Promises, promises, promises…

I’m watching the latest Republican Presidential debate.  It’s a series of “we should”, “We need” “I was the first”…and infinte promises from the candidates of what they would do as President.  The reality of our form of government is that the President would need the cooperation of many people to carry out his or her promises.    One of the candidates just got my attention with a lapse in memory.  Texas Governor Rick Perry  said that when he’s elected President, he will immediately eliminate 3 federal departments:  Commerce, Education and……..    despite repeated attempts, he could not think of the third department he would eliminate.  It was a humorous but failing moment for Perrry.  Now we are returning to promises, promises, promises….   Governor Perry just remembered that the third department he would eliminate is the Department of Energy.
