Obama Needed To End Vacation!

While it's true that everyone needs a vacation, even President Obama, after the near disaster of Christmas in which a young terrorist nearly took down a plane near Detroit, our President should've cut short his vacation in Hawaii. President Obama rightly stated yesterday in his second briefing in 2 days that the system failed in not targeting Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab as a potential terrorist. He's now set Thursday as a deadline for answers to how the system failed, but waiting nearly 3 days to respond to the near disaster and not leaving the family on vacation, and perhaps returning later is the real failure. Having talking heads making preposterous statements such as Janet Napolitano just isn't a good look Mr. President.

I don't necessarily think he should have cut his vacation short; but I do think that he should have spoken to the Nation first. That's what we expect from our President when disaster hits. And, he should have worn a tie! Just a tad bit too relaxed for me in the light of a failed terrorist attack.
