Obama wants to go down with the TSA ship — time to make him

Latest word from President Obama:

<blockquote>

At this point, the Transportation Security Administration, in consultation with our counter-terrorism experts, have indicated to me that the procedures that they've been putting in place are the only ones right now that they consider to be effective against the kind of threat that we saw in the Christmas Day bombing.

How about actually adding terrorists' names to the terror watch list when their activities are reported? That would have prevented last year's Christmas Day bombing. And it seems much more “effective” than molesting all of us and our children.

If Obama wants to go down with the TSA ship, the new Republican House should make him. It's time for reform — let him veto it and pay the price.
