Unlike the unconditional support that George Bush received after 9/11, the Republican Party has predictably used the attempt to criticize the Obama Administration and the President himself. Via Bark Bark Woof Woof...
Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-Mich.) said Sunday that it is fair to blame the Obama administration for the attempted bombing of a Northwest Airlines flight bound for Detroit on Christmas Day.Amazingly, they do this as they rewrite history and claim that George Bush was yet another victim of the Clintons...
Hoekstra, the top Republican on the House Select Intelligence Committee said that the administration has not taken the threat of terrorist threats on the U.S. seriously.
Asked by Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace if it is fair to blame the Obama administration for the attacks, the Michigan Republican replied "Yeah, I think it really is."
So let me get this straight: the largest terrorist attack against the United States occurs 9 months after George Bush takes office and 1 month after he received warnings of said attack...totally not his fault. Man unsuccessfully tries to light his exploding underwear on a flight from Amsterdam and fails...totally President Obama's fault and we need to start firing people.
Meanwhile, Americans are once again scared sh*tless, interrogating brown-skinned men who get sick on flights and who talk too loud and making everyone who flies into this great and terrified country remain in their seats for the last hour because, because...we need to do something, I guess.
But most of all, because the United States is just full of that "Bring it on" spirit where we don't let anyone or anything intimidate us, we need to create a separate line at the airport for Muslims...
And rich, old white women from Palm Beach County.
I have to ask this question: Is it possible for us to be any bigger wimps?
Shouldn't we take a firm stance against terrorists but keep things in perspective, you know, like George Bush?
