The one thing I am sure of, is there will be a feeling of hope instead of fear.
hope is a fragile thing. if you base your future on hope rather than action, you won't have much of a future. we don't really know what obama is going to do because he never really gave us concrete ideas. he was elected because he's not bush, not republican, and he made the liberal segment of the population feel good.
i suspect that the far left and even some of the moderate left will be quite disappointed in obama. they had an agenda, but he may not fall in line. they feel that he owes them, but i doubt he feels that he does.
i think he'll let the bush tax cuts expire on their own.
he'll work on jobs creation, but that is going to be very expensive. when this was done before, they didn't have OSHA, min wage laws, age restriction, training restrictions, etc. to deal with...at least not the the extent that they do now.
i hope he doesn't mess with "don't ask, don't tell". it works as it is, and it would be foolish to piss off a large portion of the military to satisfy a small number of people with an agenda.
taxes will be raised on the "rich" and because much of this will have to go through congress, some of us will find out that we are rich and didn't know it.
he will leave the current withdrawl plan in place in iraq, but increase troops to afghanistan. this is foolish both because of the nature of the conflict and the nature of NATO. we will be there forever and many live will be wasted along with many dollars. unlike iraq, there is no strategic advantage to staying in afghanistan and it will continue to drain our military.
if he can not control nancy and harry, and i don't think he can, he will end up with programs bigger and more expensive than even he foresaw.
enjoy that hope. it's going to be a rocky and expensive ride!
