Wouldn’t I have had egg on my face today if I had drawn today’s editorial cartoon and my prediction that President Obama would win was wrong? Well I was right. If you asked me 10 days ago, I would have gone with Romney. Interestingly none of the pundits are talking about how the poll numbers moved back into President Obama’s favor after his several visits to the East. As I allude to in the cartoon, he finally showed the leadership that has been missing in the past several months. HOWEVER, if the election were another two weeks away, it may have swung back to Romney with the issues surrounding recovery and returning to normalcy.
Hopefully the President and the Republican lead House will be able to reach across the aisle and actually start compromising on some issues and do the job we need them to do. Four more years of posturing and sticking their heads in the sand isn’t going to do a damn thing for the country.
Christina of Pop Smoothie sent me this picture of an Obama bobblehead doll she got at a Cincinnati Cyclones Hockey Game. You can see Obama wearing the Cyclones jersey! Nice.
