Congratulations, President (almost) Elect Obama

You’ve run the most corrupt and dishonest campaign in my lifetime, and, with a strong assist from a US Press that abandoned all pretensions of honesty in order to drag you across the finish line, you’ve won the 2008 Presidential election, and are the first Democrat since Jimmy Carter to win more than 50% of the vote.

What you now face is a big decision: what kind of President do you want to be?

Do you want to be the person you’ve been for the last 20 years, which is to say a hard-core party-line Democrat?

Or do you want to be the person you pretended to be while campaigning to be President?  The reasonable, post-partisan person who will reach across the aisle and work with people not in your party?

And are you really going to raise taxes while the economy is going into a recession?

With all due respect, i think your lack of successful executive experience is going to make your Presidency a disaster, and 2010 a banner year for Republicans.  But I’m not looking forward to what you’re going to do to the country over the next two years, and so hope that you’re not as incompetent an executive as you appear.

Because I think fair is fair, I wish you the same “honeymoon” that your predecessor, President Bush, received in 2001.
