There was no Wednesday post this week. Like a lot of people, I was distressed by Tuesday's results. The last time we elected someone for president whose qualifications were suspect, we found ourselves mired in a disasterous war (the cost of which is estimated to have paid for Obamacare for the next 50 years) and our economy cratered.
And Trump makes Bush look like a genius.
What really distresses me is that exit polls revealed that a significant number of people who voted for Trump admitted that they believed Hillary was
more qualified to be president, but thought that sending a loose cannon like Trump to Washington might just shake things up, hopefully for the good.
Be careful what you wish for. All the reports out there so far are that, instead of surrounding himself with experts, Trump seems intent on surrounding himself with echo
chamber buddies like Steve Bannon, Sean Hannity, and Newt Gingrich.
Any bets as to how many wars we're going to get into this time? Sigh...
