Over the years, our country has had its share of great orators; Men who could inspire us with encouraging words, enlighten us with words of wisdom, inform us with clarity, share their vision of a future or soothe a troubled nation with intelligent reason.

The history books, (or at least when I was growing up we had History books in school Geography too) and we learned about Lincoln’s great Gettysburg Address, Patrick Henry’s “Give me liberty or give me death” speech, and FDR’s first Fireside address.  Greatness continued though the decades with Ronald Reagan’s Brandenburg Gate speech, in  Franklin D. Roosevelt’s “The only thing we have to fear…” inaugural address, John F. Kennedy’s “Ask not what your country can do…” speech, Lyndon B. Johnson’s Voting Rights speech in 1965, Dwight Eisenhower’s  Military Industrial Complex speech in 1961 and Obama’s Race speech, “A more perfect union”.

That’s My Story and I’m Sticking to It

“…I went to an Ivy League school. I’m highly educated. I know words. I have the best words, I have the best, but there is no better word than stupid. Right?”

But now we find ourselves led by a man of few words  or How To Speak Solely In Superlatives.  Although brevity is often hailed and long-winded monologues not widely appreciated, consider the current state of presidential pronouncements.  Pronouncements may too generous a description for the 140 characters tweeted on an irregular basis by POTUS.  The following list features words MOST USED by Donald Trump.

AMAZING – TERRIFIC – TREMENDOUS – BEST – WINNING – STUPID – WEAK – LOSER – WE- THEY – MORON – SMART – TOUGH – DANGEROUS – BAD – LIGHTWEIGHT – HUGE- ZERO – CLASSY – BIG LEAGUE

What better day than today to recap recent Presidential and presidential wannabees’ actions, remarks and general hoo ha all around.

Clinton ended up in the hospital and had some arterial stents put in.

Bush purportedly appears on a billboard asking the country if they miss him yet –uh huh about as much as I miss having a root canal.

Speaking of root canals, I wonder how many dentists sent angry letters and emails to the White House afterPresident Obama likened the popularity of the Bailout Bill to that of having root canal surgery.

Joe the Plumber is no longer supporting McCain because “he’s no public servant”. True Joe, oh wait that’s not your real name and you’re not really a plumber either, are you?

McCain is running against Hayworth, a former talk show host who aligns himself with the tea partyers and accuses McCain of being “just like the Liberals”. Indeed!

Sarah wannabee Palin is campaigning for the sale of her book, John McCain in Arizona and herself as a possible Presidential candidate (oh dear God!).  Now, how in the world does this woman have time to take care of her special needs baby Trig,  oversee the upbringing of Piper and Willow (read Soccer Mom) , be a Grandma to Bristol’s baby and write letters to Track who is overseas, and hell who’s making Todd’s dinner? Oh Yeah, she’s one of us, right?

Former Viper, I mean Veep. Cheney is still running, not for office but off at the mouth. His appearance on Sunday’s This Week was replete with predictable prevarications.

The White House sent Biden out as attack dog and he and Cheney had an informal debate.  It wasn’t really a debate and there wasn’t any winner but interestingly enough both parties are claiming victory – lol.

On the upside of President’s Day, you could get a good deal on a new car, a mattress, kitchen appliances, clothes and bath and body works plus a lot of us had the day off. And I’m sorry that I started typing  so late that by now it’s not actually President’s Day any longer – Oh Well…..
