Barry would wet his pants if we had another terorist attack on our soil. The guy has a spine made of jello. I doubt he would vigorously / aggressively pursue an enemy, but rather go to the UN and ask for sanctions... or maybe treat it as merely a criminal matter.

So to your point... I’d agree that another attack would hurt the D’s more than the R’s. The response would be pathetic and for the last 2 years Barry has not led as a Commander In Cheif during a time that we are at war.

Agreed! That comment Obama made to Woodward, that the US could “absorb” a terrorist attack would come back to haunt him. This cold, detached, self-absorbed person would probably give a shout-out to Chief Running Pig, or whoever it was he mentioned after the Fort Hood shooting and *before* he got around to pretending to look somber. The MSM covered up for him then, but they couldn’t run sufficient interference after a larger scale terrorist attack. People would see the limp-noodle spined guy in the Oval Office for what he is, and that would NOT help the Dems.

Or he could go the Kennedy route.

JFK was viewed as being weak willed when it came to using American force (by the voters and by international leaders). One of the first things JFK did after taking office was to ask his staff to find a relativly “safe” way to deploy American forces so Kennedy could demonstrate to the world he wasn’t weak. Their answer: Vietnam, and the rest is history.

What is that word that you keep hearing rumors of Obama using? Pakistan. IMHO, for some reason I’m getting the impression Obama is itching to send troops into Pakistan, but doesn’t have an excuse to do so.

If there was another major terrorist attack, Obama might shrink back, or he could pull a Kennedy and decide this is his opportunity to show the world he is (1) tough, and (2) smarter than everyone else by going after the “real” terrorist base: Pakistan.
