The attack that failed due to a terrorist being a moron, is not the “system worked” that I would expect. The system didn’t work. The President is a putz, his appointed moron to DHS is absent from reality, and the press, they’re continuing to suck Obama’s ass.
When do we start the proceedings for impeachment? He is failing at his number one responsibility. Protect and defend the United States of America. FAIL.
At the very least the DHS Secretary needs to be fired.
Oh, I’m So Relieved; Obama “Likely” To Speak About Christmas Day Attack
By Gabriel Malor
All part of the Left’s unserious response to terrorism; the President will get around to doing his job just as soon has he finishes his waffles:
White House sources tell ABC News the President will “likely” speak publicly about the alleged attempted terrorist attack on Flight 253 in the next few days. The President is on vacation in his native state of Hawaii – he has received regularly briefings on the incident and called for increased security for air travel, along with a full review of the terror watch list procedures. The White House is adamant that the President is actively engaged on the incident behind the scenes, receiving regular updates as information comes in. While on vacation Mr. Obama does not keep a public schedule, but he did spend much of the day golfing on Saturday and is spending Sunday with his family at the beach.
The President’s disengagement from one of his primary duties—to defend the United States—is so galling because Obama so clearly knows what he is supposed to be doing, but doesn’t want to be bothered. That’s why every single unnamed White House source for the past three days has “stressed that the President is very concerned about what is going on in the world and is actively engaged at all levels.”
The System? B+
As Gabe notes below, “The system worked” is such a fire-breathingly insane and stupid statement to make Napolitano should resign at once. Either she believes this rot, and she’s too stupid and too content with pure luck being America’s defense to keep her job, or she’s the most viciously mendacious liar in the history of history.
And sure, I have no doubts this pap is being pushed by Axelrod, Emmanuel, and of course Captain Wonderful, who didn’t feel like taking a 7 am call about what could have been a coordinated terrorist attack requiring his order for the immediate grounding of all flights.
Death Star Thermal Exhaust Port Defensive Grid? The system worked.
