The Man In the Middle

Oh well. Here we go again.

The only thing I’ve noticed in all my reading this morning? Barack Obama is going to be very lonely man in the middle of the political spectrum. I know the rabid Republicans would have you believe he’s a socialist -- just like what they said about Clinton Klinton -- but the truth is that Obama is in the middle. Just like Clinton was. There is no other way to explain the left’s disappointment with President Obama. But unlike President Clinton, there are no moderate Republicans nor Democrats left to work with.

G.O.P. Captures House, but Not Senate

”A number of ousted incumbents were centrists, including fiscal hawks in the Blue Dog Coalition, leaving the Democratic caucuses not only diminished but more liberal.”

Let the political calculations begin. It is going to be a really interesting session for the lame duck Congress.

Oh, and speaking of ducks, congratulations all my flying friends. Say hello to Chairman Mica.

Mica rolls to easy win for Congressional seat

”His victory comes as Republicans across the country made major gains in the U.S. House of Representatives, a move that will propel Mica into the chairmanship of the House Transportation Committee, he said.”

To all my Republican-voting-controller friends...

May you live in interesting times.

May you come to the attention of powerful people.

May your wishes be granted.
