Lee Iacocca – Where Have All the Leaders Gone?

Iacocca may be trying to sell a book; he may not have all the answers, but he does have a fine rant in Where Have All the Leaders Gone?

Am I the only guy in this country who’s fed up with what’s happening? Where the hell is our outrage? We should be screaming bloody murder. We’ve got a gang of clueless bozos steering our ship of state right over a cliff, we’ve got corporate gangsters stealing us blind, and we can’t even clean up after a hurricane much less build a hybrid car. But instead of getting mad, everyone sits around and nods their heads when the politicians say, “Stay the course.”

Stay the course? You’ve got to be kidding. This is America, not the damned Titanic. I’ll give you a sound bite: Throw the bums out!

There is quite a bit more in the excerpt at the linked page, and presumably much, much more in his book. The excerpt was enjoyable. I probably won’t bother with the book, however.

    He’s come full circle on energy policy as well. He’s now a champion for hybrid technology and other alternative energy sources…

    I picked up the book to read on my flight back to Indiana this coming Tuesday. Unfortunately I’ll need another book since I couldn’t put this one down today. This is a must read for any American who still cares about our future. There aren’t many American’s with credibility such as Lee’s that are willing to say what we all have been wondering about.
