THat is why sweeping changes can be made on such short notice. Anyway Howard is a dam site better than Bob Hawk was. Hawk was only voted in because he fooled people (or people were stupid enough to fall for) into thinking he was "just a regular bloke" . Yeah, regular alright. Regular enough to show up to cocktail parties in Canberra get sloshed, and then demand from the hostess of the party to be shown where the girls were waiting for him as arranged and then throw a fit after finding out that no such arrangements were made. What a loser!
Yeh right so what has changed from Hawk to Howard. Don't be naive.
In addition at least we don't have a leader that gets himself a head-.ob from staff. I mean my goodness what a role model.
Then you have another cowboy that rides into town on his daddy's saddle. How sad!
Yes we have our problems, there is no doubt. In the scheme of things I would prefer to have the problems that Australians face today than the problems that Americans face.
We can pretty much hold our heads up high in the World. You have to wonder if most American's can do the same.
