There's a great editorial in today's paper, where a conservative and/or libertarian voice sneaked through:
President Barack Obama is coming to Alaska.
So what? He’s not coming to learn. He’s made that perfectly clear in the video he circulated when he announced his trip. He’s coming to use Alaska as a backdrop to further his argument on climate change.
He’s coming to use us.
Of course, he is the president, and we are supposed to welcome him with open arms, and we will. However, this state has some strong disagreements with this president, and he never bothers to take a minute and listen to what we have to say.
He's to be in Anchorage on the 31st, Seward on the 1st, and visiting several villages the day after that.
I wonder if anyone told him you can't land a 747 on a grass strip by the river in Kivilina? Maybe they're fitting it with pontoons?
