2011 - The Year We Take Back Congress and Make Obama's Life Hell!

Lead? Or Be Led?

A strong case made by possibly the last Conservative left standing in Pennsylvania:

In his 2006 book, The Audacity of Hope, Barack Obama wrote: "I am new enough on the national political scene that I serve as a blank screen on which people of vastly different political stripes project their own views."

On Tuesday, that proved to be a prophecy. But now his actions and deeds - his inevitable choices - will fill the screen.

Will he govern as a screen on which Congress' liberal Democratic majority will project its views, like President Bill Clinton in 1993 and 1994? Or will the views of center-left America fill the screen, as happened with Clinton from 1995 to 2000?

In other words, will Obama be led to the left by Congress, or will he lead in a more moderate direction?

If he is led, our economy will struggle under greater taxes on investors and higher-income workers. Government would take ownership of automakers. Federal domestic spending would explode. Employees of small businesses would get Medicaid-like government health insurance, paid for by taxing their employers.
