This administration has from day one done nothing but cast blame on George Bush and the Bush Administration for any and everything that is going wrong.
Now even as late as yesterday, one full year into the Obama Administration, President Obama comes out and says there is a failure in the system “that has been in place now for years.” He should have already changed it then. He also said, “the information was not effectively dissiminated in order to get him on a no fly list.” Well, I do believe Bush is in Texas, long since having returned to civilian life, so I don’t think he had anything to do with that.
Bush is like the phantom “Marsha” who comes in and messes up everything overnight.
Of course, Janet came out and said the “system worked” and we should be proud, but as soon as it became clear that many warnings were ignored, dots were not connected, balls were dropped, the system suddenly became somebody elses fault. But I have to say that if he keeps working at it, he may become more and more like George Bush, which could only be a massive improvement.
When planes hit the buildings on 9/11 nobody had even conceived in their wildest imagination that this could happen, but now that we know how intent on killing us these people are, there is no excuse for the lax treatment of the issue this administration is giving it.
And even after the Ft. Hood massacre, Obama says we don’t want to jump to conclusions. Jump to conclusions? How much does it take for him to recognize reality.
It’s time Barack Obama stopped acting like a child saying “he did it first, it’s all his fault,” the type manipulation any decent parent would not allow their children to engage in. But then maybe that’s all he’s got.
He’s had plenty of time to change anything he thought was wrong with the system, but in fact the only change he has made is to weaken not strengthen defenses George Bush had in place. And even the best of systems require use of the system, adding information and up-dating it daily. He is trying to release terrorists, not stop them. He is still calling it a “lone extremist” and I am sure we are the laughing stock of al Qaida. And he wants to bring terrorists to New York City to try them as common criminals, giving them constitutional rights that should be for U. S. citizens, not the enemies of our country and our constitution.
And what do we do? The first thing done is this panty bomber gets assigned a lawyer who shuts him up. So instead of trying to get him to talk and tell us if there are other planes in the sky ready to blow up, or trying to thwart any other plans in progress, we start giving him pain medication and planning his skin grafts.
Obama has been all over the world bowing and kowtowing to kings and princes instead of taking care of his number one responsibility, the safety of the American people. But then he considers about half of us to be bigger enemies than the terrorists. Got to watch all these ex-military and tea party protesters, they may become radical or something.
And he can’t even be bothered to come off the golf course, just as he thought it was more important to give a “shout out” before he addressed the Ft. Hood killings, treating it almost as an afterthought. No hearings on that yet.
And he still has about four more days in Hawaii. And to top that off, the vice president is also off shore in the Virgin Islands. You would almost think they are getting off the mainland in case the whole thing blows up.
How does it make you feel to know that the president and the vice president have both left the land mass known as the United States of America and are on tropical islands somewhere during what could be an attack or threat to the country? Doesn’t make me feel too safe. I would say it doesn’t matter, they can just stay where they are forever, but then that would mean that Nancy Pelosi would be in charge. Think about it. Our lives are in the hands of Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and in the alternative, Nancy Pelosi.
God help us. Could we just get a recount? Maybe we could get lucky and John McCain won after all.
UPDATE: Believe it or not, Nancy Pelosi is also in Hawaii.. Can’t make it up.
