Fearless Llama 2012 Prediction

For those of you asking, "Tom, what do you think is going to happen next year?" here is my guess based on the present state of play:

BHO wins a close reelection more or less by default, the senate flips and we have four years of stalemate.

Want another prediction? This leaves the way wide open for a GOP rock star in 2016.

There you have it.

Paul Ryan is thinking about running for the Senate seat left open by Kohl's retirement; Feingold will probably run as well.

As much as I like Ryan where he is - deeply involved in the budget - a senate term will set him up nicely for 2016. He IS the rock star, and one who has his priorities in order (won't run for Pres in 2012 as his kids are still pretty young).

Completely agree, Robbo.

Yeah, and then we're stuck with the second term we never gave Carter. That won't be pleasant.

Problem being that the fascist (and sorry, but that's what Dear Liar is. He's certainly not a free market capitalist & I wont go so far as to call him a socialist. Fascism is the third way. Look it up.) will still be in control of the executive branch and can still do lots of damage. Unless the US gives him exactly $0.00 dollars for the next four years.
