Topic: "Our Town" (5)
If he were to spend enough time on it, Frodo is sure that he could come up with several dozen quotes about New York City and the symbolic meaning of its recovery. Many of those quotes would be from Republican politicians who remarked about the need for Americans to "go shopping," and to "show the rest of the world" that "America is still open for business." Much of that, of course, emanated from a White House where the-then President would later be recognized for his long absences from the office on vacation, and as a notorious early-to-bed kind of guy. This train of thought follows from the criticism levelled at President and Mrs. Obama by the Republican National Committee for their "night on the town."
George W. Bush spent the entire preceding month in Crawford while Osama bin Laden and company put the finishing touches on their assault on civilization. The Republican National Committee defended the President.
George W. Bush observed the flooding of New Orleans from the air as a consequence of his return from another vacation of an entire month in Crawford. The Republican National Committee defended the President.
George W. Bush was sound asleep by 9 P.M. nightly, even while cargo planes returned to Dover AFB with the remains of American military personnel without the courtesy of participation by senior White House staff. The Republican National Committee defended the President.
George W. Bush devoted two hours of every workday to his personal exercise regimen, including bicycle rides in competition with Secret Service Agents. The Republican National Committee defended the President.
It can, in Frodo's opinion, legitimately be argued that no President ever took more time off from his elected responsibilities than did George W. Bush, and the resultant expenses for transportation, communication, and protection absolutely dwarf what had ever been spent before in this regard for any President. The Republican National Committee defended the President.
Whose side are these guys on?
Frodo is not going to spend one second justifying the use of a government airplane for a flight to NYC from Washington. AMTRAK, it seems, apparently works quite well for Joe Biden. However, using the same logic proffered by the Republican National Committee in defense of the Incomparable Moron, doesn't it seem like a good idea for the President and the First lady to "go shopping," and to show "the rest of the world" that tourists and businessmen alike can come back to America, safely?
Is it a requirement that in order to become a member of the Republican National Committee that one must first be certified as a totally partisan moron?
