The Post-Election Blues

Watching a news show after the networks declared for Obama. Not sure of the show, the host, or the channel. Democratic talking head was an old Clinton advisor saying the best thing Obama could do was move more to the “center” and try to work with the Republicans, as if he hadn’t been trying to do so since his landslide election four years ago. The GOP commenter was a slick, whiz-kid apparatchik type. The kind who would have set off all my alarms during the decade-and-more that I worked DC. He said that such a deal was impossible, and that the battle would begin immediately. The host immediately began to beat him about the head and shoulders with the GOP record in Congress, and I left the room.

I initially abandoned the GOP after the war crimes of George Bush. This kind of thing is why I’m not going back. Probably ever.
