Happy Holidays Bill-O
To all of my many many readers of MONEYTHOUGHTS, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah and a Happy and Healthy New Year!
It is now less than 30 days until the Obama administration takes over. The first African American President is about to run onto the field and call his first play in the huddle. The ball, our economy, is not on the one yard line, but somewhere deep in our own end zone. But, don't you worry, a black quarterback is never given the ball in good field position in our political football game. Fox News is running the instant replay cameras, and Keith Oberman is in the booth calling the play by play. Chris Mathews is cheering Obama on from the sidelines and the nation awaits his first call. I think he will call a two-hole trap run up the middle. By the time the defensive backs , spell that blitzing Republican Senators, realize what has happened, Obama will be past the secondary. How long will he run? This run will take at least four years and hopefully eight. If his own people don't get in his way, this may turn out to be the best quarterback we have had in The White House ever.
