Obama Spikes the Ball More Than Ickey Woods

May 24, 2013

From the President's big speech on terrorism yesterday:

Today, Osama bin Laden is dead, and so are most of his top lieutenants. There have been no large-scale attacks on the United States, and our homeland is more secure. Fewer of our troops are in harm's way, and over the next 19 months they will continue to come home. Our alliances are strong, and so is our standing in the world. In sum, we are safer because of our efforts.

Again with the Osama bin Laden is dead. Really, that's all he has?

And then there's this vomit-inducing rhetoric:

There have been no large-scale attacks on the United States, and our homeland is more secure.

Please, Mr. President, enlighten us: how many have to die or suffer injury in an attack to elevate it to "large-scale" status?

But don't answer me. Direct your response to Jane Richard and her family. Jane is the seven-year-old sister of Martin, the eight-year-old killed in the small-scale Boston Marathon bombing. Jane was relesased from the hospital yesterday after 39 days and 12 surgeries. Additionally, close to 300 people were wounded during this small-scale attack. Tell them why Boston was small-scale. You owe it to them.

We want a president, but what we get is this:

Stop spiking the football on that OBL touchdown of yours (and by yours, I mean the one performed by a group of American warriors who were carrying out the raid while you were golfing) and start taking responsibility for your administration's terrorism failures in Boston and Benghazi.
