Op-Ed Columnist: The Floo Floo Bird: " The architect Frank Lloyd Wright warned of the floo floo bird, 'the peculiar and especial bird who always flew backward . . . because it didn't give a darn where it was going, but just had to see where it had been.'
That's us. With our eyes fixed on our rearview mirror, we obsessively review catastrophes past when we should be looking through our windshield at dangers ahead.
Today we are engaged in the wrong debate. The brouhaha about whether the new Bush administration treated the threat of Al Qaeda as 'important' versus 'urgent' is history almost as ancient as whether F.D.R. did enough to avert Pearl Harbor. "

Long live the floo floo bird. The wrong debate, at the wrong time, by the wrong people, with the wrong conclusions. But modern libs only know how to look backward. They have no vision for the future except tax and tax and take power from the people for themselves.
