I WANT AN AMERICAN PRESIDENT
By Coach Dave Daubenmire

I know what you are thinking. Coach Dave is finally coming out of the closet as a “Birther.” He has joined that ‘”fringe element” in America that doesn’t think that Barack Obama is an United States citizen.
Well, to be perfectly honest, I have been part of that group for quite awhile. I question where the president was born. What is wrong with that? “Trust but verify” a wise man once proclaimed. I think Obama would be wise to come clean on a lot of things.
He is a “shady” character. That is what my mother would have called him 30 years ago when folks were permitted to make judgment calls about people without being called names. Today there are groups of people that you are not able to criticize, at least not unless you are willing to face an onslaught of accusations designed to destroy your character.
Most folks don’t want to have to go through it, so they just learn to keep their opinions to themselves. As a result, this call for “civility” has created a culture where the “shady” ones are able to get away with treason.
Bill Clinton is shady. So are Hillary, Newt, James Carville, Paul Begala, and Rudy. Every time I hear them talk I wonder if they have their fingers crossed behind their back. (I am sure you could add a few names to the list.)
