I can't believe I am saying this... but I have to agree with LBJ. It seems as soon as the man gets elected.. he is fair game for all to kick around. The hail storm of critics!

Quotes very interesting Patty.
I like very much the one told par JF Kennedy. Do not wonder what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country.
And I love too what President Obama said "Yes, We can" and I hope he will be able to do all what he wants to do for his country.
