The fecklessness of President Obama's appointment of the laughable Janet Napolitano as the Director of Homeland Security hasn't cost us a tragedy...yet. Her clueless pronouncement yesterday that the "system worked" in near-miss attempted bombing of a flight into Detroit on Christmas day has been too much even for Obama's cheerleaders in the media to swallow.
I had the misfortune of living under her misrule when she was governor of Arizona. The fact that such a textbook example of the Peter Principle could be elevated to such a critical position simply underlines the lack of seriousness with which President Obama approaches the threats we face in the world. They still don't get it--there are people out there who want to kill us, and they aren't going to stop just because we're nicer to them.
And it's worth mentioning again that for all of his failings, President Bush took the job of protecting America seriously. He may have put an idiot in charge of FEMA, but not DHS. I think we're going to miss him a lot more before the current four year Presidential term is over.
