As Americans, we enter 2009 riding a tidal wave of crisis: a plummeting economy, multiple wars and a nation torn apart by bitter partisanship.
Yet we ride that wave on a surfboard of hope driven by a new President, a promise of change and a commitment to approach our many problems by building coalitions and crossing the angry battle lines of partisanship.
It’s no longer a question of "can we do it?" It becomes a mandate of "we must do it."
Americans cannot, and must not, rely on the bitter, partisan crutches of the past. The many challenges facing this nation cannot be overcome by Democrats or Republicans. We must face them as Americans: United in purpose, driven by faith and marching in unison.
Capitol Hill Blue enters the new year with a new look, a redesign that we hope signals more than cosmetic change. We approach the new year with a renewed commitment to honest, straightforward reporting of the news on issues that affect this nation and us — its people. We have tried to do so in the past but we have not always delivered on the promise. Our human failings have led to monumental mistakes, my vanity as the owner and publisher of this web site has led to lapses in judgment. I have been divisive when unity was needed, speculative when documented fact was necessary and opinionated when objectivity was demanded.
Hopefully, like any human with all-too-human failings, I have learned from past mistakes. Hopefully, the promises I make to our readers today will stand the test of time.
As the founder, owner, publisher and editor of this publication, I make these commitments to you, our readers:
Our goal is to serve as a positive, unifying force in a divided time.
Hopefully, we’re up to the task.
With your help and support, we will be.
