Like many American’s, I’m infuriated over President Obama’s fiscal agenda. I think this guy is a socialist. I also think he’s one of the smartest people in Washington. Thousands of people around the country kept their kids out of school yesterday because President Obama was delivering a motivational speech to schools across the country via the internet. I read the speech, and it was brilliantly written. It had nothing to do with healthcare reform or anything on the administrations agenda. It was a motivating, inspiring speech to help kids, period. Every school kid should have heard that speech, but they didn’t because their parents are mired in middle class thinking that say’s if I don’t agree with Obama on one issue I don’t agree on ANY issue. In mental toughness, critical thinking is the ability to remove emotion from any equation and treat each idea or action seperately. I didn’t vote for Obama and I wish he wasn’t President, but critical thinking tells me he is a very talented guy who can help our countryprogress on various social issues. As long as he doesn’t bankrupt us in the process! Listen to this post and let me know what you think. As always, ALL views are welcome on this blog, not just the ones that agree with mine or any one elses position. After all, this is mental toughness, not club med! I’ll look forward to your comments.
