Thought for the Day - Giuliani's impact on the terror debate

Richard Cohen, WaPo "centrist" editorialist:
There is almost nothing the Obama administration does regarding terrorism that makes me feel safer....

...because that is what we should all be concerned about, feeling safer.

And, that's not the only incidence of idiocy in the piece. It ends,
But the paramount civil liberty is a sense of security and this, sad to say, has eroded under Barack Obama.

Cohen apparently prefers a President who talks tough and does the wrong things, and, judging by his Iraq editorials, will happily follow that kind of President right off a cliff.

That is so f***ed up.


  • But this so perfectly reflects the intellectual, civic maturity of the American public...

    At this point we're simply manipulated by marketing and emotion. The American experiment is over... or at least on hiatus for the time being -- as amoral money-men game the system to line their pockets.

  • What particularly galled me was the invocation of "sense of security" as the primary civil right, above speech, religion, etc.

  • I don't think Mr.Cohen will ever have enough security.

  • More people died under Bush from terror attacks than Obama, yet somehow Cohen felt more secure under Bush?

  • Anon, it's this bizarre willing ignorance of real risk. The odds any individual would be killed are incredibly small.

    We didn't create an anti-drunk driving security state, and your odds of dying are better.


    Lew, don't you remember the rules? Bush gets a pass because "nobody could have foreseen....?"
