Pathetic. Obama White House Finds Way to Blame Bush for Detroit Terror Attempt

This is truly just pathetic.
The Obama White House found a way to blame Bush for the Detroit Christmas Day terror attempt.
Verum Serum reported:

Robert Gibbs and Secretary Napolitano made clear that we are pressing ahead with securing our nation against threats and our aggressive posture in the war with al Qaeda. We are winding down a war in Iraq that took our eye off of the terrorists that attacked us, and have dramatically increased our resources in Afghanistan and Pakistan where those terrorists are. We are putting the pressure on al Qaeda worldwide with all elements of American power, and key al Qaeda leaders have been taken out in Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia. Gibbs also made clear the President refuses to play politics with these issues. As he said in West Point, we must put aside petty politics and recapture the unity that we had after 9/11.

Lastly, Gibbs and Secretary Napolitano announced that the president has asked that the policies and procedures that have been in place the last several years related to watch-listing and all information available on the suspect be reviewed.

Blaming Bush for this flub was a stretch even for Obama.
But, it surprises no one.

Flashback: Charlie Foxtrot predicted this would happen.

    The time has come to recognise most Democrat politicians as enemies of our country and our Constitution. I really don’t care how politically incorrect this seems, it has reached critical mass.

  • One must look at her comments in light of what is truth to her and her ilk to understand her comment.

    To her, the most dangerous people in this country are the political resistance to the Kenyan in chief and demo-rat traitors. They MUST be dealt with so that their plans for the Marxist takeover can happen. Everything else is theater. If you look at things this way, her answer makes perfect sense.

    WE are the enemy to her. Not a Muslim terrorist.

    I thought there was not a war on terror. This was nothing. No terror. That ended on January 20th, 2009. We are loved by everyone now. This of course GWB fault. It will always be GWB fault.

    Interesting contrast:

    Result of Bush policies after 9/11: ZERO terrorist attacks on U.S. soil in over SEVEN years.

    Result of Obama policies after Bush: TWO terrorist attacks on U.S. soil in less than ONE year.

    Obama’s conclusion: The two terrorist attacks under Obama’s policies are obviously Bush’s fault.

    Truth: Obama may be the biggest f*cking jerk in the world.

    aside from Obama grasping at straws, he’s a (fitb)..

    Obama aka: Pontius Pilate has been in office for 341 days now.. and he’s still crying about GWB who did more to safe-guard “we the people” as a lame duck prez than he has so far or Clinton for 8 years..

    [Pilate is a type of the worldly man, knowing the right and anxious to do it so far as it can be done without personal sacrifice of any kind, but yielding easily to pressure from those whose interest it is that he should act otherwise.]

    sad situation we’re in, no one at the helm but a

    The second MUSLIM terrorist man-caused event on American soil since 9-11 and JaNa says the process is working? Which process is that? Incompetence? Our state dept. gave a visa to someone on a watch list whose father warned America about? Let’s parallel this event with Bush. They said he was incompetent, ala 9-11 and New Orleans, which was a nature-caused event, and told us incessantly where he was at the time. Obama was on vacation in Hawaii. Did he drop his golf club and run to Detroit or even bother to make a public statement to reassure the American people that we are safe – nope! The Obamas have asked to be left alone on their secluded vacation with friends.

    “Gibbs also made clear the President refuses to play politics with these issues. As he said in West Point, we must put aside petty politics and recapture the unity that we had after 9/11”
    to give any creditability to this, you would have had to sleep through the past 8 years. a bit
    hypocritical i’d say. and these petty politics that they have you put aside – would those be the ones that run counter to his. i thought dissention was patriotic or something. the unity after 9/11 only lasted until it no longer served a purpose.

  • Rosemary Woodhouse

    Good News, Comrades! From the brand new 2010 version of the Newspeak dictionary: whenever one of the forbidden words “muslim” “islam” Mohammadean” “jihadist” or, “terrorist” is required it is mandated that you substitute the word, “Bush”.

  • Good comments. Although we can’t say zero as far as attacks on the U.S. under Bush, there were several domestic terrorist attacks and Bush’s people did their best to do the “lone terrorist” bit just as Obama did. However, GWB did it for a different reason. He believed in preventing a backlash against Muslims here. Jumping up and down and pointing every time there was an attack would have done just that, and played into the hands of the enemy who would like nothing better than an internal war. Obama does it because he wants to prove he’s the answer that will stop the war completely by his mere presence alone. One was done with a good moral intent, the other to promote a man’s own sense of self.

    As far as the Obama crew criticizing Bush’s policy I have only one thing to say, If they spent half the time assembling lists on potential terrorists like veterans and tea party members on actually reviewing and updating policies for the TSA and DHS maybe this wouldn’t have happened. Isn’t that their argument?

    Redstate is trying to start a deathwatch for Napolitano’s job. The early bet looked like mid-January. I think it will hinge on what her role is for the future. A useful idiot in charge of a powerful agency can be used to their advantage.

    Rosemary Woodhouse @ 7:53 pm #22

    you hit that nail head on!!

    Obama’s Newspeak Bans Terrorism

    [With one word, Barack Obama’s new Homeland Security Secretary, Janet Napolitano, has done what the Bush administration couldn’t and abolished terrorism:

    SPIEGEL: Madame Secretary, in your first testimony to the US Congress as Homeland Security Secretary you never mentioned the word “terrorism.” Does Islamist terrorism suddenly no longer pose a threat to your country?

