If you’re like me, when you see the President of the United States of America address the country — particularly after a tragic event — you expect to see leadership. Strength. Compassion for the victim’s families but steel terror instilled in the heart’s of those who committed the heinous act. I believe in justice for all!
Seventy-five years ago today the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, and other sites in Hawaii. If Obama was president at the time he probably would have hit the links the next day, but thankfully FDR was the President.
There is much to criticize about the Presidency of FDR, but on December 8, 1941 he was brilliant.
Unlike Obama’s speeches about terrorism, FDR named America’s enemy: Japan. And FDR calmed Americans’ fears. He instilled in them the confidence and hope they as citizens needed from their leader.
