Congratulations, President-Elect Obama

The deed has been done.

And it was done well.

Those of us who voted for John McCain last night are certainly disappointed today.

We'll get over it.

I'll say this....Whatever has been said and done during the campaign: From all reports I've seen so far, the actual election went off with thankfully very little rancor.

And I'll say this...ACORN and others may have tried to unduly influence things.
But look at the numbers. Obama won this election with far greater numbers than they could possibly have given him.

The fact is, folks, he simply convinced more than enough of our fellow citizens that he is the one they want, to lift him to a decisive victory. That's what an election is.

And so I now say this.

Congratulations, President-Elect Obama. You earned it.

You've got four years. Use them wisely.

We will help you as best we can whenever necessary. All you have to do is ask. Seriously.

But make no mistake.

WE have given you the keys to the greatest nation on the planet....and if we think you're driving us too far the wrong way, we CAN take them back.

You've promised us quite a lot in the last couple of years. Don't think we'll forget it.

Please don't make us regret this decision.
