Fast forward to the present day and you’ll find those same republicans griping about how the Obama administration isn’t doing enough in the area of security. The bomber was caught be a vigilant citizenry which is the only real defense in these cases.

Obama is working to correct the problems that allowed this man to slip by security. That’s a whole lot more than the Bush administration did after Sep 11.

No one died in this incident. Compare that to the results foolish wars waged by the past administration. And Obama doesn’t need to wire tap citizens to get the job done either. Solving real problems is what our leaders were elected for. But instead they only create them.

They want to take credit for everything that doesn’t break down right away. And they want to blame everyone when things go wrong. But NEVER do they actively seek to solve problems. They just want to pretend they do.
