Gary North likes Intrade. He thinks their past record of predicting elections means that Obama is going to win the election in November.

I think he is right. I have written about the University of professors whose election model shows Romney winning. I have written about the Las Vegas odds maker extraordinaire who predicts Romney will win. But Obama’s numbers at Intrade keep going up.

Gary North thinks it’s because of the attacks on our embassies around the Mediterranean. It’s “rally ‘round the flag, boys” time for Obama.

But North also pooh-poohs the idea that this is “the election of the century.” I agree with him on that.  Intrade shows that the will remain , and a good chance that the will go too.

So that spells gridlock, at least until 2014.

What about the fiscal cliff? Expediency will rule, in my opinion.  There will be some cuts in government but the will continue.

What about Obamacare? I don’t think it will be repealed. If it is somehow, it will be replaced with something equally onerous and wasteful and disruptive. So I’m making plans to provide for my own personal by finding a physician who doesn’t take and will accept direct payments from me, either on a monthly basis, or on an as-needed basis. In the meantime I’m following the rules of Dr. Joel Furhman, author of Eat to Live. I’ve lost 25 pounds, I’m sleeping well, and able to work long hours without getting tired.

North does provide some encouragement. I’m quoting now from his members-only newsletter (available for a small monthly fee at

I do not understand how anyone in 2012 can believe that a boxed-in, lame-duck, teleprompter-dependent empty suit is a threat to them in some unique way.

It’s not over until the fat lady sings, but in a republic, the fat lady never sings. There is always another election.

I’m already looking forward to 2016.
