Why Barack Obama won, an incredibly accurate analysis. (Thanks to Treacher)
I hope to be proven wrong and Barack Obama governs per his moderate/centrist rhetoric rather than his actual record. Unfortunately, there is no reason to think such will be the case. I don’t believe the better man won, but I do hope that I’m wrong regarding Obama’s character as revealed by his consistent pattern of associations over 20 years and the manner in which he ran his campaign.
At the very least, I’ll keep in mind how ugly the Bush derangement syndrome has been over the last 8 years, only to be exceeded in two weeks by what was done to Sarah Palin. We can disagree and stand for our principles without lowering ourselves to the depths that so many on the left gleefully descended.
Now they have the responsibility to govern. For those inclined to do so, pray that they govern well for the sake of the country.
