The System Worked
Picture from ABC News Nigerian Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab's charred underwear where he hid explosives.
The President’s unique understanding of muslim countries, coupled with his apparently unique understanding that “our future and our security is tied up with our ability to work with other countries in the world” will ultimately make Americans safer. I defy you to disprove that statement. It cannot be disproven.
It’s akin to the mythical “jobs saved” argument: “yeah, so unemployment exceeds 10 percent, but guess how many jobs would have been lost without the stimulus?”
You think this attempted bombing was bad, well guess how many terrorists acts were averted by our unique understanding of muslim nations? We changed their will with our understanding of muslim nations.
Then, they can trot out some economists to show that the President’s understanding of the world averted countless terrorists acts which would have otherwise taken place. If anyone questions them, the economists can dutifully apply the same mathematics used for the climate change models, and the media will acknowledge that the debate is settled.

It is very clear that Obama does not know what to do when he isn’t constantly being told how smart he is. The lower his poll numbers have gone, the more disassociated from reality he seems to be getting. We joke about TOTUS being the real speaker but today’s attempt at undoing the damage of the lapses of his administration were just pathetic.

He’s been told his entire life that he was special. Not just special but, like, ‘royally’ special. And people have bent rules, voided requirements, paid and appeased for him his entire life, such that, he exists today in some super-terrestial twilight, to borrow a phrase from a novelist.
