True Grit

As a certified old guy, I can talk about 1969 movies and how they relate to today - it's a privilege and I respect it.

The 1969 John Wayne movie was about the baddest sheriff around - the one with enough 'grit' to outgun the bad guys and save the little girl.

Here's a quote:

"Little girl Mattie Ross: Who's the best Marshall they have?

Sheriff: Bill Waters is the best tracker. The meanest one is Rooster Cogburn, a pitiless man, double tough, fear don't enter into his thinking."

Who has more grit - Hillary or Obama?

For me it's a no brainer: Hillary, hands down. She went after the health insurance industry and lost the first round. But she is still on their trail and will bring them to justice. You go girl.

Obama - Where's the track record of tough fights? Would you want him or Hillary representing you when the chips are down and the stakes are high? These questions are not replays from the 1990's, they are always with us. It's the President's job to handle them for us.

So far, he is a great preacher and orator, but can he cover our back?

That's the question.
