A terrorist attack on Christmas? The only thing that would make the GOP happier would be if everyone on that plane died. Then they could screech about how "the liberals" are responsible for everything.

You call that "celebrating" terrorism?

I seem to recall a similar use of the term "celebrate" being trotted out over the past decade by "Righties." Liberals celebrate losing in Iraq because they make Bush look bad. Liberals celebrate terror attacks because they make Bush look bad. Liberals celebrate the recession because it makes Bush look bad. Etc.

Hoekstra is OK with us uselessly spending more money playing terrorist whack-a-mole is some new hole of country, while at the same time voting against expanded TSA funding for better screening here. The mere hint of a possibility of unionized baggage handlers is scarier than the terrorists, apparently.

To be honest, I doubt funding is truly the issue when it comes to TSA effectiveness. Using the funding they have with more intelligence would probably be far more effective.

I'm guessing most of the Republicans weren't big on playing "Risk" as kids -- seems like "Hungry Hungry Hippos" was about as intellectually challenging as they got.

"Attack in EVERY direction" is not a strategy.

So where is your evidence that anyone is sticking their head in the sand? Every chance the President gets he's telling us to be vigilant about Al-Qaeda. The only one suggesting this is something new is Rep. Hoekstra and the GOP. The rest of us knew where Yemen was already.

This is exactly what would happen if there was another act of terrorism that succeeded right now. There is no way the Republicans would unite with Obama the way the country did with Bush, and no way they would have if Gore was President.

Yes, he's the partisan. After all, Republicans did a great job of uniting behind Obama when the recession hit.

I believe I have my answer.

The vast majority of Americans were behind Bush after 9/11, myself included. We weren't finger pointing. Would the same happen today with Obama President? If Gore was on 9/11? We all know the answer.

Absolutley.

I voted for and continue to support Obama, so I doubt that would change.

GAT_00: Would the rest of the GOP?


I'd like to think so, however, even if it succeeded, it would not have the same effect on the nation as 9/11, due two thing: 1) the scale of the incident, and 2) the unprecedented nature of the first attack.
Maybe the GOP would come down on why the attack wasn't thwarted, but so shouldn't everyone.

You're correct. However, he was on his way out and everyone knew it. There was little reason to unite behind him, not because it was somehow less impactful than 9/11, but because we were all aware of the fact that he wouldn't be at the helm for the response.

Are you grading the americantude of a huge swath of our population? If that doesn't strike you as idiotic, you may be an idiot yourself.

After a decade of every jackass Republican accusing me of being a terrorist because I thought we might want to think about that whole Iraq invasion thingy, it needs to be said. Sort of sucks when the shoe is on the other foot, huh? The difference is that I don't actually believe it.

Fine. It was snark, but the most significant real reason that 9/12 would be different with a Democrat in charge is because Republicans are significantly more partisan that their counterparts in the Democratic party. That, coupled with their inherent skepticism towards anything the federal government does, would made them more hesitant to line up behind a Democratic president. Better?

gustakooka: What recession can you point to where the population unites because of it? Presidents (or their predecessors) get blame for recessions. It is not a unifying event. Ever.


If it was a regular recession, I'd agree with you. The only reason I rank this one differently is that this went well beyond "small dip downwards" into "shiat your pants" territory.

I feel like we gotten off point with that example though (my own fault for bringing Bush into it). The real point is that regardless of where blame is placed for the recession's origin, typically an incoming President can expect some sort of broad support in dealing with it. Obama never got that. He wasn't in office for two months before teabagger rallies started popping up.

I'm with you, but it will be hard given that there's an entire media establishment dedicated to presenting them with viewpoints that reinforce their own. Also, they're carefully insulated against any stories that show the failure of their ideology. It's how they got to be "tax cut and deregulation" zombies.

There are plenty of situations in which I could support conservative solutions. In many cases, there are compelling arguments to be made in favor of tax cuts, and the removal of overly onerous regulations. That said, those two ideas aren't all purpose silver bullets that should be trotted out as a response to every single problem in any and all situations. That there's a huge swath of the American population that won't even entertain the idea of using other approaches is disappointing.

