When the Shoe is on the Other Foot
It would appear that our nation is set to have survived for the 45th time another American presidency. So in the spirit of all fairness now that the shoe is on the other foot, what has changed?
Was it as we were told the lunaticsical rantings of someone with no political experience? Or was it the lunaticsical rantings of those with a lifetime of “public service” yet out of touch with reality? And will history record the reality or the legends?
Politicians today want to set the “gold standard” on president-elect Joe Biden who will soon take office as the 46th President of the United States and on vice president-elect Kamala Harris. Why would they, wait I get it “When they go high, we go low” – Michelle Obama.
Everyone is calling for a clean slate, a do-over for former Vice President Biden after all he must be given a 100-day chance to prove himself. It’s as if the past half century of public service has not already defined him. And Senator Kamala Harris has as much public service in Congress as President Trump has in the Oval Office. Should we ignore the service she performed while in appointed or elected offices in California? Do they not demonstrate her contributions to public service?
Contrary to what you think you know about the former occupants of the White House we have had some real doozies that have soiled the morality of the Executive Branch well before #42.
So my real question is about having the shoe on the other foot (so to speak) why do I have the feeling that it is now poised to kick? In my opinion our nation is in a real quandary (if that’s even the right word to use)? We are about to experience a senile president with the stage set for Act 25 to be launched at the first sign of trouble. Should that happen how will his successor deal with the complexities of the most important and powerful office in the nation? Now think about that for a New York minute……..I am the Real Truckmaster!
