Skip to comments.Soft on terror? Not this president (WP goes to bat for the Shave-Ice eating wimp of a President)

THERE IS, it seems evident, more than enough blame to go around in the botched handling of the botched Christmas bombing. Not for some Republicans. With former vice president Richard B. Cheney in the lead, they have embarked on an ugly course to use the incident to inflict maximum political damage on President Obama. That's bad enough, but their scurrilous line of attack is even worse. The claim that the incident shows the president's fecklessness in the war on terror is unfounded -- no matter how often it is repeated.
These critics have set up a straw Obama, a weak and naive leader who allegedly takes terrorism lightly, thinks that playing nicely with terrorists will make them stop, and fails to understand the threat that the United States faces from violent extremists. Mr. Cheney said that the incident had made "clear once again that President Obama is trying to pretend we are not at war."

I can’t read the rest of it. Let me guess, the botched response of the year (”..isolated extremist”) never gets mentioned? I have so much hatred for the press. They are trying to destroy us conservatives a little at a time.
The Washington Post should put a picture of kneepads on their masthead of their paper.
What a bunch of (fill in the blanks)
a straw Obama, a weak and naive leader who allegedly takes terrorism lightly, thinks that playing nicely with terrorists will make them stop, and fails to understand the threat that the United States faces from violent extremists.
That’s how I see it.
Uh huh. I’m awaiting a citation of a similar posting from this same source about Bush, who was excoriated for suggesting that it even was a war. Double standard? You better believe it.
...coming from the same bunch of idiot libs who blamed Bush for everything? I find this ironic.....
By gosh, I think they have nailed it.
Maybe if the Washington Post hadn't put the stupid jerk on a pedestal so often it wouldn't be as easy to make him into straw.
The 'messiah' has been unclothed.
Double standards? Jurinalists? Say it ain’t so.
Obama siccing the Justice Department on CIA officers isn’t mentioned either.
And here I thought the MSM was on a deathwatch....
Terror? I thought it was adversity.
They can say whatever they want it makes them look like fools. Americans wre home for the holdays and saw him stay on vacation while this went on!Even my liberal sister wondered why he was still on vacation?
Ever notice that when Republicans are dead on and Democrats are nakedly at fault that the corrupt MSM always frames the issue in terms of Republicans taking crass political advantage of circumstances? Ever notice that? I have. Likewise, the Democrat’s media allies never seem to get around to writing about the raw and brutal political tricks of their Party.
The MSM is thoroughly corrupt and dishonest.
If they feel compelled to defend him, they know he’s failing.
This is Jimmy Carter Part II.
Another Harvard-educated fool.
