    Has anyone noticed that all of a sudden, airport security seems to be Obama's new "crisis"? First we have that scumbag pantybomber from Christmas Day, then the honey bottles raising alarms at an airport, then some guy claiming to be Palestinian causing problems on a flight to Detroit, now some guy walking through security at Newark Airport. Gee, it seems very coincidental that all of a sudden the problems with airport security come all at once.

    Well, on a plus side, Barry finally manned up and took responcibility for something:eek: But I'm still waiting to find out how all this is Bush's fault:rolleyes:

    And as a side note about a previous "crisis," I heard today that the feds might be cancelling previous orders for H1N1 vaccine. So I guess the swine flu wasn't the deadly, earth shattering plauge that we were told it would be:rolleyes:

    A few days ago at Minneapolis/St. Paul there was a bomb alert by the security dogs, evacuation and lock down ensued. Turns out the airport's own bag alerted the dogs.

    The current administration lurches from 'crisis' to 'crisis', only offering an explanation or reprimand when the public opinion has been tasted.

    It is not enough that someone accepts responsibility for these events, someone must begin corrective actions so that a repeat event is not forthcomming.

    Just more incremental control.

    Look for a false flag event this year though, to grab even more control. Probably a successful "terrorist" event on our own soil again.

    The media you watch could be portraying things as a crisis. I travel a lot and I don't see how the Christmas bombing is a crisis. There were some serious lapses in security, similar to those that let 911 happen, and they're being taken seriously. I don't see how it's a crisis.

    I'm sure if you asked the administration, they'd be happy to not have been facing the financial crisis, the mortgage crisis and Iraq when they took office. Their lives would have been much, much, much easier.

    The administration doesn't care what we think, and have illustrated that repeatedly.

    Our fearful leader made the financial crisis WORSE, he made the mortgage crisis WORSE, and he's making the war WORSE, with total lack of indecision. He campaigned on WANTING to be president because HE could SOLVE the problems, yet all he does is whine about "previous admin." PATHETIC.

    The ONLY crisis is that the government is exerting more and more control every week. And THAT should concern everyone.

    That's right, I forgot, Obama had all this woe when he took office. It's all Bush's fault:rolleyes: Once again, you completely missed the point of a post. I wasn't saying that is is a crisis, I was saying that I find it mighty coincidental that after the pantybomber's failed attack, all of a sudden we have all of these lapses in airport security where there were none before. Mighty coincidental. And I don't believe in coincidence. But of course, in your eyes, Obama does no wrong:rolleyes:

    Exactly.

    He did much the same as the last administration in pretty much all three areas. That would be a stronger criticism of how he campaigned I would think. Also, might actually explaining why you think he made those things work be helpful to the thread?

    Ummm, no, because that was not the original context of the thread - to which I did respond in my first post. So, see above for that.

    If you're going to campaign on something - then you'd better DO it. And he hasn't - not anything. He's very effectively allowed us to be spent into oblivion, and he's very effective at NOT taking responsibility for anything.

    No, the last administration is not blameless. I see them as both as being two sides to one coin. Unfortunately, the current president is taking us down a horrific path at breakneck speed, where, if McCain had been elected, we would be going down the same path, just slower.

    Much slower.

    And our president would not have been on a world apology tour. For all his faults, McCain loves his country.

    I have not heard Obamalamadingdong say one positive word about our country. I have not heard him say God Bless America, one time.

    I live my country, does Barry?

    I differ in opinion. The current administration, particularly the (p)resident helped bring about the mortgage and financial crisis from his involvement in defending minorities in 1994 who could not secure a mortgage given traditional guidelines such as simple things like credit scores, income figures, etc... You know, the things that traditionally indicate successful repayment of loans. :rolleyes:

    That action bred the practices of big mortgage banks that turned a turd into caviar and led to the repackaging of mortgages as marketable securities, with banks fully knowing that a percentage of mortgages would default based on the real world statistics. Banks couldn't operate by offering loans at face value to people who couldn't repay them. They HAD to be repackaged and sold to eliminate liabilities. :mad:

    From Americanthinker.com,

    From http://www.americanthinker.com/2008/10/what_really_happened_in_the_mo.html

    HE helped bring about this crisis! HE thrives on crisis! Diversion is ALWAYS your best offensive tactic!... :mad:

    Need I remind you of this little goodie from Rahm Emanuel shortly after election day in November of 2008?... :confused::eek:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1yeA_kHHLow

    Hell, Emanuel sat on the board of Freddie Mac as they were cooking the books between 2000 and 2002. This is the biggest damn scam EVER perpetrated upon the American people. It's amazing in scale, complexity, diversion of blame and impact on the WORLD economy. THEY want US to FAIL! There's no doubt that failure and crisis breeds an opportunity for action.

