Well I need to :ranton: some on this. At Xmas we had a 'minor'??? terrorist attack on American soil, the President was on and stayed on vacation in Hawaii, and his head of the NCTC( National Counter-terrorism Center) Michael E. Leiter went on a six day ski trip just after the event. Where are the priorities. I guess I don't get it. Not until the Presidents latest speech did he actually say we are at 'war' with these terrorists, wow, what a relief I wasn't sure until now. Next one, are the Democrats cowards, Christopher Dodd and 2 more high ranking Dems leaving office this year, what a surprise, what, they don't want to be defeated at the polls in Nov. or is this a ploy of the DNC to remove the politicians that would be defeated outright because they will be the incumbent. Or, could it be that they want it to look like a new fresh Democratic face is here to save the day for America.:rantoff: I usually don't get into political :soapbox1: as you can see from my past replies and posts, but I couldn't help myself ths time.
