“Look, I want ISIS defeated. I’m thrilled that the U.S., Russia and France — and I hope all of Europe and I hope all of the Arab states will come along — are doing what they’re doing. But at the end of the day, we’ve got to offer a different model. And those of us who are too old to serve or otherwise engaged in the military, our job is to make something good happen.”

Former U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Howell) looks tanned and rested since leaving office in January.
Last month, the former House Intelligence Committee chair headlined the Michigan Association of Broadcasters’ conference in Bellaire. While pitching his new radio show, “Something to Think About,” which he said airs on more than 160 stations nationwide, Rogers reiterated that he feels it’s a “bigger platform” than being in Congress.
