We Are Being Governed By Children

Lying, petty, hypocritical, finger-pointing children who do not have grown up priorities.

Oh. My. Gosh.

On December 26, two days after Nigerian Omar Abdulmutallab allegedly attempted to use underwear packed with plastic explosives to blow up the Amsterdam-to-Detroit flight he was on, and as it became clear internally that the Administration had suffered perhaps its most embarrassing failure in the area of national security, senior Obama White House aides, including chief of staff Rahm Emanuel, David Axelrod and new White House counsel Robert Bauer, ordered staff to begin researching similar breakdowns — if any — from the Bush Administration.

Let that sink in…instead of treating the issue as a national security problem, their first instinct was to treat it as a political one.

I was just saying the other day, after Gibbs played the (by now fully expected, and unsurprising) “blame Bush” card:


They still have no idea how petty and small this makes them look?

Apparently not.

The idea was that we’d show that the Bush Administration had had far worse missteps than we ever could,” says a staffer in the counsel’s office. “We were told that classified material involving anything related to al Qaeda operating in Yemen or Nigeria was fair game and that we’d declassify it if necessary.”

The White House, according to the source, is in full defensive spin mode.

This is via the Prowler, mind you, which also notes that David Axelrod sits in on national security briefings with the President, something political advisers, like Karl Rove, traditionally have not done.

I understand the disgust with Napolitano, but why would Obama fire her if this is in fact his own policy she’s echoing?

Just sayin’, just sayin’, just sayin’.
