I went to bed somewhat depressed Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. America had elected a rabid black nationalist socialist to the Presidency, and expanded the majorities in Congress of the radical liberal Democratic leadership. I'd seen that Senator Ken Cuccinelli was the speaker at the monthly "Wednesday Wake-Up Club" breakfast at the Leadership Institute a couple of weeks before, so I'd made it a point to register. Needless to say, I was NOT looking forward to getting up early after a night like that.
Then I showed up, grabbed some breakfast and sat down to hear Ken speak. He laid it out fairly clearly: What happened Tuesday was largely self-inflicted. The leftists did not win, we lost. What does it say that I was unable to support the Republican nominee for President? That's the first time that's ever happened. We need a return to the message of Robert Taft, Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan. Smaller government, lower taxes, more liberty. As Ken pointed out, it starts right here in Virginia in 2009. Other than New Jersey, we are the only state up in 2009. Let's get the turnaround started right away by making Sen. Ken Cuccinelli the next Attorney General of Virginia. It's time.
