I hope you felt safe on the anniversary of 9/11. I know I did. And for that I have to thank about 500,000 dedicated national security professionals, reservists, regular airman, sailors and soldiers.

Some we now know were not so lucky.

That's because the actual count was 500,000 national security pros minus one amateur.

The amateur has been missing more often than not.

While our defense/intelligence community has been fighting the wars on terrorists, America’s been at the mall.

And the amateur? He has been busy taking out a $5 trillion mortgage for a remodeling project he favors in the US of A. Oh, and raising money for his reelection campaign.

Obama- yes, that amateur- the guy who thinks the constitution should force us to accept anything the federal government is willing to give a grateful citizenry? THAT Obama has ignored his one undisputed constitutional duty as commander in chief by skipping his daily intelligence briefings 62 percent of the time this year, according to Marc A. Thiessen, a scholar at the American Enterprise Institute.
