It will be really interesting to watch the results of the recall elections in Wisconsin to see if the Tea Party philosophy is as well received as Rush Limbaugh seems to believe. My guess is that some of the 6 senators who supported Walker will be recalled but even if that happens he will not be devastatingly crippled unless a recall election of his position gains steam. In the meantime, keep as much investing powder dry as you can and carefully pick long term opportunities when you see fit to do so. But we are a few years away from coming out of this mess and obstructionism from both the left and right will be of no help. SOQ, at these prices, seems like the right time for me.
