...since I've posted here. I have to apologize for that. I've been quite busy with project work and projects around the house. Also, I admit that I suffered from lack of enthusiasm to post much once the financial market meltdown occurred and it became obvious that no Republican could win in 2008.
However, I'm ready to get started on 2009, and I'll make a few statements on how this blog is going to function over the next few years.
First, I hope that President Barack Obama (D-USA) is an incredibly successful President. In fact, I hope he’s the most successful President ever. Unlike some of my more liberal counterparts over the last 8 years, I’m not going to wish him or the country ill just to satisfy my own desires for vengeance or conservative revivals.
Second, I’m not going to resort to ridiculous name-calling as we’ve seen elsewhere “Smirking Chimp”, “Bushitler”, etc. (Although I may occasionally call our VP “Clueless Joe”, just because that one is too easy and too good to resist—and I’m a “Shoeless Joe Jackson” fan.)
Third, I will point out when the new administration does things I agree with and when I disagree. I expect there to be far more of the latter than the former, but perhaps I’ll be pleasantly surprised.
Fourth, I will continue to push for GOP 2.0, and a new Republican Revolution (with Republicans who remember what it means to be conservative).
Fifth, I’m going to try to avoid swinging at pitches in the dirt. If I go after Mr. Obama on something, I want it to have substance. Hopefully this blog won’t get mired in pointless non-controversies like the Valerie Plame affair (I expect to have very little to say about Blagojevich).
On a final note, I just want to say Merry Christmas to all, and I hope the holiday season finds you well and that the new year brings good tidings to you and yours.
