discussion thread on Obama at Fort Hood ....

Story Here (http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/11/10/obama-gets-crack-healer-chief/)


He has promised a full investigation of the Fort Hood shootings but has said little about it as police search for a motive. He has praised religious diversity in the military, trying to offer calm as questions loom about whether the alleged shooter had ties to extremist Islamic ideology. And he has delayed a trip to Asia to attend the memorial service.

He promised a full investigation? This from the guy who IMMEDIATELY said it wasn't terrorism?
Yeah .. like I would trust him to do any investigation on a muslim terrorist. NOT!

Obama delayed a trip to Asia to attend the serivce? He HAD to. If he didn't, the entire country
would have called for his head on a platter. It would have been political suicide.

They arrive.

WHY is Michelle smiling?

He looks angry to be there.
Big Brother isn't happy with the way that the Ministry of Truth handled this.
She looks like she's holding back a belch or something.

Okay ... on to what he has to say .... 5 minutes until the ceremony.

Yep. And from the picture he looks angry about being there.
He's probably seriously ticked.
He wanted this to be 'not a terrorist attack .. it's not even being discussed'.
But the truth is coming out ....

Well gee - he could have made a trip down there first off instead of going to camp david. He could have gotten there before Bush and before people noticed that he hadn't shown his face down there yet.

His lax response to the situatioin and jovial mood when he first mentioned it on camera ... his immediate statement that this wasn't terrorism ... everything pointed to the fact that he just wasn't all that into acting presidential in regards to this TERRORIST attack. SOmeone on his staff probably kicked him in the butt to wake him up and told him he had to go. Betchya he whined ...

It wasn't really applause. It was more like some folks in the back who gave him a woot and applause.
Rock concert style. They soon shut up when they saw the mood of the event and that it wasn't a
'yes we can' zombie-inn.

At least that's what it seemed like to me.


The speech .... he looked angry to be there. But it was an appropriate speech.
I noticed the teleprompter was in place but he hand carried a note that had the
names of the people who would be there. I betchya the speech forgot to acknowledge
the Generals and Govenors as protocol states. He was reading the names off the
piece of paper before the speech. Looked like a handout for an event kind of thing.

I want to see one of those coins he gave away. Is his mug on it or is it the unit symbol???

News Max (http://www.newsmax.com/insidecover/us_obama_fort_hood_shooter/2009/11/10/284378.html)


FORT HOOD, Texas -- President Barack Obama is blaming "twisted logic" for the killing of 13 men and women at Fort Hood, and says there is no faith that justifies acts he describes as "murderous and craven."

Obama spoke Tuesday at a memorial service for the fallen.

Maj. Nidal Hasan allegedly went on a shooting rampage at the Army post last Thursday. Soldiers reported that Hasan, who is Muslim, shouted the Arabic phrase for "God is Great" before opening fire.

Obama says no just and loving God looks with favor upon the Fort Hood slayings, and that the shooter ultimately will meet justice "in this world and the next."

He said everything except the 't' word.
WHY can't he say the word 'TERRORISM'.
WHY?? It's freak'n strange.

People hate him for the muslim sympathizer he has proven to be.
We hate him for apologizing on our behalf as though we, the USA, are the problem and not the best force for good this world has ever kinown.
We hate him because he is Commander in Chief yet allows fear of his left wing base to put troops and the entire mission in Afghanistan in jeopardy.
We hate him for his "screw you Americans, I'll bankrupt you whether you like it or not."
We hate him for calling us names because we disagree with him. Names like Teabaggers, clingers, fringe, extremists, etc.
We hate him for the liar he is.
We hate him for many reasons BEFORE he went to Ft Hood. He has to earn respect and admiration from us. We don't give it freely like the adoring mindless throng (Crissy "my leg is tingling" Spitball Matthews) that swept him into a job he is unable to perform.

In O Blah Blah's case, there is a perception that he has contempt for the military, he would have been better off not going. The troops don't care much for him. Bush is admired, respected, and even loved by the military as evidenced by his reception. The quiet reserve the military has around the current resident indicates the military attitude toward him.:cool:

Like it was pointed out. There wasn't much of an applause when he showed up.
Some woots in the way back ... but they died down when they saw what everyone else did.
And I'm sure that the fact that Obama won't call this what it is - TERRORISM - irks the family members.

Oh, I'm sure he's painfully aware of the lack of enthusiasm he generates among the military. As others have pointed out, he's damned either way over this thing.

He's used political correctness to hardwire his base and regardless of what else comes out of this investigation, political correctness killed a bunch of people and wounded even more. If they admit that religious terrorism caused it, then it happened on his watch in his military. If they claim it was "sudden jihad syndrome" or some other silly excuse, he still looks like a fool for commanding a military so inept that even the shrinks are psychotic.

There is probably no video of Bush's interaction with the troops. You see, he had no speech and there were no cameras.

When my daughter was wounded in Iraq she was stabilized in Iraq, then sent to Germany and finally to Walter Reed. President Bush dropped in to see the troops (my ex-wife and I arrived at Walter Reed just after the President did and the Secret Service had locked the hospital down tighter than a drum). There was only one photographer with the President and he only took pictures of the soldiers who wanted to do so. My daughter said that it was not a photo op. It was a visit from a Commander in Chief who was truly concerned.

President Bush asked my daughter how she had gotten wounded and presented her with her Purple Heart. He also prayed with her, poured her some juice and not only expressed that she was a more important person than he was, she felt it. He knew that he had been the one who ordered the soldiers to Iraq, but that they had to be the ones to face the bullets. My daughter has no doubt that her Commander in Chief had a deep appreciation for her service and sacrifice. I get no sense of this in the slightest from our current President.
