President Obama’s team has scared the nation over the past week with pronouncements so crazy they leave you breathless. But worse still are the decisions they’ve made, decisions that show America is in danger, and that those charged with protecting us are failing to treat this life-and-death struggle as the war that it really is. First, after a terrorist attack was thwarted only by a detonation malfunction and brave airline passengers, a blissfully-clueless Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano told an incredulous nation that our “system worked.” That comment was so absurd that no further comment is necessary. She should have been forced to resign within hours.

Obama has done a damn site better job protecting the US than Bush did. Bush just made more terrorists with his pompous, arrogant attitudes and policies. Thank God that Obama was wise enough to quit torturing people and to apologize for the fiasco of the last 8 years of Bush.

My personal opinion is that Obama seems like an elected token gesture of a society that has lost it's will to sustain an effort put forth in the face of tragedy, just to go around and act like a goodwill PR rep to the world on the behalf of people who elected him, because those very people prefer talk & passiveness. I'm glad these people who voted for Barak Hussein Obama were not voting during WW1 & 2. When I see him on television the title of President just dos not come to mind.
After the honeymoon on election day and the weeks that followed many citizens are now seeing the true intentions of this administration that in many ways mimick the same exact policies as his predecessor. Which I personally find ironic since 60-some percent of those who voted for him, voted for supposed "change". In addition Obama's vision for the future of America is one that falls within the dangerous patterns of those who in history have made fatal errors in judgement as well as lost wars that decide their country's & nation's future. I say we all have been "short changed" if anything.
Just my opinion & thats not going to change.
