Obama differentiates himself from Bush’s tough on terror stance
Rep. Tom Rooney, R-Fla., says President Obama’s response to the terrorist attacks on Fort Hood and the airplane headed to Detroit is irresponsible.
The congressman serves on the House Armed Services Committee’s subcommittee on terrorism.
“There wasn’t the sense of concern, urgency and just horror at what happened in both situations,” he told Kathleen Walter of Newsmax.TV.
“One of the things the president is trying to do is distance himself from the reputation the Bush administration had as being ultra tough on terrorism.”
