I only caught a smidgen of his press conference today, but I have to say, based on what I did see, that I have never seen such a shameless whine of "it's not my fault" from anyone who purports to be a chief executive. It sounded like a teenager rationalizing a bad test grade to a parent. Pathetic.
The man is not up to the job, but his minions did us all a favor by coining the phrase "leading from behind," because that's what Obama's been doing since Inauguration Day. If he gets reelected, the United States is in grave danger.

This sort of thing is right out of a WWII-era movie about the Nazis.
I agree with Glenn Reynolds that police should be strictly liable for damage and injuries they cause in the course of these raids. There are only a few kinds of cases in which these tactics are justified. The rest of the time I think it's just macho cops trying to imitate TV, and the police action violates the Fourth Amendment proscription against unreasonable searches and seizures. I say this as a guy who generally sides with law enforcement.
