Camelot Revisited?

(Originally posted just a few days after the presidential election)

Since the election, that’s what I’ve been hearing — that our new president is so like JFK that his time in office will be very much like a new Camelot.

What a huge burden to put on him. Especially since he already has the all but impossible task of digging us out of the recession brought about by all the over-taxing and over-spending by our previous president. The last time we had a budget surplus, a balanced budget and enough jobs to go around was when Bill Clinton was in office. Now we’re so deep in debt that our great grand children will still be paying it off. Indeed, we’re practically a bedroom community for China now.

Reading the news these days is depressing to say the least. I’m reading of racial threats, people buying guns and ammo and bibles. Seems to me that if we can’t learn to live together, we might just tear ourselves apart.
