Obama to attend memorial for Fort Hood victims
Associated Press ^ | Nov. 7, 2009 | PHILIP ELLIOTT

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama will attend a memorial service Tuesday honoring victims of the Ford Hood shootings, an attack he described as "all the more heartbreaking and all the more despicable" because it occurred on the nation's largest Army post.

He praised those who ended the shootings, which killed 13 and wounded 30 others, and lauded the armed services' diversity—a move designed to calm tensions about the suspected shooter, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan.

"They are Americans of every race, faith and station. They are Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus and nonbelievers," Obama said in his radio and Internet address Saturday, airing the weekend before Veterans Day.

can't wait until he gives 'em the "now let's not jump to any conclusion" line. That ought to get 'em going.

It's lose-lose for you, Baraqi.

I bet that is bullshit. Hindus? Nonbelievers? Who are they, Hussein? What Muslims stood to stop that rampage? I want their names, jackass.

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.
We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream.
It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same,
or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children
and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.

The shooter was a “Mo” and almost all the terrorism for the past thirty years has involved “Mo’s”. Get it? Got it? That’s what they do. Trust them if you’re retarded enough.

Oh bleahhh, puke. Stay away, stupid poseur - just looking for a photo-op to show he really, really cares. BS. Some advisor or another is probably dragging him kicking and screaming to it.

“They are Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus and nonbelievers,”

But apparently it’s only the Muslims who feel it’s necessary to murder their fellow soldiers. As they do to Jews, Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, atheists, agnostics, and fellow Muslims.

Due to his inaction over the past 48 hrs and incompetence in his position in the chain of command, if he seeks to telegraph empathy, I would feel more secure if he remained completely out of the decision making process and left the military operations to the professionals seeking to obey the legitimate authority of our Constitution.

Ooooh. Can you imagine? That would be something to see. I feel so sorry for the people attending that service who are truly in mourning. They have to be there with the great pretender. I would feel very cheated.

So if it would have happened on another base it wouldn't have been as bad?

WTF is this guy taking about?

If I had a family member killed by this monster, I would tell the military that they had to choose between me and barry. I would REFUSE to be a part of the event if barry was going to be there.

This is an insult to every patriotic American and member of our military to allow this treasonous, worthless, cowardly POS to attend.

When will the country and the leftist “progressives” undertand the threat from Islam? The Muslims want us and Western civilization dead. What part of that do they not understand?

I didn't think that could disrespect/dislike anyone more than Hitlery and The Rapist Clintoon but OZero has entered a whole new realm of that in my book.

As a Christian I'm supposed to pray for my enemies and love them like I love myself but is so damn difficult to do it with him.
