I’m worried, finally, that lines of traditionally assumed competence are being dropped. The past few weeks I can’t shake from my head this picture: The man with the football—the military aide who carries the U.S. nuclear codes, and who travels with the president—is carrying the wrong code. He’s carrying last month’s code, or the one from December 2012. And there’s a crisis—a series of dots on a radar screen traveling toward the continental U.S.—and the president is alerted. He’s in the holding room at a fundraiser out west ......

Pretty bad when PEGGY NOONAN is worried about basic defense of the country & Obummer screwing it up. Then again, I think Obummer told us all we needed to know about whether he will defend Americans when Benghazi happened .... the answer is "no". Of course Benghazi was 'abroad' ... Peggy is actually worried about the homeland. My, how things have changed (for the worse) since The Won was elected.

Surely Peggy Noonan doesn’t really think that Obama would have the will or guts to act decisively on a nuclear threat. The “codes” are hardly the weak link here.

Peggy can’t possibly be figuring out only now, that both the puppet and the puppeteers are empty vessels. Is this just her fuzzy way of softening up lefties to the hard fact that things fall apart when leaders are incompetent, and that falling apart has consequences? That three more years of this idiot are so dangerous that he needs to go NOW? It is hard to read this otherwise.
