Just Sayin'.....a lovely quote from a lovely person...

1. We have a president who not only did well in college, but taught it as well.
2. He reads a lot. (300 pages per day on vacation, not to mention the works he reads when he is not on vacation.)
3. Do you really think he doesn’t read anything else? Or, that he hasn’t read a huge selection of work from all genres and ages?
Why don’t we compare that to the last president, whom most of our current president’s critics supported. Gosh, I don’t think there is anything I can say but that it is a sadly laughable matter to think of Pres. G. W. B. ever in his life reading even half as much in a day. He was a C student, for goodness sake. Can anyone even imagine him trying to teach Constitutional Law? One can only assume he had only passing acquaintance with it, in light of “The Patriot Act”, the utter disregard for our system of checks & balances, the complete distortion of the office of Vice President, and so many other actions and statements that completely went against the fabric of our country’s Constitution.
In conclusion, I would like to thank God, and the belatedly awakened voting public, for our current president. He has a clear passion for reading and learning. He is actually willing to consider ideas that contradict his own. The only problem I have with him is that he is a bit too conciliatory towards those on the right. I wish he was a little more like F.D.R. and used his political sway to push our country forward into a new era.