If you ever had any doubt what an incredible useless tool Rep Hoekstra is this should nail it down (FTA):

Noting that Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan .. was linked to a radical cleric now in Yemen, Hoekstra said this latest incident could be "one more indication" that the al-Qaida branch there is planning attacks


and only after all that bloviating does Hooker admit he knows somewhere between jack and shiat about what actually happened


Hoekstra hadn't yet been briefed on the incident

Maybe you're right about the Republicans, but right about now Obama could sure use some increased approval ratingness from Democrats and independents. It'll be interesting to see what happens. Personally, I don't think Obama's three-minute presser, after 72 hours of radio silence and moments before embarking on his latest golf outing (itself mildly amusing as it came after he declared that we "would not rest" until blah blah blah), is going to do much to help him in that regard.

Phil Herup: SchlingFocker: This recession is WORSE than the terrorist attacks on 9/11.

It's done more damage to our country, taken more lives, and set us back much further than did the attacks on the WTC.


Are you combining people who died due to "recession" with those who died of "lack of insurance"?


Which kills more people? What is the cure? Can you get both "diseases" at the same time?


You are right, Phillip. Bush is responsible for all the deaths of everyone whom has ever died.

I hate to break it to you, but there have been more than a few people ACTIVELY and OPENLY hoping Obama fails just so they can be justified. If you think there's nobody just waiting to say "I told you so!" at the first possible chance, you're the one living in a fantasy world. Just watch Fox "News" or visit Free Republic sometime.

Active and open hoping? Oh, the humanity! String 'em up!

Let's see. Our government is comprised of three basic groups: the Legislative, the Executive, and the Judiciary. Obama (obviously) controls one. His party controls the Legislative branch, with a simple majority (all that is needed) in the House and a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate. The Supreme Court is fairly balanced, but I'm not aware that the Court has actively thwarted Obama in anything, at least yet. So, if Obama fails, it would appear that it's either (1) of his own doing, or (2) the doing of his party. Or both. All those folks "hoping" aren't changing a goddam thing.

Are you telling me you don't remember anyone from the left getting in front of a microphone and asking those questions? Hmm. I'm not saying that the right is any better. I am saying that it's rather silly to say that the left was perfectly in support of W. after 9/11.

Since I'm not familiar with the Glenn Beck book, I can only assume the following: when the left asks questions after a disaster that it's well reasoned inquiry, and when the right asked questions its fringe kookery.

As an outside observer and from seeing much of what is going on in your hilarious politics, I think that this cartoon is a very likely depiction of what would have happened if one of the "dems" was in office.

Maybe its impossible to guess what would have exactly happened, but by follow the trends and behaviors of the right, this is very possible.

That they will go down full on the throttle blaming Obama directly and personally for this attack?

That they will make the claim that only the acts of the heroic passengers saved us from Obama's incompetent - perhaps traitorous - mismanagement?

FTA: "People have got to start connecting the dots here, and maybe this is the thing that will connect the dots for the Obama administration," said Hoekstra.

I'm sure that, unlike his predecessor, Mr. Obama actually pays attention to his PDBs.

Noting that Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan -- the Army officer who is accused of killing more than a dozen people at Ft. Hood, Texas, last month -- was linked to a radical cleric now in Yemen, Hoekstra said this latest incident could be "one more indication" that the al-Qaida branch there is planning attacks.

Obama's Homeland Security secretary says "the system worked" before having to backpedal so fast she's lucky she still has heels on her feet.

Obama comes out, days after the incident, and labels the terrorist an "isolated extremist" who "allegedly" attempted to blow up the plane.

This follows a pattern. Obama instantly labeling the Fort Hood shooter an isolated extremist, too. Then we find out both the Fort Hood shooter and the underwear bomber were tied to al Qaeda in Yemen.

This exposes Obama's blatantly political attempts to steer the storyline away from the utter failure of his attempts to be the world's buddy and deal with terrorism differently than the Bush administration.

But yeah, Republicans are the problem here.

You are conveniently ignoring Obama's rather bellicose, near Bush-like speech spelling out in no uncertain terms that there is evil in this world and bright-lining America's role and duty to seek out and destroy that evil; preemptively, if necessary.

