My father always said if you have an employee who thinks they are indispensable, fire ‘em before they ruin your business. It looks like Obama needs to can McCrystal. Sorry, but I’m taking Obama’s side here. He is the Commander-in-Chief, no matter how we dislike it. You don’t show this amount of disrespect and not expect to be job hunting in the very near future.
The man voted for Obama! He now apparently is pitting Hillary against Obama.
The Pink Flamingo has made no secret of the fact that I am far from thin. This said, I must also admit that I have a very real addiction problem. I love cheese enchiladas. I don’t want much on them, just a little red and a heck of a lot of salsa. I want cheddar cheese, That’s it. Contrary to how terribly sinful it sounds, it isn’t that bad. I don’t do sour cream, and I can’t stand green sauce, which is made with chicken fat. Now that’s nasty. Three cheese enchiladas, plain have about 450 calories. That’s not bad. It’s not fried, has very little salt, the cheese is protein, and the corn tortillas are not bad for you.
Since the dawn of the new cooking oils (saffron, sunflower, canola) I have developed some very serious food allergies, to the point where I’m at the throat closing, can’t breath, nearly pass out stage. These allergies never bothered me before it was determined that “we” needed to be doing healthy oils. I have a serious sunflower allergy, and many of these oils are made in the same presses.

The Pink Flamingo has repeatedly this week stated that something about this attempted man made disaster just doesn’t pass the smell test. First, we learn that the CIA has been tracking our little bomber for months. Then we learn that a smartly dressed Pakistani helped Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab on to the plane. This is about an Administration who is incapable of connecting the dots on Terror.
There is one question The Pink Flamingo wants to ask. Is it possible Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab had help getting on those planes. I’m not talking “little help” but someone in a position of a little bit of power who let this guy get through check-points? Right now the Obama Administration is looking like a bunch of Keystone Cops. There goes that Smell Test.
Who let this kid slip through dogs, scans, check-lists, etc with a bomb?
Do you really think an alienated, depressed, possibly suicidal young man could slip through security without some “inside” assistance?
While we are are asking questions, perhaps it is time to suspend the religious rhetoric and get back to some basics. Look at the guy’s profile:
Umm….where have we seen these characteristics before? Want to be a little bit honest here? Like The Pink Flamingo says, dump the religious angle. We’re dealing with the same personality profile as two young men who destroyed a school in Colorado. It is the same profile of a young man who goes on a rampage on a college campus in Virginia.
The only difference – this time the father tried to warn authorities that his son was up to no good.
What if we are dealing with some truly evil master minds who are manipulating disturbed, obsessed, depressed, alienated, and possibly suicidal young men into doing something for their “religion”?
Which is more frightening?
We think the implications of Islamic terror are horrifying, but what if there are much greater implications – an entire generation of young men, the world over, who have the same profile, irregardless of religion?
Jasper Schuringa knows more about fighting terror than Barack Obama. And – it is paying off for him, which it should!
Are we feeling better now that Obama is in office?
On Christmas Day, Barack Obama was not notified of a terror attempt for three hours. In an attempt to prove that he could react when necessary, he brought the state of Hawaii to a hault in order to get back to the estate where he is vacatining. Earlier on Monday, Barack Obama, in what was an obvious attempt to avoid a potential lawsuit, fled his golf game (he has played more in one year than GWB did in 8 years) to check on some little kid who managed to get hurt while obviously playing with his kids. One wonders just how much money this emergency motorcade cost the be-leaguered American taxpayer, but then it is rather obvious that America’s very own POTUS version of Barney Fife doesn’t give a damn about the taxpayer.
Barney Fife and the Constitution of the United States of America. Yea, it reminds The Pink Flamingo of Barack Obama, too. Hugh Hewitt has a litany of The Barney Fife Presidency’s Failures – which are legion.
What if ….
Suppose the Obama Administration needed a diversion to take the collective conservative mind off health care ….
Is this a connect the dots or just a perfect storm for the Dems in that health care has been pushed out of the headlines?
Did a second attempt occur on the 27th? Same flight, same nationality?
The Pink Flamingo wants to know just when TSA is going to demand men remove their underwear before boarding a plane. If they really want to crack down on the latest version of getting a bomb on a plane, then they should require the removal of all underwear along with shoes when going through a security check-point. How absurd is this going to get before people do what I do and absolute refuse to fly? The good news is that Napolitano (the former AZ governor who left the state in such an abject mess) says things worked just hunky dory!
Why the heck did it take THREE hours to tell Obama that an incident had occurred? Why is he getting a pass from the media while golfing so darn much? Think about G. H. W. Bush and his vacation. Think about GWB and his time off. Obama works so hard….he needs a break!
Was there a specific reason for the timing? I don’t know about you, but The Pink Flamingo is beginning to think this is also about a spoiled brat monster who wants to stick it to his family and his people. Don’t ever discount the idea that this guy wanted to humiliate his family. The timing of the incident and the timing of the Nigerian ethnic meetings over the weekend is just too precious to deny.
The Real Barack Obama has picked up The Pink Flamingo Part One of The Smell Test and added quite a bit. It is a must read! (Thanks SV!) The Pink Flamingo would like to remind readers about an alleged plot in Kenya to assassinate Hillary Clinton, a plot yet to be confirmed or denied. It just makes a person wonder about a few things – how Obama ignored this one too.
