Book Review: Gerald R. Ford (The American Presidents Series)

May 24, 2016 Leave a comment

Kind of like his Presidency, this bio was short and to the point. I got in, got out and no one got hurt—with the added bonus that I didn’t have to wade through 1000+ pages to learn everything I needed to know about the only President that no one voted for. Most interesting to me was the cast of characters he surrounded himself with, men who would continue to haunt the halls of government for decades to come: George H.W. Bush as the Director of the CIA; Donald Rumsfeld as his White House Chief-of-Staff, then Secretary of Defense; and Dick Cheney as Chief-of-Staff. Washington D.C. is, indeed, a small town and our government an elite club.  (3 of 5 Stars)

The Immortal Jukebox

Sometimes the crowd cheers and you wear the laurel wreath. Sometimes you wear the motley of a fool and shrink before the jeers.

Sometimes you knock the ball right out of the park and set off for home with joy in your heart. Sometimes arriving home drunk and exhausted you look in the mirror and see your father’s face staring back saying- what in the name of god are you doing with your life?

In all the circumstances the only thing you have to do is to keep on keeping on. Keep on keeping on. Keep on keeping on whether you can read the signs of the times or not.

Keep on keeping on while you’re still on your feet. Keep on keeping on when you’re knocked clean off your feet. Keep on keeping on even if you’re lied to and left for dead with your head stoved in.
