Obama Attended 2 Fundraisers As Deadly Fort Hood Shooting Unfolded
Breitbart ^ | 2 Apr 2014 | Debra Heine

Posted on 04/02/2014 7:11:36 PM PDT by mandaladon

There have now been 4 people confirmed dead after the second shooting at Fort Hood in five years.

Pentagon sources tell CBS News that the Fort Hood shooter is a soldier — identified as 34-year-old Ivan Lopez — and that he died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. CBS News reports that the shooting stemmed from a soldier dispute.

According to Fox News 14 people were wounded with injuries ranging from stable to very critical.

The shooting reportedly started between 4:25 and 4:30 central time and for several hours Fort Hood was in lockdown, and the nation didn't know the number of shooters or whether or the shooter(s) were terrorists.

While all this was unfolding, Obama was in Chicago for a pair of fund raisers.

Air Force One touched down at O'Hare Airport at 4:00 pm and the president was whisked off to his first scheduled stop at the Chicago Cut Steakhouse, where he attended a private roundtable discussion for the DNC. Reportedly 25 supporters paid up to $32,400 to attend that event.

Then he was off to a private residence in Lincoln Park where he attended a dinner reception where 55 supporters paid up to $10,000 to meet the president.

Obama was expected to leave Chicago for Washington DC at around 8:30 p.m.

He interrupted his event at the Chicago Cut Steakhouse to make a brief statement about the ongoing shooting incident.

He interrupted his event at the Chicago Cut Steakhouse to make a brief statement about the ongoing shooting incident.

“I want to just assure all of us we are going to get to the bottom of exactly what happened,” Obama said..+++++++++++++++++++Sure...just like F&F, Benghazi and the NSA.

Seems like he is either taking a vacation, on the golf course or attending a fund raiser.

Fundraising IS his only job. He himself said in 2008 that he running a winning campaign would be his management experience that would prepare him for the presidency.

On the main Ft. Hood thread, I said his next move would be to go play golf, go to a basketball game, or attend a fund raiser. Little did I know he was already at one.

Obama puts the FUN-draising in FUN-eral.

Does this guy ever work?

Or just golf and fund-raise, while the world collapses.

Another head hangs lowly,
Child is slowly taken.
And the violence caused such silence,
Who are we mistaken?

But you see, it’s not me, it’s not my family.
In your head, in your head they are fighting,
With their tanks and their bombs,
And their bombs and their guns.
In your head, in your head, they are crying...

In your head, in your head,
Zombie, zombie, zombie,
Hey, hey, hey. What’s in your head,
In your head,
Zombie, zombie, zombie?
Hey, hey, hey, hey, oh, dou, dou, dou, dou, dou...

Another mother’s breakin’,
Heart is taking over.
When the vi’lence causes silence,
We must be mistaken.

It’s the same old theme since nineteen-sixteen.
In your head, in your head they’re still fighting,
With their tanks and their bombs,
And their bombs and their guns.
In your head, in your head, they are dying...

In your head, in your head,
Zombie, zombie, zombie,
Hey, hey, hey. What’s in your head,
In your head,
Zombie, zombie, zombie?
Hey, hey, hey, hey, oh, oh, oh,
Oh, oh, oh, oh, hey, oh, ya, ya-a...

"Obama Attended 2 Fundraisers As Deadly Fort Hood Shooting Unfolded"

Of course.

What is more important -- raising money to ensure more Democrat victories or the well-being of our soldiers in time of crisis?

I don’t think there’s anything that would keep him from golf or a fundraiser. It’s what he lives for.

When Hussein leaves office does he get to keep his unused campaign funds?
Maybe that is the reason for his continuous money grasping.

I remember the last shooting when he said “I wanna give a shout out to my friends here tonight....” before giving remarks about the first shooting. Day after Benghazi he went to Vegas for fundraising and tonight...2 fundraisers.

Rich 1 percenters giving money to dine with the “one”. Yet retarded liberal voters will continue to condemn the rich conservatives.

I listened to his little speech up until the first “huh...”, which was about the third word. He’ll get a free pass like he always does but W is still getting dumped on for taking a few moments to digest 9/11 and calmly leave a classroom of little kids so as not to freak them out.

Who care about the military anyway? It was only a few dead soldiers. (sarc)

He’s just gotta keep that “free sh&t” (in this case money) coming in.

The events in Benghazi unfolded in the late afternoon in Washington. Obama had already punched out on the clock and was having fish tacos, he had a fundraiser the next day and needed to be fresh.

If anyone digs up any or all the names of those traitors-to-the-Republic Chicagoans attending the two fundraisers, please give me a ping.

I bet it won't be an easy job.
