Obama Views Terrorism as a Police Matter

I am dumbfounded to hear the Obama Administration proudly claim that the system worked as a terrorist bomb plot was foiled on a Detroit-bound flight from Amsterdam. Well, it is quite jolting and inconsiderate to inform everybody that “the system worked” was defined as a private citizen on that plane able to subdue the terrorist from igniting the explosives.

The Obama Administration has back peddled its initial statement and said the whole incident was as catastrophe. But he added that such admission was the fault by the previous president (George W. Bush). I can’t believe the gumption of this current president and not having the “balls” to take any form of responsibility. Obama has been president for 1 year and he still blames the past president for his woes. I can only recall we haven’t had a serious terrorist plot that came close to fruition after 9/11, but I digress.

Obama doesn’t care to hear such nonsense regarding to terrorism. In his eyes, there is not such thing. It is an overseas contingency matter that can be done at the local level with the police. In other words, it is a police matter. This is how it was define by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. She had the gall to say that the matter in Detroit was taken out of context and made political with the near disaster. She has no business running Homeland Security because like Obama, she has no experience dealing with terrorism. In fact, she is the bozo who said that the system worked in preventing the terrorist bomb attack on the Detroit-bound flight from Amsterdam.

I am disturbed that it took couple days for Obama to come forth to give his thoughts on the matter, but if it was anything regarding to healthcare, that Tele-prompter would be ready to feed any lines (lies) to the American public. Ever since Obama took the eye off the ball, it seems easier for a terrorist to sneak their way inside a plane. First off, this radical Muslim terrorist was able to sneak onto the plan with the explosives. Secondly, the father of the terrorist went to the embassy expressing concerns that his son is a radical Muslim, but that didn’t stop his terrorist son to get on the plane. Thirdly, I am surprise that no one caught notice that the ticket was purchase in cash for an international flight and he didn’t have any luggage. Finally, it took a fellow passenger to disarm the terrorist. Where was the security of the arm pilots, personnel, or undercover Marshalls on board that plane?

I can vividly remember what Joe Biden said, “he (Obama) is young, relatively inexperienced running mate would, if elected, face international crisis early on from those eager "to test the mettle of this guy." Well, it is only one year as president and I think Obama had enough.

Democrat Switching Toward the Republican Party

What a big difference a year could do to the atmosphere of the political arena. One year ago, we had Republicans dropping like a hot potato. Every GOP running for re-election in 2008 ran away and denigrated George W. Bush. These idiot Republicans tried to keep an arms length distance from the former president.

But since Obama took center stage, it is Democrats turn to flee from the “messiah.” The poll numbers are showing a move toward Republican candidates in the 2010 mid-term election. In the latest Generic Congressional Ballot, there is a big eight-point swing favoring Republican over Democrats. This is very significant because Republicans have been lagging behind for many years. Well, I’m not too surprise by the numbers. I was expecting this. From day one, I have always said that Obama will demonstrate his liberal ideology when he became president. I didn’t fall for the sweet talking used-car salesman and his blatant lies. I understand it takes action to finally realize the mistake by those who voted for Obama’s hope and change motto. Well, I told you so.

The latest poll by Rasmussen Report showed that 44 percent would vote for their district’s Republican congressional candidate; compare that to the 36 percent who would support their Democrat opponent. This is the start of the fall of the liberal stupidity in Washington D.C. This is why the Democrats are frantic to pass any stupid legislation in order it will be implemented and difficult to reverse. This is why a bill like universal healthcare, which hasn’t been read by members of congress or explain how it will be funded, is so important for Democrats to pass.

Perhaps it explains why Democrat Congressman Parker Griffith (Al) decided yesterday to switch parties. How about that? A Democrat turned Republican. Parker Griffith is a blue dog Democrat with very conservative values. It is certain the congressman’s switch is all political, but do you blame him? Besides switching parties, there are many Democrats deciding to retire from the political arena.

This is too good to be true! Somebody pinch me!

4 Democrats Retiring from the House and Many More to Follow

What a major turnaround we are witnessing during these disturbing political times. Not too long ago, I can recall how the American public viewed Republican as the “boogie-man.” Ever since Obama took office, the American people are now realizing what a mistake to put Democrats in power. We have seen it in cycles. It happens all the time. For the past 5 years, it was the Republicans getting the “shaft.” Now, it is evident that Democrats are getting the same treatment. I like to call it “Karma.”

With Republicans taking the governors seat in New Jersey and Virginia, two well known states whose residents voted for Obama, we are seeing a similar scenario with the 2010 mid-term elections for the House seats. With Republicans plagued by retirement of its members in the last elections, Democrats are feeling the same pinch like the Republican did in 2008.

As of today, there are 4 Democrats in the House of Representatives who will not run for re-election in 2010. This could be a trend. We may see an influx of retirements in the upcoming months. Whether spending more time with family and friends or being flustered with politics, I can confidently say that their reason for their retirement had to do with Obama and his failing approval ratings. No longer is it feasible to use the momentum that Obama brought during his campaign march to the White House. Every Democrat is running away and putting distance between the president and themselves. It is the same thing that happened to George W. Bush. But with Bush, it was done through misrepresentation and stretching the truth via the mainstream media. With Obama, it is due to poor domestic and foreign policy, and the lack of experience he once said to be a minor issue. I call it an ego trip for an arrogant man, who thinks he is above the law.

In fact, a recent poll number showed that 37% of the American people wouldn’t mind if George W. Bush came back in power. Relatively small percent, but that is considered significant when compared to 47% approval rating with Obama. The Democrats are beginning to see the writing on the wall. Instead of choosing to fight in a difficult political environment, they are taking a pass and opting for retirement. That is good news for the GOP.

Obama Admits Spending to Get Out of Recession

Many friends, who are Obama supports, wanted me to give this president some slack. Well, I have given him close to a year and what have we seen? Practically, NOTHING! In a recent Gallup Poll, Obama’s job approval rating fell to 47 percent. It is the lowest ever recorded for any president at this point of his term. The last two presidents fared better than Obama. Bill Clinton received a 52 percent approval rating and George W. Bush received an 86 percent approval rating after one year in office.

The liberals would give lame excuses saying that the president does not “put a lot of stock” in these surveys. I would say they are foolish and idiotic. Of course, the president adheres to the polls numbers because it gives a very rough estimation how the American people view the job performance of this president.

I believe it is hopeless for Obama to turn around his failing poll numbers. Currently, Obama understands that jobs creation is his ticket to get back on the favor of the American people. But when Obama says that we need to spend our way out of this recession to get more American back to work, I personally think Obama is digging himself in a deep hole.

The problem Obama faces is his continual dependence on the Chinese and foreign countries to bail us out. This massive stimulus proposed to spend on highways, bridges, and infrastructure must come from somewhere. If it is not from tax cuts, which allow companies to hire new employees and grow, I wonder where this president is planning to get the money. Everything comes with consequences and crippling the dollar is one step to destroying the prominence of this great nation. On the other hand, probably this is what Obama intends to do.
