Now with over eighteen months in the White House the Obama Regime is having to come to grips with ruling versus running.  Even though he still seems to be in campaign mode, Obama has to be coming to the realization that being the President of the United States is not anything like community organizing.  He can no longer say anything he wants or make conflicting promises.  He is still doing it, but citizens have expectations that are not being met.

Who Would You Follow Up That Hill?

Bunker Hill, Trenton, Antietam (Sharpsburg for you southerners), Cold Harbor, Gettysburg, Argonne , Iwo Jima, Midway, Utah Beach, Inchon, Hamburger Hill, Kuwait, Iraq, Afghanistan should mostly be familiar to you as sites where America found glory while many of its sons and daughters gave their last full measure.

These famous battles could not have been won without dedicated military leaders.  You know the guys who would lead the charge up that hill, up the beach, or across that field.  It always intrigued me about how soldiers follow their leaders even though many know that death awaits.  Medals are often given to those that die or are wounded, but not enough is given to those who simply follow and fight.
