A New Day in the U.S.A.
I can’t be too upset with George Bush. After all, without him we wouldn’t have Barack Obama.
As a country, and as travelers, we can now look forward to a world that will accept us as a forward-thinking, ground-breaking nation. Whether I’m in Thailand, France or Japan, no more sideward glances and looks of astonishment from other travelers of how we might have elected W not once but twice. And how, for so long, “we” supported his misguided world politics.
It’s too bad that the pendulum had to swing so far to the right before it could swing to a man of such integrity and with such a positive outlook.
Hmmm, can you tell I’m pleased as punch that we’re here and that we can, once again, wear our own U.S. flag lapel pins on our backpacks without shame or fear of being targeted by angry words?
It’s a new day for the U.S. and the world. The sun’s coming and while it may be a long slog, we’re on to something good here, folks!
