What Obama needs to say on Inauguration Day
The main thing he needs to do is study FDR a bit more and Abe Lincoln a bit less. Why? Numbers do tell. FDR gave his life blood and heart for 4 terms. Whew. And through it all he was confined to a wheelchair. This man is a god in my book. In my book he is one of the gods, but then so is Lincoln along with the sainted JFK.
That means that Obama has huge shoes to fill does he not? He needs to remind the American people how freakin hard it will be to pull off the unpullable, the impossible, the implausible in a few short years.
He needs to remind us that this is a bad as it gets in terms of economy and the underclass in this country. Obama probably won’t read this advice but he will know what to say and when to say it. But some like Jack Cahill will be questioning who put what words in whose mouth. Ouch. As Heloise likes to say.
