On reading George Bush's discourse to the New York Economic Club last week, Cicero's insight came to mind: "To be ignorant of what occurred before you were born is to remain always a child."
With Iraq entering its sixth year, the dollar sinking to peso levels, the economy careening into recession, and 12 million to 20 million illegal aliens roosting here, Bush alerted us to what really worries him:
"I'm troubled by isolationism and protectionism ... (and) another 'ism,' and that's nativism. And that's what happened throughout our history. And probably the most grim reminder of what can happen to America during periods of isolationism and protectionism is what happened in the late -- in the '30s, when we had this America First policy and Smoot-Hawley. And look where it got us."
Let us try to sort out this dog's breakfast.
Hint: it wasn't NEM. LOL

Without trying looking it up, I'll guess since you posted it. It's a bit ambiguous, but it seems to be saying, Why is Bush worried about isolationism, protectionism, and nativism while we have all these other problems? So, it could be someone like Hagel or even McCain, but I do not think it's McCain since it seems to be a little critical of the Iraq war. Hagel is my guess.
Nah, Hagar would be smart enough to come up with that, but not Dave.
Diamond Dave might surprise you with his knowledge of Cicero quotes. Thats certainly what made me lean towards him. If the Quote was Socrates, then its Sammy for sure...that dude was a Socrates nut. "I can't drive 55" is basically the Socratic method in song form.
