Obama Gets “F” For Failing To Protect U.S. From Bio-Terror
President Obama’s failure as POTUS is now documented by a bipartison commission. In an article published today on Fox News, Judith Miller writes:
In a 19-page report card being published Tuesday, the Commission on the Prevention of Weapons of Mass Destruction, Proliferation and Terrorism, chaired by former Senators Bob Graham, a Democrat from Florida, and Jim Talent, a Missouri Republican, gives the new administration the grade of “F” for failing to take key steps the commission outlined just over a year ago in its initial report.
Say, isn’t that a rather important part of his job? Maybe if he wasn’t spending so much time:
- Picking Czars and Czardines in order to bypass those pesky Senate confirmation hearings
- Trying to spend us into oblivion with a pork-riddled stimulus package nobody read before signing
- Nationalizing banks and automakers
- Scheming behind closed doors how to force-feed us a Health Care Reform program the vast majority don’t want
- Attempting to shove Cap and Trade down our throats
- Traveling around the world embarassing us with the SAY WHAT tour (Symbolic All-Year World Healing Apology Tour)
- Reminding us in speech after speech that it’s not about him…
…perhaps he’d have had time to follow the recommendations that were provided to him last year:
Specifically, the commission concludes that the Obama administration… has failed to pay consistent and urgent attention to increasing the nation’s ability to respond quickly and effectively to a germ attack that would inflict massive casualties on the nation.
In fairness, the commission faults the past three administrations (Both Bush administrations and the Clinton Administration) for having “failed to pay consistent and urgent attention to increasing the nation’s ability to respond quickly and effectively to a germ attack that would inflict massive casualties on the nation.”
But Obama’s administration was the first to have the benefit of a report with recommendations to be followed. None of the recommendations were acted on.
In, perhaps, the most chilling condemnation of the report, the commission states:
“[U]nless nations acted decisively and urgently, it was more likely than not that a WMD will be used in a terrorist attack somewhere in the world by the end of 2013, and that the terrorists’ weapon of choice would be biological, rather than nuclear.”
The commission cited how the Obama administration’s delayed response to the H1N1 virus demonstrated that the U.S. was “woefully behind in its ability to rapidly produce rapidly vaccines and therapeutics, essential steps for adequately responding to a biological threat, whether natural or man-made.”
The report also mentioned that, even though Obama’s administration had time to prepare, the epidemic peaked “before most Americans had access to vaccine.” Considering that a bio-terrorist attack would likely provide no warning, this is not very comforting.
I doubt we’ll hear POTUS address this during his State of the Union message.
Several days ago, while addressing a jobs and economic town hall meeting in Elyria, Ohio, President Obama insisted, ‘It’s not about me, folks…” as he repeatedly referred to himself throughout what amounted to just another empty campaign speech.
Well, when it comes to failing to protect our country, it IS about you, Mr. President. Read the report. And this is one failure you can’t try to palm off on George W. Bush. That dog just won’t hunt anymore.
This report is all about you, Mr. President.
