Political Agenda with Danian Michael
If you have flown before, this analogy will resonate. At the beginning of every flight as the plane is taxiing away from the gate, the flight attendants jump into action and regiment a set of procedures that we all could probably recite right now. First they tell us to, "Return your seat back and tray tables to their upright position." Then they tell us what to do if there is a crash landing on water (they never tell us what to do if it crashes into a mountain; however, I wonder why). At some later time in the presentation we are told what to do if we are to lose cabin pressure; pull the oxygen mask towards you and place it over your nose. If you have kids or if there is a young child next to you (which gets to the point of my analogy), first place the oxygen mask over the child's nose then tend to your own needs. Am I right about that? Those of you who are frequent flyers are saying right now, "Actually Danian, you are wrong about that; first the adult puts the oxygen mask on and then attends to the child." If you noticed my dyslexia in reversing who gets the oxygen mask first in the adult-child scenario; my hats off to you, because you may be the only person actually paying attention (we all should be) in the whole flying community.

Democrats hoping to turn a recent "discovery" by a maid after a Republican gathering into gold for their party might want to settle down and think about some other things politic. Excitement over a presentation to Republican leadership should fade fast when put to contrast with Democrat collusion efforts, cover ups and open deceit. Politico reports:
"The Republican National Committee plans to raise money this election cycle through an aggressive campaign capitalizing on "fear" of President Barack Obama and a promise to "save the country from trending toward socialism."
Politico's piece has sparked a number of lefty blogs, who are looking for anything they can find to turn attention away from the FAIL Obama policies and the current debate on the monstrous government health care takeover. Using a paltry 2 pages from the presentation found, Democrats have begun to rail on Republican efforts to milk the rich donors based on the fears of this country turning to socialism etc.. But at the same time ignoring that many donors were AT THE RETREAT where the presentation was made.