How about the Neocon math where 9112001=12252009? The Freepers are summoning up their staggering powers of dissonance to imply these two events are equal, at least as far as the Presidential response was equal... Where's the discussion on THAT?!?!?!??

House of Tards: dnicoloff: Gangway Fathead: I'm sure the tea party brigade will rally behind Obama in the event of the unthinkable.

If he actually did the right thing they would.

I know right. When has going to war with an Islamic country ever not worked out for us, anyway?


To you and HEARTBURNKID: I find it interesting that just because I suggested that he wouldn't do the right thing, that you both jump straight to War and bombings. Actually what I had in mind was simply admitting that these are NOT isolated events. That there is a mindset in this world that America is an enemy to be attacked and it's people killed in the name of a religion/world view. That we must be diligent within the international community and our closest allies to try to disrupt and break apart this network that feeds into this mindset.

jeez.. and BTW what IS the right thing to do if not this?? Since TARDS is the arbiter of knowing what is right?

So, I want a show of hands: Who wants to invade Yemen? Like, tomorrow? Because, hey, AQ in Yeman, right?

I'm fascinated by two things in this thread: The first is the debate over what would have happened if Gore was president during 9-11. I don't know. If he had invaded Afghanistan, probably a 90% approval rating. But if he had failed to catch O.B.L. like Bush did? Yeah, he would have been impeached by 9-11-02. Without a doubt.

And you know why I think this? Because I had many arguments with conservatives round about 2003, who wanted Clinton strung up for failing to get O.B.L. after the embassy bombings in 1998, despite the fact that NO ONE from either party thought we should invade Afghanistan in 1998. Flash forward to 2007, several years later, and those same conservatives who wanted to string up Clinton were making excuse after excuse for Bush's failure to get O.B.L.

So, now, Conservatives, get on board, tell us whether Obama should invade Yeman. Put your thoughts on the record.

Well, your post implied that Bush had done the right thing. And what he did was bomb random brown people. See how that works?

I don't think anybody can argue that there isn't a larger pattern here. There are, indeed, several groups in the Middle East who would like nothing better than to kill us. That doesn't give us free license to turn the Middle East into a glass parking lot. We should deal with those groups as they deserve, and we should deal with the nations in the area as THEY deserve.

If Bush had been president during the Cuban Missile Crisis, we'd have immediately gone to war with El Salvador. All I'm saying.

Jesus, some of you people are just silly. Was Hoeksra rooting for a successful attack? No. Was there a failure? Yes. Are we lucky enough the attempt failed and we can try to correct the mistakes that happened which allowed this young man board a flight to Detroit? Absolutely.

I do not want to be partisan, but Janet Napolitano's Weeners was all wrong. The administration does seem to be taking this event seriously, and I hope my impression is correct.

While I do think there will be other attempts, I do hope this event is a wake up call and I do hope and believe this administration will do all it can to stop further attacks.

I Hoekstra's case, questioning is not rooting for a successful attack, it is pointing out areas we need to focus on to avoid another 9-11.

They were both wrong and both sent the wrong message. I am glad to see the administration has circled the wagons and realized "the system did not work," and the system belongs to them, and them alone. Gibbs and Napolitano did not represent President Obama well with their Weeners.

kronicfeld: Elvis_Bogart: You call that "celebrating" terrorism?

Man, you Lefties really see the world strangely.

I seem to recall a similar use of the term "celebrate" being trotted out over the past decade by "Righties." Liberals celebrate losing in Iraq because they make Bush look bad. Liberals celebrate terror attacks because they make Bush look bad. Liberals celebrate the recession because it makes Bush look bad. Etc.


I'd have to disagree with you in both instances. I don't think the liberals were celebrating the problems in the Iraq war and I don't think Republicans are celebrating over terrorism. With the Iraq war, the left seemed to realize more than the right the fact that we farked up going over there under false pretenses. And in the current situation, the Republicans are calling to be more aggressive against the threat..though a lot of that seems to be them wanting to reaffirm the appearance that they're tough on terrorism and democrats are not.

