3,000 Dead Americans Just Another Day At The Office

That is unless it is your office that is object of affection of the terrorists. This shouldn't surprise anyone really coming from a man who has vilified everyone and everything at one time or another as being the next great evil but Islamic extremists. Big Banks, Wall St, Insurance companies, Tea Party supporters, Big Pharma and the list goes on and on. I guess he didn't shed too many tears over the 9/11 attack since the target was some of those very same evil Wall St type folks he holds in such contempt.
Woodward's book portrays Obama and the White House as barraged by warnings about the threat of terrorist attacks on U.S. soil and confronted with the difficulty in preventing them. During an interview with Woodward in July, the president said, "We can absorb a terrorist attack. We'll do everything we can to prevent it, but even a 9/11, even the biggest attack ever . . . we absorbed it and we are stronger."

More people died in the attacks on the World Trade Centers (2977) then died in the attack on Pearl Harbor (2388), A day which will live in infamy. One was an attack on a military target while the other was aimed directly at civilians.

His revelation comes across as callous, and like everything else this administration does it all boils down to numbers. You are just a number, whether it comes to how the health care takeover which will dole out it's services or the number of unemployed, which they seem to come up with a different euphemism to describe every time you turn around. Remember the flap over the removal of a cancer drug from an approved list because of the cost benefit analysis?

So we can "absorb a terrorist attack" huh? That sounds like the drunk in a bar challenging the big dude with a taunt of is that the best you can do. C'mon hit us again, we can take it. I want to be the big guy who turns around and with a stare that freezes the blood in your veins responds with a promise that you will no longer be eating your meals with that big mouth of yours but rather you will be sucking them through a straw.

In other words America, suck it up. Now watch this - "Fore"

It is true that Americans when we get knocked down, at least in the past anyway, didn't spend a lot of time crying in the dirt but rather we pick ourselves up and get back into the fight. Nowadays I am not so sure. The rise of the metrosexual and a culture which lionizes beta males while trying to drug and suppress any signs of macho out of our males just doesn't seem to me to be a lot to hang your hat on. It may explain the rise of women in Republican politics. Somebodies got to wear the pants and apparently it ain't the men anymore.

The only person in this country who is really happy that Obama is president is Jimmy Carter because he can now shed the moniker of worst president ever.
