From the Wall Street Journal:
"Looking back on America's experience after World War II, the results
of the recent election, and the challenges faced in Washington, it is
obvious our country has become more liberal. Yes, we had Ronald Reagan,
but we also had Franklin D. Roosevelt, Lyndon B. Johnson and Jimmy
Carter. And now, we have Mr. Obama, the most liberal of them all,
elected to a second term. The truth is that the American ship is headed
across the ocean toward Europe, aiming to become more like France, Italy
"Those who worry about the Europeanization of America, and the related
economic and social decline are right to be unsettled. Republicans and
conservatives must spend some time learning lessons from the election
and then do all they can to slow the ship, stop it, and change its
course, or soon enough we will look like those countries do today."
I'm not feeling optimistic about this at the moment.
