I’ve got a draft for this blog about positive changes I hope Obama will make due to his unique stature in American history. I’ll try to get that finished some time. But meanwhile, this anecdotal report indicates that the “conservative” response to Obama will be
- to demand he be as militaristic as possible overseas
- to laud and encourage his national service program
So I’m about to get a lot more lonely than I thought. My one hope for the Obama Administration was a more individualistic and anti-government ethos from the Republicans. If all we get is more Red State Fascism, then what have we learned from the deserved reaction against Bush?
