    Nothing gets done in the next two months. There's a message that Russia is sending within hours of the election.

    Is that the boondoogle missile shield that has never really worked? They planted tracking device on one of the targets to be able to hit it?

    How much have we spent on that without any payback?

    This is interesting

    Predictions:

    1. Obama's "hold out your hand to everyone" foreign policy is going to be a catastrophe. They'll love it in Europe. They're probably laughing their heads off about it in the middle east already.

    2. The US hasn't suffered a terrorist attack by al Qaeda since 9/11, but we'll get at least one during Obama's term.

    3. We're going to lose in Afghanistan.

    4. Iran will get nuclear weapons. There will be nuclear war between Iran and Israel. (This is the only irreversibly terrible thing I see upcoming, and it's very bad indeed.)

    5. There will eventually be a press backlash against Obama which will make their treatment of Bush look mild. Partly that's going to be because Obama is going to disappoint them just as much as all his other supporters. Partly it will be the MSM desperately trying to regain its own credibility, by trying to show that they're not in his tank any longer. And because of that they are eventually going to do the reporting they should have done during this campaign, about Obama's less-than-savory friends, and about voter fraud, and about illegal fund-raising, and about a lot of other things.

    6. Obama will not be re-elected in 2012. He may even end up doing an LBJ and not even running again.

    I just finished reading den Beste, great writer, though I'll never understand his fascination with anime.

    The way Biden said "He's going to be tested" really shows how much confidence he has in Obama. Let's hope Obama is really the man of his word. It's going to take a long time to do what he promised the American people. Will it take 1 or 2 or 4 years to actually accomplish his goals?
