Obama's Frightening Insensitivity Following Shooting

This appeared on the website of the NBC Chicago affiliate, of all places.

President Barack Obama didn't wait long after Tuesday's devastating elections to give critics another reason to question his leadership, but this time the subject matter was more grim than a pair of governorships.

After news broke out of the shooting at the Fort Hood Army post in Texas, the nation watched in horror as the toll of dead and injured climbed. The White House was notified immediately and by late afternoon, word went out that the president would speak about the incident prior to a previously scheduled appearance. At about 5 p.m., cable stations went to the president. The situation called for not only his trademark eloquence, but also grace and perspective.

But instead of a somber chief executive offering reassuring words and expressions of sympathy and compassion, viewers saw a wildly disconnected and inappropriately light president making introductory remarks. At the event, a Tribal Nations Conference hosted by the Department of Interior's Bureau of Indian affairs, the president thanked various staffers and offered a "shout-out" to "Dr. Joe Medicine Crow -- that Congressional Medal of Honor winner." Three minutes in, the president spoke about the shooting, in measured and appropriate terms. Who is advising him?


It's a bit surprising that an NBC affiliate, out of Chicago no less, would criticize Hussein this way. But the clueless imbeciles still don't understand that it has nothing to do with who's "advising" him.

The most anti-defense, anti-military president in American history wasn't "advised" to show this kind of disrespect towards the military. It's in his DNA.
