Dear Readers: I am heading to Detroit on a Northwest flight tomorrow. What, me worry? Honestly, I am probably more concerned with the ice levels on I-94.
In terms of the major news of this week, as it relates to Detroit, I find it interesting that after the 9-11/anthrax combo-package in 2001, there were no further completely enacted terror events on U.S. soil under President Bush. Under President Obama, we have had two — the Fort Hood massacre and Northwest Flight 253. And Obama hasn’t completed his first term. Frankly, I think the description “flaccid” should replace the term “dithering” as the adjective du jour for Obama.
Yes, Obama, I do know a smattering of French.
Therefore, as I leave for Detroit tomorrow, I HOPE I will be around to agitate for CHANGE in 2010 with you.
I say that we should make Jasper Schuringa, the Dutch tourist who jumped on terror suspect Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab, an honorary American citizen like we did Winston Churchill.
I will be back the first week of January, to opine at regularly scheduled intervals. I hope nothing big happens while I am gone — the last time I left town, the House of Representatives passed Cap-and-Trade.
Until I return, here is cute video you may enjoy.
On a final note, the Anchoress has a wonderful round-up: Obama and Doing vs Being – UPDATEDMoney quote: I suspect that what Obama wanted was to be the King, not the President. (Read the entire post, it is brilliant).
