Quote to Note: Post-Election Timebombs

“With the midterm elections looming, the White House has delayed controversial decisions and appointments...All of these matters have been high profile and potentially deeply divisive. That is why the White House is postponing any announcements. When the administration finally does speak, it will unleash a political storm, even if Democrats hold the Senate. If Republicans win, those winds will reach hurricane force, since the president will likely try to ram everything through a lame-duck Congress. If that happens, consider boarding up the windows.”
