Democrats: Our Safety is Their Doormat

Home - by - December 27, 2009 - 22:36 America/New_York - 16 Comments

Compounding Janet Napolitano’s idiocy, Robert Gibbs today tried to pass the blame off on “guess who” once again? That’s right, George Bush. Gibbs, apparently never missing an opportunity to look like a defensive, childish wreck, said, “We have to review security procedures that are, as you know, several years old. Totally Bush’s fault! As if security procedures under George Bush allowed for someone on a watch list, with a bomb in his undies, to get on a flight.

You know what might help? If high profile Democrats didn’t feel as if they were entitled to disdain the rules themselves, making it harder for TSA and flight attendants to, you know, do their jobs. Senator Chuck Schumer not only feels an overbearing sense of entitlement, but he goes so far as to berate others for doing their job. Of course, he doesn’t really know what an actual job is.

Schumer and his seatmate, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), were chatting on their phones before takeoff when an announcement indicated that it was time to turn off the phones. Both senators kept talking. According to the GOP aide, a flight attendant then approached Schumer and told him the entire plane was waiting on him to shut down his phone.

Schumer asked if he could finish his conversation. When the flight attendant said “no,” Schumer ended his call but continued to argue his case. He said he was entitled to keep his phone on until the cabin door was closed. The flight attendant said he was obliged to turn it off whenever a flight attendant asked.

“He argued with her about the rule,” the source said. “She said she doesn’t make the rules, she just follows them.” When the flight attendant walked away, the witness says Schumer turned to Gillibrand and uttered the B-word.

Aren’t they supposed to be concerned with upholding the rules, put in place to protect us from risk, and not flouting them?

Useful idiots, indeed.

UPDATE: Bill writes -

Great graphic! But one slight correction. The other senator (who may as well just be a clone of Schumer based on her voting record in the Senate….so different from her record as a congresswoman) is Kirsten Gillibrand, not Kathy.

Oyyyy… I guess that part of the joke didn’t “land,” eh? The original graphic for American Thinker was specifically about NOW – how they weren’t stepping up to say anything about Schumer’s “bitch” comment. The rug had a big NOW on it. In that graphic Schumer calling her Kathy was part of the joke. I guess after switching it to the shameful disregard for TSA regulations, the Kathy quip makes little sense. I should have switched it. That, and the bolded NOW. Thank you, Bill. – bfh

    Yes, security procedures are several years old – put into place by Bush. Newsflash: Bush served 8 years and left office. It is now up to YOU to update security procedures.

    Democrats are scared to death that a terrorist incident will occur on their watch and Americans will blame them; thus, the reluctance to characterize anything less than Osama himself leading a charge against an airliner as a “terrorist incident.” And, in point of fact, with their politically correct panty waist culture, Americans would probably be right in blaming the Dems.

    Both these libtards are on my “THROW THE BUMBS OUT”
    list for 2010. They simply have to be voted out of office.

    Anyone who finds it necessary to blame Bush after 11 months of the current administration needs to be fired. Gosh, could that include the biggest baby of them all, obambie? If you can’t get your s–t together after this amount of time, you really have a problem with competence. I can’t help but believe that the leader-in-chief is an absolute moron (as I did last January) and incapable of dealing with reality and the rule of law. He has liberal, socialistic mental deficits running this country and he doesn’t seem to mind. (But then, since when has he even been in control, the damn puppet!!)

    The longer they keep blaming Bush, the more inept they look – if that’s even possible.

    Has The One even made a statement yet about the attempted Muslim terrorist suicide bombing, or is Gibbs covering for Him on that front as well?

    The most moronic thing imaginable — the new “safety” rules say that the passengers should stay in their seats for the last hour…

    Well, the freaking that saved everyone on this Detroit flight and Flight 93 was that passengers got OUT of their seats and tackled this Islamic scumbag….

    The one thing that saved the day and that’s what they want outlawed …Team Obama really wants us all killed by IslamoFascists; this absolutely clinches it.

    Democrats weak on security? Surely you jest. Appeasement and subjugation have not had time enough to work. Open borders and open arms, that’s my motto. Show the world that we care. That ought to work…right?

    See, timing is everything. Why wasn’t Schumer on that flight to Detroit, or the one to Salt Lake City, or the one to Phoenix. Passengers were up for grabs this weekend, even if some incidents were just false alarms.

    I think if he were, he’d be wiping more than his feet.

    Loretta in Indiana,
    I agree – I recently posted on Jawa;

    It is my opinion that this administration rubs their hands with glee at every terrorist incident. It gives them a plausible excuse (to them!)to further erode our freedoms.

    I can picture Chucky holding a roll of toilet paper instead of the doormat, and saying “wiping your ass….”

    The toilet paper either has the constitution printed on it, or maybe the tsa regs, or perhaps Maobowma’s state of union address.

    Funny, when I think of Schumer, or any lefty pol for that matter, I think ASSWIPE.

    Must be me….
