The defeat of John McCain heralds the beginning of an American tragedy. The goal of all Americans,whether conservative Republicans or Clinton Democrats,must be to make certain that Barack Obama will be a one term President.
In all my years of observing politics I have never heard a candidate talk about his second term in office before he was even elected for his first term. Obama did that several times during this campaign. It takes a special kind of arrogance to do that. It’s also a convenient way to tell his supporters that he intends to break his promises to them. The gullible are about to learn just how duplicitous The One is.
I doubt that the press will cease their fawning toward Obama. We can’t expect that things will change now that Obama has been elected. They will never treat him with the disdain they normally exhibit toward Presidents,regardless of party. Moderate bloggers and sympathetic journalists on the right must unite for a common cause. Even if there are new revelations,we must forget about Bill Ayers and Jeremiah Wright and Tony Rezko. People have tuned us out on them. We must focus our attacks on Obama’s policies. He will have no excuses since he has vast majorities in the Senate and the House.
Our attacks must be blistering,ruthless,unrelenting and acerbic. The goal must be to eventually make Obama an object of ridicule. This won’t be easy. It won’t be accomplished in a few months or even one year,but by the end of his third year in office the public must begin to see him as another Jimmy Carter. Only when he is seen as another Carter,only when he is being mocked by comedians,will he be defeated. Whether it is Iraq or Afghanistan or his appeasement of Middle East leaders we must attack with a savagery not seen in American politics before. We must launch an insurgency. Not with bullets. With words. In blogs,the Internet,and on TV. Like a playwright once wrote, “The pen is mightier than the sword”.
