So, my forecast is realised and Americans choose Greece as their preferred economic model. What can go wrong with THAT?
Obama quoted the Stevie Wonder song “Signed Sealed and Delivered” in his victory speech and that’s what America has chosen, it’s signed up to four more years of creeping socialist servitude and sealed its fate to continued fiscal recklessness and I am sure Obama will deliver.
But what amazes me is that I heard the BBC’s US correspondent (and Billy Bunter look-a- like) Mark Mardell mention earlier this morning that in his view whilst Americans perhaps trusted Romney more on the economy, that wasn’t the main issue for them!
Hello, it’s always the economy stupid, unless the stupid want to live in Narnia. After 4 years, Obama has racked up a $16 TRILLION national debt, so those who chant four more years seem to less American and more Greek! They do not get that you cannot spend what you do not have. But Democrats know better.
We are now into the era of American un-exceptionalism with Big Government spoon feeding more and more people who gratefully lap up the socialist medicine and I am sure Obama will also spend a fair bit of the four years on part two of his world tour apologising for everything that has made America great.
The one positive result of this election is that it has given EU President Herman Von Rompuy something to cheer about at last, as America trundles down the same path as the failed bankrupt EU.
The Republicans, of course, got what they deserved. Once again they played it safe with their Presidential choice and once again they got it wrong. Instead of being bold and at least offering people a REAL choice, they chose middle of the road Romney and we all know what happens if you stand in the middle of the road.
Already, I hear siren voices saying that NEXT TIME around the GOP needs to be “more moderate”..code for more to the left.
I notice that Mahons has entitled one of his pieces “back to work”…given the millions without a job I wonder was that ironic? Obama has secured HIS job for four more years, the poor saps that have handed him this may wonder why they sacrificed theirs in the process?
