Random Thoughts After Independence Day

I personally thought the speech the President gave at the foot of Mt. Rushmore was his best yet. Others may have a different opinion--as I've said before, no one was ever convinced during a Facebook argument, so I don't plan to engage in one.

I watched the Press Secretary hold another "briefing" just now. It seems to be a time when every reporter who's called on tries to focus on something that the President said or tweeted and asks questions that gets them their five minutes of face-time. Still wonder if the briefing would go better if the camera stayed on the podium, and even faster if they submitted written questions.

We flew our flag on Independence Day--actually, we fly it every day. Enjoyed the speeches and fireworks from a distance (sometimes with the sound turned way down). How about you? We have some things we still need to correct, but I'm glad to be living in the USA.

Yep, glad to be living in the USA.

I think written questions in a press conference wouldn't work. Reporters would complain that they never get to do followup questions. But I think it's a BRILLIANT idea to have the camera only on McEnany's podium.

I note, when flipping back-and-forth between Fox News and One America Network's coverage of press conferences that one sometimes only keeps the camera on the podium--and I'm liking that one better.

I agree.

Thanks, Nancy.

Totally agree. I proudly fly my small flags. I wish I had a flag pole--I'd get a large flag.

I'll do it so long as I can. Also found a garden flag that says "The Mabrys will always stand for the flag and thank our servicemen."
