    Politico summed it up pretty nicely but they left out the "reason" behind some of the decisions.

    The "reason" the Republicans don't want the bomb detection equipment, bomb detection sounds so innocuous, is because of the "virtual image" created, which was mentioned in the article.

    Republicans feel that is an invasion of privacy. To me, the reason that is laughable, is because the SAME Republicans supported the Bush Patriot act, which invaded every aspect of every Americans life by Big Government. You can listen to my phone calls, you can seep into my life, but don't look at my "kibbles and bits". Oh, brother.

    Now you have to hand it to the Democrats. They have rarely mentioned that the two masterminds of this plot were in Gitmo, but BUSH/CHENEY let them go. That's right, BUSH CHENEY LET THEM GO. Come on, they let Bin Laden go. Just a coincidence? Hmmm?

    So let's tally up the card.

    Republicans voted against funding TSA

    Republicans voted against ratifying a new head of TSA.

    Republicans let the two masterminds behind this plot go.

    Obama waited 72 hours before publicly speaking about it, but since Bush waited a week in the Richard Reid case, we will call it a wash. Democrat are held to a higher standard.

    Then there is the democrats.

    Janet misspoke.

    Someone didn't report this to the FBI (of course, that could have been an undercover Republican that withheld the info)

    Now, now, let's not let the facts cloud political reasoning.

    The Rs don't want full-body image scans? Seriously?

    Word. How many times have I heard them say things like "if you're not doing anything wrong, you have nothing to be afraid of" from 2001 to 2008? Too many to count.

    I'm surprised you people aren't waiting for the ACLU to tell you what to about full body scans before going off half cocked.

    Full body image scans make detailed virtual images of the body.

    You can see "kibbles".

    You can see "bits".

    It has nothing to do with right or wrong. It's a question of letting a stranger see "noodles and eggrolls", "kibbles and bits", "this and that".

    It's the same reason that some men won't go to a "woman" doctor.

    GOP Hypocritical?

    How could you say that? Why Obama should have shut down the airways on Christmas day! he should have rushed home and started checking airports. He should have fired everyone in his administration

    All because an Alqaeda stiff botched his assignment and set his crotch on fire

    Yeah unionizing the TSA would have stopped all this, and we really need to have full body scans of elderly Asian women when the only real terrorist problem is young Muslims males

    Democrats: Man are they funny when they try to run things
