On a light note, read the following from the American Thinker:
Top Ten reasons it took Obama 3 days to respond to terror attempt
"Barack Obama has received considerable criticism for waiting three days to address the attempted Christmas Day bombing of Northwest Flight 253. In the holiday spirit of giving, I would like to offer Obama ... the Top 10 excuses Obama can use for why it took him so long to speak up.
10. My teleprompter was on vacation last week.
9. Polishing a Nobel Prize takes longer than you think.
8. It was Bush's fault. (Hey, it worked last year.)
7. The waves here in Hawaii are bitchen, dude.
6. Janet Napolitano said the system worked great, even if I couldn't get email on my Blackberry for a while there.
5. This sort of thing just ain't supposed to happen on my watch.
4. It was Bush's fault.
3. Axelrod never told me I'd have to work holidays.
2. I was busy celebrating Festivus.
And the Number One excuse Obama can give for taking so long to respond to the attempted attack on Northwest Flight 253:
I was busy looking for my birth certificate."
On a more serious note, read about the interesting priorities of our commander-in-chief, also from the American Thinker:
Strange priorities in Obamaland
"Let me get the facts straight. On Christmas day, an al-Qaida associated suicide bomber nearly incinerates a planeload of Americans over Detroit. Our fearless leader makes a flaccid statement three days later, decrying the act. What took three days? Was he busy golfing, shooting hoops, or just working out at the gym?
Later on that day, the son of a friend who was vacationing with the Obama family in Hawaii has a minor accident. The nine year-old son of Dr. Eric Whitaker bumps his head during a surfing lesson. Obama instantly interrupts his golf game to rush back to his luxury resort and check on his friend's son's condition. As it turns out, he is fine.
My question is: Why does a friend's son get immediate attention while the safety of American citizens takes three days of vacation before getting around to addressing it? Obama reveals himself again?"
UPDATE: BTW, take note, Diogenes, to the last sentence in the second article. You will notice that I did not post the name the author gave to President Obama, but instead, out of respect for his office, replaced it with his name. You forgot to acknowledge that I do that.
