I am glad to hear President Barack Obama does not want to go back to his failed policies of the last 3 1/2 years. For example, no fiscal policy, no energy policy, no immigration policy and no jobs policy.

He wants to go forward. Sorry, you don't get any do-overs.

It's time for dynamic fresh and new ideas to turn our country around to go forward. We need to revive a drastically high unemployment rate, a crippled economy, a trillion dollars of new yearly debt and to revive Social Security and Medicare, which will go broke in about 10 to 15 years.

Yes, we need to go forward and do better, but this is not golf and you do not get a mulligan.
