Put Up or Shut Up

So, it looks like President Obama is slightly perplexed, and will now have to re-think the plan to try terrorists in New York City. Either they are tragically naïve, or just plain dumb to not have realized that people were going to have a problem with having their city as a target, with terrorists in their midst for years, and having to shell out $200 million a year for security and all the other trappings that would go along with the dog and pony show it would turn into.

You gotta wonder whether the inmates are running the asylum when they keep making these bonehead moves, and false starts and stops on things. Makes them look wholly incompetent. Of course, these are the same people who can’t seem to vet people properly, without ending up with radical, weirdo, commie, perverts, as advisors and Czars. Or, the same people who can’t understand polls, or elections where a blue state like Massachusetts sends a Republican to the Senate - for the first time in decades - with a mandate to stop all the pending policy-generated legislation they thought would just sail through like crap through a goose.

And now it looks like they are shopping for another location, in anticipation of getting booted from New York City. Wow, that’s going to be a tough sell, eh? “Wanted, one willing city, or municipality, to host a multi-year show trial of radical Islamic terrorists. Must be willing to foot the bill for said trial to the tune of $200 million a year, and run the risk of becoming a target for international terrorists. Apply to the Attorney General of the United States if interested.”

Hey, I’ve got a novel idea – I get these now and then – how about President Obama have the trial in Washington, D.C.? They do have a Federal Court house there, last time I checked. And, it was one of the symbolic locations of the 9-11 attacks, if they really need the symbolism factor to sell it. I would have thought this would've been his first choice anyway, rather than NYC. I’m sure he could convince the people of the District of Columbia to go along with it. After all, they voted for him by a landslide in the 2008 Presidential election… so they deserve him. I’m sure they would welcome him, and his terrorists, with open arms. Time to put up or shut up, D.C.


  1. I know its not legal, but just move it to the supreme court near the white house, oops that's a big no, no. Seriously how about GITMO, and if that sticks in Obama's craw how about about a U.S. Naval carrier. Security is pre-paid at those sites.

  2. Yes, I like the idea of putting it on a Navy ship. Of course, that would make way too much sense.
