Preparing for Obama's reelection

"Preparing for Obama's reelection" Continued...

Of course, I could be all wrong about this. After all, the long-term prospects for conservatives and the Republican Party are positive: The nation as a whole is in the middle of a demographic shift, becoming older, more conservative, and more pro-life. Maybe 2012 will be the year we see that shift on the national stage.

So the possibility that I am wrong is certainly reason enough for conservatives to keep fighting. And if you are a Christian, there's this additional reason: To paraphrase T.S. Eliot, we fight not merely to win, but to keep the truth alive, in hopes of passing on that truth to others who will win when the time is right.

But my best guess is that 2012 is not that time.
