Dazzled by tomorrow's bright promise
Two full terms of inept, mean-spirited leadership have left voters feeling battered and resentful. They want to believe that the future holds something better than divisive political wrangling and overseas adventurism. The Republican candidate carries the political baggage of long years as a legislator, as well as the stain of association with the discredited regime. That's why this new guy is so refreshing. He's had political experience, but he's no Beltway insider. He projects an endearing combination of intelligence, decency, and self-deprecating humor. I'm telling you, all Obama needs is a peanut farm and a drunken baby brother.
