It Worked For Abe

As Campaign 2012 begins to take form, the rhetoric heats up. Rick Perry calling Bernanke's actions almost treasonous is a good example, not to mention the gay bashing by Michele Bachmann. Political candidates would be well served if they heeded the words of Buddha, "Words have the power to both destroy and heal. When words are both true and kind, they can change our world".  Anyone who actually  heeded these words would probably be considered a crummy politician in this day and age. Notwithstanding, he or she might make a great president. It worked for Abe.

Indeed! Wasn't Abe the perfect example of the tough dude with a careful, careful tongue? Good blog!
