A quote from a wise man, whom we owe so much………
“Enlightened statesmen will not always be at the helm.” –James Madison
He must still be around, making observations about our current situation.
I saw a good example of this on TV this morning. First I see a short story, with pictures of people lined up at a gas station, filling up their cars, getting ready for Hurricane Irene; then a shot in a grocery store of people stocking up on groceries, batteries, ice and water, getting ready for Hurricane Irene. Then a shot of people staring hopelessly at the flight schedule board as flight after flight out were canceled ahead of Hurricane Irene’s arrival. Then a shot of cars streaming off one of the outer islands of North Carolina, again, ahead of Hurricane Irene.
Then later in the show, a shot of our president playing golf at Martha Vineyard. The contrast was vivid.
I’m surprised he, or michelle, hasn’t had the EPA issue a regulation that forbids a Hurricane during one of his vacations.
