In November I made 22 predictions about what would happen after the election. Only three of them have been "addressed" so far...
One of the main promises The Democrats made was to have more "work ethic" and to impose a five day work week. They have violated this in the first few days. They took Monday off... What a let-down...
The three predictions that have been resolved to date are:
1. I predicted John Bolton (Prediction #5) would stay at the UN. Boy was I wrong. He resigned right away and he is gone. Robert Enders, Stan, and Kevin Knuth were all wrong as well. Tim Zank and Jeff Pruitt were right.
2. I predicted the House would increase the minimum wage (Prediction #8). I was right about this. The House passed it and now it goes to the Senate. The surprise can be found in this AP story:
All Democrats voted for this, and the shocker to some of you is that 82 Republicans voted with them. Only 116 Republicans voted against this bill. The Republicans are a large government Party; believe me when I say this.
Robert Enders, Stan, Tim Zank, Kevin Knuth, and Jeff Pruitt were all right on this one.
3. I predicted the Democrats WOULD implement ALL of the recommendations of the 9/11 commission. The campaigned on this OVER and OVER. They decided to implement some of the recommendations; however, they decided not to pass the recommendations that would force Congress to change the way they did business. This is a HUGE disappointment for all Democrats. I was wrong on this prediction as were Robert Enders, Stan, Tim Zank, Kevin Knuth, and Jeff Pruitt. We all thought the Democrats would implement this right away and we were all wrong.
The Democrats are not off to a good start...
It must be very disappointing for those Democrats who read this blog.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
