    Too busy campaigning for ACA. Wasn't in attendance when the rest of his administration met on this terror issue. Nothing new, please look elsewhere for a leader!

    It's Great to be a Florida Gator!

    Could be that Obama doesn't feel that it would be prudent to disclose classified information involving sources and methods.

    Could be that giving max pub to terrorists for threats is considered bad strategy. Besides, didn't the WH change the drapes to "putty", indicating "sever threat" .... or is it "champagne"? This is where gays could really help on national security.

    glad Obama isn't playing the 'terrorist level game' that GWB did. Suggest you look back at times GWB raised the alert level---they all corresponded to times he was taking hard PR hits regarding one issue or another. And GWB jacked up the terrorist alert level to blow smoke in America's face and divert their attention from GWB. Funny thing is, not once did GWB increase the terrorist alert level when his favorability was on the rise

    Actually, most of the AQ leadership is presently unable to run, what with being dead and all.

    More cowbells! More drones!

    Interesting how he has conditioned his minions to give him a pass on his total lack of leadership- the threat is out there- it is too bad the guy who is supposed to be our prez does not feel either the need or the desire to calm the natives and keep us informed as to what the threats are and what we are doing about them- but the ........ Does have time to appear on late night TV

    What a wonderful leader

    He's not? Really? The worst terrorist threat since 9/11? Big on hyperbole little on substance.

    The level threat game you describe was initiated for no other reason than to get the nation to wake up to the severity of the situation. Got them in the game sort of speak. How quickly we forget the environment we were playing in 2001-2005. I had friends in the " business". We weren't winning. As a matter of fact they were scared because we knew close to nothing. As the threat came under control, the stupid index went away. I saw no correlation between the index and Bush's popularity. If that were the case, we would be have been on hot red in 2007-08.

    Would you guys get your stories straight? Actually, having at least one that makes sense would help.

    I have a question. Has any other sitting president gone on late night comedy/variety shows as much as this one? WTF is he doing on Leno's show? Because that's a serious forum for serious topics of the day???

    His voters are far more tuned in to the entertainment world (Idol, Jersey Shore, Conan, Letterman, Housewives) than jobs, debt, terrorism, tax reform. He's playing to his base...the clueless.
