Prevention is better than cure…
heck we all know that
and prevention in the short-term may be the more expensive option.
But over the lifetime of something it may be the cheaper alternative.
Who said that there was going to be a bubble burst in America in 2017 ?
If there are systemic flaws in America will they blame the Obama era or will they leave him alone, not because he was the first African-American President but more so that he tried to make it matter and in two terms tried to make a difference.
The mid terms are coming up in America and one questions who is there to replace the current president and to take on the responsibility of leading the country through challenging turbulent seas. There is not one strong leader who can lead in America, not because there aren’t any dynamic leaders of vision and strength, but because there are other influences in America and the president is merely one person at the apex.
Budget requests & demands from a myriad of sources for all worthwhile programs from health & education to defence and cyber-security. I have no bias towards America but what I do have is a keen interest in where they are headed and how they are hopefully going to be proactive rather than reactive during the remainder of the Obama era.
What will political science academics and foreign policy analysts anticipate will be the word from the State Department & the White House during 2014 & the end of the second term ? Will it be not what is said but what is not said that will be of importance. One questions what the Middle East will look like in 2017 and will the American people be involuntarily dragged into another global conflict.
Whilst the words well delivered as they may have been by Barack Obama have a positive spin, that spin one questions.
Let us hope & pray that a dead cat bounce does not happen.
