Now The Rubber Hits The Road

Climate zones of the contiguous United StatesImage via WikipediaWell by now you know that Obama is President. It's a historic day and a historic change in America, but this is where the rubber hits the road. Obama has a mandate and now the Democrats will have to put up or shut up. There is no more finger pointing or blaming that can be done. They have to deliver. It's all on them now.
If you don't get what Obama promised, the blame lies with him and The Democrats, period. They've talked the talk. Now they have to walk the walk. My mother always said if it quacks like a duck, walks like a duck, and looks like a duck, it's a duck. Well, Obama did his quacking, walking, and appeared to be the agent of a new era in The United States, so he better get busy. He has no excuse not to do what he said. If the plane crashes now, it's the pilot that caused it.
We have no time to wait people. Things have be different on day one. They have to improve steadily. We all know what's at stake here. The future of our kids rides on it and our grand kids too.
Obama's election is not the end of something. It's the beginning of something. Let's all remember this. We've cut our politicians to much slack for too long. It's time they took responsibility and time to hold the m responsible. The country sent that message to The Republicans. Now it has to hold The Democrats to that standard. No more Lobbyists. No more pay offs. No more Washing ton old boy network. My mother always said three strikes and your out. The Democrats have one strike already from their lack of action last term. There are no do overs. They are all grown ups. They should be held accountable like you and I. If you don't work your fired. If you can't do the job you out. That's the real world. The world we live in every day. We don't have the luxury of saying present and frittering the day away. Americans work and so should our government or out they go.
Sometimes you have to try on a few pairs of shoes before you find some that fit. Americans should be prepared to do that with it's politicians too.
