The further to the left or the right you move, the more your lens on life distorts.

The Democrats have clearly won a great victory. Their battle against the Bush administration was a strategic and tactical success. Aided by their allies in the MSM, they convinced the American public of the hopelessness of Iraq, and created a perception of a weak economy when unemployment is at the lowest level in years, real wages are rising slowly, and our GDP continues to grow at a healthy pace. But that’s politics.

It’s now time for the Dems to lead. And by that I mean that they must forget their war against George W. Bush and refocus.

I’d like to see the Dems, aided by their allies in the MSM, develop a strategy and tactics for dealing with our real enemies--not the imagined enemy that they defeated during the elections.

Our real enemies – Islamofascists (AQ, Hezballah, Hamas, and Iran) and North Korean – want to kill us. They threaten us regularly and will seize any opportunity to do so, if they perceive the USA to be weak-willed and isolationist. It’s now time for the Dems to clearly enunciate their policy for dealing with our real enemies and then to work with the President to implement the policy.

It was time for a change, and the Dems seized the moment. We all wish them well. But at the same time, we expect leadership – not political sniping, ridiculous and unnecessary investigations, and other beltway recriminations.

So, Dems, show us that you have a better plan for dealing with enemies that have not gone away (and may, in fact, be emboldened), regardless of the election results. Show us that you have what it takes to lead. Good luck!
