Players? Fran Townshend

Few can match the role of Presidential appointee of an Eliot Richardson or a Donald Rumsfeld. Usually the ravages of time or the flukes in the election process keep many from another appearance on the national stage. A combination of  youth, brains, talent and connections often become a difficult combination for the dice to role in favor of more than one appointment. Many once in office never believe they can ever enjoy any job outside government again no matter how challenging.

From time to time on this blog I post on certain persons that I believe have had dramatic influence on policy in the past and if they return again. One of my choices is set forth below!

Frances Townsend

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This article is about the U.S. Homeland Security advisor. For the old-age pension advocate, see Francis Townsend.

    While ten years her senior and while I have not this individual, I have often seen her on CNN and during challenging times when her valued perspective has been shared with CNN viewers.

    It would be nice to hear frm those who read this blog and who know Francis M. Fragos Townsend to hear about their working with her and their opinioon of her contribution especially to security issues affecting our beloved Republic for I have listened attentively as she has offered her experience and I believe she is a valuable resource for all Americans to look to listen to when decisions are being made and it would be nice to hear Francis Townsend’s opinons re Wall Street protesters –

    We need more dedicated and caring people like Mrs.Townsend to make themselves available to the nation for the uncertainty of the future is becoming a reality for more and more and We must be able to turn to those we can entrust ‘Ol Glory to…no the “good ‘ol congressional beltway thieves” and this WH administration and staffers who seek to spend and spend without remorse blatently responsible for the demise of our country to the extent that I shout “treason” and as an American born Hellene, there is no other country that can stand so tall among nations.

    It is quite evident to so many here on ‘main Street USA’ that we are in peril. Our liberty bell becomes fainter and fainter and those so opprressed have less and less hope as they, too see the weakness and obvious ineptness of those entrusted to serve. Self-agenda in arrgant demeanor has prompted me to fly my front proch flag upside down. Mrs. Townsend, having served the US Coast Guard so well knows quite well what a flag upside down depicts, America, our beloved Republic in distress and without the quality in decision-making and leadership of more Patriots like Fran Townsend, we will be besieged by not only those who seek our demise, but those whose oath of office and allegiance to country is so tainted….

    Thank you Francis M. Fragos Townsend for your continued service to this our nation which has been until very recently, a beacon of hope to so many in distant shore….

    God Bless America!