    Give me a damn break! It's obvious that this student of Alinsky as (p)resident thrives on opportunity to take away liberties on the path of a liberal, Marxist agenda.

    Quoting Alinsky...

    "The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself."

    Don't let facts fog your rose colored glasses. ;)

    NOTE: While I apologize for my harsh use of language, I feel that it's necessary given the subject at hand...

    Great summary of how Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Obozo and the gang coerced Freddy into needing a huge bailout and then blamed Bush.

    It is now coming out that Timmy Turbo Tax Geithner was involved in both urging and covering up the mis-use of TARP monies by AIG. The whole bunch of them stink like a Chicago politican at an ethic investigation hearing in August. Here's the link:

    the only real "crisis" is this moron is the POTUS.

    It's all about diverting the attention from the health care takeover.

    The fed doesn't think anyone should be able to make a profit.
    Car makers, DR.s, banks, farmers, you or me. They think all the excess money belongs to them. They won't be happy until every man, woman, and child in this country is under thier control. Then they can provide a minimum source of keeping us alive. This in turn guarantees their maximum control.

    What better way to do this than forced fed health care?

    I heard the other day on the radio that they were going to allow 1 hour of televised covereage of the debate (After C-span called them on the carpet).

    How gracious.:rolleyes:

    Now they can say, "See? The POTUS didn't lie. The process is transparent".

    If health care passes, we will see a full scale war on banning firearm ownership.

    I'm waiting for them to claim victory in the swine flu debacle.:rolleyes:
    "Due to governments timely intervention, a global pandemic has been averted. This is just one thing that government control of health care can accomplish". And the sheeple will eat it up.:eek::mad:

    We will have a new crisis in 3 weeks.

    I bet if you were sitting next to that pric* you'd be thinking a bit different about it being a crisis. It is usually less of an important event to those who wernt there experiencing what those passengers of that flight went through.

    If we are going to continue the prohibition against profiling, the only way to make the flights truly safe is to do a complete strip search and body cavity search of each passenger, and tow the luggage behind the plane on a VERY long cable.

    On the plus side, I have seen a picture of the full body scanner. The gal being scanned appeared completely nude. That would mean that ticket prices would get cheaper because the airport payroll would decrease; security people would be unpaid volunteers.

    I am VERY glad I quit flying years ago when the airline managed to lose the plane my wife was on, scaring the CRUD out of me to the point that I vowed to never trust my life to an airline again.
    I do hate it though, because I LOVED to fly - -

    To say that this wasnt a crisis is wrong. Had it worked, 300 people would be dead right now and a jet blown to pieces. If your wife or children were sitting next to this guy, it would have been a crisis. Barry was FORCED to respond to this the way he did. Otherwise he would probably still not have said a word. It is almost totally obamas fault. He has weakened this country and its security and has given them confidence. He needs to take the blame. Even if he was forced to do so. His words are nothing more than empty words that mean nothing.

    Security needs to be done by the Airline companies, modeled after the Israelis at EL AL.

    Most Americans wouldn't put up with it, hence, a big cut back on the number of people flying - which might not be a bad thing.

    The FED government should NOT be involved at all.

    They have 3 jobs: (1) Provide for the common defense of the nation (secure our borders). FAIL on that. (2) Coin actual gold and silver money - not paper. FAIL on that. (3) Facilitate interstate commerce (and not get their fingers in it or regulate it to death). FAIL on that!

    The Federal government cannot even do the constitutionally allowed jobs it has been given - but is instead focused on all kinds of control oriented, non-constitutional programs - a big agenda to run YOUR life.
