When President W. was in office the Libs used the term ‘cowboy’ as a derisive term to mock him – something I never understood.
To me the identity of ‘cowboy’ is a compliment. My view is of course largely based on the Hollywood Western heroes of days-gone-by, but in truth most folks who appreciate the American Cowboy are good, grounded and faithful people.
To me a cowboy represents:
- A person of integrity (a handshake is as good as contract)
- An individual (yet still works in a team)
- Hard working
- Level headed
- Standing for what is right
This comes to mind because of these stories found on Drudge today:
Hopefully nothing will come of this but, I know I’d sleep better knowing that a Cowboy was in office, rather than an Milquetoast Apologist.
