Gosh, worf. The last I knew, the job of the State Department and the Secretary
of State is to find ways to communicate with and strengthen the relationships
our country has with other countries which feel the same way. Making a few phone
calls must be cheaper than sending over an army to do a little "regime
change", right?JWB wants statesmen in the State Department.
I'm not sure what that means, though in JWB's case I suspect it really
boils down to stateman being defined as "a guy from MY party". Maybe
When I see this picture accompanying this article, it reminds me of a
contemporary in the Army that threw medals and disgraced our uniform of the
United States Army when he came back from Vietnam. He has the same smile and
expression in this picture. His dad's friends, the Kennedys treated him
well over the years and that connection has kept him electable, especially with
a Heinz 57 wife and her $$$. We used to have statesmen in this
position. Now we have a longboatman and a longshoreman support as a Secretary
of State. Senators used to be statesman, but that has gone by the wayside,
also. We are seeing our government's elected and appointed servants move
down the slippery slope of power and prestige.
Remember when our leaders concerns, were for our country? We need to avoid
entangling agreements with other countries.
