I don’t think I have ever seen a flamboyant president as Donald Trump. Most were quiet and reserved and didn’t get angry when some person asked them an obnoxious question. But the best response to an obnoxious question came from Gen. Russell Honoree. In a press conference, right after Hurricane Katrina, a reporter asked the same question he had just answered. The Gen. turned and looked at the reporter and asked, “what are you, struck on stupid.” I am cautiously optimistic about our new government. I am sure it will not be the same old politics. And I am grateful for that. Do you know what the definition of insanity is? It is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. Every leader that won battles and changed the world, led from the front into the battle. They earned the trust and respect of their people. It is because they shared in the hardship as well as the good. Leadership is a learned skill. Yes, people have attributes that develop into the skill. But ultimately, it is the person deciding to learn to lead. This man took his attributes and learn to lead and I say quite successfully. It is interesting the both President Nixon and Reagan encouraged Donald Trump to run for the office of President. The next four years will be interesting. I am praying for good success.
