J. from a month ago. Sorry, friend, I don’t do this much. However, I believe between the two of us, we might articulate a relatively open, honest position.
In reference to the present White House, corporate minion/hired manager, if on a November day in 2008, you heard a gnashing of teeth, a self-flagelation and a wearing of sack cloth and ashes which was coming from upper Manhattan, that was me.
My estimation of President Obama as Senator Obama was “he’s a pledge to the big boys’ club.” Why didn’t I do anything about it? I tried. Am I the only one who believes the seldom mentioned. feisty, Representative from Ohio (with a 6’3” redhead wife that any honest man would desire and any responsible man would cheer Dennis on) would be the best possible inheritor of that other country bumpkin, Harry S (not a name, an imagined middle initial). No matter how HST screwed up, almost as much as he succeeded, able and willing to stand and say, “This is me, Harry S. Truman, who made that decision and, according to what I knew, would make the same decision today.”
Do you think that great “maverick (in his dreams)” would have the courage to stand and declare “The buck stops here!” He didn’t know what a buck was – other than 100 pennies to be traded and offered in a career he felt was easier than his father’s and grandfather’s.
Peace (or at least an attempt at),
P.S. Since I so seldom go to this site and, because I like your mind and arguments (you really make me stretch to feel superior), if you’re interested, please reply to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
