Beautifully Said

And by a woman.

Elections are usually about ideas and principles. This one may have been about the cult of personality. But one bright spot cannot be denied. We now get to see what the Left truly believes in. For the last eight years, they have had someone else to blame for everything that goes wrong in the world. Come January, there will be no one to blame but themselves. A Democratic President and a Democratic Congress with very little power in the minority. It will be their ideas that govern. They'll be responsible if they fail to protect the American people, if they cannot spark the economy, if chaos ensues in Iraq. No more "Blame Bush," folks. We are going to see the Left unfiltered with no one else to blame.

Oh sure, they'll now shift the talk to what a horrible burden they have inherited, and how no one really can save us now. But America won't fall for that. The financial crisis may not have been Bush's fault in its entirety, but he had the mantle when it came. His party took the fall for it. It will be no different now for the Democratic Party. It will also help us to define what conservatism is really about. It is terrifying in substance, but it may give us a chance to restart the battle of ideas.

Today, Will Smith informed me that Obama's election wasn't just about the first African-American president; it's an evolutionary flashpoint for all mankind. Hmmmm.

Do you still believe he wasn't elected because of his race? I'm just saying . . .

Anonymous, I wish you weren't anonymous. It's annoying. You come on here and post incendiary remarks that I can't call you out on because I don't know who the crap you are.

Girlfriday, what is meant by your comment "And by a woman"?

Anonymous, my friend, sign your name!

Most of the pundits are men. There are your Michelle Malkins and Ann Coulters, but it would be better not to talk about them. It's so nice to read an articulate, intelligent woman.

I kind of agree with anonymous. Neither candidate was a shining star in this election, but a white man with Obama's resume wouldn't have stood a chance. Maybe people didn't vote for him solely because of his race, but I think it tipped the scales. Or got people out to vote who otherwise wouldn't have. Just look at Colin Powell. There's no way he would have supported such a liberal before, no matter what he thinks about Iraq.

And I also just want to add that Obama was raised by his white mother. Like anon, I'm just saying. . .

Whatever the reasons, it's done. He's the 44th. We'll see what happens. Although I have a feeling no matter what happens he'll get a pass because of "the mess Bush left." God forbid anyone notice that Bush wasn't dealt the perfect hand either.
