What we have lacked for eight years is Presidential leadership. Obama is a leader. George Bush claimed to be a “uniter” when he was elected. He claimed to be a so-called “compassionate conservative.” His pathetic track record is one of division. Now, it’s our turn!
Like Bill Clinton, Barack Obama will use sound economic and foreign policy judgment. He won’t go it alone in the world with reckless statements like “bring ‘em on!” as did Bush.
Under Obama’s leadership there will be a seamless relationship with both the house and the Senate regarding domestic policy and the creation of legislation we need to cure the economic crisis. Obama will reform Wall Street with new regulations and shut down the free flow of money to corporate CEOs at the expense of shareholders.
On Iraq, Obama will clearly articulate the withdrawal timeline and make demands of the Iraqi government to start paying the freight for their cost of the war.
Then of course, there is the Supreme Court. John McCain won’t be moving the court further to the right. Obama will appoint judges who understand the evolutionary nature of our constitution and that it must be interpreted in light of the times.
In short, the Democrats will get more done in the first 100 days than Bush has accomplished in many years. The difference is the leadership!
