Finally – An Adult Speaks

From a righty blogger….excerpts here, but follow the link to the full post:

You can talk about “voter fraud” and “stealing elections” all you
want but the fact remains that if Obama is certified by the electoral
college and the House of Representatives as President of the United
States, that ends the discussion in our republic. There is no more
important aspect of democracy than the minority accepting the will of
the majority. The constitution gives the minority certain protections
against getting steamrolled by the majority. But it doesn’t give the
minority the right to torpedo the legitimacy of the winner.

This
is more than a question of “fair play” or being a “sore loser.” The
Constitution says we have only one president at a time. Given the
importance of that office, it is stark raving lunacy to seek to destroy
the man occupying it.

The fact that the Democrats and the
left have acted like 2 year olds the last 8 years doesn’t mean that if
Obama is elected we should throw the same infantile tantrums and look
for ghosts in the machine – or accuse the opposition of foul play
without a shred of physical proof, only the paranoid imaginings whipped
up by people who knew exactly what they were doing – undermining the
legitimacy of the elected leader of the United States government…

But when push comes to shove and crisis erupts somewhere in the world
involving American interests – and no president in recent memory has
escaped such a challenge – I plan on backing my president’s play. I may
give voice to skepticism about the path he chooses. This is our right
and duty….

But there was also a recognition that the will of the majority was,
in the end, respected and granted legitimacy. This included recognizing
that there was only one president and that even if we disagreed with
him, that didn’t mean he was an impostor. The fact that the 2000
election was so close (and the results confirmed by a consortium of independent media
who took the time to recount the Florida votes several different ways
proving that Bush did indeed win the state) no doubt was frustrating
for the losers. But the idea that after 8 years the left could never
get over the results and indeed, showed a derangement toward the
president even after a still close but decisive win in 2004 proves that
it is up to us on the right to bring our politics back to a rough
equilibrium so that we can work together in these perilous times.

I plan on doing just that – while still skewering my political opponents with as much zest and glee as I can muster.

Amen, brother!
