Dear Pres BO: When are you going to call him a "terrorist"?
Pres BO went out Tuesday and decided to show a little outrage:
"Obama’s appearance comes amid growing criticism that he had not responded quickly and forcefully enough to the incident.
It was three days before he made any public remarks and they came after Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano had been heavily criticized for saying “the system worked.” (Politico)
Unfortunately, Pres BO refuses to call this young man a terrorist. What does it take? Didn't he try to kill 300 people on a plane to Detroit?
P.S. I found this blog post very interesting: Suddenly, Obama’s not so fluent any more
"Whatever the cause, I imagine it must be quite frightening to Obama (rather like losing your turns).
He’s accustomed to having the magic touch when he speaks, and now he’s become self-conscious, watching every word.
Many have remarked on his changed affect, as well; we hear descriptions such as “passionless” and “not properly engaged.”
I agree with the blogger, a lady who used to be a Dem. She is picking up on something that so many have noticed about Pres BO's speech.
This is not the same guy who tantalized people during the election.
P.S. #2 I found this one very interesting too: Obama’s Missed Moment By Jennifer Rubin:
"After a year in office, Obama either doesn’t grasp the nature of the war we are in (and the necessity to show our resolve to our enemies) or he lacks the ability to project the qualities that Americans look for in a commander in chief.
Either way, it is deeply troubling and a reminder of the risk the country takes when it elects someone with no national-security, no military, and no executive-leadership experience."
Again, this is not the same guy that we saw in 2008!
What we see now is a guy who is not confident and afraid to say the wrong thing!
