The President and First Lady spent the weekend at the White House attending church as usual and also attended Christmas in Washington an annual Christmas event which was taped on Sunday.

Today the President and Vice President met with the Secretary of State at the State Department to discuss the situation in Iraq.

Over the weekend the outgoing Secretary of Defense Don Rumsfeld made a farewell visit to the troops in Iraq.

Enjoy your visit to Sanity Island

Condi looks like she has been doing some serious thinking lately. Hope she is OK (as you can see, I'm a day late here).

Re the Rummy quote: "This President is almost a victim of the success he has had with preventing another attack on America."

I heard him say that yesterday on talk radio. I think it was on the Michael Medved show, although Rummy probably has repeated it more than once. He is not the first person to say that, although perhaps he is the most prominent person to do so. It is a spot-on accurate assessment.

Think back to the Clinton years and recall how many surrogates he had to carry his message all over TV, editorial pages, conferences, and other public communications avenues. Contrast that public relations effort with the Bush years. With the exception of talk radio, President Bush has had few surrogates out there speaking on his behalf throughout his entire term, while the Left has continued to have free reign to spread its message across all forms of media. Even talk radio turned -- viciously I might add -- against President Bush in 2005, as many in that medium were busy trashing him to try to show what independent thinkers they were.

Heck, even people who had been in his administration and 41's, fell all over themselves to criticize him -- while saying they really weren't, of course. (Baker and Powell, are you listening?)

So it's good to hear someone of Rummy's stature saying that on talk radio.

I looked on the H&C website for the transcript, but all I could find was the video.

I'd like to have it in writing with a link if anyone comes up with it.

IMO, it's a priceless quote, not only because it's true, but because of who said it........and when.

"And this president is almost a victim of the success he has had in preventing another attack in our country, because people have allowed the nature of the threat to diminish in their minds. And I think that we ought not to."

I was listening to Hannity with Rumsfeld on Fox when I posted #28, the abbreviated quote.. Thank you so much for the transcript.
