No Sign of Leadership
With the Republican convention finished, I continue to be in awe of the “Audacity of Hope” coming from the speakers who addressed the GOP audience — hope in the fact that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan will be hired to do a job without ever revealing what their intended agenda will be, other than to say, “My way will be better.”
It’s akin to interviewing for a job, being asked, “What will you do for us if we hire you?” and responding, “Well, in my former job, I was really good at what I did. I can’t tell you right now what I’ll do for you, but if you hire me, I’m sure you’ll be happy. Just trust me.” How many of the “job creators” would hire such a person with that résumé?
There is a skit from “Seinfeld” where George answers a question about telling the truth by saying, “It’s not a lie if you believe what you say.” If a lie is repeated enough times, then surely it must be true, regardless of the facts.
Pandering and flip-flops are not a signs of strong leadership. Someone else is steering the ship. According to recent reports on Fox News, the ship is somewhat floundering.
