Obama shoulders responsibility

Whatever you may think about President Obama's handling of the economy, foreign relations, or the war on terror, yesterday he stepped up to the plate and acted like a leader. He gave a broad outline (which was all he should have given) of what went wrong and what will be done to fix the problems. And that's where it gets sticky. I've been doing a little research on those handy-dandy full-body scanners that everyone's talking about, and I like the idea of using them less now than I did before. In a couple of days I'll go into some of the problems with them. But aside from the full body scanners, it looks like President Obama is taking this threat to our security seriously now and taking real steps to keep us safe from external threats.  That is his primary job as President.
