my words: this editorial was on a sight i have not seen before, its called the Barr Code, it is wrote by BOB BARR , if u are not familiar with bob barr, he was and probably is one of the toughest conservative republicans i have read, he is tough, so when i read this i was rather surprised at what he had to say since he slams the dems or use to as hard as i have ever seen,maybe he is attention hunting i dont know. after his editorial it has a place to express ur remarks, so it does have a blog under his editorial. it has his picture to anyone that does not know him, maybe his pic will jog ur memory. i think he was a congressman from georgia, i think he is no longer in the congress,

Critics of Obama way off base on this one

6:00 am January 7, 2010, by Bob Barr

Yes — the not-so-bright, would-be terrorist from Nigeria got though international and domestic security mechanisms supposed to have stopped him long before the jerk lit his underwear afire before landing in Detroit. And yes — the incident happened during the administration of President Barack Obama. But the sniping at the president by Republicans, including former Vice President Cheney, and by conservative radio and TV commentators, borders on — if not passing into — asinine.

The criticism has included such childishness as blasting Obama for waiting a few days before making a national speech on the incident. For heaven’s sake, the president was briefed on the incident from the moment it occured; he made statements almost immediately indicating his concern and that he was being regularly briefed; he took time to gather the facts and meet with his national security team; and then he appeared publicly to give a rational, measured, but hard-hitting response. And for this, a former vice president criticizes him.

Partisanship truly has pervasively infected our political system when a reasonable, measured, factual, timely and substantive response by a president to a single security incident — the roots of which clearly indicate long-simmering problems that predated his tenure in office — is publicly blasted as irresponsible. In point of fact, those levelling such counterproductive attacks are the ones engaging in irresponsible behavior.


Good For Bob! I totally /completely agree, Good post Rosco~
