When Barack Obama cannot excite even his most ardent supporters from 2008, all my reasons for not supporting him pale into insignificance. Spend a minute or two with this revealing set of interviews:
In his own words, President Obama predicted if he couldn't get the economy turned around on his watch he'd be a one-term president. Well said, Mr. President, well said.
And oh, by the way, today is Flag Day. On this day 58 years ago, President Dwight David Eisenhower, marking the insertion of the words "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance, said: “In this way we are reaffirming the transcendence of religious faith in America’s heritage and future; in this way we shall constantly
strengthen those spiritual weapons which forever will be our country’s
most powerful resource in peace and war. . . From this day forward, the millions of our school children will daily proclaim in every city and town, every village and rural school house, the dedication of our nation and our people to the Almighty. To anyone who truly loves America, nothing could be more inspiring than to contemplate this rededication of our youth, on each school morning, to our country's true meaning.”
