Nasty Letters To Crooked Politicians

As we enter a new era of politics, we hope to see that Obama has the courage to fight the policies that Progressives hate. Will he have the fortitude to turn the economic future of America to help the working man? Or will he turn out to be just a pawn of big money, as he seems to be right now.

The Shreveport Times

The Shreveport Times: "The president's statements make me think of something I read in college -- 'The Prince' by Niccolo Machiavelli. In it, the Renaissance thinker writes about politics and what leaders should do to maintain power. It basically boils down to the fact that a leader should consider ethical principles but, should not use them.

He says a leader has only to pretend to be of good character, as most folks are simple-minded and will be fooled. I'm not going to knock the president's character because I don't know him personally, but I do believe he must have read 'The Prince' a time or two.

He keeps rewriting history to suit his needs. Machiavelli said a leader doesn't have to fulfill his promises when doing so would not work in his best interest. He says a leader has only to 'pretend' to be a certain way.

No wonder George Bush keeps pretending with us."
