So, I guess Obama is president next year eh? Sorry about the delay, was going to write this 2 weeks ago but just haven’t had the time.

I suppose that was to be expected after in spite of other better candidates McCain managed to win the republican nomination. Of course, I still think he won primarily because he had the blessing of the media for the primary campaign. 

Congratulations Obama. I should have gotten to this sooner, but he won as fair and square as you can get in an election with the modern news media involved. I for one hope that he does manage to be a good president and exceed my expectations. Like I did with Bush, I plan to give Obama the benefit of the doubt, supporting him where he does things that are good, that promote America and its prosperity and liberty, and criticize his policies where they are wrong for America and hurt its prosperity and restrict liberty.

I would encourage all republicans and libertarians to do the same. We’re above the sort of nonsense that has been going on the last 8 years. There are those on the other side who opposed Bush just because he’s Bush, even when he was voting with 95% of the democrats and against 66% of the republicans in congress. We should be above that, and the sort of absurd name-calling as well. The Republican party should be the party of honest questioning and honest discourse and break with the partisan nonsense of the “Bush lied, people died” “Somewhere in texas, a village is missing its idiot” “Selected, not elected” “Chimpy McBushitler” bumper-sticker-name-calling “liberals”.

Now, I’d better go join the NRA while I still have a chance. :)
