First, let me reference my last post and admit that I did have FOX’s “So You Think You Can Dance” on TV tonight. It was without a shred of doubt, the most painfully bad television program I have ever seen in my entire life. For the five minutes that Black Gold played “Shine” I must have been in the bathroom because I missed it. It was 120 minutes I will never get back. Brutal! If you still haven’t heard “Shine” you need to listen to it.
Now, onto the main topic of the post. With mid-term elections less than three months away, realistic predictions and worth while polls are starting to come in. While Republicans are a lock to cut into the the Democrats’ comfy 255-178 majority in the house and their 56-41 majority in the Senate, it is still to be seen if they’ll win a majority in either.
They are unlikely to win a majority in the Senate, but it is quite likely they’ll take back the House of Representatives. If that’s the case, I think it actually helps Obama’s chances of winning re-election in 2012. He has blamed Bush for his shortcomings in the first two years. As that is wearing out, I can already hear his new plan to avoid responsibility.
If the Republicans come into office, and the economy picks up he’ll take all the credit. If things get worse or don’t recover, he’ll say the Republicans blocked all of his brillant plans to fix things so it is their fault.
Can you hear it now?