    Napolitano: Of course it does. I presume there is always a threat from terrorism. In my speech, although I did not use the word “terrorism,” I referred to “man-caused” disasters. That is perhaps only a nuance, but it demonstrates that we want to move away from the politics of fear toward a policy of being prepared for all risks that can occur.]

    Obama Bans The Word “Terrorism”

    &

    ‘enemy combatants’

    &

    ‘war on terrorism’

    i think “we the people” desperately
    need to ban Obama from OUR WH..

    The irony has become parody.

    The reality that Obama and the Democrats mantra of presenting the GWOT as nothing more than ‘fear mongering’ and only a fight in Afghanistan has again been vividly demonstrated as utter nonsense.

    It is a laughable contradiction, suggesting one took the eye off the ball, when everything we encounter shows this is a Global Fight against Terrorism.

    Iraq as well as Yemen, Syria, Iran, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, etc., are all essential arenas for the rise of this horror from Radical Muslim Militants.

    In the Obama Administration’s statement, they contradict themselves again, suggesting this was only an issue for Afghanistan and the Pakistani border, but this latest Terror attempt grew outside of Mr. Obama’s declared focus.

    Thus, exposing the Democrat position, one of enormous duplicity, which grew during their unethical efforts to undermine the Bush Administration after 9-11 for personal political gain, is a complete joke.

    This is a Global problem, not just one of simplistic, sophomoric, partisan grand standing, and a limited focus in Afghanistan.

    So far, Team Obama has inherited two new Free Allies in Afghanistan and Iraq, and they look like they are going to mess it up.

    Change is a disaster, and ‘smart power’ is a childish facade.

    The Democratic Party has proven itself to be the most lackluster set of losers of all.

    And they are sending everyone down with it.

    While I am not condoning the actions of any party in this whole mess, it is quite apparent that the potus has not won ANY friends in law enforcement, CIA, NSA, the US military and elsewhere in the scheme of things.

    These parties have every opportunity to look the other way when faced with terrorist activities (and I’m not saying that they did) to make hussein appear even more worthless as a potus than even I thought he was.

    So, go right on ahead Dems and continue to investigate the Bush administration and try to bring the admin that kept us safe all these years to your particular brand of justice. Another example of how out of touch with real America than I ever thought you Dems were.

    Amateurs all.

    actually, the first time (that we know of) was in 1996.. however, the first attack on US soil itself (not on US soil in a foreign land, ie: Embassies in a foreign land, not to mention waters) was the WTC in 1993..

    clarifying re: bg @ 1:20 am #48

    any attack is a declaration of war.. meant to say first written on paper declaration of war was (actually wrote it down, but deleted it).. ergo, war was declared on US way before 1993, more like back in 1983 via the bombing of our troops in Lebanon (but alas, the world wasn’t as small back then)..

    Freedomphobes states, “At Least FIVE Muslim Terrorist Attacks On U.S. Soil In the 9 Months Since Obama Bowed To The Saudi King”

    Interesting link, Anon, though I think 2 of the incidents listed by Freedomphobe shouldn’t be counted as Islamic attacks on U.S. soil, for the following reasons:

    1.) Murder of 13 at upstate New York immigration center on April 3, 2009, for which Pakistan’s unified Taliban movement claimed responsibility: I wouldn’t count this, first, because the note mailed by the murderer explaining his motives had nothing to do with Islam or jihad; and second, because the FBI firmly rejected the Taliban’s claim of responsiblity.

    SOURCES:

    http://in.reuters.com/article/topNews/idINIndia-38883420090404

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binghamton_shootings#Text_of_letter

    2.) Arrest of 4 men belonging to an Islamic terror cell on May 20, 2009 for plotting to blow up two Bronx synagogues while simultaneously shooting a plane out of the sky: Although this group clearly was motivated by jihad, I wouldn’t include this plot in the list since I’m only counting Islamic attacks that were actually carried out. Fortunately, this one was thwarted by FBI and NYPD.

    On the other hand, Freedomphobe does correctly include the murder of an army recruiter (and wounding of another) in Little Rock on June 1, 2009 as an Islamic attack, which I had forgotten to list. (This is the same incident Solaratov reminded me about above.)

    SOURCE: http://www.arktimes.com/blogs/arkansasblog/2009/06/double_shooting_in_lr.aspx

    So, bottom line, is that under Zero, there have been at least THREE Islamic attacks on U.S. soil. Whereas, after 9/11, under Bush there were ZERO.

    Finally, FYI, your link to the Freedomphobe article didn’t work because the correct link actually contains a misspelling of the word “Muslim,” whereas in your link you spelled it correctly. The correct link is:

    http://obama-freedomphobe.blogspot.com/2009/12/at-least-five-mulim-terrorist-attacks.html

  • Rock

    911 was nine months into President Bush’s administration, and the Democrats where more than happy to use that as a excuse to attack him. Well we are twelve months into President Obama and his crews administration, when is he going to start take responsibility for his actions or lack of? Our enemies have only changed their tactics, not their desire, what does it take for the powers to be to adapt?

    [Al-Qaida is a multi-national network possessing a global reach and has supported through financing, training and logistics, Islamic militants in Afghanistan, Algeria, Bosnia, Chechnya, Eritrea, Kosovo, the Philippines, Somalia, Tajikistan, and Yemen, and now Kosovo. Additionally, al-Qaida has been linked to conflicts and attacks in Africa, Asia, Europe, the former Soviet Republics, the Middle East, as well as North and South America.]
