Today, while visiting the National Counterterrorism Center in Virginia, President Obama declared there is “no specific and credible threat” to the homeland this holiday season.
President Obama also said there was “no specific and credible threat” to the homeland back on November 24th, shortly before Thanksgiving.
Eight days later, 14 people were murdered at an office Christmas party in San Bernardino, California by two devotees of ISIS.
So please forgive me when I say that I don’t believe President Obama when he says there is “no specific and credible threat” to the United States.
On the question of national security, nothing President Obama has said or done before or since San Bernardino inspires my confidence and I know I am far from alone.
When the President of the United States cannot back up his words while at the same time talking down to the people he represents one too many times, we are bound to tune him out.
Obama will begin a 16-day Christmas vacation tomorrow. We may complain about his propensity for playing golf, but with the way things are going, we are better off with Barack Obama standing at the 9th hole of a golf course in Kaneohe rather than sitting in the Oval Office in DC. In 400 days, he will no longer reside at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and can play all the golf he wants. Those 400 days cannot come soon enough even if the alternatives aren’t much better.
