So after the Scare Force One debacle I am sure Obama and his team have been busy doing damage control. So this morning we get one of the biggest CYA PR events of the decade!!
Color my cynical but I imagine this was thrown together this week. And the July 4th re-opening of the crown will be an Obama – “Yes I am Patriotic” meme. And of course Obama will roll-out the Scare Force One photos and claim this was the intent all along. And the left will jump all over this as a “…see the right has spoiled the surprise!” Just watch – over the next few months Obama will deflect the public’s attention away from rising inflation, the Taliban in Pakistian, the failing banks, a bankrupt Chrysler (with GM not far behind)….Obama knows the summer of 2009 will very hot for his team.
Re-opening the Statue of Liberty on July 4th is a great slide of hand to take any MSM focus off the planned July 4th tea parties.
