It is common among politicos that after an election we once again take notice of our surroundings … Like sleeping in the back of a car while someone else is driving, we wake up and before saying something idiotic, we quietly look around.  Here is what I saw.

====

Corporate profits are at record highs… Higher than in 1929… Capitalism at its best ever. More than 200,000 jobs are being added every month. Unemployment is under, under 6%.

U.S. gross national product growth is the best of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries..  The dollar’s value is at its strongest in this millennium.  Stock Market is at its all time record high.  Gasoline prices have finally fallen to where we think they should have been all along.

There is no inflation; yet interest rates are lower than they have ever been.

Dependence on imported oil is declining. Domestic oil production is climbing. the deficit is rapidly declining and the wealthy are still making considerable amounts of money.

In sharp contrast to the Bush years, America is leading the world once again and respected internationally  Obama brought soldiers home from Iraq, Afghanistan, and we killed Osama bin Laden.

This is the most successful Republican President, ever.

Yet this really did just happen.  Conservatives just voted in the party that got us into this mess and kicked out the party that dug us out….

That’s about it.

Time to crawl back into the shell of the next upcoming election….
