Sully speaks

Sully speaks

The most popular man in America, the hero of the Hudson, speaks. And unlike some politicians and celebrities who like to brag about how great they are and all the good things they’ve done, he doesn’t have much to say.

He said was just doing his job.

Hat Tip: Hot Air

    Why does Capt. Sully seem like the antidote to the crass new “vibrancy” of the Obamanation? He’s graciously heroic, non-self aggrandizing, and quietly dignified. No Styrofoam pillars for Sully!

    We need a lot more Americans like him.

  • Texas Truth says:

    He seems like a person I would love to have as a friend and a neighbor and YES, we do need more Americans like him.

  • Instinct says:

    Ditto to the above statements. He is a true gentleman and a true hero

  • I knew he’d act like this. Most noble people don’t want the hype or attention. He’s a true hero. A real man. Someone like him should be in the White House.

  • Slamdunk says:

    I agree, his modest comments are a breath of fresh air.

    Stating that he was just doing his job reminded me of the modesty that John Bradley had when he returned home from WWII. Bradley’s part in the flag raising at Iwo Jima and his humble actions that followed were detailed in his son James’ book Flags of Our Fathers. His dad would say that he was just doing his duty and that the true heroes were the soldiers who never made it home.

    First let me say that your blog is one of the regulars I visit every day, right along with Powerline and Maggie’s Farm.

    Second, airline pilots are a cut above the rest of us. Dedicated to their jobs, they are prepared to die if it would save their charges, us. We must not forget that the scum on September 11 knew this. Why go to the bother of learning how to fly a plane if not aware that those pilots that day would fight tooth and nail.

    Sully, I salute you and your fellow brothers and sisters for getting me where I was going and back again safely!

  • Rob Farrington says:

    What a guy. He has the eternal gratitude of every single person on that plane and their families and friends and in the end, that means far much more than than a million people waving placards and chanting your name, just because you happen to be the current darling of the media.

    He’d probably be a little embarrassed if he read that last paragraph, though. And that’s what makes him such a great human being.

  • Wickedpinto says:

    I like how he seems more concerned about his wife than about himself.

    He’s SORRY! he put her through that, much more than he is interested in his own stature.

    A good man.

  • Wickedpinto says:

    Had a friend, who sorta kinda kicked off a brawl, when his fiance’ was directly assaulted. (some jerky started to paw her breasts)

    All of his friends (us) went out and started to act, but he beat all of us to the situation, and I swear to god, he found the strength to carry two SOB’s off the floor, and pummel them.

    We, his friends showed up a few seconds later, and told him to take her and go home, in case the cops showed up, and we took turns beating the snot out of the guys.

    Later, cuz, my friend was a rather small guy, were joking about the situation, trying to make him feel more comfortable, and he didn’t need it. She was a tough chick herself, and he knew exactly where he was coming from.

    “That’s my WIFE (they weren’t married yet) What else was I supposed to do.”

    And a somber silence filled all of his friends (us) attitudes.

    We were all Marines, except for his fiance’ who became his wife 2 weeks later.


    Isn’t that kinda what makes a hero?
    someone who does what they are supposed to do, in those situations when even then it’s not expected?

  • Steve L. says:

    Politics is all about self-aggrandizement. That’s how you get elected and re-elected. Thats how we ended up with The One.

    If we had more politicians like Sully, we’d be better off. Plus, they’d be surprised how easy it would be to get re-elected by doing the right thing and not talking about it.

  • Chris M-G says:

    This is what it truly means to be an American. You do what you gotta do when you gotta do it, and that’s that.
