As I look around the globe there seems to be a discontent with the present. There seems to be anger at the powers that be for the present uncertainty. This malaise has hit the far left Livingstone, Zimbabwe, Chavez and the more moderate Bush.
We yearn for a past that is gone. A HS degree means nothing and the manufacturing jobs of yesteryear are like the dodo bird. Even the brave new world of IT gives us no hope. Companies hire for a project it is done and you had best upgrade your skills for the next one.
Gas prices are rising for now, but they will go down at some point. The greens created more havoc with biofuel mandates. Now the poor have to struggle to make ends meet.
The worst part of the election is that the spirit of Reagan is not there. We need to reclaim the can do attitude of Reagan. Reagan also took the fight to the enemy. Would Iran and Syria behave if we gave them a dose of their own medicine with Contras? Contras can also be used on Chavez, especially now that his fingerprints are on FARC.
Obama said the right words even if his policies were retread. However it takes more than mere words to move a nation. Maybe the next President can move past the Clitonista self importance
and the medias all consuming Bush hatred. In fairness some of the Bush wounds are self inflicted.
He does best when he is not scripted and talks directly to the American people. Why did he sit on
the intelligence showing North Korean treachery in the Syrian nuclear plant? The greatest failure of this administration is its secrecy. Let the American people know who is arming the trouble makers in Iraq.
We need to get back to the Yes we can days.
