I saw this one over at HuffPo and had to share it. It seems that Al Qaeda and the GOP have something in common--they both want to complain about the "unfair" press coverage Obama is receiving around the world.Meteor Blades complains about President-Elect's Obama's decision to retain Robert Gates as Secretary of Defense:
More fuel for the belief that even Democrats think Democrats are weak on defense and only Republicans can serve as Secretary of Defense. If Gates stays the full four years, it would mean that from 1953-2013, a Republican will have held the SecDef post for 51 1/2 of 60 years.Meanwhile, the Federal government (the post-9/11 one created by "eight years of George Bush's failed policies") is prosecuting a group of Muslim men who were training in the United States for an attack on US military personnel (and their DoD civilian counterparts) at Fort Dix, New Jersey:
Somehow, comparing Republicans to Islamofascist terrorists and complaining about a SecDef who has been strong and wise as a national defense leader seem stupid after watching that video.
Happy Thanksgiving anyway.
