If the North Koreans begin shelling South Korea, I want my President to answer the telephone. Whether I voted for him or not.
I am thankful for many things this year.
I am thankful that I have a President who understands that an attack on the United States, or an ally, by a rogue nation is not an excuse to seek new powers or laws to derogate the freedom of the American people. I am thankful that my President told me this during his hard fought campaign.
I am thankful that my President has a loyal opposition who understand that when the United States or its allies are attacked by a rogue power all Americans should come together behind their President to support him in his handling of the immediate crisis, while politics can come later. I am thankful that the Republican Party told me this, many times, over the last decade.
I am thankful for these things, in advance.
