No Big Bands. No girl singer with a gardenia in her hair to warble “He Wears a Pair of Silver Wings” or “I’ll Walk Alone.” No Bob Hope USO shows. I am sure Wayne Newton is doing his patriotic best, but Hope was a tough act to follow. Nothing personal about Wayne, but if God wants to really punish me, instead of sending me to Hell, He can put me in an elevator going nowhere for all eternity with Eddie Fisher singing “O, My Papa” and Wayne singing “Danke Schoen” piped in.p>Now that I think on it, WWII songs were more about “love on hold” than love of country. Still they served a purpose. All that pent-up emotion on both sides of the war. Made ‘em want to win it and get back home.

Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
