Steve Jobs lived an incredible life. Much will be written about his legacy and the indelible imprint he left on this life. He is arguably one of the most visionary men of our century. He did for technology what Henry Ford and Thomas Edison had done in the previous century with industry.
Steve Jobs redefined “cross-over” appeal. People of all races, languages and cultures embraced him as the change agent he was. There has been much written about his mercurial temper and his pursuit of the next big thing.
His ability to bring disparate groups of people together via technology and his inventions far surpasses any other human being on the planet. Wouldn’t it be nice if the Democrats and Republicans could do the same? Better yet; the Republicans and President Obama?
The bombshell that was dropped this past week by writer Joe McGinniss has rocked the political world. Sarah Palin appears to be another disingenuous conservative who is not what she appears to be. Her conservative credentials have been tarnished and rendered null and void. Hopefully this book, which is an unauthorized biography, will close a chapter in the comic tragedy which is Sarah Palin.
At the conclusion of last week’s GOP debate, the big question is, does Mitt Romney have a chance to become president? Before Rick Perry’s entrance into the campaign, Michele Bachmann was the one who seem to be the front runner; now enter Rick Perry. The GOP debate turned out to be a duel between Mitt Romney and Rick Perry.
If this writer had his druthers, I would definitely support Mitt Romney over Rick Perry. While very much an Obama supporter, the current field of Republicans don’t seem to offer much. Rick Perry is certifiably crazy and just as dangerous as Michele Bachmann. It’s interesting that the moderator did not ask Rick Perry about his stance on Texas seceding from the union. One would think, given that position, would you really want a secessionist in the White House?
