|Local changes mind|
|Written by Holyoke Enterprise|
I have changed my mind entirely. Through the benefit of witnessing this past week (the continuing Benghazi circus, shenanigans at the IRS, chest-thumping over the First Amendment and the Associated Press phone record heist), I now believe that President Obama’s reelection this past November may indeed be historically pivotal and largely a good, if not absolutely grand, thing!
Now I’m reminiscing back to the malaise of the Carter administration; or, perhaps more aptly though painful for this Republican to admit, the debacle of Richard Nixon’s final term. Hope and Change?? This once gleeful proclamation of the younger Obama’s first campaign is now taking on a whole new and utterly fascinating meaning. Hope and change indeed; I am beginning to see the light.
