The world didn’t end Nov. 6

EDITOR: The reaction of some letter writers to President Obama’s reelection is nothing short of apocalyptic: It signals the death warrant of the United States — preceded by the bubonic plague, no doubt.

I dug up a few letters from 2007 and the same people writing today, supplemented by MD columnist Larry Weitzman, predicted that Sen. Obama’s election would be followed by runaway inflation, unaffordable interest rates, a collapse of the stock market and the demise of the dollar as the international safehaven currency of choice.

The naysayers and doom purveyors of the fringe right were 100 percent wrong in 2007, and they’re 100 percent wrong now. When will you guys give up and admit you don’t know up from down?
