11 Minutes – That’s all the time it took Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse to teach a national high school civics class
One of the concepts I tried to teach my clients (and my family) is reuse.
- If some program, process, technique or sweater has worked well in the past – then we can save a lot of money, time and energy by reusing that success rather than scrapping it just for the sake of saying we are doing something “new”.
Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse’s opening remarks at the Kavanaugh confirmation hearings are a perfect example of that concept. I could not make the case better than the good Senator which is why I thought you might enjoy hearing his remarks in their entirety.
- While the remarks were carried live on all the major news channels – this particular clip comes to you courtesy of Fox News.
- If you have kids in the house, especially those who will soon take their high school civics/exit exam, this would be a good time to bring them to the radio.
- The Senator holds a Ph.D. in History from Yale University.
- He served as an Undersecretary of Education in the Bush Administration
- And then taught at the University of Texas School of Public Policy before returning to Nebraska as the youngest ever President at Midlands University.
- He was elected to the Senate in 2012
