Nope, not anymore. The FAA is under Mineta, but the FAA's security functions were transferred to the newly created TSA, which is under Homeland Security.
I think y'all are missing one obvious choice for a replacement.
The replacement needs to be someone who's conservative. Someone who is truly passionate about protecting our nation. Someone who is even willing to buck the existing power structure to do what is right.
It would also be helpful to have someone who is an experienced administrator, like an ex-governor. But it should also be someone who is familiar with Washington politics. The President values loyalty, so it has to be someone he trusts.
Given that this is a politically risky job, the person selected should not be someone who is planning to seek elected office in the future. And even better if that person is moving out of their current job.
The President might even want to reach across the partisan divide and appoint someone who happens to be a Democrat.
Zell Miller seems to fit the bill pretty well.
You don't know Jack, Diddle E. Squat...
wasnt there a rumor going around a few months ago that his health might be suffering a bit?
Anyway, hopefully he is getting out of there mostly intact.
I doubt that Rudy will take up the position, mainly because I dont think he wants to get too involved with any administration right now, which might dim his chances either in 2006 (not likely) or 2008 (his likely goal).
I think Tommy Franks would be an excellent choice or maybe Ollie North, if you can get him to take a pay cut....
Exactly, we need Rudy here in NY. Rudy can only fill the position until 2006 ;)
Your not alone. Ridge should have stayed Governor. He was not effective in this position.
Bears repeating. The man took a near impossible assignment and did his best. His detractors are still alive & free to criticize him. I add my thanks to him.
So let's simplify this whole color scheme thing...keep the alert level at RED until the borders are really secured.
When the POTUS finally settles down in Washington, I hope we begin to get the lowdown on exactly what he's promised
the sly Fox, and what compromises he's made with the North.
How can this man not understand what he's doing to this country with his border policy?
Excellent plan. I second that motion.