Dude, put the hyperbole aside. Was there a failure? Yes. Was it the administration which failed? Maybe yes, maybe no. Were the responses of Gibbs and Napolitano an example of failure? Absolutely.

Unfortunately, there will be more attempts in the next three years, but lets just hope this failed attack was a wake-up call and whatever failures allowed this to happen are corrected.

Gangway Fathead: Which of Bush's anti-terror policies do you think Obama has undone the most?


He's just getting started.

The FIRST thing he's doing is putting CIA agents, Navy Seals, etc. on trial for their 'crimes' against captured jihadis.

The next (and most spectacular) stage will be putting Bush (along with western civilization in general) on trial with these ridiculous jihadi show-trials in NYC, complete with tax payer funded dream-team lawyers for Fark's muslim heroes.

And liberal democrats (not to mention the jihadis themselves!) DREAM of this going on, and on, and on and on - forever, and ever and ever.


And then there are the new ROE's in Afganistan. It's the liberal dream of fighting every war - i.e. 'just so long as nobody gets hurt'.

Liberals are going to do what they always do, and Obama is the Liberal-in-Chief.

What he's going to do is keep trying to 'work with' our sworn enemies, in one useless, ivory-tower fashion after another while the jihadis continue their plans to strike... until they finally do so successfully.


Bet on it...

My post was directed at Gato Negro and Libbynomore. Two of the biggest asshole trolls on Fark. It was idiotic of you to agree with one of them though in another post.

Who have I agreed with? I called out "Libbynomore" for his hyperbole and have gone to great lengths to say I think the response from Gibbs and Napolitano were wrong, but not a failure on the administation's part.

Look, I am doing my level best to not be partisan and hope things can be learned to prevent the loss of fellow American lives due to terror attacks. I know there will be attempts and my default position will be this administration is doing everything possible to keep us safe... Spokes-people for the admin need not be so flippant when there is an attempt, that is my only point.

jpo2269: While I do not disagree with you about the behavior of some liberals,

Do you argue that EVERY LIBERAL has been measured in their claims and charges? Do you feel that you might be one of the "some liberals?" Look, I will be the first to admit there are those on both sides of the isle who are @$$hats, I just won't defend mine, nor feel threatened if someone attacks them.. Maybe you should re-evaluate who you defend.

Gato Negro: Gangway Fathead: Which of Bush's anti-terror policies do you think Obama has undone the most?


He's just getting started.

The FIRST thing he's doing is putting CIA agents, Navy Seals, etc. on trial for their 'crimes' against captured jihadis.

The next (and most spectacular) stage will be putting Bush (along with western civilization in general) on trial with these ridiculous jihadi show-trials in NYC, complete with tax payer funded dream-team lawyers for Fark's muslim heroes.

And liberal democrats (not to mention the jihadis themselves!) DREAM of this going on, and on, and on and on - forever, and ever and ever.


And then there are the new ROE's in Afganistan. It's the liberal dream of fighting every war - i.e. 'just so long as nobody gets hurt'.

Liberals are going to do what they always do, and Obama is the Liberal-in-Chief.

What he's going to do is keep trying to 'work with' our sworn enemies, in one useless, ivory-tower fashion after another while the jihadis continue their plans to strike... until they finally do so successfully.


Bet on it...



Trials? We're supposed to have trials. That's not going to make it any easier for terrorists to attack us. New ROE's in Afghanistan? People have claimed the rules were too restrictive on our soldiers since day one. (But then some people won't be happy with anything less than the fabled "glass parking lot.") As for working with our 'sworn enemies' I'll believe it when I see it. He's not currently doing anything of the sort.


But like you I have little doubt that there will be a terrorist attack during Obama's time. And the president after that as well. But it won't be because of trials or rules of engagement or alleged attempts at diplomacy.

If he actually did the right thing they would.

I know right. When has going to war with an Islamic country ever not worked out for us, anyway?

