So Obama won. Kinda saw that coming. Here's the surprise: some conservatives believe that in some roundabout way, this Obama victory will be good for the country. They think that the consequences of Obama's extreme views will force Americans to take their vote seriously next time around. Bad analysis.
I agree with the notion that when life hands us lemons we should make lemonade. But let's not kid ourselves...the net impact of the Obama administration will not be favorable. Not even if a revival of common sense ultimately ensues. Think about it like this: after a hurricane or a tornado hits, there is an opportunity start fresh and rebuild. We might even learn some valuable lessons from the ordeal. But of course, we are better off when disaster never happens. Similarly, Obama's damage will be long-lasting, if not permanent. A weaker economy, a weaker military and leftist supreme court appointments: bad, bad, bad (even if we manage to make Obamanade at some point in the future).
