Obama Suffers Blow

Obama Suffers BlowHeadline of the day has to be "Obama Suffers Blow". It must be a Democrat thing because I remember Bill Clinton suffered the same. Suffer seems like the wrong word (although Lewinsky did have large teeth).

Barack has done badly in the mid-terms. I know, if you're British, that sounds like some sort of school mock exam. In some ways it is, and Obama has had the test handed back with red pen all over it.

Yeah, it was only a few years ago that the world rejoiced when America voted in Barack. "No more Bush!" they chanted round the White House. Well, they chanted that when Clinton left too but that was different.

We were so happy that the new guy wouldn't be starting wars all over the globe. He wouldn't be making people want to blow things up in the West. He wouldn't be an embarrassment. Well, that was just too low profile for some right wing Americans, and they protested with their vote.

It seems a lot of Americans were upset with the universal health care Obama brought in. How dare he try and give health care... to everyone! That's just not very America. Hey, you won't enjoy that new kidney if you don't feel like you've earned it.

The Democrats lost control of the House of Representatives. But it's not all doom and gloom for the left. In a rare triumph, Democrat Jerry Brown won the California seat despite spending nothing on campaigning compared to his opponent Meg Whitman's £800million, including £100m of her own money. Former eBay boss Whitman said in defeat: "Tonight has not turned out quite as we had hoped."

Now she knows how I felt when I was outbid for those Star Trek NG egg cups. (The egg made the Picard look life-like.)