To you and HEARTBURNKID: I find it interesting that just because I suggested that he wouldn't do the right thing, that you both jump straight to War and bombings. Actually what I had in mind was simply admitting that these are NOT isolated events. That there is a mindset in this world that America is an enemy to be attacked and it's people killed in the name of a religion/world view. That we must be diligent within the international community and our closest allies to try to disrupt and break apart this network that feeds into this mindset.

jeez.. and BTW what IS the right thing to do if not this?? Since TARDS is the arbiter of knowing what is right?

Well, your post implied that Bush had done the right thing. And what he did was bomb random brown people. See how that works?

I don't think anybody can argue that there isn't a larger pattern here. There are, indeed, several groups in the Middle East who would like nothing better than to kill us. That doesn't give us free license to turn the Middle East into a glass parking lot. We should deal with those groups as they deserve, and we should deal with the nations in the area as THEY deserve.

If Bush had been president during the Cuban Missile Crisis, we'd have immediately gone to war with El Salvador. All I'm saying.


I implied NOTHING! What are you my wife now? You know what i'm thinking by a quick offhand comment. You sir are clearly insane. You have taken a simple statement and turned it into your own sick and twisted world view. I NEVER said Bush did the right thing and you know what, even if GWB was the President during the Cuban Missle Crisis, you have no way of knowing what he would have done because he would have been born at a different time, had a different life, and different set of experiences. You clearly have some chip on your shoulder for the man, so I will end this and say good day to you sir!

Here are four articles that deal with this topic:

1. Jackson defends Jar Jar Binks

"Attack Of The Clones star Samuel L Jackson has slammed fans and
critics who have branded Star Wars character Jar Jar Binks racist...
"I thought it [the fuss] was pretty stupid," Jackson said recently...
"
Yahoo UK + Ireland Film News
http://uk.news.yahoo.com/020529/242/czxd6.html

2. 30th May 2002
Samuel Defends Jar Jar Binks

"Movie star Samuel L Jackson has leaped to the defence of new
Star Wars character Jar Jar Binks... believes some people have
analysed the character in a racial sense because it was voiced by a
black man Ahmed Best..."
http://www.cinema.com/news/item.phtml?ID=5984

3. Samuel L Jackson looks back at some of the Episode-I criticisms
20th Aug 2000

"We received a transcript of an article that has been printed in the
Sunday Telegraph in Australia in which Samuel L. Jackson defends two
of the key criticisms of Star Wars Episode-I: The Phantom Menace... On
Jar Jar Binks
"That's just more bulls***. One person says it's racist , then
everybody else jumps on the bandwagon. You ask any nine year old who
their favorite character was - It was Jar Jar Binks." "

4. Samuel L. Jackson On Getting to Fight Like a Jedi
By Mike Szymanski
May 11, 2002

"Jackson laughs about the people who are offended by Binks'
Caribbean-like patois, which some have deemed racist.

"Watching the film, as soon as the clone female showed up, I'm kind of
like, 'Oh, man, she looks very Zulu.' Or the four-armed cook in the
diner, 'Hmm, sounds very Italian.' He's not. It's silly, it's a
different world." "

Why jump to racism, rather than the much more obvious 'bumbling clown' or 'jester' archetype? THAT'S what Jar Jar was. The comparison is that Obama is Jar Jar court jester FAIL.

Why? There is nothing the Republicans won't attack Obama for, and you think there will be unity in the event of a terrorist attack? I find that impossible to believe.

Oh, there'll be unity alright...The entire GOP will be celebrating their asses off.

Haven't they been wishing, hoping and dreaming that there will be a terrorist attack that is NOT thwarted so they can all blame Obama as a terrorist-loving Muslim-Socialist (fill in all the other adjectives-as-epithets here)?
Too lazy to Google it, but quite a few of the GOPers are on record expressing this hope for the death and destruction of 'their fellow Americans'.

Lookie here, another idiot who thinks that the post 9/11 unity was due merely to the great people in the opposition party.


You are in error.
I'm referring to what is going on NOW-
You know, as in "2009-going-into-2010."

Pocket Ninja: Personally, I think that anybody who tries to increase their greenlight odds by submitting the same exact headline with two different tags attached to two different articles should be outed, mocked, banned, and blacklisted.


Personaly I think people that type run on posts that arent funny in the least bit should be taken out back and shot.
