    This is (if memory serves) the third time I have created a thread to be objective about President Obama in a positive way. Mostly my objectivity about his Presidency is critical and quite negative. But, I still think one is obliged to "give the devil his due."

    To the extent that the Administration IS to blame for the NUMEROUS and overlapping "screwups" that ALMOST resulted in a plotted terrorist act succeeding, it is GOOD to see that President Obama is more or less now owning it.

    If we cannot admit our mistakes, we cannot learn from them.

    He should go further, now. He SHOULD takes some pains to give due credit to the prior Administration, acknowledge that some of his (and his Administration's) criticisms of the prior Administration were misguided and unfair. He SHOULD damn well offer an apology to President Bush AND to Vice President Cheney. In fact, he SHOULD invite them both back to the White House for a private and serious discussion about the appropriate uses to which the Bush Administrations' well-crafted tools COULD be properly put to better effect, now.

    If he did these things, the Soros uber-left wing base of the Democrat Parody would turn on him like a mad dog. But President Obama MIGHT just find that there are those of us on the right who are willing to embrace his efforts when he moves in the proper direction. Politically, it might not offset the damage he'd incur, but that's ok. It could be a Profiles In Courage display just the same.

    So much for what he SHOULD do to take additional steps in the right direction.

    I say the President actually DOES deserve some props for manning-up to the responsibility of HIS Administration for the near tragedy over Detroit. :clap2:

    I look forward to seeing if there is a meaningful follow-through.

    I dunno. I'm surprised. It COULD be a head-fake, I guess.

    But if he has actually gotten it through his head that he is the President of the United States of America and that, as such, he is responsible to take the actions reasonably required to prepare for such anticipated attacks, then I am pleased that he is growing into the job. Surprised, but pleased.

    I just HOPE that it's not a head-fake.

    I watched Obama, and was not impressed. He talks a good talk, with zero passion for the Americans on that plane and no kudos to those who saved the day.

    OMG! :lol::lol::lol:

    LOL!

    That sounds like one of those Hollywood roasts I saw last year.

    Bab Saget ( a truly vile comic ) was roasting the VERY geriatric Cloris Leachman, the old bat from the Mary Tyler Moore show. Saget and the others made references to Leachman's vagina that would make Yukon retch.
