Congratulations to President-elect Barack Obama

As our great country, the United States of America, has managed to do every 4 years for over two centuries, we have once again elected the next President of the United States. Even more importantly is the fact that we elected an African-American man less than 50 years after Jim Crow laws were in force. This is a very good thing. We are not a racist country, and I believe that has been true for quite awhile. This just proves it.

I hope and pray that those of us who are in the loyal opposition will not stoop to the lows of those on the Left after President Bush won his elections. I hope there will be no such thing as Obama Derangement Syndrome among the Right.

I pray that we, unlike many Democrats in the past 8 years, will pray for and support Barrack Obama's presidency. Mind you, that does not mean we should support all of his policies. But we must support his presidency. I don't ever want to hear anyone in this country comparing Obama with Hitler or wishing him anything but a long and healthy life.

The left has treated President Bush shamefully for too long. I believe that those of us on the Right can be good examples to the rest of the country on how to properly respect a President even while disagreeing with him or her.

Obama has a lot to learn about America. He is too focused on big city politics. He will have to give respect to those of us in rural areas, and he needs to do that quickly by assuring us that he will not look to remove our 2nd Amendment and 1st Amendment rights.

I have to get ready to drive to KMBZ Radio this morning to talk about the election results. You can listen on-line if you like. I'll be on from 8 am Central to 9 am Central with two other folks who are faithful listeners to the Morning Show on KMBZ.

Yep. Time for our side to suck it up and get through the next two years.

I expect a Congressional bloodbath in 2010 as the Dems are no longer able to avoid blame for things - some of which, in this case, won't be their fault for once.

But I'm going on record:
I will be up early on January 21st and if the Magic Rainbows are late delivering my gold-farting Unicorn there will be consequences.
Promises have been made.

Dr Roy needs to go back on his meds. Who says racism is dead? Thank you Dr. Roy for reminding me of the racist bigotry that still thrives in our great country.
