Fifty years ago this month, President John F. Kennedy announced to the entire nation that we were on the threshold of nuclear exchange. He spoke clearly and directly to the American people and to the Russians, who were playing roulette with all of our lives with atomic weapons in Cuba.
For the last month, our current president has been avoiding dealing directly with the situation in Libya, telling misleading excuses for tragic mistakes denied by his strange vice president and his equally evasive secretary of state.
To have a straight-talking president who actually deals with reality instead of favoring cultures that attack us will be a relief. Go Mitt.
