One of the great things about President Harry S. Truman was his “The Buck Stops Here” philosophy.
But with President Barack Hussein Obama, passing the buck is the practice of the day, er . . . four-to-eight-year period. In his case, the buck stops underneath the bus, where he’s thrown so many bodies, he really needs–as I’ve said before–a Monster Truck (“Sunday, Sunday, Sunday”).
And since the Commander-in-Chief didn’t want to take credit for his boneheaded decision to allow Air Force planes to scare half of the Tri-State area into thinking we were under another 9/11-style terrorist attack, he does the usual: throws yet another guy under the bus. I posted video of this frightening scenario played out over the Manhattan skyline, earlier today.
Keep in mind that Barack Obama’s White House approved of this panic engendering stunt. And as Commander-in-Chief, he should have owned up and apologized. But that’s not the BHO way. He’s done so much throwing of people under the bus, it’s not just a Monster Truck he needs, it’s a sequel to “Throw Momma From the Train.” Throw Everyone Under the Bus.
A White House official tells ABC News that President Obama was “furious” to hear about the incident this morning when Air Force One and Air Force fighter jets appeared to be flying into the Manhattan skyline, scaring many New Yorkers into thinking they were about to face another terrorist attack.
An explanation was forthcoming in a mea culpa statement issued from the White House.
Um, it’s not a mea culpa, if there’s no “mea,” as in Barack. More like an “everyone but Baracka” culpa.
“Last week, I approved a mission over New York,” Louis Caldera, director of the White House military office, said. “I take responsibility for that decision. While federal authorities took the proper steps to notify state and local authorities in New York and New Jersey, it’s clear that the mission created confusion and disruption. I apologize and take responsibility for any distress that flight caused.”
When President Obama was told about the incident, he was “furious,” a White House official says.
Yeah, furious that he was so concerned with shaking the hand of his new mancrush, Hugo Chavez, that he didn’t pay attention to his own duties as Commander-in-Chief.
Caldera was called into a meeting with White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel and deputy chief of staff Jim Messina.
“It didn’t sound like a fun meeting,” the White House official says.
When will Barack Hussein Obama grow up and admit his mistakes? Don’t look for the snow to be falling in Hell anytime soon.
