No, it's not about a game of blame as our representatives and newscasters are working so hard to sell. No, it's about accountability. I yearn for the good ole' days of politicians who actually took responsibility. Remember the plaque on Harry S. Truman's desk: The Buck Stops Here? Well, I want a president who will admit when he's wrong, will fire inept appointees, and a president whose actions we could actually look up to and wish our children would grow up to emulate. I want a commander and chief who stands heads above the rest. I want a leader of the free world who speaks truthfully - always. I want a president that exudes honor and believes in justice for all. It's heartbreaking that we are so far removed from any semblance of what a true leader should be and a republic that performs as it was intended: to protect its citizens.
