Skip to comments.Obama Ends Trip Early to Address Security Concerns
Posted on 01/03/2010 5:36:17 PM PST by kristinn
President Obama returns to the White House Sunday night amid new questions about the effectiveness of our fight against terrorism.
The failed terror attempt on a flight to Detroit raised new concerns about the response to the threat. When the President leaves the island paradise of Hawaii, he'll come back to questions about who is to blame for the terrorist near miss on an airliner in Detriot and even more questions about what's being done now to keep the nation safe.
The Christmas Day terror attempt is bringing flashbacks to post 9/11 frustration: warning signs existed, but weren't pieced together.
According to Politico, starting at midnight there will be a new normal for international passengers traveling into the US. All passengers will received tightened random screening and 100 percent of passengers from 14 terrorism-prone countries will be patted down and have their carry-on items searched.
President Obama is cutting his vacation short and will return to Washington Monday, a day earlier than planned. First on his list will be addressing the series of new questions about national security.
According to this AP article, "Obama was scheduled to leave Oahu on Sunday night aboard Air Force One" after spending "every moment of every day thinking about the nation's security.
Not really, that's just talk for the rubes who listened to his Saturday radio address.
Actually, according to the AP, "Obama's holiday vacation in Hawaii was filled with golfing, a luau with friends, and family excursions across the warm island of Oahu."
Wow, he’s coming back a whole day early. /s
Probably see him in a sling tomorrow from all the back patting he’s doing to himself right now...
Early?!! what by three hours?, 30 minutes?
He played golf today and took a party of 19 out for ice cream. Obviously, he is sooooo concerned about what happened.... 10 days ago.
His handlers must have cautioned him to give something to the little people
Early? The underwear bomber attempted his attack about TEN DAYS AGO!!!
What's next from our Wizard? Will we all have to walk through a maize or follow the Yellow Brick Road to get on a plane? ;-)
Who the hell is he going to apoligise to this time? It was just an errant man-made disaster that failed to happen. The overseas contingency operation is going just as planned.
The fact that they have to tell people that he has spent “every moment of every day thinking about the nations security” says it all. They know people think he’s a weakass who cares more about golf and eating shaved ice.
"There are two things that security concerns make Barack Obama want to do: eat shave ice or kiss terrorist butt...
...and he's all out of shave ice!"
a day. a whole day. wow. I already feel safer.
Is he bringing the family back or are we paying for 2 trips home?
And another thing.... A securtity concern.... 300 people almost blown to bits and he is concerned.... Yeah right only about him ALWAYS about him..
Bet he finds a golf course in less than on on week
President Obama is cutting his vacation short and will return to Washington Monday, a day earlier than planned. First on his list will be addressing the series of new questions about national security....
Oh, I’m so easily convinced and they try so hard to convince me.
Well, I want to see many scalps on the wall before I believe them.
Early? Early would’ve been Christmas evening, Jan 3rd is not early.
Coming home on Christmas Day would have been early.
That headline is so damned laughable, it’s silly? This clown finally woke up?????????? Time to sing “bring in the clowns”....
The poor, overworked baby.
