Looks like the Greeks are going to go back to Conservative rule.

    I'm sure the Germans are thrilled.

    Honest to god I don't think Greece knows what the hell they are doing it seems like they change leadership as often as most people change their socks.

    I suppose surviving one bout of hyperinflation per century is all the Greeks are willing to endure...

    They want the bailout money but won't agree to the terms of the agreement for getting bailed out. Maybe the new gov't will say yes, but the people in the street are saying no. If I'm Germany do I believe the new Greek gov't can keep it's word to implement austerity measures? No. The rioting in the streets of Athens tells me all I need to know: they want the money but won't make any real changes.

    No different than here...

    The Dems say "Raise taxes now, and we promise spending cuts in the future."

    So taxes go up and the spending cuts are never implemented.

    While this result is sure to Calm the Markets some, I don't expect it will have very Long Legs. It still seems Almost Inevitable that Greece will eventually Leave the EU. This at best delays the storm.
