A lazy day yesterday. Other than my mid day walk, I just hung around. Was in the pool floating about on a noodle for quite a while.
Last night I grabbed a bite at the bar at La Trattoria. Chatted with a couple of tourists from different parts of the country.
I am getting nervous. These guys were very down and hard on Biden. Obama, of course, as well. From the gut!
This type political opposition scares me. Many people the past several years cannot have an intelligent political discussion. And generally it is the Republicans who talk this way. No disrespect intended to my friends of a different political persuasion than I.
It has to start with the candidates themselves. And since I view this as primarily a Republican failing, it is there that I look for redress.
I read somewhere yesterday that the last Presidential election where the Republican candidate himself did not resort to negativity, casting ill begot aspersions on his opponent’s character, etc. was Ronald Reagan. Yes, when Reagan ran for President it was generally a campaign of issues.
The moral of the story is we have to return to the high ground. And what better example to follow than that which Reagan set for us.
