Opportunity

Imagine this:

"My fellow Americans, two days ago an earthquake, followed by tsunamis, devasted the shorelines of nine nations and killed at least 30,000 people. Tonight, our Muslim brethren are suffering, but because of our commitment in Iraq, it is difficult for us to respond as we should. Therefore, I am ordering an immediate drawdown of troops in the Iraqi theatre and committing our resources where they will do the most good. There is no organization on Earth more accomplished at logistics than the United States military, and the problem of relief to these millions of disaster victims is a problem of logistics. I call on all other nations to help us in this great effort to rescue the imperiled, comfort the wounded, and reverently bury the dead. What the rest of the world supplies, we pledge to deliver, and I ask all Americans to examine whether they can make the sacrifice to lend their skills, their time, their wealth and their compassion to this mobilization. Let us show all nations that no one who suffers is ever alone as long as America is in the world. Thank you, my friends, God bless you, and God bless the United States of America."

What the heck are you smokin'? More likely he that nauseates would blame the tragedy on al Qaeda, or the democratic party.

If Safire can make up fantasy worlds where's he's right, I can make up fantasy worlds where the President does the right thing.
