"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Prescient, If I Say So Myself

On the morning of 9/11, if you glance a few posts down on the Regular Guy Believes, I had this to say about Obama's failure to attend the majority of his daily intelligence briefings:

What does it say then about President Obama's seriousness as a leader and as Commander-in-Chief that he's missed so many of his daily briefings?   What if an attack happened now?   How would the MSM spin Obama's golf-playing and fund-raising and ESPN-watching if thousands of Americans died?

Well, it wasn't thousands of Americans, but four, including our ambassador, who died in Libya later that same day.   And now we know how the MSM would spin it... they would make the story about the campaign and Romney's supposed "gaffe" at commenting on the episode.

Disgraceful.   And that goes for both Obama's feckless foreign policy and the mainstream media's shameless cheerleading for the Obama campaign.
