Today is Barack Obama’s day. I see it as a break from taking critical stock of his policies and recognizing both the peaceful transition of power that still is a tremendous blessing to our Republic and the historic nature of installing a non-white person into the nation’s highest office.
This two-fold recognition is a fulfillment of the great and remarkable promise of the Declaration of Independence that gave birth to our nation. Yet the surviving spirit of the Declaration and the importance of Liberty embodied and codified in our Constitution depends more on the character and vigilance of the American people than on the cultish popularity of its leaders.
And what of other Right-leaning Colorado bloggers? What do they say? Here’s a few:
- Michael at Best Destiny has similar sentiments to mine own about the historic nature of the day.
- Among his other astute points, Rossputin takes “a little pride in recognizing that Obama is certainly a special figure in several ways, but not nearly as special as the dominant liberal media or the Obama machine want us to believe.”
- Tyler at Constructively Reasonable worries about more radical changes an Obama administration may bring, and hearkens readers back to an ancient lesson – “Let us chant to Obama, ‘Remember, you are only a man.'”
