What do we do now? Well, we get up, dust ourselves off, and we stand for what is right and good: we're Americans. Barack Hussein Obama is our President, like it or not. I stand by the statements I made earlier, I will never have respect for this man after the things he has said about this country, but I do respect the office of the President, and I do feel that last night perhaps John McCain was more gracious than any man I've ever seen give a concession speech. You see, this election meant more to him than just winning. Much more was at stake that we lost last night, and I am certain we will see that in the coming days. I do find it humorous that the media is back in love with John McCain. Make no mistake about it, it's because he lost.
First order of business? With all due respect to Senator McCain, and the campaign he ran, we need to take back our party. I think we lost it somewhere along the way. Compromise got us nowhere. Moving to the middle got us nowhere.
To all who left hate mail last night and today, it is you who show your true colors and I see no need to post your hate filled comments here any longer (nor have I for the past several weeks). You come here suggesting we are racist--and out of everything you say, that is the one thing bothers me. Nothing else does. I have never seen Mr. Obama as a black man. It is your party that inserted "race" into this election. I disagreed with Mr. Obama profoundly, on the issues. I wouldn't like his politics if he were white or any other color. I congratulate Mr. Obama in the sense that he has made history as the first black man to win the office of the Presidency. I know this is something that blacks have longed for, and for that reason I congratulate them and wish them well. I hope that now they will be able to move past the "race" issue within their own party...I believe we on the right moved past it long ago. As for liberal left wing politics, you have four years to prove how great socialism is-that's the beauty of America. I am excited to see how that works out for you. So, congratulations. I bid you well.
As for the Republican party and the mess it has made of itself, we have much work to do. I am as proud today as I ever was to be an American, but I am ashamed today to be a Republican. My party left me, I never left my party---that sound familiar? Those Hillary PUMA's feel the same way. I am a Reagan conservative, and there are many of us left who intend to re-take our party. That will be our focus now. I believe Sarah Palin will help lead that charge. After taking some much needed time off, we will begin to explore our core conservative values here, and perhaps we can engage in lively discussion ON THESE ISSUES. I think we all need a little reminding, a lot of re-energizing, and we will, as always, try to keep up with what's going on with our lovely Sarah! Sarah Palin is the reason the voter turnout for conservatives was as great as it was...make no mistake about that. I am angered as I see the moderate section of our party, and the media, try to fix the blame on her. I am excited to see what the future holds for Sarah, I wish her well and cannot wait to stand in support of her along the way.
As for us, it is time to be cordial. We don't want to appear as liberals have for the last eight years--bitter, angry people who were consumed with all things George Bush. President Bush brought leadership like no one else could have during some of the darkest hours in our nation's history. I will never forget that, and I will always honor his legacy as being one of the greatest Presidents this nation has ever had. I wish Mr. Obama well, and I most certainly will be praying for all of our leaders during this time in history.
