Text of Obama's Remarks on Fort Hood Shooting
ABC News ^ | April 3, 2014 | The Associated Press

Text of President Barack Obama's remarks at a Chicago restaurant about Wednesday's shooting incident at Ford Hood, Texas:

———

I just got off the phone with Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Sandy Winnefeld to get the latest report on the situation at Fort Hood.

Obviously, we're following it closely. The situation is fluid right now, but my national security team is in close contact with not just the Defense Department, but the FBI. They are working with folks on the ground to determine exactly what happened, to make sure that everybody is secure. And I want to just assure all of us that we are going to get to the bottom of exactly what happened.

You know, any shooting is trouble.

Did he add that of course it is more important to raise money than as Commander in Chief to go be with soldiers injured and killed along with their families? I have more respect for the Duck Commander than this worthless muslim.

I'm confident he'd blow it off if Valerie Jarrett would allow him to.

I’m surprised he didn’t answer the phone on a golf course.

What happened Obama, you lily-livered piece of shit, is that you won’t let our soldiers carry weapons to defend themselves because you don’t trust them. Our military bases are now just another set of gun-free zones that provide crazies a safe environment for them to wreck mayhem.

Why should the president comment on workplace violence?

I wonder if he will sign an executive order to outlaw guns in America? You know he would like to.

No but I'm sure he doesn't want us to 'jump to any conclusions'.

This would be the equivalent of Pearl Harbor being bombed a second time.

There was a lot of reporting but not many details. As usual in a situation like that.
