The election is now over; Republicans are gloating and Democrats are licking their wounds. However, lost in the Monday-morning quarterbacking is the fact that the issues are all still with us.
The deficit problem still has no resolution in sight; we still have no credibility in the world community; we have bankruptcy rates that continue to rise; we have mortgage delinquency rates that continue to rise; we have a middle class that is continuing to get squeezed; etc., etc., etc.
Putting aside partisanship, I hope that our elected representatives have the fortitude and good sense to take on the serious issues and deal with themin a way that is beneficial to the country as a whole, and not just to a specific interest group.
Only time will tell; and we can only hope.
My days of attacking Republicans and defending Democrats is over. I will now focus on the issues.
Let the new games begin!
