I have been watching with great interest the ongoing democratic civil war the last few weeks but have refrained from commenting here over the water, as the daily round of recriminations changed so fast it was hard to say something that did not rapidly become outdated. McCain at the moment doesn't seem to have to do much more than shore up his Republican base and seem presidential...in contrast to the Barry O versus Hillary dogfight. I have been reading this book lately and have been struck by the vast difference between a truly presidential figure and the pygmies squabbling over the post now. I grew up in a country that hated Reagan and its only recently with the unmasking of the inherently evil liberal bias in the media that I have realised how truly maligned President Reagan was.On a simple almost joke level it seems every Republican president is an idiot whilst every democratic president is reported in hushed adulatory tones...strange that hey? I wish I could have the chance one day perhaps to live in a country with a leader with his commitment to freedom....somehow with gordo and nulabour I think I,ll be waiting rather awhile yet as the E.U. is not going to release its increasingly totalitarian grip from England any time soon.
