Mark Udall, Michael Bennet still AWOL on TSA groping, molestation, dangerous body scanners

We're still waiting for Colorado's Senators Mark Udall and Michael Bennet to speak out against the TSA's sexual molestation and use of dangerous body scanners at the nation's airports. The TSA's scanning and molestation scandal  is turning into a war that is pitting the Left's  insistence on political correctness and universal screening against Americans' demands for profiling, personal privacy and liberty.

In addition to the AWOL Udall and Bennet, we have yet to hear from Diana DeGette, Ed Perlmutter, Jared Polis, John Salazar, Mike Coffman and Doug Lamborn. I just checked the web sites of the incumbents who will be in the 112th Congress. None have issued press releases on the TSA scandal. They're hunkering down. These big government types appear to be hoping the controversy will just go away.

It won't. It will only grow as more Americans experience what cya politicians and bureaucrats have dreamed up for them. What the Obama administration is telling us that more terrorists' attacks are expected.

If they aren't stopped, it won't be because the politicians didn't try to stop them. If you're worried about being blown out of the air, don't fly. If you object to Big Brother And Big Sister getting in your pants, don't fly. If you think it will happen to someone else, fly.
