Well, we all know of the tragic results of the US presidential election. The U.S. is now a country broken in half, with a failed, lame-duck president who has no clear mandate to govern (but still will).
From a practical point of view, nothing much has changed. The House of Representatives is still controlled by Republicans, while the Senate is controlled by the Obama regime, which also occupies the White House. That means another four years of gridlock, unless there is a profound and unexpected change in Obama's ability to work well with all Americans. But that is doubtful, because Obama doesn't even pretend to represent all Americans.
But what has changed as of now, is that with such a narrow "victory," half of all Americans despise Obama and/or his policies, and deeply resent their fellow citizens who reelected him.
For all intents and purposes, America is now a broken country, weaker than ever before in history. And the pace of America's decline will accelerate as Obama drags us deeper and deeper into national debt, while alienating those who provide jobs in the private sector and pay the vast majority of the taxes.
As for America, there is a fair chance that the economy will improve despite Obama's efforts to torpedo it. I'm actually much more optimistic about the economy improving than I am about the social divide improving. After all, setting one group of Americans against the other is at the very core of Obama's policies.
As for Israel, Obama has a terrible relationship with Israel's leadership, like no other American president has ever had. He has humiliated Netanyahu, Israel, and all American Jews, for that matter. But he has always wanted to get his hands on the money of Jewish donors, so he kept his mouth shut as the elections approached. But now that Obama is a lame-duck president, he's no longer beholden to the misguided Jews who worked to reelect him. In fact, he's much more beholden to the Democrat party, which is increasingly publicly anti-Semitic, as we've seen first hand during the Democratic convention of 2012.
But enough about what I think. If you had to pull out your crystal ball and made predictions, what would they be?
