Today’s Wichita Eagle editorial is typical of many that wish our new president success — for the good of the nation, of course.
What, however, does success for President Obama mean? There are two (or more) ways that success might be realized.
One definition of success is that President Obama is able to lead our nation into a long period of peace and prosperity.
A second definition is that he is able to implement the items and programs on his agenda. This agenda includes things like quick implementation of an economic stimulus program, but also longer-term goals such as nationalization of health care and cap-and-trade to reduce carbon emissions. The problem is that these things, I believe, will be harmful to our country.
So how can we wish President Obama success in implementing harmful programs?
