Father Of 9/11 Victim: Obama "Putting Too Much Spotlight On Himself"
RCP ^ | May 5, 2011

Posted on 05/05/2011 12:19:23 PM PDT by library user

~ EXCERPT ~

David Beamer, father of 9/11 victim Todd Beamer on FOX News:

"I feel some chagrin now, though, about how the rest of it has been handled.

And frankly it started May Day, 2011 when the president announced what had happened.

The excessive use of the personal pronoun that he used in his remarks, I really felt that was the beginning of the Commander-in-Chief putting too much spotlight on himself, taking too much credit for what the remarkable Americans had done.

Remember how the Left expected us to listen to the "Jersey Girls" when they complained about Bush's handling of 9/11? We were supposed to listen to and follow every word, because as their husbands had died in 9/11, they automatically knew more about terrorism than anyone else who ever lived.

Somehow I doubt this man will be granted that type of "authority."

He spikes the ball when it's all about him.

When it's about other people, spiking the ball is gauche.

The other families probably feel the same way. I will surmise that they would prefer to meet with Bush than this campaigning liar of a p_resident.

Ya know, it’s a little off topic, but does anyone know what might have happenned to the millions reported to have been kept around by OBL? We know they had orders to take things. For a guy who had to remain hidden, it was rumored he kept an awful lot of cash. The $500 sewn into his jammies thing I found a bit unthinkable as well.

Perhaps Mr. Beamer just doesn't realize that 0bama is the greatest intellect to ever occupy the WH, and a colossal force of world historical importance.

I only found out by reading the WH press release.

Why liberals cannot be taken seriously:

Decades of government manipulation of mortgage markets leads to market collapse and recession = BUSH’s fault.

Nearly ten years of intelligence gathering and military/CIA work started by the Bush Administration and inherited by Obama Administration = OBAMA victory.

Obama’s an a$$hole!!!

I haven’t been to New York or Washington to the Pentagon..but I did go the the Flight 93 site a few days before the 5th anniversary of the horrible attack. The wooden angels with the names of the passengers reduced me to tears, even though I thought I was prepared.

Seeing Todd Beamer’s name brings it home up close and personal, what these ordinary citizens did under extraordinary circumstances. They fought back before the attack was over and sacrificed themselves to protect others. Those words “Let’s Roll” are as clear now as they have ever been. God bless Todd, his dad, his wife and his young family. And we will not ever forget.

Great point...
Maybe we should have this gentleman at the Senate Hearings on how this was handled? I mean we will have hearings won’t we? (sarcasm)

I agree. I’m getting a little tired of this cowardly Kenyan bastard trying to pass himself off as “The Man Who Shot Osama bin Laden”. (And we all know who shot Liberty Valance and it wasn’t James Stewart). And the next time I hear Sean Hannity use the word “gutsy” to describe Barry, I’m going to fly to New York and put a boot in his ass.

OF COURSE, Ubama wants the spotlight.

Ubama’s primary concern when he “authorized” the mission was not “a safer America”, not vengeance for murdered Americans, not the war on terror, and not anything but his own political fortunes. That pack of scumbags over at the White House high-fived each other half to death after bin Laden got killed. “Wheee! We be re-elected for sure, now!” That’s the only thing it meant to them. The ONLY thing.

A possible Ubama re-election poses a far more imminent threat to this nation than Osama bin Laden ever posed. Seeing that skunk Ubama attempt to steal the credit for the risks taken by the same US military that he and his party have relentlessly tried to eviscerate for decades makes normal Americans throw up in their mouths a little. Who can blame David Beamer for feeling the way he does?

Ubama “authorized” the mission... Wow. What an American hero.

Great photoshop!

I can see The One’s polling numbers going down every time he opens his mouth this week.

I knew he would get a chilly reception in NYC.

Beginning? That's just classic Obama-ism.

Think about George W. Bush’s remarks at Ground Zero back on Sept. 14, 2001 and how Obama would probably have delivered those lines... I’m paraphrasing and guessing but here’s my guess:

“I can hear you... and the whole world hears me... and pretty soon, the people who knocked down these buildings will be hearing from me, too!”

What a jerk... but that’s unkind to “jerks” in general.
