What Can Be Done?
Here's a good article
:I recently ran across the text of a letter, penned by liberal historian and former Secretary of the U.S. Navy George Bancroft, about the president of the U.S.
In it, he wrote: "How can we reach our president with advice? He is ignorant, self-willed, and is surrounded by men, some of whom are almost as ignorant as himself.
"So we have the dilemma put to us. What to do when his power must continue for two years longer and when the existence of our country may be endangered before he can be replaced by a man of sense. How hard, in order to save the country, to sustain a man who is incompetent."
If you're smart enough to read this blog, you can probably guess what comes next:This respected commentator on not-so-current events wasn't writing about Bush.
He was writing in 1863 about a guy named Abraham Lincoln.
