Skip to comments.Crises to greet Obama's return to Washington (HE'S BACK)
Posted on 01/04/2010 9:56:56 AM PST by IbJensen
US President Barack Obama wrapped up his Hawaiian vacation and headed back Monday to Washington, where he will have to grapple with resurgent fears of a terror attack and Iran's nuclear defiance.
Air Force One left the islands with the US first family at about 0810 GMT.
Challenges facing the White House in 2009 -- including the worst economic meltdown in 70 years -- look likely to be trumped by the building crises threatening to rage through 2010.
Hyper-partisan politics will get even more nasty, with Republicans targeting gains in mid-term elections in November -- which normally wound first-term presidents -- and Democrats defending their grip on Congress at all costs.
The thwarted Christmas Day attack on a US airliner reintroduced the terrifying and polarizing specter of terrorism into American life, just as a wary normality was easing memories of the September 11 attacks in 2001.
Criticism of Obama's handling of the attack is likely to complicate his task of enacting an ambitious domestic program. He will attempt to address what he says are "systemic" US failures over the episode by meeting spy chiefs Tuesday.
Obama's plan to close the Guantanamo Bay camp, already set to miss a one-year deadline, looks in deep peril: nearly half of the remaining 198 detainees are from Yemen, where the Christmas Day attack was planned.
Yemen, with its building Al-Qaeda presence is a widening front for US forces in the global anti-terror struggle, along with Pakistan and Afghanistan.

After nearly a year in power, Obama is grayer, drained by Washington's acrimony and no longer an untested source of hope for millions...
This phony wanker was never a 'source of hope' for this American. He is a detestable poor excuse for a human being. Everything he touches turns to sh-t!
You’re just saying that because he’s half black. Now, get back to work you tax-paying SERF! Don’t you know he’ll need some spending money to go on vacation AGAIN this weekend?
crises caused by Obama still there upon his return to Washington.
Well, the Presidency is not easy. It’s not fun and games and vacations and attention and all about them. It is a serious job and one that needs to be treated as such by a grown up.
All tasks this arrogant snot is not up to accomplishing.
His main job is to defend his nation and preserve our constitution and he has FAILED AT BOTH.
I mean it...he has FAILED.
Gray hair can be faked. So can intelligence . But lack of ability to govern cannot be faked and it is leaking out all over our nation!
This doobersnickel has brought dirtbag characters to surround himself with as advisers and administration leaders, lol, well.....his inability to lead just gets worse as time goes by, not better, a scary prospect.
He has no moral code-this pusher of partial birth abortion. ( as state senator in Illinois )
He has no strength of character, only words. He is obviously afraid to make a move that is best for his nation and instead goes for the safety of pleasing the sorriest group of filth this nation has to offer, the American hating left wing communists.
He is truly nasty.
And worse, he is LAZY and feels SORRY for himself that he has to work hard. Even tho an ENTIRE nation voted to give him the highest office we can offer.
He needs to be spanked and put to bed with our precious constitution under his pillow and the Ten Commandments resting upon his heart.
What a loser this man is, and what a freak show our nation has had to endure.
Can you IMAGINE what the PRESS CORP-the ABC, CBS, MSNBC, NBC, PBS and CNN crowd would have DONE to GW if the:
And I could go on....the astounding prop up the those press organizations have given this pompous creep has hurt our nation so deeply...one can understand how Hitler's press leader, Goebbels, was able to fool his nation, we have it going on right now with our liberal press REFUSING to critic this dirtbag president simply because he has the word democrat behind his name...soetero or obama or WHATEVER that is.
Has Obama done anything yet, other than read someone else’s speeches to a TV audience?
Seems like he’s back from vacation every week.
