Obama Calls Airport Pat-Downs Frustrating But Necessary
WTSP ^ | 11/20/2010 | WTSP

Posted on 11/20/2010 4:47:58 PM PST by Dallas59

President Obama said today he sympathizes with passenger complaints about aggressive body pat-downs at airports, but his counter-terrorism aides say they are necessary to guard against hidden explosives.

Balancing privacy and security is a “tough situation,” Obama told reporters at a news conference following the NATO summit in Lisbon, Portugal.

“One of the most frustrating aspects of this fight against terrorism is that it has created a whole security apparatus around us that causes a huge inconvenience for all of us,” Obama said.

Obama cited the attempted airplane attack by the so-called underwear bomber last Christmas as justification for aggressive security measures.

Hey stupid....They just found bombs in cargo planes. You need a handheld sniffer...with a 1 foot range...not a groper because you won’t catch a mule.

I predict that that will become a big issue again, especially if he thinks he can run for 2012. Will John Boehner falsify documentation like Pelosi did? He’d better not.

“Frustrating” my @$$! What a crappy choice of words from the “cleanest, “most brilliant” black guy on the planet. Disgraceful and disgusting would be better choices.

I wonder if he’d call his kids getting groped “Frustrating But Necessary”.

I’m not listing his old lady.

Even TSA has standards.

It's purposely being kept from Americans. If not, he'd have provided it by now to end the ever-expanding controversy.

Envision Michelle going through the nude scanner or being firmly patted down........

Bad wording on my part. Sorry. Give Hussein what he deserves and give GOD the glory for showing us what it is.

There, fixed it. These TSA strong arm tactics have nothing to do with protecting us from terrorism. These tactics weren't implemented after the attempted underwear bomb attack, but were only implemented after the election results almost three weeks ago. Obama realizes now that Americans are not accustomed to government intrusion, so he is now trying to condition us. Once we accept this, we'll accept anything.
