(CNN) – Interesting how much President Obama sounds a bit like President Bush. Immediately, the president went to 9/11 at top of speech, talking about threat from al-Qaeda.
'A bit'??? You have been misunderestimated the comparison!!! It is so clear they are the same guy: Bush third term continues.
No kidding! Now that Obama is actually privy to ALL the info. that the Commander in Chief receives, he understands the threat al-Qaeda poses to the US and the world. It is easy to criticize when you don't have all the information, but when you have the info. and the responsibility to make the judgement calls on what to do, things change. Maybe Bush wasn't so wrong about all this at the start, even though he did get off track later with Iraq. You don't let people destroy The World Trade Center and do nothing about it.
Obama noted that the threat isn't entirely gone. We are still being threatened by these people because they don't like the fact that we are tolerant. I like my accepting society. If they can't handle freedom of the press, expression, speech, and religion, then they can hide in their caves. These people think that they must force their will on others like the Neo-cons (you can't force a democratic government on people).
