With Gullinkambi crowing the end of time and fate for a once-proud industry, the heroes of Detroit and DC are gathering to fight the future. But one hero is turning a deaf ear to the sounding of the Gjallarhorn… at least until his fate drags him inexorably back to the fray. Bloomberg reports that today’s meeting between President-elect Barack Obama and President George W. Bush was “friendly” while they discussed “the broad health of the auto industry.” But, as the battle for a short-term federal bailout joins in Washington over coming days and weeks, Obama will be conspicuously absent. Before leaving town, The One told reporters he won’t be “spending too much time in Washington over the next several weeks.” “It’s important to bear in mind that Congress was wrestling with issues like an economic recovery program prior to the election and didn’t come to a conclusion,” said Obama. And if Congress can not come to a decision before January 20? “It will be the first priority,” Obama swears. Until then, Obama will sing praises of the Democrat’s planned short-term stimulus package, which may or may not be DOA. From a comfortable distance. In Norse mythology, the Ragnarok is merely the final fate of the Aesir, not the end of times. As a fierce battle brews in DC, Obama will wait and watch while he still can. His hour in Valhalla will come soon enough. The battle will go on.
