The Prez Still Doesn't Get It

So this weekend saw yet another Muslim on an airplane cause a flight problem. This time it was from Atlanta to San Francisco, and they had to land because he went to the bathroom and wouldn't come out. So has our commander-in-chief stepped boldly forward and said he will up airport security toward those who are obviously Muslim (names like Muhammed sort of give it away)? Nope. He's blaming the system and the American people for this lapse in security. It's not the Muslim's fault for trying to cause's still the nation he rules as our prez.

I can understand the problem with profiling. I can see where this could be uncomfortable with some folks, but let's be honest: if you were on a flight and you saw someone suspicious enter the plane you'd feel better if you knew they'd been carefully screened, wouldn't you? If they stood up mid-flight, you'd be nervous. In the past few months things have really stepped up in their displays of disruption in flights, and it's obvious they're just insulting the American people because they know our muslim president will not take action against them or stand up to them. I hope there's still an  American left when we vote him out of office in 2012.

How about those healthcare discussions that were supposed to be "transparent"? Here they are carefully plotting the destruction of our healthcare and rationing of doctor visits, and obama has backtracked on what he said over 20 times in his campaign. He will not allow the public to hear what they're discussing because he has come to the sudden realization that if the people really knew what was going on behind those doors they'd try to shut him down.

Not that we could do anything about it. The demonstrations, letters, and faxes to the Senators and Congressmen did nothing to slow them down. They told their constituents to stick it and voted the way Reid and Pelosi told them to.

What it boils down to is the fact that we have nothing going for us right now except the fact that it's possible to get the healthcare repealed before it can actually take effect. If we can get some folks in there with backbones  that care about the people they were elected to represent, then maybe we can  make a comeback.
