“Well, Govan, if we are to die, let us die like men.” ​

Gen. Patrick R. Cleburne

 

Is there ANY ONE of you who doubts that this man said this when all hope (with honor) was lost and he proudly stood up to do what he saw as his duty?

 

Is there ANY ONE of you who doubts that this man knew the consequences of performing the duty he bound himself to do?

 

Is there ANY ONE of you who could stretch credulity enough to imagine these words EVER falling from the lips of the man in the White House?

 

Is there ANY ONE of you who could stretch credulity enough to imagine that the man in the White House EVER entertained the concept of SELF SACRIFICE FOR DUTY WITH HONOR?

 

Is there ANY ONE of you who thinks the mixed race child raised in privilege in Hawaii by doting white grandparents to now occupy the White House EVER stood any severe trials of character?

 

Is there ANY ONE of you who truly thinks that any omission of this courage is irrelevant in the character of the people we choose to lead us? Scissors-32x32.png

And here we see a problem Obama has. This something that occurred to me the other day. This guy has never really failed at anything, and so doesn't know how to deal with it.

 

"Winning is great, sure, but if you are really going to do something in life, the secret is learning how to lose. Nobody goes undefeated all the time. If you can pick up after a crushing defeat, and go on to win again, you are going to be a champion someday."

Wilma Rudolph

 

We look back at the past Presidents and they have all failed at something in their life....not this guy.

FDR...Polio, Truman...bankruptcy (more than one I believe) Ike...career hit a brick wall until Dec. 7...Market-Garden, Nixon....Where do we start? Ford...almost had ship blown out form under him...then there was Betty's problem, Carter had to resign his commission because his father dies, lost an election, Reagan career over in the 50's...try getting shot, Bush HW...take offs and landing should always have the same number, Clinton....rough childhood, lost an election, Bush W...Bankruptcy...Obama....?
