Just checking in quickly to wish all readers and commenters a very happy new year and to remind everyone – as if any of us needed the reminder – that we’ve got a lot of work to do next year in continuing to expose the incompetency and the extreme left wing tendencies of the Obama administration. The way the polling is going at both the state and national levels, Republicans will have some prime time opportunities to make up for some significant ground they’ve lost over the last two major election cycles. My concern is that if they make it up, will they just go back to the way they were under the Bush admin, where many Republicans in both the House and Senate helped themselves to a lot of pork and other wasteful spending that was completely anti-fiscal responsibility.
Predictably, when they can’t defend our celebrity President’s decisions and actions, the left turns to the “blame Bush” game in response – and why shouldn’t they, when the President himself and his administration have set the example that nothing bad that happens is his fault? So far, most on the left haven’t been able to put up a solid, sensible defense of this administration’s poor handling of the attempted terror attack on the Detroit-bound flight 253, so their response is to … ridicule the Republican response to dear leader’s incompetency, and to point out alleged “double standards” when it comes to examining the GOP’s reactions to the aftermath of the attempted attack last week versus their response post-Richard Reid’s attempted attack back in December of 2001. Anything to deflect.
Got a couple of appointments today, but when I get back I am going to tackle the comparisons that are being made – mostly by the excuse-making left – between shoe bomber Richard Reid’s attempted terror attack back in December 2001 and Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab’s attempted terror attack on Detroit-bound Flight 253 last week. As usual, the “similarities” being “pointed out” are mostly devoid of context and, of course, factual accuracy.
