Skip to comments.Liz Cheney Slams Obama for Terror Attack Quote in Bob Woodward Book
Posted on 09/22/2010 2:13:50 PM PDT by Dubya-M-DeesWent2SyriaStupid!
Cheney, daughter of former vice president Dick Cheney, said the remark "suggests an alarming fatalism on the part of President Obama and his administration."
Here's the full statement:
"Americans expect our President to do everything possible to defend the nation from attack. We expect him to use every tool at his disposal to find, defeat, capture and kill terrorists. We expect him to deter attacks by making clear to our adversaries that an attack on the United States will carry devastating consequences. Instead, President Obama is reported to have said, 'We can absorb a terrorist attack.' This comment suggests an alarming fatalism on the part of President Obama and his administration. Once again the President seems either unwilling or unable to do what it takes to keep this nation safe. The President owes the American people an explanation."

“We can absorb a terrorist attack.”
The quintessential liberal-so long as it’s someone else’s money and someone else’s blood.
He’s entirely detached.
Of course this is from Woodward so it has dubious integrity.
‘We can absorb a terrorist attack
Lets see how well the Democrats absorb the BOOT IN THE REAR from the American People in November! And Barry does in 2012...
I have NO doubts whatsoever that should this great nation once again be attacked by Islamic fundamentalists, this proud leader of our Republic will search HIGH and he will search LOW and he shall leave NO STONE unturned in order to find out....
Who to apologize to for whatever the United States did to deserve said attack. For realz, he might even bow and kiss a ring or two.
For the CIC to say this he must have knowledge of the type of attack he is discussing? What does he know?
For him to make this statement, he must know it is not something like an incurable weaponized disease.
Unless, that is, he is just making it up as he goes along.
No, the Pres__ent owes the American People a resignation IMHO, while Congress owes the American People an Impeachment of this POS.
I cannot believe the mouthpiece for Obama have talking points at all much less this quickly...
The Obama mouthpiece is saying only right wingers are concerned about this. The MSM better not ratchet up talking points for their false savior.
Wow! Good for Liz.
***Of course this is from Woodward so it has dubious integrity.***
Woodward would see nothing wrong with this comment - and why he left it in the manuscript - that’s what makes it authentic.
And we’re building a mosque right near ground zero to prove I’m right.....
LOVE the picture couldn’t have said it better myself!!!!!!!!!!!!
Obama also lied through his teeth. While campaigning he said many times that we are going to “win” in Afghanstan. But once he became president, he only wants to end the war immediately, without victory.
Good for her!
***We can absorb a terrorist attack.***
Rules of Engagement from a CIC!
Unbelievable that a President, a father, a husband would be prepared to absorb an attack rather than take a pre-emptive strike?????
How many dead children?
Oh Liz, I’m beyond wanting an explanation: I want a RESIGNATION!
So why is the POTUS putting up curtains on an EXIT window. (it ain’t a door)
Also, this A-hole says we can absorb a terrorist attack. What makes him think they will stop at 1 (one) attack? they will hit us again and again if they can ... until he says ‘uncle’ and asks us to understand and negotiate terms with them.
p.s. Gov Palin and the range officer need to wear protection.
Exactly the entire statement is just fine to any progressive commiecrat.
Ha! I have seen this photo so many times and never noticed the exit sign above the window? door. A subtle message....
It is good the world knows that if attacked, we will not respond in kind as long as the boy-child is president. At least the terrorist nations can sleep well tonight..
I wish she would have said resignation BUT the MSM would have a field day saying how can she say this over a book quote.
Considering this is obama speaking, the "we" refers to him. He is royalty isn't he? we know his wife is. Obama admits that he can absorb a terrorist attack. Heck, I think he prays for one just to get him out of the white hut. It wold be an easy way out for him.
Then we must consider his background. What he may consider as being a terrorist would be different from what "We The People" would consider. (3 considers - yikes!)
Clearly, the author saw nothing wrong with, or he never would have included such a revealing peak into the brain and heart of the man he admires.
ROFL. They’re in full victim mode with off-set Alinksy’s.
IOW, the spin doctrs are shooting every which way and hoping to find something that sticks.
Obama’s big mouth might play well with the radical left, but even those people aren’t likely to want to withstand an attack on their home turf.
I’d like to see Obama, the scrawny, muslim, closet homo bastard, PERSONALLY absorb a terrorist attack.
That wasn't his whole statement. He also said that we could absorb the worse attacks and used 9/11 as an example, saying we absorbed that attack and it made us stronger. What a jackass we have for a President. I wonder if the families of the victims of 9/11 think that we "absorbed" the attack. This guy should be impeached for this statement alone.
Haven’t we already absorbed enough terrorist attacks?
It really is a shocking word choice. A millionnaire can “absorb” a costly traffic ticket and a straight-A student can “absorb” a single failing grade - in that they might be temporarily upset, but in the grand scheme of things they’re really none the worse for wear. The same cannot and should not be said about 9/11. Our losses that day were permanent, and our way of life was altered in real and lasting ways. That our president doesn’t see that is astonishing.
Any bets on when Hillary will resign as SOS and announce she will save us all and replace Obama?
I luv Liz!
