What is an administration which hardly ever uses the words “democracy” in any speech regards the Middle East going to say now about Iran?

Obama made himself a joke with his address to Iran after taking office. The Iranian leadership knew this speech wasn't meant for Iran, rather the US and European audience. They also know this was a public full blown statement of US disengagement when dealing with Iran on all issues from their nuclear ambitions to the riots in the streets. Iran knows that Obama is no different than a Euro style blow hard that in 2005 and 2006 spoke of nuclear talks "or else." Or else will never come, because in the end, hey know he's a baffoon in a pretty suit.

Obama’s statement: We are trying to correct the mistakes concerning airline safety made over the last 8 years. I have asked Joe Biden and ACORN to oversee revamping of that system.

I note with interest how the jerk is still attempting to make himself relevant. He thinks another TV appearance ought to do it for him!

Someone could make a fortune selling TV remotes automatically programmed to bypass all of the pleasure-junket-in-chief's appearances through his one term and beyond.

It was Obama’s Homeland Security and State Department that ignored the terrorist father who warned them so it will be interesting how he can pass the blame to Bush on this one.

Janet Napolitano has declared that our homeland security system worked as designed by BHO. This is another way of saying that a terrorist on an American airliner is not a bug in our homeland security system, rather it is a feature.

I like to look at this latest adventure with terrorism as a further definition of what BHO has in mind for us and our beautiful country. It appears that BHO is offering us up as a sacrificial offering to his terrorist friends as part of his policy of appeasement. Osama Ben laden has noted that he will be happy if two million Americans die by his hand—that will even the score for our sins. BHO, a fellow Muslim, is only too happy to oblige as long as it does not interfere with his golf.

Indeed, but he’ll try.

He’s ordered a complete review of the previous admin.’s procedures, blah, blah, blah.

He’s up.

He has not mentioned who did it, just the pablum word “terrorist.”

Obama’s plan? No taking a piss for the last hour of your flight. Instead of fighting the Muslim scum who are doing the bombings, prevent grandma from leaving her seat.
