Those, the completely contradictory and inexplicable words of movie gangster Tony "Scarface" Montana, immediately came to mind for me as we watched Obama's handpicked Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, try to put a positive spin this past weekend on the attempted destruction of a U.S. airliner by a Nigerian jihadist, only to do a complete about-face today.
First Napolitano crowed that "the system worked" -- couched in weasel words about "once the incident occurred." That was her weekend statement. Everything's Rosey! Then Monday, she admitted that "the system failed miserably" in preventing the jihadist from boarding the plane with an explosive. At the same time, she completely insults all of our intelligence by claiming that she was just "taken out of context" over the weekend, because what she was saying is that "the system" actually worked wonderfully, but only "once the incident occurred." Funny that there was no mention over the weekend how it also "failed miserably" in the first place in permitting "the incident" to occur -- a fact she was forced to admit in the face of questioning today from NBC's Matt Lauer -- a democrat party hack who had to hate having to ask Napolitan about this.
Let's get down to brass tacks: Napolitano went out there this weekend trying to put a positive spin on an almost deadly situation. There was nothing "out of context" about that. Other Obama minions were out there trying to blame Bush for "the incident" (very predictably), which itself is utterly disingenuous on its face -- If the Bush era procedures in place were so awful, then why did the Obama regime fail to ever conduct any review and overhaul of those procedures upon his taking office a full disastrous year ago?
And a final point: You'll recall this Napolitano being good for at least one utterly moronic statement per day during the early days of the Obama regime (the first few months). There's been very little of that since, because quite frankly the Obama minions have wisely and artfully kept Big Jan under wraps, with a muzzle tightly in place. But that being said, it begs the question of Obama's decision in the first instance to appoint such an incompetent to this extremely critical post in our federal government. She should have been canned in March, but yet Obama allows her to hang around. And for obvious reasons, since her firing would reflect poorly on Obama's decision in the first place -- Nevermind that this Napolitano individual is incompetent and detrimental to the country in that she heads up a vital government agency tasked with keeping us all safe. I swear, the absolute lunacy of this Obama regime is rivaled only by that of the W regime. Folks, we deserve so much better as Americans than these types of assclowns. Let's insist upon it during upcoming election cycles.
