This is it
November 1, 2012
This is the last Wednesday Update before we learn how many Americans still care about the ideas that built this country.
Tuesday is the day many have waited for since that moment in 2008 when it became painfully clear what we were in for.
We were not looking for someone to transform the nation; the nation will be just fine, once it’s rid of The Transformer.
We were not looking for a narcissist expecting to be taken seriously as he indulged the fantasy that he would lead a government that commands the temperatures and sea levels.
We were not looking for someone presuming he was fit to decide how to “spread the wealth around.” We neither need nor want anyone making those choices for us.
We were especially not looking for a habitual liar willing to say anything to redirect blame and evade responsibility for his own destructive actions. But that is what’s been continuously on display for four years concerning the economy and for the past 50 days concerning the terrorist murders of four Americans in Libya.
Four years ago America mistakenly embraced what turned out to be a national embarrassment for which generations will still be paying decades from now. On Tuesday, we have a chance to correct that mistake.
