Imagine there's no make-believe, it's easy if you try

Joe Biden gave a commencement speech to the graduating seniors of a high school in Florida this past Monday.

Some excerpts…

That’s my simple advice to you today: Imagine. Imagine the progress you will see and achieve in your lifetime. Imagine the breakthroughs that are on the horizon and just beyond it…”

So far, so good. A little too John Lennon for my tastes, but what the heck.

Then the leftist in him kicks in and the make-believe follows…

“Imagine putting a roof of solar shingles on your house that will cost no more than today’s ordinary shingles…Imagine a world in which hunger is vanquished by crops that don’t depend on the soil, water or fertilizer, or pesticides to thrive…Imagine a world in which nations no longer depend on nuclear weapons for their defense.”

Afraid, we should be.

Yeah, kiddies…imagine. Imagine that. While the U.S. and the Euro-nanny teeter on the edge of the financial abyss, imagine how frightening it is to have “leaders” still dreaming of the long and forever-elusive Utopian world.

While millions upon millions of Americans have foreclosure notices in lieu of jobs, imagine what could be (Wink, wink) even though you‘ll never, ever find gainful employment in this prolonged economic quagmire driven by wild-eyed idealism run completely amok.

I have to tell you, President Mitt is starting to look pretty effing good at this point. Real effing good.

Five months to go. In my opinion, the rout is on!

Can't wait.
