If Barack Obama gets impeached for nothing else, it ought to be this. He said that the U.S. can absorb another terrorist attack, even if it's like 9/11. Even if it's worse.
Woodward’s book portrays Obama and the White House as barraged by warnings about the threat of terrorist attacks on U.S. soil and confronted with the difficulty in preventing them. During an interview with Woodward in July, the president said, “We can absorb a terrorist attack. We’ll do everything we can to prevent it, but even a 9/11, even the biggest attack ever… we absorbed it and we are stronger.”
I don't care how strong we are, you oaf. I don't want to be a casualty of the next attack. The article continues.
But somehow I can’t escape the feeling that this flippancy comes from Obama’s envy that George W.Bush got a “big event” to make his presidency while all Obama has gotten is a bad economy, massive job loss, and dissatisfaction at every level of society. No big disaster that he could make his nut on. Heck he even wasted the BP Oil spill with weeks of inactivity.
Others agree with me. “This is just another example of the Obama Administration’s flippant attitude towards the War on Terror – a war they refuse to even identify or address. Instead of assuming the United States can just ‘absorb’ another terrorist attack, President Obama should be focused on creating a serious global strategy and fighting the dangerous ideology of Islamic extremism to ensure an act of war like September 11th never happens again,” said David Bossie, executive producer of the film America at Risk.
But Obama doesn't care we get attacked again or not... hmm... maybe he is a closet Muslim.
Let's move on! I don't know how may of my readers follow Gateway Pundit's blog, but there has been a hit piece put out on him by Leftist organization Media Matters. Congratulations, Gateway! You're doing something right!
On a much more serious note, a woman in Virginia is about to be executed for arranging her husband and step-son's murder. I wouldn't mention this, but that nutjob who's running Iran had something to say about it, and I feel that deserves a moment. Here's what he said:
An Iranian news agency reported Tuesday that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad accused the West of launching a "heavy propaganda" campaign against the case of an Iranian woman who had been sentenced to be stoned to death for adultery but failing to react with outrage over the imminent execution of Lewis in Virginia.
Why would we fail to be outraged over Lewis' execution but get worked up over the Iranian woman who's going to be stoned for adultery? Oh, I don't know... how about...
- Lewis had a trial by jury, and I'm sure that the jury actually contained women.
- There was actual evidence of wrongdoing by Lewis.
- We aren't biased based on gender, unlike Islam which believes that a woman's testimony is worth only half of a man's.
Nope. No reason whatever. I don't think that Iranian woman committed adultery. I think she was probably framed, and is going to die for it now, but I don't have all the facts so I shouldn't be making judgements.
The latest post-racial news came in, and it wasn't so post-racial after all. From Gateway Pundit's blog, Two men charged with violent racist attack on white teen:
DNA recently linked Ahmed Mohamed and Jonathan Baquiring to the attack in which a 16-year-old boy was robbed, taunted with racial insults, burned with a lit cigarette and punched repeatedly. Mohamed, 22, and Baquiring, 21, each were charged Monday with first-degree robbery and malicious harassment, the state’s hate-crime statute.When are you going to come out and denounce this, President Obama? We're supposed to be beyond race now, aren't we? But you'll hide, again. You make me sick.
Baquiring was booked into the Seattle Correctional Facility just after 6 p.m. Tuesday, according to the King County Jail Booking Register. His bail is set at $500,000.
Seattle police are still searching for Mohamed.
King County Deputy Prosecutor Samantha Kanner will also seek to have Mohamed held on $500,000 bail once he is arrested, according to charging papers.
The victim, Shane McClellan, said he was walking home around 2 a.m. when two men, whom he described as black and Filipino, asked him for a light.
He said the two men then robbed him and beat him for four hours, whipping him with his own belt while saying things like, “How do you like it, white boy?” and “This is for enslaving our people,” according to the police report.
McClellan, who is white, said the two men also poured Four Loko energy beer on him, burned him with a cigarette and urinated on him, police said.
If this post-racism, someone needs to hit the reset button.
