Skip to comments.Obama's Frightening Insensitivity Following Shooting
Posted on 11/06/2009 5:17:15 PM PST by MaxCUA
Obama didn't wait long after Tuesday's devastating elections to give critics another reason to question his leadership, but this time the subject matter was more grim than a pair of governorships.
After news broke out of the shooting at the Fort Hood Army post in Texas, the nation watched in horror as the toll of dead and injured climbed. The White House was notified immediately and by late afternoon, word went out that the president would speak about the incident prior to a previously scheduled appearance. At about 5 p.m., cable stations went to the president. The situation called for not only his trademark eloquence, but also grace and perspective.
Eloquence? His eloquence comes from whatever is on the teleprompter.
I guess 10% unemployment is the key to start getting the MSM to turn your back on this guy.
It is so interesting that the MSM is losing viewership and readership in droves and they wonder why FOX News and the WSJ are increasing viewership and readership.
If the MSM would call it like everyone sees it they would be back in the race again.
I was wondering what he might say. I saw the 2min 30sec light-hearted blabbering, and then he spoke. Disgust and shock is what I felt after watching.
Obama like most liberals have high distain for the American Military so it is no surprise to me that he would give shout outs to Native Americans (The Oppressed indigenous peoples) before recognizing the tragedy at Fort Hood....
Typical of Narcissistic dictators in chief like Obama....
This article was on NBC Chicago affiliates website? Very surprising & very interesting to say the least.
“his trademark eloquence” (my arse) the “One” has no clothes.
Does anyone know where I can find the video of this? Didn’t watch it yesterday.
He spent the first minute and half blabbering about the Native American Conference he had just attended and gave “shout outs” to the attnedees. This man has no shame. He is a disgrace to the office.
Local radio had this on, they went back to regular programming when it became evident that bambi was acting anything but concerned. I don’t think they ever did go back live to the conference.
OMG how insensitive was that. He completely ignored the whole situation just to appease some Indians?
He should fire the TOTUS...
But beside he shows he is not up to the job!
See post 9
The end of the piece says that between Tuesday’s loss of seats to the R’s and Obama’s performance yesterday, Dems should be afraid. Of what? Incompetence, an anti-American leftist education, unfocused thought, and dubious policy objectives? Most of the left is or has been too stoned for so long a time that they wouldn’t recognize any of these danger signals.
But not to worry. We do.
let’s don’t go jumping to conclusions. give us time to get memos out to jihadi networks.
“I guess 10% unemployment is the key to start getting the MSM to turn your back on this guy.”
There was a pundit on tv who said that if unemployment doesn’t improve by next year, the Dems will be history. Unfortunately, Obama and his cohorts in Congress can still do a lot of damage between now and then.
i think it is hysterical that the CIC doesnt know the difference between the Medal of Honor and Medal of Freedom...and the irony...he gives a shout out about the Medal of Honor right before he talks about dead troops\
Crow is not a Medal of Honor recipient
