“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.
Wow! Good for Liz.
And we’re building a mosque right near ground zero to prove I’m right.....
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!
Oh Liz, I’m beyond wanting an explanation: I want a RESIGNATION!
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..
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.
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.
