    BLACKBURN asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.) Mrs. BLACKBURN. Mr. Speaker, my colleagues have come to the floor and we do remember Pearl Harbor and we remember this day. And we also remember how our relatives who talked about this who served, how they told these stories. I think we are blessed to have that insight into history. It is such a difference when you compare what the President did last night--13 minutes is what he had to say about terrorism and the war on terror.

    I have been reading emails from some of my constituents. Their words are this: He is tone deaf, he is in denial, he is the fearful leader-- the fearful leader. They want to see leadership that will communicate the message: we are going to find you, we are going to destroy you, and we are going to destroy your networks. That is not what the President has been saying.

    My constituents see him as being very timid and very hesitant in this fight. They feel like that he just does not get it. They have a lot of questions that they are asking me: Why is it that he is so timid in fighting terrorism? Could it be that he does not possess the courage to call them out? That he thinks America is to blame for this? Or he doesn't want to offend our enemies? They have declared war on us. It is time for us to confront our enemy.
