Take That!

So, it's been a few days now.  You're over your pity party.  You're feeling a little better about everything.  Life goes on.  Etc.

Not so fast.

Thank Mark Thiessen for dumping a very cold bucket of water on all of us.  Here's his Top Ten List for Obama's second term:
1. Obamacare will now become a permanent feature of the American political landscape. It will never be repealed. 
2. The unprecedented levels of spending in Obama’s first four years will become the new floor, as America sets new records for fiscal profligacy and debt. 
3. Job creators will face massive tax increases, and more Americans will come off the tax rolls—resulting in fewer citizens with a stake in keeping taxes low and more with a stake in protecting benefits. 
4. Government dependency, already at record levels, will continue to grow. 
5. Four lost years in dealing with the entitlement crisis will become eight—digging us into a hole from which we may not be able to emerge. 
6. Obama, unworried about the impact of gas and electricity prices on his reelection, will finally wage the regulatory war on fossil fuels the Left demands. 
7. He will unleash the Environmental Protection Agency to impose crushing new burdens on U.S. business. 
8. His administration’s assault on religious freedom will go on and expand to new areas. 
9. The Defense Department will be gutted, with cuts so deep that America will no longer be a superpower. 
10. Obama will almost certainly have the opportunity to appoint more liberal Supreme Court justices, possibly replacing conservatives on the high court — ending the Roberts court in all but name for a generation.
Have a nice day.
