they're lining them up
so anyway, I'm sure you've seen the quote from Bob Woodward's new book on President Obama:
"We can absorb a terrorist attack. We'll do everything we can to prevent it, but even a 9/11, even the biggest attack ever . . . we absorbed it and we are stronger." - B.H.ObamaAce
is spot on in his post on the subject (RTWT
".....The Obama and the leftist media will attempt to spin this as merely descriptive, and as a tribute to America's resiliency. After all -- we did survive 9/11, didn't we?.....But the left is pushing this idea that we can safely "absorb" many new 9/11's with an eye towards getting us to "accept" the greater bargain they fatuously offer -- peace, and a general wind-down of post-9/11 security "overreactions"....."
I had a different thought when I first read the President's quote: the Obama administration knows, with some degree of certainty, that there will soon be another terrorist attack on American soil. They're just greasing the skids, pre-spinning the eventuality.
This is tangential to another topic that I've been mulling over for the past six weeks or so: When does the Obama administration declare martial law?
Before the mid-terms, right after the mid-terms, or right before the new Congress is seated in January 2011?
The mid-terms are approaching, and everyday it looks more and more like the Democrats are going to suffer losses of Biblical proportions. Practically nothing can stop the conservative juggernaut, barring some ginormous event that changes the game; something that could be used as the reasoning for imposing martial law and suspending the elections (or not seating the new Congress).
My original thinking was that there would be a "border incident" with Mexico (I know, there are horrific border incidents every freakin' day, but I mean a really big, egregious incident) but that would be a political loser for the Obama administration, as they are on the wrong side of the border security issue.
Crazy talk? Think about it. Think about how the health care "reform" became law. Is there anything that you would put past this administration?
Remember, this is an administration who's governing philosophy was summed up by President Obama's Chief of Staff Rahm Emanual: “You don’t ever want a crisis to go to waste; it’s an opportunity to do important things that you would otherwise avoid.”
"We can absorb a terrorist attack."
Think about it. This material will be covered on your mid-term exam. thatisall
