A plan to survive the Obama years
Every strong Republican president who succeeded in protecting America has allowed Americans to become complacent about national security, thereby opening the door for weak Democrats who allowed enemies to threaten and attack America without penalty. Obama will be no different, and Americans will have to learn again that there can be no economic security without national security.
He doesn't mention that Democratic presidents have left economic messes for the next Republican to clean up, which was the norm until now. I consider this a bipartisan mess in part because neither party has figured out, beyond a few individuals, that this mess was caused by an easy money policy at the Fed. When will a prominent Republican step up and criticize the Fed?
I wonder how long the honeymoon will last when unemployment tops 8% next year?
