The Lesson Of Leadership - Ronald Reagan



  There was a famous moment during the Battle of the Bulge in December 1944 when General Eisenhower recognized the fact that Hitler had overextended himself presenting the Allies with a golden opportunity. Most of his other Generals were in a panic mode after seeing their forces pushed back and encircled after being surprised in the Ardennes. Eisenhower had the strategic vision to realize that we had the forces and resources to overwhelm and cut off the German and win the war. The Republican Congress can do the same thing to Obama in their fight over not raising the debt ceiling. His Majesty's popularity rating has fallen to 37%. Granted Congress rating is even lower because we see them for what they are. Corrupt career establishment politicians. Yet if they would just lead, and fight the good fight. they would win in the end. Instead they are showing signs of caving. This is what we have come to expect. Their resources however are the American people. Most grass roots Democrats, Republicans, and Independents like myself do not want Obamacare and we never have. We realize that if we don't get spending and debt under control our kids will not have a future. Besides these issues there are many other issues that unite us like the 2nd Amendment, illegal immigration, gay marriage, Islamic encroachment, political correctness, keeping God in the public arena, or 1st Amendment issues, a strong military, liberal indoctrination in our educational system, and the list goes on and on. It is not left versus right but right versus wrong. We make up the majority of Americans but we have no leadership to rally around in Washington. The Republicans, like Eisenhower, need to have the strategic vision to realize that it is Obama that is overextended and exploit this opportunity by calling on their vast resources, the American people, to defeat this tyrant. They could also learn from Reagan who always had his finger on the pulse of the people. He believed in them and trusted them to do the right thing when they were properly informed. He knew how to by-pass a biased media and talk directly to the people. The left never knew how to fight Reagan and all they could do was watch in complete frustration because he had the people on his side. Reagan had a saying. "When they don't see the light, you turn up the heat".
