Time for Obama to Clean House

Wednesday, 24 Feb 2010 10:33 AM

By Andrea Tantaros

It's time for President Obama to clean house.

His overly ambitious, but largely tone-deaf, team of advisers has ruined his policies and his party. New reports show Obama in real danger when it comes to the public's belief that he should be reelected. And Democrats still manage to trail Republicans in almost every generic poll. Candidates up for reelection on the left are running scared, and the public is out for blood after a year of being force-fed bad policy.

Since Obama won't realistically step down himself, he must make some big changes if he hopes to reverse course. With all this talk about saving and creating jobs, here are positions that aren't worth rescuing: his terror team — for propagating the pre-9/11 law enforcement mentality.

Top counterterrorism aide John Brennan — for insisting there was "no smoking gun" after the Christmas Day incident despite the captured Kenyan's smoking underpants. Guys like Brennan think it's acceptable to lawyer up a radical in the hopes of cutting a deal.

His statement that criticizing the White House only emboldens al-Qaida was off base, and his belief that the 20 percent recidivism rate for terrorists released from Gitmo isn't "that bad" was from another galaxy. Unserious attitudes like his can get Americans killed.
