Well this is scary. According to the Washington Post, Bob Woodwad says in his new book that President Obama said this to him in an interview last July:
"We can absorb a terrorist attack. We'll do everything we can to prevent it, but even a 9/11, even the biggest attack ever . . . we absorbed it and we are stronger."
We can "absorb" one? What am I a sponge?
Stronger now? Is he recommending we do it again?
Even if he is factually correct that we would bounce back from one, is this the right attitude for a President?
I can give a President a pass if his attitude was "Never again!" but the terroists made it past him.
Not so much if his attitude was, "We can absorb it."
That really cheapens life.
