Today’s the Day…Tomorrow’s the question

Posted by Stephen on January 20, 2009

Today America ushers in the 44th President of the United States. With that, a promise of a better America for all
Americans will be put to the test, not in the first 100 days, but in the first 100 hours.

Is that unfair? Is it unrealistic? Perhaps, but it is a test written by the President-elect himself. It seems to be the test he wants to be measured by, and America is prepared to give him what he wants. So far, Obama has done his part. He has avoided major pitfalls while assembling a very interesting cabinet.

What will tomorrow bring? This President seems to bring great energy, tremendous hope and a genuine dedication to an idealistic agenda based on expanding government power in what he hopes will be a collaborative effort with the private sector. We cross our collective fingers, ignoring precedent, and hope that he has a plan to succeed where others have failed.

Congress, on the other hand, will most likely determine the ending to this story. A power hungry Democratic Party has what it screamed for; full control. What will it do with this leadership opportunity? Speaker Pelosi is already causing discomfort over President-elect Obama’s call for certain tax cuts. Her hopes of a full Government take over of our private sector cannot be complete if things like tax cuts and our free enterprise economy continue to be part of the solution.

Will the new President be able to overcome the partisanship of his own party? We can only hope that his words during the campaign will supersede his voting record and quotes that his critics dug up from speeches delivered in the past.

One thing is certain; the nation will know exactly what the liberal agenda brings to the table and the consequences that are associated with it. Many American’s hope and pray those consequences will deliver on the lofty promises of a President whose history is already being written even before he places his hand on the Bible and swears his allegiances to God and the American people.
