    That's because he knows.....someone has to take the Lead and since he can see BO doesn't have what it takes. He now fills the void. While at the same time.....letting the Terrorists know. Now we come for you and in the worse way. There will be no place they can hide. Of course in the UK.....they have people running around with ISIS flags and literature. Using their Free Speech laws.

    They will find out.....that's not going to work here in the US.

Then we have ISIL who has threatened to come after us if we didn't stop the airstrikes on them. We continued and now they are vocal and probing us.

    Last year BO did not set the Nation at the highest level. He didn't do so in 2012 and We lost an Ambassador in Libya. With the way things have been with our relations overseas. Should we take any chances this year? What say ye?
    A wise man once said "The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself." We already are at a much higher level of readiness than when Benghazi was attacked, or when the embassies were attacked during the Bush administration (though not on the 9/11 anniversary) which resulted in a much higher death toll. If we allow such fear of attacks by terrorists to drive us to ever-higher "states of readiness", then we are allowing the terrorists to play us like puppets on strings. And when does it go too far? When does "state of readiness" because of fear of terrorist attacks become indistinguishable from "police state"?

    The UK and US are about to get a dose of reality-terrorists are back and they have brought their friends.

    Those who have the inside scoop say we are in a pre-9/11 situation more now than well, 9/11.

    Y'know, it simply doesn't matter what Obama does. He could do everything exactly the way y'all want him to do it...and y'all would still call it wrong/evil/stupid/whatever. Why? Because he doesn't have an (R) behind his name. And how do we know this? Because when it comes to our homeland and our embassies overseas, Obama's got a heck of a lot better record than your boy Bush.

    And anyone who is comparing our current national security posture to what we had pre-9/11 is either epically naive or (more likely) being deliberately disingenuous with an agenda of their own. This is not to say that we can't be attacked - we can be attacked and we certainly WILL be attacked. It's only a matter of when. No matter how stringent our national security posture is, we WILL sooner or later be attacked. To make a nation attack-proof is for all practical purposes impossible.

    The only question is, can we draw that balance between having not enough security, having too much security, and not allowing terrorists to lead us by the nose by threatening attacks against us?

    And the sad thing is, it does't matter how stringent our security measures are, no matter how 'unfree' our lives become because of the FEAR of "well, there just might be a terrorist lurking around that there corner", if there's an attack during Obama's presidency, y'all will once more call for his impeachment, his head, his drawing-and-quartering....

    It isn't just the R's that are pointing out Obama's incompetence, some of the D's are making their voices heard in the House and Senate. When one realizes since 9/11 our corrupt visa program hasn't been reformed and now 6000 "questionable" students on expired visas can't be located during a time when the threats to this country have been ratcheted up to an all time high, that is sheer incompetence. When you have thousands of teenage boys with no papers walking across our porous borders, a border that was suppose to be secured with a fence that the funds had already been allocated since 2007 and the damn fence still hasn't been built under six years of Obama, that is sheer incompetence. When the very policies of this administration encourages illegals to come to this country without repercussions is absolutely feckless.
