I’m not interested in the Republican primaries. Whatever happens happens. I suspect Romney will be the eventual nominee but a lot depends on how unhinged the Republican base is.
It looks very much as though the whole world is going into recession. Europe and Australia very clearly are. China is equally clearly slowing down and may actually go into recession. I seriously doubt that, if the rest of the world goes into recession, that we can escape it here.
I think that war with Iran is becoming increasingly likely. Iran’s recent overtures for more talks are unlikely to do much; they’ve already poisoned the well. Both the Israelis and the French are pouring cold water on the idea. I honestly don’t know what the Iranians could do at this point to prevent either Israel, the U. S., or both from attacking them.
Unless something more interesting happens today, I think I’ll post about television.
