Why Bob Woodward’s New book is a stunner and why John Bolton went off (Video)
Gateway Pundit ^ | 9-22-10 | John Schulenburg

Wow, so Bob Woodward’s new book is making a lot of headlines to today and why shouldn’t it? It’s an amazing view into the White House and well, frankly scared the bejeesus out of me just knowing that this joker is in charge of our country and military.

Where to begin?

It starts with the front page story from the Washington Post which talks about Bob Woodward’s new book, Obama’s Wars. The book quite literally is a stark reality check for the American people on who their Commander-in-Chief is and how he thinks.

The first bombshell that people are talking about is this comment directly from Obama to Woodward:

“We can absorb a terrorist attack. We’ll do everything we can to prevent it, but even a 9/11, even the biggest attack ever . . . we absorbed it and we are stronger.”

Nice…but it gets worse…

Check this. This might explain why Director of Intel Blair was run out of his position. He told the truth and Rahm accused him of scapegoating the issue!

During a daily intelligence briefing in May 2009, Mr. Blair [former Director of Intelligence] warned the president that radicals with American and European passports were being trained in Pakistan to attack their homelands. Mr. Emanuel afterward chastised him, saying, “You’re just trying to put this on us so it’s not your fault.” Mr. Blair also skirmished with Mr. Brennan about a report on the failed airliner terrorist attack on Dec. 25. Mr. Obama later forced Mr. Blair out.

I was going to make a statement about how if Obama’s kids were on one of the airliners on 9/11, he might feel differently about terrorism. Then I realized how pathetic it is to even make that statement. It’s sickening that we have a president that can’t fathom the personal impact on people’s lives terrorism makes. He’s cold, unfeeling and empty.

Happen to watch the John Bolten interview on Fox News. IMHO, POTUS Barack Hussein Obama should be forced by his “traitor” Democrat party to resign immediately or, the Democrat Party should impeach him immediately. He has put politics first over the safety and protection of our military forces. The POTUS is nothing more then a traitor as is his Democrat political party!!!

and the great thing about this book?
1. it has oblabos name and picture on the front. some of his supporters who are just starting to doubt, may buy the book and learn something that opens their eyes completely.
2. woodward did 3 or 4 books on bush and the last ones were not flattering. the media hyped those books and now oblabo supporters will think this is a flattering biography of their darling (anyone who trashes bush must love oblabo, right?). they will get a big surprise when they begin reading and find out what a real turd their messiah is.

Obammuism’s bottom line: can’t have no stink’n reality checks here, if it means we get blamed.

They’re setting up the same type of events which occurred within the Clinton Administration, prior to 9/11, which just managed to kick down the road the many rewards of avoidance and their next political scam. Just as the fraudulent wall of intelligence, limiting Able-Danger separating substantive data from those who could use it; this is once again nothing more than the enemies of America making sure they are not held responsible for their actions.

Sad to say, Obama would sacrifice his kids for his twisted Marxist view of the world. Believe me, he feels no pain at all for the millions of Americans he has put out of work or put in harms way in our great military.. if you think if his offspring stood in his way politically he would run right over them in a New York minute!!! He and his wife care about no one but themselves and their America hating, Marxist ilk. He is color blind. If you are an American, he hates you regardless of skin color, religion, etc. He is truly an equal opportunity hater of common American folk!!! He is cold, evil, without feeling or understanding!!!

The democrat talking point is and will continue to be this: it is too early to see the benefits of our president and administration, give us time.

Haven’t read the book. Let me see... he’s a radical, militant, racist, American hating communist? Kinda figured that one out in 2006. Didn’t have to do a lot of research either. Of course, I’m not highly educated so it was fairly easy for me to decipher.

According to the quotations that have been reported, Obama’s policy in Afghanistan was driven by the need to maintain his support in the Democratic Party. In his opinion, the rest of the country does not matter. He’s President of those who supported him.

He’s looking for a new Watergate. I hope he finds one because if we don’t get this self-centered nut out of the White House he’s going to just give America away.

It will take dimrats to turn on obama to force him from office. But the dimrat party has taken the same side as the jihadi muslims. The dims loyalty is to their party first and foremost. Look at their actions, ignore their words. We are facing a seriously evil force, an enemy within who is in power.

Bob Woodward’s new book exposes the shocking revelation that Obama feels that we, the United States “can absorb another terrorist attack.”

Fascinating...

This explains why he let the “underwear bomber” lawyer-up in the criminal justice system rather than having our intelligence agencies hold him and interrogate him. It also reveals his underlying strategy of withdrawing from our current battle with terrorism, and why his A.G. won’t even use the term “War on Terror.”

Well, I say the the USA has already absorbed a terrorist attack, within the White House, on Wall Street and Main Street, and to the Democrat party. That terrorist is Barack Hussein Obama.
