Congratulations to the 50 percent who voted to go forward with the status quo for four more years of greater dependency on bigger government with more czars, increased staggering debt, irresponsible fiscal policy, higher taxes and fees for all, more job stifiling regulations and high unemployment, greater union influence, rationed healthcare, a weaker military, diminished foreign respect, a muddled immigration policy and continued energy dependency all brought to us by an arrogant, narcissistic, unyeilding, deceitful, incompetent rock star President whose background is still a mystery.

So unless Obama changes his spots, and keeps some of his 2008 promises, many of which he repeated during his last three years of campaigning, like embracing bipartisanship, God bless us all. We will need it.

Allan C. Sorensen
