The Pendulum of Power

When President Obama won his first Presidential election, he famously said to Republicans:

“Elections have consequences and at the end of the day, I won.”

I heard Mitch McConnell say yesterday:

“We have a temporary lease on power. We will try to use it wisely.”

I think the latter is the best way to view it.  The pendulum of power swings in this country, back and forth. There’s no reason to get cocky when it swings your way. Try to do a good job and win some folks over.

The Office of the President doesn’t exist to provide the holders of it legacy. It exists to serve the people and protect their freedom.

(I must admit, the previous paragraph was inspired by Braveheart)
