I’m glad the election process is finally over, not because I was bored, disinterested or didn’t care, but simply because it had run its course. I mean, just how many times do we have to listen to rhetoric we know by heart, and how much more money needs to be thrown into political ads when the people who plan on voting already know who they are going to vote for.
So now it is over, and things are basically the same as they were last week. Now we will mosey on back to Capital Hill and listen to John Boehner and Harry Reid tell us why their position on the fiscal cliff is the right one. Again, Democrat or Republican, we already know how we feel and have an opinion on the whole mess, so the best thing this “Lame-Duck” session of Congress can do, as far as I’m concerned, is agree to not disagree.
Last night while listening to NBC news coverage of the election, it was mentioned that Obama would do well to set up a meeting with Romney, and the two of them share ideas on the economy, the fiscal crisis and a few other issues. This is not such a bad idea, actually. The President could certainly do worse, listening to his advisors as he has been doing. What could it hurt? Well, what do I know, anyway?
