Deja vu all over again?

History has a way of repeating itself. As it relates to presidential repetitions, the stakes seem to get higher and higher.

Hmmmm...what does this current situation remind you of? Do you get a certain vibe from our leadership?

It's not the late 70's and lots of things are different in the world...but I think I know what this reminds me of...

Pastor,

Weren't you about 5 years old when Carter became President? You must have a really good memory! :-)

LOL.

Actually Roger, I was indeed 5 when he was elected. But I was the ripe old age of 9 when we'd pile in the family station wagon to go over to Canada to buy gas!

I also distinctly remember my father- a died in the wool old school union Democrat- using less than choice words about Carter, then doing the UNTHINKABLE in 1980- he voted for REAGAN!!!!

I remember the night the “nut” peanut farmer was elected. And then, from out of nowhere his idiot brother Billy appeared for his first interview! This guy was a complete moron! The Dem’s did a good job of hiding him from public. Wonder what happened to ole Billy? I know his Billy Beer was a joke.
I have cousin who was a full bird in the Marine Corp that was assigned to the Pentagon’s high security team. He had weekly meetings with Ole Jimmy boy and my cousin said he was absolutely inept, believing anything told him by his own people, who themselves didn’t have a clue. My cousin said Carter refused to listen to sound military leaders advise, winging it by a shoe string and never having a plan that made any logistical sense. Sounds like the “nut” we elected in 2008 doesn’t it?

Your father was a "died in the wool old school union Democrat?" Thank God for his sake there's redemption in Christ! And I'm sure now, under your exceptional Biblical teaching, he realizes that voting for Reagan didn't contribute any merit toward his justification, but was rather a God-ordained fruit demonstrating the genuineness of his faith. :-)

Roger, I can tell you this, during our fun/fellowship time at our HFG groups Tony sr. knows he is way out numbered, so Ginger speaks mostly about politics, Tony just smiles. Tony today is what I would call a thoughtful Democrat. That means he thinks before he thoughts.
