Once Upon a Time – We Had a GREAT Man in Office


Everywhere that freedom stirs, let tyrants fear“.

This video has been circulating for a few days.  It is a tear jerker.  It goes to show what a Great Man we once had as POTUS.

America is a Nation with a mission – and that mission comes from our most basic beliefs. We have no desire to dominate, no ambitions of empire. Our aim is a democratic peace – a peace founded upon the dignity and rights of every man and woman. ”

It has been quite a few hours since our last combat troops pulled out of Iraq.

Some have argued that confronting the threat from Iraq could detract from the war against terror. To the contrary, confronting the threat posed by Iraq is crucial to winning the war on terror.”

Have you heard any word out of the White House thanking this Great Man for his service to our nation?

I sent American troops to Iraq to make its people free, not to make them American. Iraqis will write their own history and find their own way.”

We had a POTUS who knew who he was.  He is comfortable with himself.  He reeks of greatness.

The momentum of freedom in our world is unmistakable – and it is not carried forward by our power alone. We can trust in that greater power Who guides the unfolding of the years. And in all that is to come, we can know that His purposes are just and true.”

It is called honor, decency, and leadership.  It is called courage.  It also is just a little bit of Texas swagger.

Use power to help people. For we are given power not to advance our own purposes nor to make a great show in the world, nor a name. There is but one just use of power and it is to serve people.


One thought on “Once Upon a Time – We Had a GREAT Man in Office

  1. I remember watching him on the little hill with his arm around that fireman, telling him the world was going to hear from us…

    And I sat down hard because for the first time in my life I believed in a politican.

    I believed because I wanted to…maybe I needed to.

    I also remember the shame I felt when Carter admitted to asking his 9 year old about the hostages…and then shrugging when my foreign colleagues ragged on about our intern chasing president because I don’t do public embarrassment well and it was easier to just not give a damn.

    GWB made Americans feel safe…and proud. And that part of me that is a stickler for fairness gets sick everytime someone uses the “but Bush did the same” after complaining about Obama.

    There is simply no comparison…one was a leader, the other doesn’t know the first thing about it.
