I read the post of Z and it got me thinking. We are about to inaugurate a new president and I was thinking that I hope BO does well. I have my doubts, but I hope he is successful. If he is, we are. But check out this video. This is a PRESIDENT. Reagan was what a president should be. We won't see another one like him in our lifetime. I shook his hand twice as a police officer in 1980 and 1984. I rank those two times among the greatest moments of my life. It was electric.
I am old enough to know what my parents were talking about when they talked about FDR. Those who think BO is the messiah, sorry that's spots already taken. As for great presidents, that spot's taken too. Reagan was what a president is supposed to be in a time of great peril. His actions and policies ended the Cold War. For those of us who lived under that spectre, you have no idea what the Cold War was about. To live under the spectre of total annihilation was daunting.
I remember the nuclear war drills when I was a kid. Put your head between your legs and duck under you desk was a joke. My dad always said kiss your ass good-bye while you're down there. Your desks won't make any difference.
BO, you have a lot to live up to. I hope you do, but you have a lot of things going on the the world. Good Luck. GOD BLESS AMERICA!!
