Obama blasts critics

“It is not time for partisanship, it is time for citizenship,” said President Obama during a 12-minute speech on the security lapses resulting from the Christmas bombing attempt aboard a Northwest Airlines jet in Michigan.

Without naming names, he clearly was aiming his latter comments at former Vice President Dick Cheney, who has found a way to criticize and lead a partisan wave of attacks against the president during a time of war.

It’s too bad that we can’t get back to what we had in the months after 9/11, a country that was working together, not trying to destory each other from within. I agree with Obama, but of course wonder if his words will have any impact.

About Steve Scauzillo

I love journalism. I've been working in journalism for 32 years. I love communicating and now, that includes writing about environment, transportation and the foothill/Puente Hills communities of Hacienda Heights, Rowland Heights, Walnut and Diamond Bar. I write a couple of columns, one on fridays in Opinion and the other, The Green Way, in the main news section. Send me ideas for stories. Or comments. I was opinion page editor for 12 years so I enjoy a good opinion now and then.
