Just As I Predicted

A couple of days ago I was talking with someone here in town and they were ripping on the Republicans and blaming Bush for the state of affairs in this nation. I told him he was wrong and that you could pin point the beginning of our demise to the day the Democrats took control of both the House and the Senate. Of course, to him I was delusional. I told him I had predicted this back in November of 2006. He did not believe me. So... for him and all my other Kool Aid drinking friends... here are the facts, AND a copy of my prediction, the day after the elections in 2006.
I anxiously await your witty response.

OK America, You Asked For It

America got what it wanted yesterday as they went to the polls (or not) and voted (or not). We now have a House controlled by the Democrats and the speaker of the House is now Nancy Pelosi. Pause and let that sink in for a few minutes. I don't know about you but that just scares me. Pelosi as the Speaker? Oh man, are we in trouble. It's not the fact that she is a Democrat, it is who SHE is. I am not the type who votes down the party line. I vote for the person and what they represent. In fact, in this election I voted a split ticket. But I fear that America has just made a choice to jump the tracks and we are in for a bumpy ride. I predict that the economy will begin to sour, taxes will rise and the blame will fall at the feet of George W. Bush. Most certainly, our taxes will rise. That much we can be assured of.Hey, I hope they prove me wrong. I really do. But I doubt it.I want to see how they "fix" this whole thing in Iraq now that they have the House, and possibly the Senate as well. Wanna bet that for 2 years all we hear is that it can't be done while Bush is in the White House, setting the stage to try to put a Dem back at the helm.I really hope they are foolish enough to run Clinton, but I'm thinking Obama rises from the crop of wannabe's and gets the nod.
We shall see, but no matter what, something tells me that we'd better buckle up for a wild ride.
