What's Wrong -- And How to Fix It
EXCERPT Afterword: The Politics of Us
Obama's victory could be a blessing in disguise for conservatives. Why? Because Obama's winning strategy was built on the back of an inherently conservative idea: that we the people, acting together outside of government, can accomplish great things. Or, in the words of the overused slogan, "Yes We Can."
The irony here is that Obama as President would act in ways that contradict the bottom-up culture that fueled his campaign. In the campaign, it was "Yes We Can." In the White House, it will be "Yes, Government Can." Obama's top-down government control of the health care and the economy will give conservatives an opening to once again recapture the mantle of distributed citizen activism.
I had trouble w. the link, so here is a small excerpt from their page. We can already see their motto for their attack mode "Yes, Government Can." On a lighter note, when I ran into Repugs and their friends over the weekend, they were noticeably quiet and reserved. :o) Claire
