Reasons – all fiscal – for returning to the 1950s: strong unions, higher wages, bright future, infrastructure…If you ignore the social implications (and, I’m assuming you can), what’s not to like about the 1950s? Eisenhower had his choice to be Democrat or Republican. Today, he wouldn’t find a home in the Republican Party…
I know a lot of people who won’t believe even this report that confirms that there was nothing illegal being done. Also, the report confirms that help could not arrive in time – and, even includes a finding that President Obama cleared help to be sent, but none was. In other words, we’ve wasted time and money trying to pin the blame on two people instead of blaming the whole system that allowed all of this. I’d like to point out that I can’t remember any of my friends getting all worked up over any other Embassy attacks that have happened, but the same ones have their panties in a bunch over this one. You have to wonder why. The truth is that we are not doing enough to protect our people when they serve our country overseas, but because of rhetoric and politics, we won’t fix what’s wrong. I haven’t had time to read the full report, but I plan on doing so.
I’m attaching a link to the NY Times article, as well as a link to the actual report.
