  •  With age you start to see that change takes time. (0+ / 0-)

    This is a cliche that annoyed the hell out of me when I was young. But it's true.

    I didn't want to vote for Obama because I was pretty sure that the First Black President was going to bend over backwards trying to prove that he wasn't Malcolm X.

    Does anyone under the age of 40 know who Malcolm X was? Or remember when racism openly marched in the streets wearing white sheets?

    Now I'm glad we elected Obama, because the secret racism that has powered conservative politics for a generation is being exposed to the light of day.

    The progressive agenda will have to take a back seat while we deal with the backlash. But we will prevail.

    Change - it happened.

    Have you noticed?
    Politicians who promise LESS government
    only deliver BAD government.
