Obama: Hey, Sorry I've Been Completely Out of Touch on This Terrorism Thing

Last week The New York Times caused controversy after deleting an entire section out of a story revealing President Obama wasn't aware of the growing terrorism concern in America because he

wasn't watching enough cable television.
"In his meeting with the columnists, Mr. Obama indicated that he did not see enough cable television to fully appreciate the anxiety after the attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, and made clear that he plans to step up his public arguments."

Before taking off for a two week vacation in Hawaii, Obama admitted in the same meeting with columnists to being slow to respond to the terrorism threat and worries of Americans here at home.

But Mr. Obama said he now realizes that he was slow to respond to public fears after terrorist attacks in Paris and California, acknowledging that his low-key approach led Americans to worry that he was not doing enough to keep the country safe. He has engaged in a blitz of public events lately to try to convince them otherwise, including a visit on Thursday to the National Counterterrorism Center.

Meanwhile, terrorism is the number one concern of Americans according to polling from a variety of sources.
