NBC CHICAGO: Obama's Frightening Insensitivity Following Shooting
NBC Chicago ^ | 6 Nov 2009 | Robert A. George

Posted on 11/06/2009 7:11:53 AM PST by FourPeas

Getty Images President 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.

But instead of a somber chief executive offering reassuring words and expressions of sympathy and compassion, viewers saw a wildly disconnected and inappropriately light president making introductory remarks. At the event, a Tribal Nations Conference hosted by the Department of Interior's Bureau of Indian affairs, the president thanked various staffers and offered a "shout-out" to "Dr. Joe Medicine Crow -- that Congressional Medal of Honor winner." Three minutes in, the president spoke about the shooting, in measured and appropriate terms. Who is advising him?

Obamah makes Jimmy Carter look downright intelligent.

Obamah is hands-down "Worst President Ever!!"

You did. FR’s search doesn’t include words three letters and under. I bet you searched on “NBC.”

It’s not your fault.

Just heard of FOX..the reporter in at the WH ( not Garrett) say that it was uncertain if 0bama would go to Ft Hood or not as there is so much going on in the world situations. Can you imagine that! President Bush would already be there!!!
I hope all Military Personnel are taking note of just how much this dolt in the WH who is strutting around as CIC cares not one whit about them.
I wish we could have an impeachment of this MAGGOT IN CHIEF.

I wasn’t born yet when Carter was in office. I asked my mom yesterday if she was this scared and horrified back then when he was President. She said, “No. I knew he was just a moron. This man is evil. How I feel now if completely foreign to me.”

same here

everyone I know , even those who voted for him are sick of him and how radical they have become but they are fed up of him in another way and that is how he is treating the white hosue like a big laugh,

Many have said how they view him as not taking things seriously and that he is out of touch with average Americans.

More and more are asking about his wife too and why has she not done anything but vacation.

But everyone is fed up of the way he is viewed and views himself as a rock star .

People are losing their jobs and I know quite a few, a couple are being foreclosed and pone elderly has no electricity because she cannot afford her electric bill and this congress keeps going on about health care

I know what you mean.

If we can just hold him and Radical Democrats off one more year till the mid-term elections, I think we can take back the congress and senate and put an end to this madness.

I honestly believe there is a lot of buyer's remorse out there. ..those too stupid to realize Obamah was blowing 'moderate' smoke up their butts during the campaign.

It seemed like he had to finish a teleprompter speech first before he could move on. Previous articles on FR have mentioned how a narcissist will not be able to hide it. Eventually it shows through. Lack of empathy is one of the characteristics.

Isn’t it funny that V was originally set to imitate the Nazi’s take over of Germany, and it is considered Right-Wing propaganda?

The liberals always told us that the Nazi’s were Right Wing, so shouldn’t this be liberal propaganda? What are they afraid of? Its very telling...

Color me “tin-foil”—but I have been praying—seriously—that Obama leave office alive and well, BECAUSE I have this awful feeling that behind Obama is a “controller”, who REALLY wants to destroy this country, and knows that if Obama were assassinated the blame would be placed on the “hate-mongers of the right”—and any media personalities (like Rush and Beck) who could be painted with that wide brush. That would be a very effective way to marginalize “conservatives”, and give the Le

That's why “they” are even now hyping the “assination” fears of the left.

3 years to go.

Obama wants to tax us to death.

Tell me what the American reaction will be if he announces global warming NWO with the U.N. on Dec. 10th to save us all supposedly.

You know, I don’t think he cares. Were he a proud American it *would* matter, but to Pres Obama the only thing that matters is himself.

It seems like there is another -probably Soros- agenda that he is in office for. Doesn't care or like America and its people and traditions. He has be programed not to.

Oh, I agree. I just don’t think Obama is aware he’s a pawn. He actually thinks it’s all about him which makes him the perfect pawn.
