What do we do now? Most of us were consumed by the 24-hour election news cycles. Like most who blog about politics, I devoured the stuff. Fodder. Gimme. Gimme more.
It was easy to bash George W. Bush. Easier still to take on the whack job, Sarah Palin. Although, I did have a soft spot in my heart for McCain.
And, I must admit, I liked banging on the incompetents in the GOP.
But that changed when Obama won. He’s taking the high road. Inviting former enemies to join his team. For me to continue blasting away is counter-productive. After all, we want him to unite our country. He is the best chance America has had in decades.
I’m going to try to follow my leader. I’ll try to hush.
I hope we can all stop the assaults, verbal and written. Give this nation a chance to heal.
At a family dinner last week, we were discussing this very thing when someone at the table blurted out: “I’m ready for Obama to tell me what to do. I’m ready to pitch in. I’m ready to work.” Our nation is in trouble. Shared sacrifice.
That’s the spirit.
