POLITICIANS: GEORGE PATTON KNEW THEM ALL TOO WELL
During his life, Patton had a great deal to say about politicians, but the quote at the top of this blog best sums up his feelings. And I agree with him completely. Yes, one can point to a few good politicians in our time, however, their names escape me. But, in general, I think Patton's assessment is correct, especially today.
Patton was quoted on a wide range of topics, "politicians" being one of them. One such quote is so true today that I thought I'd share it with you:
"You must be single minded. Drive for the one thing on which you have decided. You will find that you will make some people miserable; those you love and very often yourself. And, if it looks like you are getting there, all kinds of people, including some whom you thought were loyal friends, will suddenly show up doing their Goddamndest, hypocritical best to trip you up, blacken you, and break your spirit. Politicians are the worst; they'll wear their country's flag in public, but they'll use it to wipe their asses in the caucus room, if they think that it will win them a vote."
