More Republican Scare Tactics

They’re cranking up the fear machine to “11”:

Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-MI) is ramping up his campaign to use the Fort Hood shootings to paint the Obama administration as soft on terrorism.

At a press conference today, where he was joined by several GOP colleagues, Hoekstra, the ranking Republican on the House Intelligence committee, called for an immediate congressional investigation into the shootings, to determine whether the intelligence community needs enhanced tools to combat terror. Hoekstra and his colleagues also suggested, without citing evidence, that the administration had restricted the use of crucial terror-fighting tools that could have been used to stop the attacks. [Emphasis added]

I’ll sure sleep better knowing that Inspector Hoekstra is hard at work rooting out the weak sisters at Obama’s Justice Department.  (I’ll even get to watch him look stern and vigilant on C-SPAN!)

Pete’s going to be a very busy man, what with running for governor and all.  It’s a good thing he wouldn’t dream of grandstanding for crass political reasons.
