OK, now that the dust is settling on the election and the media is already cooling on their anointed one, I’m ready to give the President-elect a chance to prove that he won’t be a socialist lapdog for Nancy Pelosi. But other matters are more pressing than even our faltering economy.
The Russians are already posturing with new weapons.
Israel and Palestine have already abandoned the cease-fire.
Kim Jong-Il might be dying. And dying insane dictators with nuclear ambitions tend to want to go out with a bang.
All you Americans that thought the economy was going to be the biggest problem for Obama were wrong. It’s international relationships, whether the “war on terror” or the new Cold War or the perpetual unrest in the Middle East or the rapidly deteriorating situation in China and Korea.
These are life and death.
The economy is just fucking money. Comparatively, no big deal.
There are already rumors that John Kerry is politicking to become Secretary of State. Oh, good lord, don’t let it happen. I would rather see Bill Clinton get the job. Granted, he might take huge bribes, er, speaking fees for each appearance, but at least he wouldn’t be laughed at for being a complete douche. Do even Democrats consider Kerry to be a suitable representative of the country at this point?
Put Colin Powell in. Now. Gain whatever international cred we lost during the Bush years.
The economy can wait. Seriously.
