They Were Right

They told me if I voted for McCain, the nation's Hope would deteriorate,
and sure enough there has been a 20 point drop in the Consumer
Confidence Index since the election, reaching a lower point than any
time during the Bush administration.
They told me if I voted for McCain, the US would become more deeply
embroiled in the Middle East, and sure enough tens of thousands of
additional troops are scheduled to be deployed into Afghanistan.
They told me if I voted for McCain, that the economy would get worse and
sure enough unemployment is approaching 8.8% and the new stimulus
packages implemented recently have sent the stock market lower than at
any time since the 1980's.

They told me if I voted for McCain, we would see more "crooks" in high
ranking positions in Federal government and sure enough, several recent
cabinet nominees and Senate appointments revealed resumes of bribery and
tax fraud.

Well I ignored my Democrat friends in November and voted for McCain.
And they were right.... all of their predictions have come true.

Last fall McCain was saying the the economy was fundamentally sound and, of course, the Democrats took issue with that. Now Obama is running around the country saying the economy is fundamentally sound. A dropping stock market will do that for an economy I guess.

It was all doom and gloom before the stimulus passed and now less than a month later the economy is picking up, according to Obama. Miracles do happen.
