I said it before and I will say it again, image counts.
First of all, unemployment is over 10% (17% if you are really counting). That means that this Christmas many Americans no doubt had a severely limited or no Christmas at all. Needless to say vacationing for these unemployed Americans was strictly out of the question. So why isn’t our president at least making the attempt to appear like he shares their pain? Spending Christmas at the White House or Camp David would have at least conveyed the message that these are tough times and we are all feeling the pinch.
This is the least thing wrong with Obama’s vacation. The failed Christmas bomber is much bigger. Remember how some people raked Bush over the coals for continuing to read that book to the school kids at the onset of 9/11? Well this is looking a whole lot worse. We have what appears to be a genuine Al Qaeda attempt that failed simply by the grace of God. Homeland Security Clown Janet Napolitano is not making anyone feel safe with her bizarre world explanations that the system is working. Even CBS’s lame attempt to spin is pathetic. Fighting terror via conference calls and BlackBerry looks like a half ass attempt to everybody.
Finally, once again revolution seems to be stirring in Iran. Aside from the military option, revolution is our second best chance for foiling Iran’s nuclear ambitions. So where is our fearless leader while this second opportunity unfolds? Golfing and island hopping out in Hawaii, of course!
My advice to Obama: get your ass home and handle the people’s business!
