MSNBC Anchor Frets: Why Hasnít Obamaís Election Ended Terrorism ?
News Busters ^ | December 1, 2008 | Rich Noyes

File this one under “Deluded Expectations.” During MSNBC’s coverage of the terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India, on Thursday, daytime anchor Alex Witt seemed frustrated that the election of Barack Obama 23 days earlier — and the accompanying “global outpouring of affection, respect, hope” — had not caused an end to terrorist violence.

Talking with correspondent John Yang, who was covering the Obama side of the story, Witt conceded that while “you certainly can’t expect things to change on a dime overnight....There had been such a global outpouring of affection, respect, hope, with the new administration coming in, that precisely these kinds of attacks, it was thought — at least hoped — would be dampered down. But in this case it looks like Barack Obama is getting a preview of things to come.”

The world supposedly “loved” Bill Clinton.

Just when were those terrorists here learning how to fly planes again?

My first thought on hearing about the attack was "Hey, they are supposed to love us Americans now, what's going on?"

But with me it was sarcasm.

This comment is built on a basic lack of understanding of the threat and nature of terrorism. The worst part is this dope is representative of so many more morons who presume to tell us what is going on in the world.

welcome to the real world, kiddies. Terrorists bend to force and strength, not hope and kumbaya.
