I don’t know why anyone ever wants to be President. At any rate, Sullivan is furious (FURIOUS!) no one is being fired in the wake of the failed bootiebomber attempt:
In the end, Obama is like Bush in this respect. In the struggle between citizenry and big government in ensuring basic competence, big government always wins, and always, always protects its own. Just as Obama has protected government officials who committed war crimes, he is protecting those who failed in basic responsibilities. This guarantees that reforms won’t work.
Change we can believe in? Nah. Just big government covering its own ass yet again. I guess we can merely be relieved that all the people who failed us were not given Medals of Freedom.
I’ll play. Who does Sullivan think should be fired? For what reason? He even seems to understand that systemic failures mean the SYSTEM failed. Had the review shown that individuals were the problem, they would not be changing the system, they would be firing the individuals. But they discovered it was a systemic failure, and, as such, they are engaging in a systemic overhaul.
And if he trots out that weak Napolitano shit because of an interview AFTER the damned attempt, I’m going to laugh. Look- the wingnuts spent the previous year claiming Obama was ruthless because of all the people he has thrown under the bus. Now, because he won’t fire someone for no reason, Sullivan is calling him just like Bush.
Again, I have no idea why anyone in their right mind wants to be President. All you do is work your ass off for insane hours every day and have to deal with poo flinging monkeys the entire time.
As an aside, as far as over-the-top hysterical posts go, this from Sullivan is almost good enough to be a template for all aspiring PUMA’s:
Just like Bush- check
sarcastic “change” reference- check
claiming to speak for the citizenry (hint- you are speaking for yourself)- check
If he could have thrown in something about “hope” and maybe invoked Hillary, it would have been a perfect work of performance art.

Why stop with a symbolic firing? I demand virgin sacrifices! Unless and until 5 virgins are thrown from the Washington monument, Obama is just like Bush. Bring me the head of Brennan’s first born!
