So an African-American is now President-elect. He did it. The symbolism of that for America is huge. Yea for us. Let's hope that heals some wounds and closes the door a bit more on America's "original sin."
I pray that symbolism is mostly satisfied now and I rejoice with those who have felt that hurt and lived with it the sense of disenfranchisement. For that much I am grateful.
NOW moving from symbolism to substance:
What now for conservatives?
Can we finally have a national debate about ideas and what "The One" really wants to change and what his associations say about the security risk he poses to the US? The man's positions are amazingly far to the left.
Will the fair media scrutiny "The One" was spared during the election years finally begin? The man's associations would not have allowed him to get the basic security clearance I needed in the Navy to do my electronics job.
Michele Malkin gets it right...
We gird our loins, to borrow a phrase from our Vice President-elect.Game on!
We lock and load our ideological ammunition.
First assignment for fiscal conservatives in Washington:
1) Oppose the Democrats’ next stimulus boondoggle.
2) Oppose Obama’s windfall profits tax proposal.
3) Oppose new bailouts for states deep in debt.
4) Oppose new foreclosure prevention measures that will simply provide perverse incentives for borrowers to walk away and delay a needed market correction.
5) No more federal loan guarantees for corporations given that Washington has no idea whether the AIG bailout is “working.”
