It is time for all of us to grow up and face the fact that we just might be “the people we have been waiting for,” as the President has said. If we thought we were electing a superhero, we were wrong. Obama never promised that.

But whether the change Obama did promise is possible can only be learned if we decide to stay the course and refuse to give in to fatigue and paralytic cynicism. There has never been a better time to fight than now. The opposition does not expect integrity or anything more than cowardice and bitchiness.

While acknowledging the frustration of people like Hart, we must keep at it and prove those loons on the right absolutely wrong. Republicans might then have the resolve to clean their house of spiritual vermin.
