Now really is this the time to be playing politics? Or in the case of Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-MI) fund raising off of the foiled attempt? Is this not the time to work together to figure out how to fix a system with holes?
Never mind the fact that the counter terrorism system in place now is one that the former admin istration put in place. Never mind the fact that is the former administration took 6 days to respond in any way to a similar happening on a Miami bound flight in Dec 2001. (shoe bomber-Richard Reid) Where was the blustering then? That was just after 9/11 to boot. Never mind the fact that it seems the republican party likes to thrive off Americans fears instead of putting forth actual solutions.
When will they stomp blustering and actually DO something? When will they actually stop the fear mongering and let Obama's plan succeed or fail on their own? Is it really beneficial to live in a country that knows nothing but fear? Is that really their plan on how to get back into office?
Under Obama all you know is fear... let us back in we'll fix it! (Just forget that we were the ones that dropped the ball in the first place)
