Skip to comments.Obama's 'Delayed Empathy' over Fort Hood Massacre
Posted on 11/07/2009 6:42:13 AM PST by no-llmd
This hasn't gotten half the play it should have and for good reason; President Obama's weird, off-putting introduction to his remarks about the Fort Hood massacre reveal him to be something of a cold fish. Shocking insensitivity.

I do not blame other officers and soldiers for ostracizing the man or calling him on his open comments where he was siding with the enemy. I blame Hasan himself, and the system that kept him in place after he so openly opposed his own and sided with the enemy. The man should have certainly been nowhere near soldiers returning from or shipping out to the war zone...and should have been drummed uncerimoniously and without honor out of the service.
This was a case of Jihad within the ranks plain and simple, like Sgt. Akbar's despicable actions in 2003.
Hopefully this Jihadist will get the same sentence as Akbar got and they both will be more quickly carried out.
Obama's response (or more appropriately named, non-response) has been disgusting, but not surprising, IMHO.
Obama doesn’t give a crap about our brave men and women.
What really torches my tushie is hearing more on the news about how “fearful” other Muslims are about “backlash” and NOT hearing anything about investigation into this guys connections.
I’m really hoping Glenn Beck can get on this next week.
It was his Narcissistic personality on full display.
It isn’t so much that he is a “cold fish” or a dithering idiot, but that his responses are inappropriate and he is unable to understand what is important to other people. These behaviors all seem to be part of his personality disorder. But, worse, his advisors seem to inhabit the same mental nether world that he does or how could these inappropriate behaviors be seen so often?
No, not much at all.
barry is a dithering idiot
No, not an idiot; a narcissistic, self-important, boor who truly believes everyone lives to see and hear him. It's a show, you know...
You are correct, and you can add in the compliant “news” media, who refuse to see the obvious.
Obama is a commie sympathizer, in line with every demonstration that Code Pinkos have done - demonstrated in his behavior with various national leaders, ranging from Chavez to Gordon Brown.
His ideology is on display, and too many Americans refuse to see it.
“Obama doesnt give a crap about our brave men and women.”
Correct. This episode if like Clinton laughing while leaving the funeral for whatshisname. The Kenyan only cares about himself.
This idiot does not respond unless it is all about him ... period.
(I hope I've given Peters the correct rank.)
I think it's pretty obvious Obama did not want to step too deep into the Ft Hood mess for fear of offending his brothers in Islam.
I'm positive we can find verses in the Koran that will explain his actions for almost everything he does
You beat me to it; this is what came to mind for me also. Obama couldn't care less about what just happened.
This was the attitude of Czar Nicholas II towards the Russian military in WWI which led towards extreme disgust with the man. Czar Nicky abdicated the throne with pistols from his military officers aimed at his head.
Even worse than this “shout-out” bureaucratic goodtime
address, were the obviously scripted words that came much later, delivered in the most unconvincing ‘stentorian’ monotone that has become his trademark ‘sound’. SO obviously the work of a scriptwriter, with all that patented high-sounding political ‘purple prose’
I heard it on the radio, wish I had a copy of the actual words/
Imagine watching his cold response from a FOB in Iraq or Afghanistan. I feel so helpless watching this man show such disrespect for our troops and our country.
Pray for our troops.
Obama is a Muslim and AGREES with this “devout Muslin” that slaughtered our military men and women.
None of the elite give a dang about any American - military or non military. They care about social and economic marxism and “progressing’ that agenda through the dismantling and distruction of the US. The elite’s culture of death is not a joke and it is not limited to abortion.
"I'd like to give a shout out to Dr. Joe. Wow, what a productive conference. Native Americans are cool. Oh yeah, a bunch of soldiers were murdered and injured today at Fort Hood. Okie dokie, I'm headed to the links."
