So we all recall the drubbing GWB took over the so-called "Federal" response to Katrina. We recall the incessant media pounding.

Re the knickers bomber: a complete and total breakdown, and only a failed detonator saved 300 souls.

So when does Barry call for Napolitano's resignation???

When will the media demand Napolitano's resignation???

Who gets the blame? Or do we not assign blame anymore, and just say instead, "mistakes were made"?

If there were EVER a more open and in-your-face display of how the lamestream media is totally invested and in the tank for this president, thas is it.

Why did it take the President 3 days to comment on it? To Condemn it? To let eth nation know that it iS still OK to fly?

If the Moron (the one on the plane) had SUCCEEDED and killed all those people, would it have taken 3 days to hear from the Prez?

What is the difference between a FAILED attempt at killing 200+ people and actually doing it?

If someone holds a gun in your face and pulls the trigger, but the round is a DUD, would it matter to you? Or No big deal?

First off, who said that Obama was in any shape to speak the moment it happened? This guy doesn't impress me as one of those clean, sober, upright, all American clean cut types.

He ain't no Tiger Woods..oops, bad example. Well, anyway, the skeletons are still in Obama's closet for now...but who knows?

Ever wonder if that terrorist had succeeded if we would have ever known the truth of what happened.
Ever think about why it was so easy for him to get on the plane being on a watch list, no luggage, cash ticket, nothing....by design to further some agenda?
Yet it took the wife and I over an hour to get thru our customs here when we came back from Jamaica while she looked for seeds
Very scary times, and yet its grandma that gets the pat down at the airports. Something is very wrong and one could only wonder about the real agenda.
They say the list he was on contains 500,000 people, we can't watch them all. Well you only have to watch the one that shows up at the airport don't ya? The other 499,999 are at home.
Update- while reading the news this morning it now seems as if he is contemplating the unions taking over tsa. Now there is a possible agenda.

Napolitano wants to unionize TSA employees despite safety concerns

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano hasn't exactly inspired confidence after proclaiming "the system worked" in response to the recent thwarted terrorist attack. A radical Islamic terrorist -- whose father had warned the U.S. embassy of his dangerous intentions -- smuggled explosives on board a flight into the U.S. and nearly detonated them. It was hardly a victory for Homeland Security. In fact, this paper called for her resignation this morning.

Well, as if that weren't bad enough, Napolitano was already at work undermining security measures long before the most recent terrorist attacks. Over the weekend, Senator Jim DeMint, R-S.C., sounded the alarm about the Obama administration's attempts unionize Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) employees:

The administration is intent in on unionizing and submitting our airport security to union bosses [and] collective bargaining, and this is at a time, as Senator Lieberman says, we've got to use our imagination we've got to be constantly flexible. We have to out think the terrorists. When we formed the airport security system we realize we could not use collective bargaining and unionization because of that need to be flexible. Yet that appears to be the top priority of the administration.

The flexibility that DeMint speaks of is crucial. After a British airliner bombing plot was uncovered in 2006, the TSA overhauled security procedures in a matter of 12 hours to deal with the threat of liquid explosives. It's difficult to imagine that kind of flexibility under ossified union rules.

The reason why DeMint is concerned about unionizing TSA is twofold. One, the President's nominee to head up the TSA, Eroll Southers, refuses to say whether he would allow collective bargaining. And two, this exchange between Demint and Napolitano earlier this month probably did not reassure the Senator from South Carolina:

Sen. DeMint: My question to you is not whether or not you've seen it work at a state or local level, but the whole point of homeland security and particularly TSA is the security of our -- of the passengers, and if -- in the beginning -- and our debate -- and every previous administrator at TSA has said that collective bargaining is not consistent with the flexibility and the need to change. You were telling us that you're going to collectively bargain, even though there's apparently no reason to protect workers. There's not any reason to standardize various work requirements. Why do we need to bring collective bargaining into this process when we see TSA making the improvements that it needs to make our passengers more secure?

Sec. Napolitano: Well, thank you, senator, for noting the improvements of our -- of TSA and the employee workforce we have there, but again, I go back to the basic point that I do not think security and collective bargaining are mutually exclusive, nor do I think that collective bargaining cannot be accomplished by an agency, such as TSA, should the workers desire to be organized in such a fashion.
Sen. DeMint: Okay. Thank you for answering my question.

To sum up, DeMint asks Napolitano what reason there is for collective baragaining in light of security concerns. Despite the pleasantries, it's clear Napolitano won't or can't answer the question, even though the safety of American travelers depends on her answer.
