Oh, I'm So Relieved; Obama "Likely" To Speak About Christmas Day Attack

All part of the Left's unserious response to terrorism; the President will get around to doing his job just as soon has he finishes his waffles:

White House sources tell ABC News the President will "likely" speak publicly about the alleged attempted terrorist attack on Flight 253 in the next few days. The President is on vacation in his native state of Hawaii - he has received regularly briefings on the incident and called for increased security for air travel, along with a full review of the terror watch list procedures. The White House is adamant that the President is actively engaged on the incident behind the scenes, receiving regular updates as information comes in. While on vacation Mr. Obama does not keep a public schedule, but he did spend much of the day golfing on Saturday and is spending Sunday with his family at the beach.

The President's disengagement from one of his primary duties—to defend the United States—is so galling because Obama so clearly knows what he is supposed to be doing, but doesn't want to be bothered. That's why every single unnamed White House source for the past three days has "stressed that the President is very concerned about what is going on in the world and is actively engaged at all levels."

But by "actively engaged" they must mean perfecting his golf swing, because that is what he has been up to. If you believe that he is "actively engaged" you probably also believe that "the system worked" and that the president's performance this year deserves a solid B-plus.

Here's the real heresy: if you doubt that he is actively engaged, as anyone not neck deep in David Axelrod's colon must, then there's good reason to doubt that the President is "very concerned about what is going on in the world." Honestly, I think the President is very concerned about his plummeting favorability ratings. I think he's very concerned that Michael Moore isn't taking his phone calls anymore. I think he's very concerned that people treated his Nobel prize like a joke. But I don't think he gives a damn about what is going on in the world unless Rahm Emanuel tells him to.

Speaking of people getting used to the taste of Axelrod's ass, the Left is trying to justify Obama's disengagement and Napolitano's rank ignorance by mischaracterizing the Christmas Day attack as "not so scary", "pretty unserious", "hardly a first-order national security threat" and "a joke."

See, it doesn't matter that the President, who in the past eleven months hasn't been able to keep himself from imposing his ugly mug on primetime television more often than President Bush did in his first four years, hasn't made a statement because this isn't "serious" terrorism. Presumably terrorism is only serious when it's successful; anything without a body count is meant to be laughed off and ignored.
