I used to enjoy his TV show on CNBC before it ended. But he's still around and still the optimist. Here's one of his latest missives at Washingtonexaminer.com: The optimistic GOP story everyone is missing. What they're missing is this:
The idea that nothing much will change if the GOP captures the whole Congress is just plain wrong. The politics and policies in Washington are about to change in a major way.
Obama may still be president. But he is going to be immediately confronted with a flood of new bills that will change the debate on tax reform, energy, health care, education, international trade and regulations. ...
Obama's head will spin with all the new paperwork on his desk. He may even have to cut back on his golf game.
Of course, because of his left-wing ideology, Obama may veto everything. But if he does, he's setting up a new Republican agenda for the 2016 presidential race. Either Hillary Clinton completely jumps the Obama ship, or she's pulled way left by the Democratic party's Bill de Blasio/Elizabeth Warren/Sandinista wing. Either way she's in trouble.
So is a Republican win in the Senate a done deal? We should wait til the votes are counted -- Obama's minions have a way of pulling votes out of the woodwork in close elections. But if Republicans do win then maybe, just maybe, they can slow down the momentum toward socialism and steer the country toward a smaller government with fewer regulations and an honest tax system.
Hey, I'm an optimist too! It will happen!
