I put this in mudpit to avoid the new trolls we have around here.
Ok. We’re almost halfway through October and no "October Surprise" yet.
I for one do not believe that anything will happen while the entire world is watching for this event. Furthermore, Al-Quaeda is on record as wanting
Bush to win because they can count on him to continue the war. So no terrorist attack.
What I'm more worried about is the "in between" time. November 2 to the inauguration in January 05.
No matter who wins the election, certain things need to come into play as soon as the elections are over.
The price of gasoline is being kept artificially low with respect to the increases in the price of oil ($53+), after all, the oil companies want their
people to stay in the White House. So gasoline prices need to go up and the "jobless recovery" (newspeak if I ever heard any!) will be up in smoke.
Next, military operations in Iraq are on "hold" until after the election. There are plans for offensives in over 30 towns to "control" them for
the January Iraqi elections (i.e. before the inauguration I believe) (Who are the candidates again?).
So if Bush wins we will have four more years of the neocon agenda.
If Kerry wins you can bet that this “lame duck” administration will let the whole mess go to hell, with Kerry unable to intervene until January.
I’m more worried about the “in between” time for things to get hairy.
How does the transfer of power work in the US?
Will Bush & Co. have free reign to go all out and leave the biggest mess they can for Kerry? Or are both parties restrained during this time with the
situation evolving out of control?
Am I making any sense?
