Longing for a ‘Cowboy’ POTUS

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
  • Self-reliance
  • Resilience
  • Respect
  • Loyalty
  • Level headed
  • Trustworthy
  • Standing for what is right

This comes to mind because of these stories found on Drudge today:

(WSJ) U.S. Fortifies Hawaii to Meet Threat From Korea

(Fox) U.S. Military Set to Intercept North Korean Ship Suspected of Proliferating Missiles, Nukes

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.
