Spin, Baybee, Spin!

Get this: The Press were shills for Dubya and are picking on The One unfairly.

No, really. Stop laughing. It's true. It's true, you damned, dirty apes!

Eight years ago, a terrorist bomber’s attempt to blow up a transatlantic airliner was thwarted by a group of passengers, an incident that revealed some gaping holes in airline security just a few months after the attacks of Sept. 11. But it was six days before President George W. Bush, then on vacation, made any public remarks about the so-called shoe bomber, Richard Reid, and there were virtually no complaints from the press or any opposition Democrats that his response was sluggish or inadequate.

That stands in sharp contrast to the withering criticism President Barack Obama has received from Republicans and some in the press for his reaction to Friday’s incident on a Northwest Airlines flight heading for Detroit.

You know why, of course. Any criticism of Dubya would have elicited a visit by trenchcoat-clad goons in the night. We all know how many Undesirables were shipped off to the Dick Cheney Reeducation Camp during his regime.

On the other hand, The One - ahem, eight years later and, apparently not, wiser - is still busy distributing unicorns, and shouldn't be taken to task for his late response, however tardy or fluffy it might be.
