72 Hours with the Underpants Bomber

In another one of those obligatory "me too" posts on the Underpants Bomber who wanted to give everyone else a Melvin, I thought I'd chime in with some overlong tract, bloviating about how the dithering of this administration allowed this scumbag to be treated as a criminal instead of a terrorist. However, The Architect spends almost eight minutes deconstructing the Obama administration's failure to act decisively.



I like Rove's repeated referral to this guy as being treated like some criminal "who just knocked over a 7-11". I hope Karl doesn't get tagged by the administration or its lefty-Louie followers as being RA-A-A-A-C-I-S-T because 7-11's are largely owned and managed by Muslims..

..except, of course, in Maryland, where Joe Biden thinks they are run by Indians.


Obligatory Adjunctive Commentary: O.K., I cannot let a good crisis go to waste. Where have we seen this scenario play out before? Why, of course! It was back in August 2008 in the heat of the presidential race. Russia chose that time to overrun Georgia and The Pantload - once he was briefed that it was the former Soviet satellite nation and not the state between South Carolina and Florida - shuffled out in the midst of yet another vacation and, blinking in the bright Hawaiian sunlight, proceeded to pontificate to the assembled knee-pad media. As ABC reported it:
Obama also condemned the Russian invasion. But he cast a wider net for advice -- including Hadley, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, and his foreign policy advisors. When he spoke, he was characteristically circumspect.

"I think it is important at this point for all sides to show restraint and to stop this armed conflict," Obama said. The candidates' responses reveal a stark difference in governing style, and both seem carefully calibrated to appeal to American voters.
Of course, we all come to recognize two things now: the press will do anything to give this clown a pass and here was the first green shoots of a habit he has of dithering, triangulating, and otherwise voting present as he had done so many times in the past.

The picture above? yes, that's our beloved Pantload-in-Chief on vacation carrying - what? - an important tome on world politics, economics, or military strategy? Naw, it's just the latest Harry Potter book. Hat tip to HillBuzz for this. You owe it to yourself to go over there and check out that post. They have a raging controversy about the scar on Obama's head. Past brain surgery or what?

It's really creepy!
