LYNCH: President Trump is man of action
Philadelphia Eagles will command the attention of even the political world for a weekend.
The complaint about the release of “the memo” seems to be the threat of you and me learning that sometimes certain details are not shared with all concerned when requests are made for “approval of something.” The devil is frequently hidden in the details of what is not revealed. That is not a crime — although it probably should be. It might be a slight omission of all the details, but most of all it is a desire to obtain something at “all costs.” Even at the cost of one’s integrity if need be. But haven’t we heard politicians promise all kinds of good things during their campaigns but forget the promises, or find all kinds of excuses, after they get elected?
There are still many things about Donald Trump that don’t impress me as “presidential ’.” The truth, however, is I don’t have to visit his very expensive and ultra-private golf clubs and he can have all of New York and the White House. I like northwest Arkansas and was very fortunate to see the life-style the Washington inhabitants must endure and they are welcome to my share of it. I’m sure they don’t want cow manure on their shoes and that’s fine. I don’t want an invitation to a black-tie affair and I certainly don’t like having to wear a tuxedo to attend an event. I am happy to let Donald Trump represent me when the truth is being sought. And, I don’t care if he builds a hotel in Russia. But I do hope he continues to stress change in the nation’s capital.
