Politics Is Politics

Today's Maurin

A politician is an artist in the art of following the wind of public opinion.

He who follows the wind of public opinion does not follow his own judgement.

And he who does not follow his own judgement cannot lead people out of the beaten path.

He is like the tail of a dog that tries to lead the head.

When people stand behind their president and their president stands behind them they and their president go around in a circle getting nowhere.
