This is Newsweek’s Evan Thomas, on the show Hardball, on MSNBC…Obama is sort of God? WOW! That is really scary to know that someone can prop up another human being to that stature… I can not think of a better way to set yourself up for a really “large” dissapointment… Does everyone recall Jim Jones and Jonestown? Incidentally, and sadly, this is where the phrase, “drinking the kool-aid” is derived from. Now, onto the Ronald Reagan comment… “Reagan was all about America” OK, let’s do some very simple math… Ronald Reagan was elected the president of The United States, by The American citizens, yet he was all about America? WOW! What a terrible attribute for an “American” president to possess. I would think that is precisely what the American citizens voted him to be. In my opinion, this line of reasoning is just really bizarre… If someone wants to be some sort of world leader, then perhaps a position at The United Nations would be much more suitable. As an American citizen, I, for one, long to have a president that will put this country first again…
I am a compassionate person, and I am also proud of the humanitarian efforts that The United States has made around the world, however, from my point of view, it seems as though our presidents have not been putting enough emphasis on The United States, over the last so many years.
While we are in other countries, rebuilding their countries, The United States has been withering away, both structurally and economically; so, if there is another Ronald Reagan out there, I am begging them to please run for office in 2012, because we are sorely in need of another president like him, that “will” be all about America.
We need a leader that will accentuate the greatness, and achievements of this country, instead of going on these worldwide, Blame America First Tours. The American people are not paying the president to be a leader of the world, we are paying him to sort out our affairs, and defend our country. I am so tired of hearing about how bad America is from this administration.
We do not need worldwide approval or International consensus; in fact, just about every country in this world has committed their share of atrocities, far worse then anything The United States has ever done or would do; and we have absolutely nothing to be sorry or ashamed for. We are a great and generous country!
That being said, can we please have leaders that will start being all about America again?
