    Just a few short months ago people were claiming the government would collapse, the job was to big from them, Enda Kenny should be on TV more and so it goes.

    But instead of courting the Television Studios or looking to increase his popularity Mr Kenny along with other cabinet ministers set about restoring Ireland to its greater glory and rolling up his sleeves to get down to some tough negotiations and hard work.

    So far Ireland has seen;

    8 months of continued falling unemployment,
    Increased employment and investment from huge multinationals,
    A deal on the promissory notes,
    The Successful agreement of Croke Park 2,
    continued social peace despite tough budgetary decisions,
    continued falling crime figures,
    a deal on the interest rate of the Fianna Fail debt burden,
    cuts to the waiting times of those who are applying for Irish citizenship,
    Successful implementation of the Croke Park agreement and millions of savings to the public purse,
    Improved our nations standing within Europe,
    One of the few EU countries expected to have growth in 2013,
    The end of Anglo Irish Bank,
    The successful sale of Irish Nationwide.

    I know there is plenty more that could be added to the list but I just wanted to give everyone a quick taster of all that has been achieved in such a short space of time.

    Of course there are those who hate good news stories, and those who want to revel in doom and gloom, they will find fault with anything and demand quicker and faster change, they will suggest we should behave like babies and throw the dummy out of the pram when dealing with Europe, those who would tell us to look at poll results or change isn't quick enough. But reality is proving different, Ireland is in full recovery and things are getting better and better. A light is shining at the end of the tunnel and for those who want it, things are getting better.

    Come the next election Fine Gael will most likely be returned with a larger majority and renewed confidence in politics from the electorate, Ireland will be in a great place.

    And what for Mr Kenny, the great man who rode above all the attacks and continued his course of returning this country to greatness, how do we say thankyou?

    And this is the crust of the thread, how do we say thank you to Mr Kenny, the man who saved Ireland. We must as a people come together and find a way to show our gratitude for the brave work he has done and continues.

    Just how do you reward the man who saved a nation?
    You forgot to mention the end of the Bank Guarantee and the return of confidence in placing deposits in our Banks!

    Wake up and get serious, look at the reality, not your trite dogma.
    Yes, do that.

    If you truly believe he's doing a good job then leave him alone and let him get on with it: only FF'ers and FG'ers who believe the state need FF are want to 'rise', and usually as a forerunner to falling disasterously.

    Unfortunately you've caught the Kenny-virus.

    The symptoms are easily dignosed:

    Blame Fianna Fail for having to do things you'd prefer not to do.
    Blame Fianna Fail for not being able to do things you'd like to do.
    Blame Fianna Fail for your failures, for your u-turns, for any weakness you may have, for having to take it in the rear from the ECB, for having to hire an army of advisors and spin doctors who can't get anything right, for the lousy weather . . .

    Two years on and Kenny still resorts to blaming past governments for current failures.

    Is he better than Ahern or Cowen? Yep. So's my Golden Retriever.
