(Or What makes a hero? )


          Lee Iacocca wrote a book asking a profound question.  “Where have all the leaders gone?”  Not  “flowers”  dear reader…. Leaders.  His question  was asked in the latter days of the last Bush years when Democrats  controlled both houses. Remember Mr. Iacocca,  at age  55, saved Chrysler from bankruptcy. He is a national hero.  Unlike Mr. Lee,  Obama and his auto team stole all the valuable assets from the shareholders and bond holders of the same company and  gave them to the Italians and Unions, for pennies on the dollar. A National disgrace.     From tinsel town comes Rhett Butler  who spoke his mind when he said, in a small ending line, to Scarlett O’Hara,  in 1939, “Frankly My dear I don’t give a Damn.”  These real and  fictional characters,  share a common thread.  They lead and were leaders .

Men like General George Patton,  lead.   Oh! by  God,  did he lead.   Remember his statement,

“No bastard ever won a war by dying for his Country.

He won it by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his”


Listen to the words of another great leader, Admiral Faragut,  at the battle of Mobile Bay, “Damn the Torpedoes, full speed ahead.”  Also listen again to the words of Winston Churchill, the son of an American women,   “Some people regard private enterprise as a predatory tiger to be shot. Others look on it as a cow they can milk.  Not enough see it as a healthy horse, pulling a sturdy wagon. “ Lastly but not leastly we had President Reagan,   “ Mr. Gorbachev tear down this wall.”  Conservative leaders one and all.  Name a leftist hero!!  Bet you can’t.

Lee’s  question remains unanswered.   Who on the political scene, today can be called a real leader?  One with guts and stamina.  One who calls a spade a spade.  Where is this person?   Filtered that’s what.  Sarah Palin might have been,  Congressman West might be if someone will help.  Who else?

Obama, Pelosi, Reed, etc are the worst examples of leadership. They rip and steal and have contempt for the flag and the average person.  With power in their grip, they never even came up with a simple lousy budget.

Romney and the rank and file of GOP leadership, are filtered into meaningless drivel.   Afraid to speak truth.  Afraid of their shadow.  Where is the congressman who has the guts to file a bill for impeachment of Obama, if for nothing else, forging a birth certificate.  Where is he or she?   Who will raise the flag on Mount Vernon?  Who will damn CBS, NBC, CNN and say it like it is?   Where is the leader who cares for you and me, instead of themselves and their place on the national scene.?

Where? Where are they?   Gone…. Long gone.   If you and I do not demand their return, do not demand truth, do not demand taking the calculated risk, do not demand true leadership, we are likewise gone…..long gone.

Frankly my dear , do you give a damn?
