There have now been two recent terrorist attacks in the US, the last, an attempt to blow up an airliner on Christmas, failed. The Obama Administration has indicated that they do not consider the US to be in a war with the Jihadis, but rather consider terrorist attacks to be a criminal matter. This seems to be the case given that in the case of both attacks, the perpetrator had been identified as a potential threat, but for some reason the warning was ignored. The Obama Administration appears to have the attitude expressed by Kerry during the 2004 election that we should "just take the hits." In other words we should sacrifice people to avoid perception of infringement of the terrorist's Constitutional rights. Obama clearly thinks that Bush was too aggressive in acting to prevent terrorist attacks. The voters sided with Obama in 2008. If we experience a few more attacks, I wonder if voter opinion will change. The liberal Democrats will not change, but the Independents may.
