Clark BIAW official pulling for Obama

There’s no question the economic downturn has been hard on house builders. But at least one BIAW-affiliated official is optimistic. Here’s David Roewe, executive director of the Building Industry Association of Clark County, the local unit of the BIAW, in a Columbian business section article:

Roewe predicted home sales would improve after the first of the year and continue to pick up in the second quarter of 2009.

“Springtime is when you’ll see the release of money, with the new (presidential) administration in office,” he said.

See, even some BIAW folks are rooting for President-elect Barack Obama and the Democratic Congress to succeed. Now that’s refreshing.

    The difference between lefties and the Right.
    I would rather be Republican today than a democrat with no values and blinded by politics.

    What’s even funnier is the builders breathlessly awaiting their slice of the government bailouts. And they call us Marxists?

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    Meanwhile, Palin is parading her delusions of grandeur on the morning talk show circuit:

    “WASILLA, Alaska – … Sarah Palin says she wouldn’t hesitate to run for the presidency in four years if it’s God’s will …. ‘I’m like, OK, God, if there is an open door for me somewhere, this is what I always pray, I’m like, don’t let me miss the open door,’ Palin said in an interview with Fox News on Monday. ‘And … if it is something that is going to be good for my family, for my state, for my nation, an opportunity for me, then I’ll plow through that door.'”

    (quoted from AP under fair use)

    Roger Rabbit Commentary: God doesn’t want you to be vice president, honey, but you apparently didn’t get that memo. So why would God want you to be president? It takes more than a swelled head.

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    Obama has created a “fear-factor”.
    No one is investing.
    Obama must tell folks NO TAX INCREASES for anyone.
    No Capital Gains Tax increases.
    If he does, the DOW will rise 2,000 points in a month.
    Obama is part of the cause of the drop…fear of what he will actually do.

    Real American spews:

    I am beginning to see the talking point playbook Mr. Marginalized is working through.

    All economic problems during the first term of Bush were due to President Clinton, and all economic disasters during the second term of Bush are due to President-elect Obama.

    Truly complete genius idiocy!!

    And what makes it even better is that Mr. M actually thinks anyone else would believe something as completely moronic as that!

    Mr. Marginalized @ 5

    Obama has created a “fear-factor”.

    Really, Mr M.?

    Associated Press-GfK poll released Tuesday.

    In one of the economy’s darkest hours in decades, it looks as if people are taking Barack Obama up on his exhortations for hope and change. Seven in 10, or 72 percent, voice confidence the president-elect will make the changes needed to revive the stalling economy, according to an Associated Press-GfK poll released Tuesday.

    Underscoring how widely the public is counting on its new leader, 44 percent of Republicans joined nearly all Democrats and most independents in expressing that belief.

    Mr. M, the only one attempting to create a “fear-factor” is the inept and corrupt wingnut community. And it is obviously NOT going to work this time.

    Steve spews:

    @6 I’m relieved to see that America has finally had enough of the wing-nut bullshit. Hmm, given Cynical’s utter and complete irrelevance, it doesn’t even matter whether or not Cynical even realizes that he is irrelevant.

    Mike spews:

    Great to be a Republican..

    Though Republicans were more negative about the election results 2008, they were consistently more upbeat than Democrats were in 2004 when their candidate, John Kerry, failed to unseat Bush. Forty-four percent of Democrats said they were angry and half said they were depressed in a November 2004 AP-Ipsos poll, double the GOP’s rates this year.

    Real American spews:

    @9 of course. Why would any American be depressed by the end of the tenure off the Worst.President.Ever.

    It is always great to be a Republican when the Democratic candidate wins. Although it is even better to be a Democrat.
