On January 20, 1981, Iran released 52 American hostages. This release took place a mere twenty minutes after the first inauguration of Ronald Reagan. It was only 30 years ago, but the power of Reagan's positive, principled leadership seems far removed from today's executive impotence.
We watch Obama bowing once again, this time to a Chinese despot, furthering his weak foreign policy doctrine of expedience and accommodation. Or suffer through Obama's world apology tour, expressing regret for the ideals that have been the greatest force for good in the history of mankind.
I can't wait for the day when the Washington swamp once again aspires to be Reagan's "shining city on the hill".
