NPR Staff just published an internet article entitled “Obama Blasts Oil Execs for Gulf Spill Finger Pointing” [see reference URL].
Please, first read that article.
If I were to respond to my President, as he once again has responded to his fellow citizens…how “harsh” could I be? How much could I tell Holder or my Czars to Hold ThemSELVES Accountable for their “cozy relationships”? How much could Whoever or Whatever ‘potentially lead to’…any or all bad things? How much could I blame ‘them’ for this, for that, for oh so many things? How much more than 134 Trillion can I add to? Ignore? IOU?
How much, in other words, could I “make a ridiculous spectacle” of myself?
How “stupidly”, in other words, could I act? How harshly could I bring on the cycles of crises, must act immediately, the worst is over?
How much, in other words, could I “be there from Day 1″, “doing all that I can”…while being wherever I feel on any day?
Mr President: your ends, reveal your means.
Mr President: your words and actions, reveal your values.
Mr President, I suspect I am very much the Coward your Attorney General declared me to be, along with the rest of the Nation, last March 2009.
I will keep trying to recover from the spectacles of my cowardice, even and especially if it is ‘hopeless’.
Mr President, I pray that God’s will is that you recover from continuing to condemn yourself, your values, your leadership… out of your own mouth, your own deeds.
Because Mr President, there but for the Grace of God…each person has been, and will go again.
