from the Telegraph:
In his weekly radio address yesterday, President Barack Obama patted himself on the back for having “refocused the fight – bringing to a responsible end the war in Iraq, which had nothing to do with the 9/11 attacks”.
He then told people to remember that “our adversaries are those who would attack our country, not our fellow Americans”, before decrying “fear and cynicism” and “partisanship and division” – the code phrases for horrid Republicans used during his 2008 election campaign.
Complacency, faux moralising and partisan shots at Republicans. It was a neat summary of where Obama is going wrong after the Christmas Day debacle when the Nigerian knicker bomber managed to waltz onto a Detroit-bound flight.
For a man who campaigned denouncing the politicisation of national security under President George W Bush, it is worth noting how intensely political Obama’s treatment of what might henceforth be known as Underpantsgate has been.
Where is the gaffable Vice President when you want the truth?
We all remember at the height of the swine flu when the Veep said he wouldn’t let his family travel on a plane or train!?
So, now in the midst of a major breakdown in intelligence with regard to the Christmas Day Bomber’s attempt on NW Flight 253, we here nothing from Joe Biden. Napolitano has spoken, much toward her own demise, and the President is reviewing the intel reports on the 19th hole of the golf course. But no Joe Biden. Where if Joe when we want to know what is “REALLY” going on, whjat is REALLY happening, and no, it is NOT Bush’s fault. That excuse, so overused, is extremely lame!
Come on Joe– give us the REAL STORY!
