I just got the chance to listen to the entire speech given by the young President yesterday and I must say I was stunned. Either Mr. Obama is completely oblivious to the reality of the war on terror, or he is so convinced in his approach to fighting terror that he refuses to even recognize the obvious.
For your examination, here are two segments of the President’s address. The first is stunning in its ignorance or arrogance. So much so that I suspect even the most ardent Obama supporter is slightly shocked. The President doesn’t just use the word “alleged” in describing the incident, but he can’t seem to use the word terrorist. Rather he uses “suspect”. What is this, an episode of CSI?
This bite thought is why I titled this post oblivious. He cannot use the word terrorists to describe, ummm, terrorists, instead calling the terrorists “those who would do us harm.” Finally, he calls Abdul Farouk Umar Abdulmutallab an isolated extremist. Not exactly.
Contrast that with Joe Lieberman on Fox News Sunday.
I am growing increasingly concerned that this group in the White House is incompetent to protect and keep the Republic safe. I worry.
PS: You’re the President. Wear a tie please.
