Our choice seemed to be between Dumb and Dumber. Dumber won.
Or maybe it was between the Grasshoppers and the Ants. The Grasshoppers won. Too bad they’ll eventually run out of ants to boss around.
The Presidential election was pretty much 50/50. I think back to this post. 50 is not ‘the will of the people’, it’s really not even the will of half of the people since many people don’t vote.
I know this isn’t original, but I do wonder if Obama will continue to blame his predecessor? I also wonder if anyone who voted for Obama will realize that is Obama?
Folks seem to treat election results like sporting events. They root for folks they don’t know much about. They should treat it more like how they select a doctor or dentist.
The morning after the election I heard a radio host reading off various demographic slices of voters. X% of Latinos voted for Obama. Y% of blacks voted for Obama. Z% of people under 30 voted for Obama. I didn’t hear what percent of “the 47%” that Romney referred to earlier this year voted for Obama. Have you?
I thought it was rather ironic, given that Obama claimed his first victory was the moment that the rise of the oceans would begin to slow, that just before this election Hurricane Sandy lifted the ocean and smashed it into the east coast.
I wonder if the folks who are pleased with the election results have yet checked their insurance rates for next year. I wonder if they looked at their 401k’s the day after the election.
