Skip to comments.NBC CHICAGO: Obama's Frightening Insensitivity Following Shooting
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?

A bunch of radicals that hate America, but you'd think zer0 would at least be able to exercise some judgement without having to be orchestrated.
He's just an arrogant muzzie, usurping POS and should be removed.
He is much worse than that! He us selling this nation off to the worlds enemies.
The worst thing about all this is that in spite of what this guy is showing of himself, there are still people, like my middle step daughter and her younger sister, who thinks this guy is a water walker ( as we used to say in the service of someone who was clearly above the rest)and refuses to see that the in the case of one, that the impending loss of her home is directly related to the democrat party, ignoring the warnings of the Bush administration about the housing mess, that got us into this situation. We are on the road to hell and they still think this guy is a saviour!.
I believe what you are saying is correct. Barry is a puppet for something even more evil than him, and when they are through with him, they will eliminate him to REALLY throw the country into turmoil, to finish it off.
...the normal, legally-elected way, at least. There'll be martial law, actively provoked by the WH in response to some "event" (an unruly march on DC, perhaps, with unruliness brought on by infiltrating leftist poseurs) by then, and the 2012 elections will be postponed, with "nasty ole' conservative" activists (viz. FR types) and talk-show host types being dramatically shut down and (arrested and) sent off for debriefing (and re-education). The violent response from Barry will be short-lived, thankfully, though at great expense, I suspect.
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
I have always thought that his owner: Soro, is out to destroy this country and that once Hussain’s usefulness is over that he would be assassinated and the country would erupt in a civil war.
The US is not supposed to exist at the End of Time. I guess this would be one way...
I thought this was already determined to be TOTUS.
Barak Hussein Obama
Mmmmm mmmmmm mmmmmm
I’d like to give a shout out to our President...”You’re a Moron!!!”
He’s just a street ****** with a law degree.
Who’s advising him? Is that a rhetorical question, or a joke?
He needs his advisors to tell him not to act like a clown and give teen-age “shout outs” to his homies after our military people are slaughtered?
If he needs advisors to tell him how to handle the situation he’s obviously incompetent and not fit for POTUS, which he proved in spades.
It’s not his “advisers” fault, it’s his.
I hear you celtic gal. They are blindly following their leader to the grave.
I predict a presidential pardon for this guy in 2012.
Obama's saluting form before all that practice for the Dover PHOTO OP. He IS saluting, OK? And that is how he was doing it.
He has mental health issues on that we can agree.
With each tone deaf gaffe by this poseur, ol’ Jimmah Carter has to be doing huzzahs and hand stands, knowing his “Worst President Ever” title is finally being passed on to someone more incompetent than himself.
And here’s a shout-out to all the one-time voters that foisted this POS on our great nation. From now on, please restrict your voting to “Duncing with the Stars” and “American I-dull”.
Using ghetto lingo preceding a tepid statement regarding this tragedy. What a “president” we have.
I had to force myself to view this charade.
EVERYONE I talk to is sick of Obama. They are sick of his speeches and campaign and do nothing and blame Bush game attitude.Everyone knows he is ruining this country beyond words.
WHY are no reps or public figure speaking out and stopping him?
I watched this live. It revealed O’s true self.
His compassion is faked. As faked as his photo op salute to the coffins.
They’ve been playing the incremental game for a very long time, and they’ve got very far with that game. America has quite a lot of marxism enacted right now.
I doubt they’ll rock the boat as you say.
There are less obvious ways they can gain more power than that. For example they could make it like some racist white guy or anti-abortionist kills him. Pow, democrat supermajority in both houses & whitehouse for 20 years.
Even better, officials in Hawaii that know truth about Obama's birth might decide to release documents.
I was in total amazement.
'Why is he not opening with condolences for the fallen and wounded soldiers at Fr. Hood'
'Does he not know what has happened?'
Then I realized this guy doesn't really give a crap about our military and their families else he would have began with condolences, not shoot outs!
What a F'n Jerk!
On election night, I saw a clip of him departing AF1 with Corzine, and it seemed that the salute he gave then was... an inconvenience. Compared to President Bush who was always crisp, smile on his face, relayed respect for those serving.
“doesn’t really give a crap about our military and their families “
I’ve been saying that for months.
That is why I want our heros home.
Obviously, we need them here.
Only one thing comes to mind: LORD HAVE MERCY! And I pray that—with all my heart and soul!
That salute photo speaks volumes on so many topics.
“Disgrace” doesn’t begin to describe this President. “Disgrace” would mean that at one point he actually garnered any kind of respect.
He is absolutely the worst thing to happen to the country.
No he’s going to do the photo op stuff and come up with some committee to look into this crisis at Ft. Hood... and his numbers will actually improve. He loves this kind of thing.
He’s a do nothing president....who likes to act like he’s doing something.
Obamah is hands-down "Worst President Ever!!"
“alive and well”
GOT THAT RIGHT..NO HERO STATUS FOR THIS GUY.
He need to suffer the Jimmah Carter life. Except HE now gets the label “WORST PRESIDENT IN AMERICAN HISTORY”
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.”
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
Is this Obama’s Katrina Moment?
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.
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...
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.
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.
Being from Cherokee heritage, myself.....that picture is soooooo disrespectful. What an asshole.
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.
