Well, we heard nothing constructive from Obama out of the campaign. He has done nothing to create lasting jobs that we all need so bad. So what do we all look forward to?

"So what do we all look forward to? "

more daily bulletins of good news from the Ministry of Truth. (should keep the proles pacified.)
Barack Obama won a moderately close victory over Mitt Romney on Tuesday. But oddly, nothing much has changed. The country is still split nearly 50/50. There is still a Democratic president, and an almost identically Democratic Senate at war with an identically Republican House, in a Groundhog Day America.

Obama's win did not really reflect affirmation of his first term, given that the president made only halfhearted efforts to defend Obamacare, the stimulus, huge Keynesian deficits and his attempts to implement cap-and-trade. So if there is a second-term agenda, even Obama supporters don't quite know what it will be.
