Former Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell has a message for the Republican and Democratic parties and their leaders this political season: Don't wuss out.
The two-term Democratic governor — and a former Democratic National Party chairman — is also the author of the book, "A Nation of Wusses: How America's Leaders Lost the Guts to Make us ...
According to Rendell, politicians change positions too often, refuse to admit mistakes or credit their rivals and won't say "no" their base. Underlying these and other signs of "wussiness," says Rendell, is a lack of backbone.

So who's a WUSS ?
We heard it the other way around in the UK - if Mitt was to get in - politicians of all UK parties were worried about the guy on the World stage and no longer want to all behind the US with any more "wars" he may start - as his International credentials are already at a low.
Here's another one for you Lisa - you will love it -
Looking forward to Obama tonight - I love a good speech ;-))
lol ~ we’re really not supposed to discuss these issues on the site, Peter.
I personally feel the push towards abortion on demand increases rape.
(not protecting woman & children again)
The vast majority of abortions are not conducted due to rape.
I think if we all held ourselves to higher standards, there would be less abortions ...
& less cases of rape.
Abortions don’t cure rape.
I submit abortion (the mentality of abortion) may even cause rape ...
objectifying the woman.
Rather than stopping the elements in our society that stops this sexual objectification,
we instruct the woman, "you can just further subject yourselves to a brutal procedure ...
that kills the baby in your womb and demoralizes you further."
I’d love to see a man offer himself for the same procedure.
“Please, lay down on my sterilized examination table” ~ ! lol yeah
... and the woman says, “what a great idea” ~ this will make me *free*.
Eve was deceived and Adam failed to protect her; there is nothing new under the sun.
I want to talk about my trades today ! & I'm running out of time !
Quick one Lisa - me and say 70% of my male friends over the age of 45 have had the "cut" - its so logical as you get older and already have a family - - cannot see the problem ?
I can see we live "miles" apart lol - but I still like having fun with you ;-))
Have a great Friday
been there, done that *wink* ~ no more *surprises*
despite the fact that I don’t hold actors & actresses in the high regard
that the rest of the world seem to (that’s not scary but ignorant ?) ...
he says scary ? scarier than what’s going-on right now ?
I have a strong feeling she wouldn’t be apologizing for Americans
after one of our ambassadors was sodomized & murdered !?!
The man that is in our White House set this up and supported the
Blaming murder & destruction on a YouTube video that has
been out for a long time while the mass media / the state run media
purposefully fails to report that the radicals were chanting, ...
“we’re all Osamas, Obama”. (!)
I’d take 100 Sarah Palin’s over a deceptive jihadist.
At least I know she she’s a countryman / woman.
Good God ! when are folks going to wake-up out of their stupor !?
Evening Lisa - you have had another good day on your pairs without doing anything - very nice. Re you comments - terrible and very sad whats happened and of course very worrying about the whole situation getting totally out of hand. I am sure you know the quote the infamous Sarah Palin said about a war in the Middle East - but I won't repeat it because yet again it involves religion - a subject that cause so many problems.
I am please you don't hold actors and actresses in too high a regard - because the US as had them as a President and Governor - and Mrs Palin his the biggest actress around lol
I do agree with you she is through and through an American Country woman - but she is just so damn unintelligent and I give her credit that she admits it
On the International Stage you must realise the US is not held in high esteem due to its arrogance and trigger happy approach to all who do not agree with its policies. Restraint and control of emotions is needed - diplomacy etc - remember two wrongs do not make a right.
I certainly don't agree with everything Mr Obama has done and my support would be more with the Republicans - but I am also very concerned about Mitt Romney and his comments and just do not fancy World War 3
PS - I Though you are Pro Life - ?
mark my words ~ *they* want to regulate the internet, ...
that’s why *they* are blaming all this on a YouTube video
and people ...
(not just Americans, but around the world, apparently)
are, quit frankly, stupid enough to buy into it (?)
What’s happening is only the beginning of sorrows, friends.
Dont you think it would be a good idea to regulate the Internet - I do for sure.
The Free Press in our country are going mad about the internet bloggers getting away with anything they like - and it true -
You think about it the power a a "troll" and then magnify the damage that can be done with a few million of them - winding up everybody around the World.
I am all for a "Laissez Faire " society - Freedom and less interventions - BUT you have to have rules and regulations to protect us all. You have to have controls in place - otherwise people will just end up out of control
The Internet is now out of control - I dont mean restrict it to the extent that happen in China - but certain World Wide Standards are required. Its common sense surely ?
For a man that is fixated on the markets makers and
their trickery, you don’t seem to be aware of the fact
the media can twist and distort people in any light
they choose (?)
You believe your media says Sara Palin is dumb and
Barack Hussein Obama is intelligent?
The man never speaks without a teleprompter !?!
If he did and could actually put 2 sentences together,
we’d see his true intentions and how way off in left
field his ideas are.
On a lighter note :
The day he was elected I immediately thought,
Americans have just elected the Emperor of Japan
after the bombing of Pearl Harbor.
War is never good or desirable,
but there will be no life under Sharia Law.
This is an age old battle, Peter and an
example of why it's necessary and important to study
Freedom isn't free in our fallen world.
But ~ if we don’t get right, we will be destroyed.
England as well, because he’s an "anti-colonialist"
