Republicans, tread lightly and be not proud, take your victories with a measure of humility. Congratulating yourselves on the running of brilliant campaigns and of having the best candidates will not endear you to the American public: the American people didn’t necessarily vote for you, they voted against the man in the Oval Office.
President Obama had a great PR outreach program; the MSM laid at his feet and became his personal propaganda bureau. The opportunities were endless, and the stunts, like women fainting on cue, were believable to many dim-witted voters, but the president lacked a key component of the successful statesman: he didn’t know how to compromise. Consequently, America has suffered through his presidency, instead of enjoying a period of prosperity.
A statesman knows how to work the system and his main tool is the ability to compromise. It was the president’s inability to compromise that condemned his presidency, but more importantly his deficit threw a wrench in to the gears of government and left the country and the economy in a quagmire.
America has had enough of the immaturity and petulance of Obama, and is watching the Republicans’ victory celebrations with a jaundiced eye. Republicans, please remember, you were the only option to the man who threatens to bring down our hallowed traditions of governance with his pen and phone. Indeed, it was President Obama who robbed the Democrats of their political power.
No longer are you required to treat this president like the Black Christ Child; he is a failed politician with serious personality flaws, who misjudged his messianic control over the dim-witted and easily manipulated among us. If he insists on playing Third World Dictator, America will expect you to kick his legs out from under him by defunding his whole existence. If he wants to be a politician and play the political game, we may assume he has acquired humility at the expense of hubris and has a chance of salvaging an otherwise hopeless legacy.
The Republicans can restore faith in the damaged American system or contribute to the destruction. Choose a direction for prosperity or expect to be decimated at the 2016 election.
America is watching.
