On Wednesday, January 21, the sun rose on a nation still licking its wounds from a beating it had taken the night before.
At 9:00pm EST on Tuesday, a pugilist stood there – the Resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue – safe behind a big, sturdy podium for protection, and socked the American people in the jaw, again and again, for as long as we were willing to sit out here in TV-land and take it.
He accused us of blindness – we haven’t noticed his wonderful accomplishments. He accused us of stubbornness – even when we do see them, we don’t admit to them. He accused us of divisiveness – when he’s the one creating wedge issues every week to drive us apart. And he accused us of being uncaring – when he’s the one impoverishing whole sectors of American society.
