The Beginning of the End

I really, really hate being right. Especially when I'm being a pessimist. I predicted an Obama victory, actually endorsing him as a surefire means of bringing the right wing right again. He won. Republicans are talking about things like fiscal discipline, the right to life, and are actually trying to stand in the way of liberal bills. So why am I so miserable?

Oh, wait. Maybe it's the trillion dollar spending plan he's pushing. Maybe it's the retards he's putting in high places, like Leon Panetta as CIA chief. Perhaps it's the fact that he's already equating the "president" of Hamas to the Israeli Prime Minister. Ah, yes, that's showing the terrorists! Fire missiles at Israel and you get a free chitchat with the U.S. president. Obama now declares that government is the only thing that will get us out of this recession. Didn't government get us here in the first place? Wasn't it the liberal loan policies pushed by Democrats onto the finance companies that caused them to give huge loans to people who couldn't afford them? Weren't two quasi-private corporations, formed by the government, behind the entire credit collapse? Aren't government-required fuel standards, the prohibition of drilling our own oil, and the failure to tariff our competitors the way they've been doing to us the real cause of the auto manufacturers' crisis?

Yes, President-elect Government has the solution: let the government control even more of the economy. Every dollar seized by government is one less dollar in the business cycle. I know! Let's take a trillion dollars out of the economy! That will fix everything!

Sigh... I know, I know. He hasn't even started yet, and I'm already ripping him apart. I feel like a liberal after Bush was elected. After all, it's not as if there isn't a precedent for this sort of behavior.

Maybe the only way to beat liberals is to use their tactics against them. Desperate times call for desperate measures.
