I,as I'm sure a lot of people did, sat and listened to the President as he spoke to the attempted bombing incident and quite frankly, I came away with the feeling that in the end it's is basically the same old thing. So let's do a quick recap here. Christmas Day, we had the attempted bombing. The guy was stopped and came off the blame yapping aloud about his ties, etc. However, due to the moronic idea that we give this trash the same rights as citizens, instead of turning him over to the military as we should have, we give him a government paid lawyer, read him his rights and treat him, as Fred Thompson said last night, as some guy who robbed a grocery store.
Our so called president in the mean time is on vacation in Hawaii. We don't hear from him for a few days while his lackeys first claim the system worked, then didn't. Once he gets back, he has a review after which he takes "full responsibility for the cock up and will hold those who failed in their job responsible" after which he then explains the failures but refuses to hold the people responsible accountable! In effect, typical BS from this quivering mass of jelly in the White House. Appear tough to pacify the masses, then do nothing!
I did notice he finally called these wackos terrorists and in fact said we were at war. Would have been nice if he showed some emotion or anything when he said it. Pandering to the masses doesn't really come thru to good if your convictions lay somewhere else and in this case, it really shows.
National Counterterrorism Center Director Michael Leiter was skiing with his son. he couldn't be bothered to go back to Washington and James Brennan and the lackeys attack anyone for even suggesting the man should have left his vacation for what is a 24/7 job when needed.
It has come out that the bomber had met with one of the most radical clerics aligned with Al-Qaeda. We already know that there was more then enough information on this guy (as Fred Thomson said last night, the guy had, for all practical purposes, "I am a terrorist" stamped on his forehead) and the ball was dropped. Of course, the CIA will in the end be blamed the most. After all, the President first stripped them of their power turning it over to another governmant boondoggle, The National Counterterrorism Center. On top of that, the administration feels it's much more importatant to prosecute anyone who did their jobs, CIA or otherwise! After all, the CIA and the military are, in their Socialist eyes, enemies of the state. Belligerant statement? YES! But how else is one supposed to think?
BTW: Can someone please explain to me what an idiot like Janet Napalitano is doing in a position that she is not remotely qualified for (other then the fact that she, like most of this guys advisor is a hard left leaning Socialist)? As if her ineptness isn't enough, yesterday took the cake! She stated that she was shocked that Al-Qaeda had gone operational in Yemen and would use a single person for a bombing effort or something basically to that effect! My God! What planet is this looney tune living on? And the President continues to back this moron!? And we wonder what's wrong with our country?
I and others have been ranting about this very issue for some time now. Any fool knows the radical Muslims, be they Al-Qaeda, Hamas, or whomever are tickled pink to see that in fact they were correct. The U.S. is weak. They will step back from any commitment to fighting them. As such they just had to wait us out. And sure enough, that's exactly what is happening. The radical leftists in the administration are so blinded by ideology, they turn their heads away from the simple fact that these people want anyone like us dead! So we apologize instead for America's always being wrong. We try to understand their hatred for us! Bull! The only way to keep someone of a radical ilk from killing you is to kill them first! You cannont talk to or reason with a radical of any kind, blinded as they are to their way of thinking. But of course, the administration knows that! "We The People" cannot reason with the radicals inhabiting Washington either! Like the radical Muslims, they refuse to listen! They are the only ones who are correct. They are good. We on the other hand are haters or racists and to stupid to realize we are wrong! Because of this, we are in deep danger.
One more thing here. The health care bill is being reconciled. All the promises of no new taxes, revenue neutural, etc. aside, one question. When do the lies stop.
This from a Fox stroy (also on other sites)
"In a meeting at the White House, Obama expressed his preference for the insurance tax contained in the Senate's health overhaul bill, but largely opposed by House Democrats and organized labor, Democratic aides said. The aides spoke on condition of anonymity because the meeting was private.
House Democrats want to raise income taxes on high-income individuals instead and are reluctant to abandon that approach, while recognizing that they will likely have to bend on that and other issues so that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., can maintain his fragile 60-vote majority support for the bill.
Obama has defended the tax as a way to drive down health costs.
"I'm on record as saying that taxing Cadillac plans that don't make people healthier but just take more money out of their pockets because they're paying more for insurance than they need to, that's actually a good idea, and that helps bend the cost curve," the president said in an interview with National Public Radio just before Christmas. "That helps to reduce the cost of health care over the long term. I think that's a smart thing to do."
In the end the House likely will have to accept the insurance plan tax at some level but it might not happen without a fight."
Once again, more take from those who succeed Socialism! As stated before, this clown has ensured the bankruptcy of our children and grand children. The thing is a bad bill and the deficit it will create in unsustainable! And of course, besides the lower tax and cost promise, don't forget everything is being hidden from the American Public! Again, another lie from this imbicile. What is so hard to understand here? The man is a Socialist! I get taken to task for calling him a name, but it is a fact. His own actions, his own words, and his complete disdain for the ideals and principles this country was founded on indict him! He has surrounded himself with fellow hard left Socialists! Again, how can we not see this?
Our economy is a shambles. Everything these people are doing is only making it worse. If they don't pass cap and trade, they'll have the EPA regulate companies to death. BTW: A huge rise in jobless claims last month shocked analysts! Who in the hell are these people? The holidays are over and people, as always are now being laid off form seasonal jobs! And the analysts are shocked?! More jobs are going to be lost as companies are unable to cope with the onerous regulations and taxes coming their way. As always with this administration, they think we are to dumb to see reality! When is it going to stop?
