Thank goodness, the election's finally over! We can have our TVs back and hear something besides how swell Obama is. Well, not really over.

First, since the Democrats have recovered control of the Congress, they can once again be the party lobbyists target with their large piles of cash, leaving the poor Republicans who won't get as much money complaining and accusing the other side of corruption. In other words, things will be pretty much the same as they have been in Congress.

Second, after the inauguration, we will get a steady stream of stories telling us how swell Obama is. Bluebirds will sing, clouds will part and the US will become a paradise. Same thing happened when Clinton was elected. Then the midterm elections will come and the bloom will be off the rose and, the honeymoon will be over.

Third, since some folks still pay attention to this sort of thing, Obama, being African-American, will be under heavy press scrutiny since every thing he does will be a first. First African-American to have Hail to the Chief played for. First African-American to complain that Congress is out of touch with the people. First African-American to tell us that the sacrifices he mentioned on the campaign trail are really new taxes. And first African-American to make a token effort to fulfill the empty promises made on the campaign trail. I've seen it all before, but never coming from an African-American president.

Fourth, now that the Republicans are out of power, the MSM will turn against the Democrats and begin reporting on the corruption in that party. That's the "All-The-President's-Men Syndrome."

And Fifth, we will all learn, once again, that the President really doesn't have that much of an impact on legislation, as Congress begins shooting down Obama's reforms.

In other words, things will stay the same. Only the players have changed.

Remember: You heard it here first!
