Does political rhetoric actually lead to shit getting done in the way of security?

Or are these kinds of things just to to inform voters about the strings they are directly pulling behind the scenes, for vainglory and votes?

I suspect that the vast majority of security problems facing any nation could be solved simply by people doing their jobs. One of the reasons that shit does not get done in the security realms is the various forms of institutional inertia: that's not my job, we've always done it this way, and gimme a bribe so I'll stop obstructing you. Political rhetoric if properly focused can be used to clear much of that obstructionism out of the way, particularly the corruption. If people are exposed for not doing their jobs, they are typically shamed or forced into doing their jobs. Please note that this responsible use of rhetoric is very different from the typical use of rhetoric which is to frustrate the supporters of political opponents and trick them into not voting.

on a side note, I hate that fucking cliche pose.

Every fucking comic book and comic book movie trots it out as if it's awesome and we've never seen it ten thousand times before. It's retarded.
