The American Christmas Tree

Did you ever have a Christmas when you sat on Santa's knee, telling him what you wanted and asking if you could have them?

Do you recall smiling with glee at his broad grin and reassuring voice as he replied, "yes you can"?

Then on Christmas morning you woke up, and sleepy eyed and ruffled hair you ran to the Christmas tree and saw bright, shiny boxes scattered around the base. Little fingers trembling with excitement and expectation, you opened the first box and...zilch. None of the boxes contained anything you wanted and expected. Santa had said "yes you can" but all he delivered was fancy looking boxes filled with lack luster goods.

That's how many Americans must feel about Barack Obama.

Wherever you may be - be safe
