This has been a very hard fought election. A lot of harsh words have been said on both sides of the aisle. The temptation of many people to gloat and brag may be very strong. But that doesn’t get us anywhere.
Barack Obama is our President. He will be our President for the next four years. We will have a GOP House of Representatives and a Democratic Senate. The time for bickering is over. The time for creating a climate where jobs will be created needs to start. This requires people of all political persuasions to drop their differences and to focus on those things that we as Americans need to have done.
People are not always going to get exactly what they want in such an atmosphere. When people work together and don’t get everything they wanted but meet a common goal that benefits most of us, that is called compromise. It is what our nation was built on. It is how our government is supposed to work.
So let’s get to work.
