Former True Believers Left Behind

From Lee Iacocca’s new book, Where Have All The Leaders Gone?

The President of the United States is given a free pass to ignore the Constitution, tap our phones, and lead us to war on a pack of lies. Congress responds to record deficits by passing a huge tax cut for the wealthy (thanks, but I don’t need it).

The most famous business leaders are not the innovators but the guys in handcuffs. While we’re fiddling in Iraq, the Middle East is burning and nobody seems to know what to do. And the press is waving pom-poms instead of asking hard questions.

That’s not the promise of America my parents and yours traveled across the ocean for. I’ve had enough. How about you?

Interesting to see the CEO class breaking ranks with Dubya. Took them long enough to find out he was bad for business! Also interesting that Iacocca, unlike a lot of other second and third generation immigrants, doesn't seem to be in favor of pulling up the ladder now that they themselves are safely on board.

Iaccoca may have as a tender spot in his heart for big government. After all Carter saved his ass with a huge bailout for Chrysler. Which by now, given the present state of the US auto industry, looks kind of like treating cancer sith a bandaid.
