Bobo's baying-at-the-moon press conference keeps playing over in my mind. The reason is that I can't get over the difference between our pipsqueak President's fear-mongering and a true American hero's cockpit recording.
On the one hand, we heard a man who was the quintessential professional working his way through an enormous and imminent crisis – who remained astoundingly calm as he achieved complete success in saving the lives of all on board his plane.
On the other hand, we watched a man with literally no experience frantically telling us that if enormous sums aren't spent yesterday, we may never recover. And his lackies and sycophants cheered wildly. But everyone, even those cheering fools, can have no confidence in someone who has accomplished nothing, and who is younger than half the people he's lecturing.
And compounding his pathetic pleas was the display of raw partisanship that caused me to title my last entry as I did.
The boy has failed. The man succeeded. Everyone sees the contrast, and his supporters know that they voted for hope, not experience or accomplishment or even knowledge, because Obama has only his rhetoric with which to convince, and even that failed him last night.
Their President should literally be removed right now for demonstrating rank incompetence in his entire two weeks in office. The man is simply unfit to serve. We would have far more confidence if it were Captain Sullenberger at the microphone last night displaying the same calm, quiet crisis management skills that we heard at that cabin microphone during that frighteningly intense two minutes when 155 lives "might never recover."
America is rudderless and without hydraulics… and there's a nobody at the helm.
