I was immediately taken back to Ronald W Reagan's simple answer when asked that question about our strategy regarding the Soviet Union and the Cold war. His simple reply:
"We Win -- They Lose!!!"
That reminded me of another Reagan minute.... remember his famous debate with Jimmah (former worst president( Carter? When he asked the question: "Are you better off than you were four years ago?" "Is the nation stronger than it was four years ago?" "Is unemployment lower than it was four years ago?"
Where, Oh Where are the GOP debaters today that should be posing those same questions today? Replacing the four years with eight years?
