    By a wide margin, Americans approve of how Obama has handled the Christmas failed terrorist attack.

    Terrorism

    CNN/Opinion Research 57 - 39

    CBSnews 57 - 29

    Once again, rightwing propaganda turns out to be more bark than bite.

    Actually it's left wing propaganda.
    Note that a wide majority want to see him tried in a military tribunal, despite the stilted wording of the question.

    No complaints from this conservative about how he handled it.

    Obama manned up to it and took ownership of the mistakes. Something Bush could never bring himself to do.

    My quick answer is that he didn't do anything (rash) and that is a good thing.

    One thing that I think he handled better than George Bush is that President Bush tried to enlist the American people into a tattle tale army to report their neighbors for so much as farting. He hasn't ripped the Constitution to shreds with a New and Improved "Patriot Act" either.

    Of course, 9/11/01 and Christmas Day 2009 were two completely different attacks especially in scope and damage.

    Really? This was after declaring it an isolated incident? Or in this statement?
    Oops, don't see any taking ownership of mistakes here. Don't see any mention of mistakes at all, actually.
    I do see a pledge to "find them and hold them accountable." Doesn't this sound like Bill Clinton?
