Be like Barack?

Dear Sir,

In 2009, when former Premier Dr Ewart Brown was pushing hard for change in Bermuda, I recall reading in your newspaper numerous letters in which writers wished that Dr Brown would be more like President Obama.

Today, Mr Obama’s approval rating has plummeted and he is no longer the great Saviour.

No longer do I read of strong support in Bermuda for the US President.

Politics is a strange world!
