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

Posted on 04/02/2014 5:42:41 PM PDT by mdittmar

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.

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.

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.

is that you won’t let our soldiers carry weapons to defend themselves because you don’t trust them.

Anyone with an IQ above room temperature is aware Hussein Obama is a traitor to the Muslim terrorists. All soldiers take an oath to defend the Constitution against enemies, both foreign and domestic.

Hussein can't afford to let any of them have a clear shot.

I thought he was made President to transform this country into a 3rd world tyrannical crap hole because our exceptionalism is unfair, unjust, and came on the backs of the poor and minorities.

Yep.....Obama is going to get to the bottom of this incident the same way he did with Benghazi, the IRS scandal, fast & furious, etc. Obama....the worshipper of the first Muslim shooter at Fort Hood...back in 2009!!! Hassan sits in prison enjoying life for almost six years after his murders at Fort Hood, courtesy of Obama & Eric Holder!!! Yeh....Obama has this in hand....the same way he knew the Boston Marathon killers beforehand. He completely ignored the tip off from the Russians!!! Go figure!!!

Emergency crews, FBI and SWAT teams were called in to the base following the shooting, which occured at approximately 4:30 p.m.......

On Wednesday evening, President Obama was being kept up to date on the developments from the mass shooting at Fort Hood while reportedly attending fundraisers for the 2014 election cycle. ....
According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Obama was originally slated to attend a private dinner for three between the two fundraisers, with Obama’s water and food carted in exclusively for him. The other two members of the dinner soiree will be Mayor Rahm Emanuel and former Obama top advisor David Axelrod. The first event took place at 4:45 PM CT, with tickets running $32,400 per person. Obama is slated to attend another Democratic National Committee fundraiser tonight, with 55 members of the audience all shelling out $10,000 per plate.

We know what Obama’s priorities are.

We are awake. The puzzle is how to wake those who voted for him twice. I really wish I knew the solution. Right now they are safe in mom's basement. When mom dies and the bank takes the house we might have a shot.
