Fox personality and potential Presidential candidate, Mike Huckabee, called Tuesday for President Obama to take the lead on changing public perception of TSA screening techniques. On his radio program and on the morning show Fox and Friends, the Huckster urged President Obama to take the First Lady, First Children, and First Grandma over to Reagan International for the full TSA treatment in a gesture of good faith and shared sacrifice with Americans being subjected to revamped screening techniques.
“If he thinks this is an appropriate way for us to deal with security as he has defended, then I’ve said, ‘OK, Mr. Obama, take your wife, your two daughters and your mother-in-law to Washington Reagan National Airport and have them publicly go through both the body scanner and the full enhanced pat-down in front of others…. If it’s OK for your wife, your daughters, and your mother-in-law, then maybe the rest of us won’t feel so bad when our wives, our daughters and our mothers are being put through this humiliating and degrading, totally unconstitutional, intrusion of their privacy.’”
“Skin in the game” comes to mind.
So, Mr. President. Will You Go First?
