I hope and pray that the United States never suffers the terror of a nuclear or biological attack because President Obama has already used up all the scare words I know like “catastrophe” to describe his first outing in the land of legislation.
President Obama sounds unnerved, off message, angry and distressed.
Maybe its the notoriously bad food at the White House.
Interestingly, on the same day that President Obama is hitting a new high in frustration, we are hearing in the media today from a very cool pilot and combat veteran.
The audio of Captain “Sully” Sullenberger, pilot of US Airways Flight 1549, which crashed-landed safely into the Hudson River due to his cool-headed expertise, shows a man of experience, good temperment and skill responding not to his emotions and fears but to his training.
Sullenberger also teaches crisis management…. You think he’d declare the stimulus mess a “catastrophe”? Maybe just a legislative debacle….Maybe a leadership fiasco.
The president today did not sound cool and calm. He sounded rattled.
Just my observation….
