Thoughts for the day: President Obama vs. The Roosevelts. Sunday, Sept. 14th.
Michael Moore calls President Obama a big disappointment. Via the New York Post.
He has a video about that here:
I think some of the reasons the President can't get things done must be chalked up to the Congress, and maybe to his inner circle and advisors. There is only so much that a President CAN do. But I do think he could somehow talk to the public more about what is going on, so we can get on board with things.
I think we need to keep in mind that any President can't do things alone, he needs the support of the American people and of people in both Houses of Congress, people from all walks of life, and all political parties, working together and getting things done.
And we all know that not much is getting done right now.
Mr. Moore doesn't think that the President is a total failure though. He says in the article, "'I think Obama … he’s done many, many good things,' Moore soft-pedaled to Hollywood Reporter, before going off. 'But he’s also been a huge disappointment.'"
Taking about Presidents, the lives of the famous Roosevelts, including Eleanor (and of course, including Theodore and Franklin) will be featured on PBS tonight at 8 Central.
The show is "The Roosevelts" by famous documentarian Ken Burns. I plan to watch this. It plays all week. Bob Schieffer said today on Face the Nation (CBS News) that he thought that we could learn from these Presidents how to get things done. He's watched this show already.
Onward and Upward!
