Simon I sincerely hope that ALL Bahamians read your sentiments above and pay close attention to what you have eloquently stated. You have pointed out why the DNA and most of her members are not ready for prime time in Bahamian Politics. The next 4 or 5 years will be tough for the Bahamian Economy and our next leader with respect to navigating the Bahamian Economy through extremely choppy seas must be well abreast of the ecomonic environment. For too long, some Bahamians have felt that they can enter into the political areana because of their good looks, tall stature, large feet, nice clothing and their last name to name a few. Well the fact of the matter is that the Political Areana is a serious one in which you must have a firm grasp of all the issues, especially those which deal with generating revenue and maintaing a Nation's economic viability. The Bahamian Electorate is extremely saavy and they are indeed up to the task of selecting a Government that has The Country's best interest at heart and not their own or their pockets. God bless the Bahamas and Her wonderful citizens.


While I am not able to express myself as eloquently as the previous writer I must say that I agree with him whole heartedly. In this most serious downturn in the economy worldwide we need leaders that are not afraid to make hard decisions. Decisions that are made in the best interest of the majority of the citizens.The PM, the honourable HUBERT INGRAHAM has proven over and over that he is that man.


Imagine that after Standard & Poor’s recently downgraded US Treasury debt that an American politician stated that the downgrade was justified. He or she would have been roasted for talking down the economy, ridiculed for how such reckless language might erode confidence.

I seem to recall quite a few US politicians did just that, and it was considered politics as usual.
