Thursday Morning Open Thread

Good morning.

Big speech by Obama today on national security. Creepy speech from Cheney today on national security. Watch how frenzied the cable news talking heads get.

Would that Cheney and Bush paid as much attention to national security and terrorism during the first months of their administration. Instead, Bush and Cheney ignored the threats — and left us unprepared for the attacks of September 11th.

Okay, a pop culture thing: Adam Lambert got ripped off. He was such a better performer than that kid from Arkansas.

Thread the news…

On October 27, 2010, Joe was one of five bloggers who interviewed President Obama. Joe is a DC-based political consultant with over twenty-five years of experience at both the state and federal level. Joe has managed political operations and legislative efforts for both candidates and issues-based organizations. For seven years, he was the Director of State Legislation at Handgun Control, Inc. He served as that organization's first Political Director during the 2000 cycle. Joe is a graduate of the University of Maine School of Law. In addition, he has a Masters in Public Administration from Lehigh University and received his B.A. from the University of New Hampshire. Joe also has a fun dog, Petey, a worthy successor to Boomer, who got Joe through eight years of Bush and Cheney. Joe likes to think he is a world class athlete having finished the 2005 Chicago Marathon in the time of 4:10. He has completed six other marathons as well -- and is still determined to break the four hour mark.
