The driverless car is coming, The Wall Street Journal said in a special report Monday. Driverless cars actually have drivers but the car itself does the hard work with robotics. Why not?
We live in a driverless country now. The president is in the driver’s seat but hasn’t been driving the growth of jobs or foreign policy. Leading from behind on Mideast policy isn’t driving. It’s abdication.
The analogy can be stretched only so far because Barack Obama has been driving the health care reform debate (at the expense of economic expansion) and driving us toward a cliff on the deficit. On energy policy he’s driving us in the wrong direction or going 25 in a 70-mph zone when it comes to energy independence.
The country needs a new driver. The car of the future may tool down the road while the driver watches a video, but countries need someone behind the wheel who can steer, brake when needed and pass slower-moving vehicles.
