A Useful Reminder
Yes, I know the Obama phenomenon was launched by his 2004 Democratic Convention keynote declaration that there are neither Red States nor Blue States, just the United States. And, yes, I’m well aware that our president-elect’s central appeal has been his repeated promises that he will end rancorous partisanship, bring the country back together and launch a new Era of Good Feeling when finally elected. But that doesn’t mean we should entirely forget how the nation’s Neo-Conservative Republican Party actually behaved these last eight years. So, this morning, McClatchy Washington Bureau’s Joe Galloway offers a useful reminder. Anyone care to venture whether our local McClatchy fish wrap has the courage to print Joe’s commentary in this very Republican county?
