RIP Roger Mudd who was related to Doctor Mudd who set John Wilkes Booth’s leg after he assassinated Lincoln. Roger would kill any remaining hope that Teddy had at becoming President although Teddy had done most of the heavy lifting already. When you listen to Kennedy talk about America’s strengths in the 1970’s you understand just how much of that advantage we have lost over the last 50 years.
While it would be unrealistic to expect to have maintained that lead after WW2, the question becomes will America continue to decline or will it repair itself. Under the current circumstances we are mostly throwing tons of good money after tons of bad debt. This in turn will make it much more difficult to staunch the continuing decline in America. We are turning ourselves in a 2nd class world leader and a 3rd world country at the very same time.
And that is all I’m going to say about that!
