How can brilliance be reconciled with so many senseless “mistakes”? To name a few:
promoted sexually explicit and inappropriate books to 7th graders, and is a fan of a notorious pedophile.
Is it incompetence, or are these the calculated decisions of a “brilliant” politician who wants to fundamentally transform the United States into his socialist image with the help of “brilliant” political appointees who share his beliefs? Is merely well-intentioned bumbling behind the increasing government control of our lives, destruction of our economy, emasculation of our national security, and redistribution of our wealth?
Each time Obama or one of his political appointees commits a colossal blunder, Obama’s political spinomatics drag out their George W. Bush punching bags, while puzzled critics dismiss the formerly “brilliant” blunderers as being in over their heads. Are they inept or conniving? Either is intolerable.
After allowing another Muslim terrorist to breach airline security, the administration is imposing new “security” regulations that treat innocent travelers like terrorists instead of treating terrorists as unlawful enemy combatants.
Obama should have instructed the FBI to take Abdulmutallab to Guantanamo Bay for questioning and confinement instead of a federal lock-up in Detroit where he’s enjoying his “right to remain silent.”
Presidents from Washington to Roosevelt knew the difference between common criminals and war criminals. Presidents dealt with them accordingly, either by lock-up in a military brigade until the war ended, or execution upon conviction by a military tribunal.
If Napolitano and Obama are serious about finding and fixing “the vulnerabilities in our systems that allowed this breach to happen,” they should repent of their policies that are fundamentally changing the United States to our detriment. Better yet, lead the way by resigning.
It’s the best way to correct fraud in the inducement of a presidential election.
