I suppose it's easy to get lost in all of the frenzied media attention given to the new President, but did the Republicans suddenly go into collective hiding? The only peeps I hear about them are that they are busy attending "bi-partisan" dinners, and muttering sweet nothings about giving Obama a chance. John McCain is Obama's new BFF, and syndicated columnists like David Brooks and Charles Krauthammer are singing his praises. I know the guy is charismatic but does one completely lose one's mind upon meeting "The One" in person? Is that it, really? Or have they just lost their cajones and are too ashamed to admit it, so they're chalking up their love-in to the post-partisan "let's all work together" mumbo jumbo the new Dear Leader professes.
Well, I've got a little news for all of you Republican legislators and columnists who want to give the Big O some breathing room. You've been had. Because while you wait breathlessly to "give him a chance", he is tirelessly working to transform this nation forever, right under your feet. He figures once he's got you sidelined, it'll be a snap to run the ball all the way up the field, barely breaking a sweat. You will all be co-conspirators because you didn't even attempt to smack him down. And when the damage is done, history will show the great American "transformation" to a socialist democracy to be a bi-partisan act, approved by all the people of this great land.
Wrong. You were elected to protect the Constitution, to protect "we the people", and to preserve the spirit of ingenuity that has made this the most innovative and productive nation on earth. I'd like to give you the benefit of the doubt, and think that you are really just biding your time for the most opportune moment to make your voices heard. But your recent past actions have not inspired even that level of confidence. So get out there and fight. For us, for our kids, and for the future of our nation. I do not want to have to tell my grandkids about the America that once was. I want them to experience it for themselves. If you don't have the guts to do it, get off the playing field and let someone else sack this quarterback.
