Wake Up Mr. President

Wanted to share this excerpt from a good column on the botched Christmas day terror attack, by Toby Harnden of the U.K.'s "Daily Telegraph"...

"In his studied desire to be the unBush by responding coolly to events like this, Obama is dangerously close to failing as a leader. Yes, it is good not to shoot from the hip and make broad assertions without the facts. But Obama took three days before speaking to the American people, emerging on Monday in between golf and tennis games in Hawaii to deliver a rather tepid address that significantly underplayed what happened. He described Abdulmutallab as an “isolated extremist” who “allegedly tried to ignite an explosive device on his body” – phrases that indicate a legalistic, downplaying approach that alarms rather than reassures...  In the meantime, he went snorkelling."

Mr. President, this is infuriating.  Wake up!  Do your job, and act like you give a care about protecting the American people.  300 people almost died on Christmas day.  What's it going to take?
