I’ll be brief as possible:
I’m astounded at the “hope and optimism” line from the left on this. It’s as if everything was riding on it. Our whole existence depended on the ascension (and I do mean ascension) of ONE MAN. If the old white guy had gotten elected–a thousand years of darkness.
The biggest difference between the majority of people supporting McCain this election and those supporting Obama is this:
Obama wins, crying and laughing and cheering in the streets…all over the world. If McCain had won, all you would have heard was a huge sigh of relief all over America.
Don’t get me wrong, Obama won and he won big, and there are reasons for his winning big. And as Johnny pointed out, there was only reasons to vote AGAINST him fewer reasons to vote FOR the other guy. But Obama didn’t win on “the issues” and anyone who thinks so is in a dream world. The next time I hear a “Progressive” tell me that we need to stop the evil politics and focus on “the issues” might simply get a punch in the face. This is evidence, case in point, that issues do not matter anymore. Even his acceptance speech had NO policies in it. It was all about hope, change, optimism, love and happiness.
One thing is for certain. The ‘Pundit has just upgraded himself from political philosopher to political activist.
More to come on that…
