The Difference between a Leader and a Politician
Posted by Mike O on January 15, 2008
One of the reasons I’m a FredHead to the end is because I’m really sick of politicians using weasal words to mask core truths. We need leadership, not politics.
Fred was asked about what would be be able to do about energy independence. His response: “Not much; I only would have two terms.”
As one who understands the industrial processes involved, I know that answer is absolutely correct. And the government doing ’something’ about it is the wrong answer, anyway. It’s the truthful answer of a leader who believes in the power of the market over the power of government; it’s not the answer a politician like Mitt would give.
