A presidential speech

from an articulate man.

It was this or a sideways trip to Minas Ithil and I thought I'd spare both of my readers that trip today. The man could laugh at himself and he was not afraid of anything or anyone. He surrounded himself with bright men and women and I never had the impression that even one of the people who worked for him would pull anything like what happened with the IRS or INS or tolerate an Attorney General found in contempt of Congress.

Yeah, I miss him even if he was a fiscal bad dream.


  1. Thanks for this... which was the first time I've seen it... I dunno how I missed it when Dubya was in office. Yeah, I miss him too. EVERY day.

    1. One has to be made of stone not to see a note of grace in the man, which is not to say that that the hardcore liberals refuse to believe, to this day, that he could chew unwrapped gum and walk at the same time. The hardcore left wouldn't find Grace if she and they fell into a well.
