George W. was a "C" student in college and is great at using slogans and
nicknames instead of real ideas.† He should have been a country and
singer but I doubt he can carry a tune.† His policy is going to be a
disaster in the end and there's nothing much anybody can do about it.
trying to be another Ronny Reagan but can't hack it.† All he's got going
him so far is the momentum created for him by Osama bin Laden's raid on
WTC.† It's a blatant imitation of "the evil empire" slogan.
But the real problem is that he's using bad methods in an attempt to
what he thinks are good ends.† His father learned the hard way that
euphoria won't necessarily get him elected when the war is over.
little Americans can do about what this administration has done at this
point.† We feel like we're winning when we're losing again.† It does
good to push against a rising tide of emotions.
I agree with your assessment, but iím glad i didnít say it first. : )
I also note that there are concerns within some sections of your press with
regard to the erosion of civil liberties. The arseholes over here are just
starting to lean down on us. Unfortunately we donít have a bill of rights,
though we are getting there.
