Was I Right Or Was I Right?

Me on Glenzilla's blog a couple of days ago:
Forget The Election

Obama just won.

Wall Street tomorrow is going to confirm everything that all the critics ever said was wrong with the Reagan/Bush "trickle-down" economic lies.

Depending on your personal situation, it's time for either panic or popcorn.
Of course the main thing is not the financial well-being of the planet, or the future of our children, but whether or not I personally was right.

Ego uber alles. Vorsicht wenn du runterkommst!

UPDATE: Here's Obama today on the economic crisis:
Obama said the role of ratings services must be examined as part of any revamping of the way markets are monitored and regulated, and he suggested that he doesn't favor having the government stepping in to rescue failing firms.

``The idea that taxpayers can continue to be on the hook for failures at firm after firm after firm I think is a real problem,'' Obama said in an interview tonight with Bloomberg Television.
Meanwhile, here's a former McCain shrill seeing the light:
Now he has broken that promise so completely that the John McCain of old is unrecognizable. He has become the sort of politician he once despised...

I am one of the journalists accused over the years of being in the tank for McCain. Guilty...

Karl Marx got one thing right -- what he said about history repeating itself. Once is tragedy, a second time is farce. John McCain is both.
Potentially, the world is about to take a turn for the better. But just winning the election will be only the start for Obama.
