Commentary of the Day

Ron M, on Peter Wehner:

Although I do not consider myself a conservative, I voted for Obama because I felt that he valued competence over all else and that he would not cater to any political faction as his method of governing. I made the assessment that his integrity would be my safety net. So far I am very pleased. Hopefully he will give us a period where no ideology will dominate. I have this belief that Obama is aware that he will need conservative support to get his program passed. I think that he will attempt to maximize support on everything that he does that is for the long term. It is only on measures that only have short term significance that he will be particular about the form that it takes.

Although I spent hours working on the Obama campaign, I too was not completely sure that he was who he said he was. But if you listen to him carefully and accept him at his word, he does seem to do most things just the way he says he will.
