It doesn’t take a great deal to turn a fellow’s head – a blonde whispering in his ear, unexpected praise from a stranger, a new sports car. Humility’s hard to come by and harder still to hold onto which, I guess, is one reason the Good Lord made the world such a difficult place to live in.
When it comes to humility, we Republicans have had a couple of head-turning years. Obama’s been unpopular. The 2010 election was a blessing beyond our wildest dreams. We’ve had veto overrides in the state legislature. Pat McCrory’s been ahead in the Governor’s race. And Republicans draw the new legislative districts so the future looks bright.
So, maybe, it’s just waywardness to think, It looks too good to be true.
But, that said, I’m beginning to have an uneasy feeling that in subterranean caverns political tides are turning in a not good way and since our hopes this election rest on the single political fact of President Obama’s unpopularity we Republicans may be a bit too blissful.
Anyhow, there is an antidote: I’ve taken to reading about Harry Truman and the election of 1948 that Republicans were sure to win.
