After The Dust Settles...
...will anything really be different? The Donks won a few seats as is almost always the case in year six. There are questions all over the place. Will the GOP rush any legislation through while they still have a majority? NO. They haven't been able to or wouldn't do anything for six years of Dubya, why would the last couple of months of a majority position change anything?
Will the Donks make Iraq the new Somalia and reinforce the terrorists recruiting message? That could happen. When it does, we will have lost all credibility with those in the middle east who want away from Islamic dictators. We pissed up our back after the first gulf war and tens of thousands were killed by Saddam as a result. We'll never get any help over there again if we flee Iraq before the government stabilizes.
After the dust settles, maybe people will see that the media in this country hoodwinked the general population like has never been done and may never be done again. Ol' BC is near the base where those returning from Iraq are checked in. The soldiers returning never depict the picture the media in this country paints. It seems the vast majority of Iraqis are genuinely appreciative of our efforts and make no bones about it.
Are taxes going to go up? MOST LIKELY. My guess is the Donks will just let the current cuts expire so they can run saying they didn't increase taxes. However, they may still increase them.
After the dust settles, will Bush quit trying to pacify the left and stand up for what is good for this country? NOT LIKELY. He's managed to outspend them to now. Who knows what will transpire after the dust settles from the election?
Just a thought.
