Leadership, and what it looks like

Know who this most benefits? Mitt Romney.

We’d been hit again. It sank in.

I already knew what the liberal response would be. They would blame Republicans and conservatives, Christians, and the National Rifle Association. No surprise there, even though it was not a Christian, but a Muslim and registered Democrat who carried out the attack. But why let little things like facts get in the way?

Yet I was most curious to see how Donald Trump would respond. Would he reiterate his call for a ban on Muslim immigration—which some have called racist, Islamophobic, and unbecoming of a presidential candidate? Or would he back down and embrace political correctness in order to placate his critics and seem more presidential?

Trump answered my curiosity with his national security speech the Monday following the attack. Let’s look at five key takeaways from his talk.

The list and analysis that follows is good, but really, you could boil it all down to just this: Trump told the simple damned truth. No more, no less. If that helps him polling-wise, great. If it doesn’t, we’re officially beyond saving, and unworthy of the attempt. That, too, is the simple damned truth.
