Barr and O’Reilly throwdown over criticism of Obama

Bob Barr was on The O’Reilly Factor last night to the debate the pompous host of the show on conservatives’ reaction to the Christmas Day attempted terrorist attack.

In his recent column, Barr wrote:

The criticism has included such childishness as blasting Obama for waiting a few days before making a national speech on the incident.  For heaven’s sake, the president was briefed on the incident from the moment it occured; he made statements almost immediately indicating his concern and that he was being regularly briefed; he took time to gather the facts and meet with his national security team; and then he appeared publicly to give a rational, measured, but hard-hitting response.  And for this, a former vice president criticizes him.

Barr blames it all on partianship, and he is right for the most part. I do think the failures of TSA need to be brought to light and fixed. However, we do not fix these problems by having a knee-jerk reaction and violating more civil liberties.

Here is video of Barr on the show:
