Huston suggests Obama wants a "big" terror attack so he can "show the world what a great president he could be"

Blog ››› ››› MEDIA MATTERS STAFF

In a September 21 Gateway Pundit post, Warner Todd Huston responded to President Obama's reported comment that "[w]e 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" by suggesting that Obama is "green with envy that Bush got that big moment" and that Obama wants "a big attack of his own" to "show the world what a great president he could be!"

From Huston's post:

Eh, don't worry, America. If there is another 9/11-like terror attack, The One says that we can "absorb it" and just become "stronger" because of it. It's as if he wants it to happen, or something!

In his latest book, Bob Woodward encountered a President Obama that seemed to casually blow off worry of another terror attack.

But somehow I can't escape the feeling that this flippancy comes from Obama's envy that George W.Bush got a "big event" to make his presidency while all Obama has gotten is a bad economy, massive job loss, and dissatisfaction at every level of society. No big disaster that he could make his nut on. Heck he even wasted the BP Oil spill with weeks of inactivity.

I can just see him, green with envy that Bush got that big moment. If ONLY Hussein could get a big attack of his own, why THEN he'd show the world what a great president he could be! If only we could "absorb" a big one like 9/11, eh Barrack? And we'd take it.... and take it....

Now, remember the old days when we had a president that was willing to take the fight to the terrorists? Now we have a president that is waiting to "absorb" attacks on us, HERE. And we take it...
