Fundamental transformation enters Phase Two

Sorry Mitt, wrong tone in your concession. While the pundits oozed about how Romney hit the perfect pitch, I can't warm to its focus on reconciliation. Opposition to this president is more important than ever if America is going to survive. 

The GOP still has the House, but will it have the courage and vision to use appropriations powers to keep a second term Obama administration in check? So far, it hasn't. 

I haven't listened to President Obama's entire victory speech yet. Nor is it posted at (as of 8:00 am ET). But snippets I've seen don't suggest any real intent toward compromise after working so hard to divide us though Mr. Obama seems open to conservatives surrendering to his agenda. In his first term, that seemed to be the working definition of compromise.

One line from the victory address especially stood out to me:

“Tonight more than 200 years after a former colony won the right to determine its own destiny, the task of perfecting our union moves forward.”

Sounds to me like Mr. Obama's vision to fundamentally transform America is now entering Phase Two.
