might want communism and socialism, the countries that have had them, know they don't work. We'd be economically better off under the control of a country who already knows they don't work.
For Nate Silver they are predictable. For Mitt and conservatives...not so much.
Boehner really only has one chance as I see it, which is to be willing to shut down government over the debt ceiling vote that is needed by early '13.
Or some variation therein.
After that, his leverage gets whittled away just as you describe.
The capitalist gangsters of the Kremlin are happy?
Well given that Mitt insulted Russia while on his campiagn, one can hardly blame them, either.
Mke no mistake about it.
MITT blew his election more than Obama won his.
You cannot insult millions and millions of potential voters (women, unemployed, social security recipients, veterans, union members, firemen, teachers, policemen, all government workers and all minorities) and expect that such HATEFUL stupidity will not effect you on election day.
What I find more than just a little toubling is that the popilar election numbers are so close.
And the DNC ought to be terrified by that outcome, too.
So basically, we have solved nothing after four years and have elected to continue doing the same for another four years.
Debt is the great enabler of this dance.
That's not sustainable and we're about to find out in a hard way.
The Kremlin loves weak American "leaders" That's what we got.
