Incase you've all been distracted due to the holidays, this guy did everything but take out an ad in the NYT to announce what he was going to do. First his father went to the American embassy in Nigeria and expressed serious concern that his son had become a radicalized muslim and was communicating with al quieda. Huge red flag that in a post 9/11 world should have skyrocketed him onto the no fly list. Next he bought his ONE WAY ticket LAST MINUTE minute with CASH. Three more huge red flags, any one of which should have raised an alarm. He had NO PASSPORT! Hello?
No comparison to Richard Reid which as someone correctly pointed out was just after 9/11 when we were just learning how to protect ourselves from these types of attacks.
I love it when faced with a glaring failure libs love to bring up some perceived Bush failure. OK, Bush didn't handle everything perfectly. How does that mitigate this horrendous series of failures of our secuirty in 12/09?
TSA head Yanche? If this was such an important position, why did it take Obama until September to even nominate someone? What's holding up his confirmation? Republicans and others with common sense don't want the TSA to be unionized. Why. First of all the TSA needs to be able to respond quickly to changes in terroists methods. With union rules on what their members can and can't do, will and won't due, they would be hobbled. Also unions in this country are nothing more than an arm of the democrat party. Why would rebublicans be expected to embrace policitizing the TSA? All Mr. Southers has to do is answer the question, "does he support unionizing the TSA?" So far he has refused.
And the health bill? Not held up by republicans. They weren't even included in the process. It's been the split within the dem party that has held up that nightmare. Blue dogs who know they aren't going to be re-elected in 2010 for their support of it. Obama, Pelosi and Reid are so hell bent on bringing socialized medicine to this country that they are willing to sacifice dems in congress in 2010 to do it.
