David Henderson waxes sarcastic on this rather silly Obama quote:

"One of the most frustrating aspects of this fight against terrorism is that it has created a whole security apparatus around us that causes huge inconvenience for all of us," Obama said.

"All of us?" Really, Mr. President?

I assume that the President is volunteering, in the spirit of civic virtue, to have himself and his family subjected to invasive pat-downs every time they fly.  In which case, I accept, Mr. President.  Show us how important this is by undergoing it yourself.
