    Default In someone else's shoes. Brian Cowen.

    If you were in Cowen's shoes what would you do that's different, given his past form and his now predicament. How would you change the mindset of the electorate and become a leader who can bring us out of this recession. Everybody disparages him but I do often wonder what I would do in his shoes. What would you do?

    Look the guy has lost all respect of the people and needs to go.

    An election needs to be called and a new Government with a mandate to implement the medicine.

    So your question is based on the premise that the electorate 's mindset can be changed and with that I disagree,

    Seriously what would you do if you were in his shoes? Just asking. Nobody seems to have an answer.

    I'd call a general election and to hell with it. Throw the towel in so to speak. Let the opposition sort it out. That's what I would do. So there

    Ok, your question is "what changes would Cowen make"?

    Our answer is "get fncking rid of Cowen".

    Your question, our answer.

    And Lenihan. He's an overblown fool.
