On Obama and Counter-terrorism

I recently read this article on http://abcnews.go.com/print?id=9502973. This is merely a response to the news on it.

So according to this, President Obama is resolving to take more personal responsibility and hold his administration more accountable with fighting terrorism. I applaud him for saying that and think that's a good idea. That's the kind of thing we want him to succeed at, not fail.

However, I am worried that like so many times before that this is merely posturing in the wake of recent events. Actions speak louder than words, and our President unfortunately is pissing off us conservatives with his leftist rhetoric and weak action on the international stage, and (from what I can understand) the liberal activists who got him elected for his lack of action on their to-do list.

If he really means what he says in this speech, all the better. If not, shame on him and one less reason for reelection.
