In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

  1. Well, here’s Obama, faking it for yet another day.

    By contrast, here’s a Wikipedia article about someone who doesn’t fake it, not ever–the nominee for Secretary of Defense Gen. James Mattis, the “warrior monk”, as he is known. It’s a straightforward article, it appears, that highlights this amazing Marine, who began as an enlisted man and who will likely become our nation’s next Secretary of Defense. It’s a spectacular story, and it’s worth a read. ISIS, you’re done. The game’s over for you.

    1. I hope Mattis does a ME field tour and Afghanistan too.

      Talk about a new sheriff in town! Sad, but it will take someone like Mattis to right the damage that Barack Obama has done to our military.

      Ash Carter meets Mad Dog Mattis — would love to be a fly on that wall.

      1. After Hagel and Carter, there’s a lot of catch up and repair to be done, that’s for sure. Mattis is the perfect person to do just that.

        Apparently, those who served under him are near unanimous that he is brilliant, loyal to them, has their back, and also has high expectations. He isn’t shy about cutting loose those who aren’t on board.

        It’s looking like a mostly great set of Cabinet officer nominees, thus far. Like you, I have reservations about Romney as SOS, but I counter that with this: Trump obviously runs a tight ship, is completely ready to fire those who fail, does not tolerate sneaky behavior from those he hires. He expects loyalty but balances that with an open ear to honest criticism or suggestions for improvement. Trump expects superb performance from all. Romney has a reputation as a trouble shooter, a fixer (I don’t know if it’s really deserved or not), so if Trump keeps a tight bridle on him Romney might do OK. I dunno. Act 1 of the play begins Jan.20, we’ll have to wait and see.
