“Big deal, big rocket; thinks he has the world in his pocket.”
(I Believe in You: How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying)
THE WEEK THAT WAS: How I Diverted Attention From My Snow Storm Fiasco or How I appeared Busy Although I accomplished Little, or How I Created a Lot of Attention with PR Blather or How I Heaped Praise on Myself That I did Not Deserve
Sign the Anti-Bullying Bill – To appear caring, warm and fuzzy, although I rather like bullying. Besides I can call it a “tough” bill which has a nice ring to it.
Direct attention to Higher Education – Appear to be concerned about our colleges and universities although I don’t plan to help them in any way; plus it’s another opportunity to push my Tool Kit.
Issue another “In case you missed it” e-mail – to show how others love me, and besides Mike does all the work preparing it.
Announce my Transportation Trust Fund Plan – Maybe my best idea of the week because it is so vague, unclear, and misleading that others will be discussing it for days to come.
Attack the Dems for their Back To Work NJ Bills – It’s always gets attention when I attack them; plus it just gets everyone confused when I assault them for creating bills I might actually like.
Push aside the State Republican Committee Chairman without appearing to do so – It’s fun and easy to do, so let people talk about that for a while.
Fire seven county education superintendents – Requires no great effort on my part and keeps my favorite pot boiling.
And now after another successful week and with snow returning to NJ, I wonder where my family wants us to go to escape this dreary weather.
