After eight years of the disasterous economic policies of George Bush – we have a great gift – new leadership, new ideas, and no national elections for some times.

We are facing horrible economic instability — and what does the Republican National Committee want us to focus on ?   “Questions” about ties between President-elect Obama and his advisors concerning their contact with the embattled and scandal-plagued Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich. Even John McCain has the decency to discourage this type of smear campaign.  Actually, I hope they keep at it, because it will further reinforce the fact that they have no ideas, no decent candidates, and nothing to offer but negative attacks and cynicism.  The Republicans are obviously no real threat for some time – so I’m not even going to mention them again for a long, long time.
