More Interesting Headlines and Stuff

This isn't a headline, but is the first paragraph of a New York Post article regarding the attack on the American embassy in Libya two days ago:

"US officials are increasingly suspicious that the murder Tuesday of the US ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and three other American officials was not the result of a protest against an anti-Islam film, but instead was a coordinated terror strike timed for the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks."

I can only shake my head in amazement.  How long did it take these "US officials" to figure this out?  This is an absolutely horrendous failure of American foreign policy, and yes, Barack Obama is to blame.  Liberals don't get it that, to radical Muslims, 9/11 is a day to celebrate, not apologize for or mourn over.  Everyone of America's embassies and consulates in the Middle East should have been triple-prepared, on that day, for something to happen.  And then, intially, they want to blame some movie maker for offending Muslims?  I doubt very seriously that those people in Libya and Cairo knew a thing about that movie.  9/11 is an anniversary to them and America should have been prepared.

One fellow asked a great question: if Obama is so concerned with feelings
in the Muslim world, why is he bragging so much about killing Osama bin Laden?

Why am I not surprised that we weren't prepared for what happened two days ago?  Well, here are a couple of reasons:

Headline number 1:  "President Skips More Than Half of Intel Briefings...Report:  Spent 412 hours in economic meetings, 600 hours on the golf course"

Obama doesn't know what's going on because he doesn't care.  On top of that, even if he did, his whole philosophy makes it impossible for him to successfully deal with any major policy issue in the country.  You cannot apologize your way to national greatness or tax and regulate your way to economic growth.

Headline number 2"White House declines Netanyahu request to meet with Obama...'Schedule Full'...Announces 'Letterman' Appearance..."

Appearing on the David Letterman show is more important to the President of the United States than meeting with the head of state of one of our best friends from a country in one of the most vital, strategic, and volatile regions of the world.  Jimmy Carter was George Washington compared to this guy.

And an economic headline that explains why there has been no recovery under this administration:  "Obama Adds 11,327 Pages of Regulations in Three Years...18 pages to define 'full-time employee' for Obamacare..."

"You didn't build that...."  Well, nobody is going to build anything if Barack Obama remains President....
