Despite tremendous and unparalleled opposition the Obama Administration and economic policies are just now taking root and showing prodigious positive impact in all sectors of society. This should reflect in a calming of the waters and a steady tide that raises all boats. However, the recalcitrant Republican right wing agenda is determined to undermine these efforts and further proliferate a fear campaign that is both polarizing and out of touch with reality. The conceptual pathway being aggressively endorsed by that extremist wing would (if possible) roll back all presidential victories, including the 2008 election itself; but even more preposterous to continue this retrogressive scorched earth process all the way back to undoing the mid-20th century civil and voting rights initiatives that ushered in the era of inclusion for minorities of all persuasions (blacks, hispanics, women, gays, etc.) to some mint julep era and high cotton imagery that occupies their imagination.
