Crisis Management

Tired of the daily grandstanding by a “Crisis President” that wallows in third grade ad hominem invectives, gratuitous self congratulations, and thinly described projections of irresponsible personal dithering and fiddleing on other national and international leaders?  I suggest turning off the tube and picking up a copy of A.J. Baimes’ The Arsenal of Democracy: FDR, Detroit and Epic Quest to Arm America, Erik Larson’s The Splendid and the Vile, A Saga of Churchill, Family and Defense During the Blitz, or David McCullough’s Truman, for an unfiltered view of how real crisis President mashalled the will, spirit and resources of a hurting nation facing a collective existential crisis.  There was a time when our leaders rose to the occasion.  As Lincoln used to say, “This too will pass.”
