This morning on CNN Tom Kean, former member of the 9/11 commission, was talking about how Obama is “taking on to much”, echoing the same right-wing talking point we have heard all year.
Let’s think about that. To a Republican like Kean, Obama shouldn’t be focusing on other things besides terrorism. We just had 8 years of that and look at what it produced – an economic crisis, the loss of a major city and hundreds of lives from Katrina, ignoring our rule of law to “fight terrorism”, etc., etc. If people think that the President should focus solely on terrorism and nothing else, like domestic issues, then let’s just hand this country over to al Qaeda because they have won.
