A Shout Out from Obama before mention of Ft Hood

Major Hasan shopping is pictured below.


So cool, so in charge, continuing to read each word from the teleprompter as he discusses his grief and concern for the soldiers killed and wound. This gives me the chills.

Chills is right!

I posted about his speech today.

Unbelievable.

Z said...

not today, Ducky, you're deleted (and you don't need to go to AOW's blog and whine that Z deleted you...I'm claiming it again here for all to see).. your inability to understand nuance and sympathy just shouldn't be exposed here.
You really do need your own blog and I encourage it because the constant slams on FOX aren't going to fly here anymore. Their ratings are up with independents, talk radio's soaring; maybe YOU think Americans are stupid to want the truth, but most Americans don't think that...and they're finally finding the truth. You saw that exhibited in New Jersey and VA's last elections. If the mainstream media were a bit more honest, conservative talk radio would have only been barely squeaking along as leftwinger radio has.
If the rest of your ilk were as sure of itself in its socialist agenda's being accepted; a total take over of this great country, they'd also not be QUITE as panicked over a woman they feel has no experience, isn't bright, and can't run a country; Sarah Palin. Instead, they're in evil and ugly overdrive slamming her. That says volumes.

There's little dignity and decorum on the left, especially with Obama; perhaps this is why you didn't recognize that his words are not what a Republican president would have used in remembering the dead and wounded soldiers at Ft. Hood.
Or, maybe if they just hadn't been soldiers we'd have had a little more touching moment from our commander in chief? Perhaps if he'd just given that poor black honor's student's death in Chicago a "Shout OUt" he might have had a good teaching moment there but I think that had a lesson of raising children of better character and far less angry black children to please him. GOT to KEEP 'EM ANGRY.
sad.

After the very moving visit of Obama to Dover, watching soldiers come home in caskets (except only ONE family allowed the pictures, come to think of it, the rest thought him wrong), the msm was in overdrive yet again slamming Bush who hadn't done this. Someone corrected them at CNN and reminded them that Bush made many, many visits with NO CAMERAS to the wounded, encouraging, talking, etc., ...sad that the msm didn't pick that up, but Bush didn't need lights and cameras.
I'm trying to picture him saying "Ladies and Gentleman, I want to give a SHOUT OUT to some people who are here first and then tell you that America's just lost 12 of its best and brightest and 30 are wounded." (Obama got the shout out information wrong, too, by the way..."Dr. Joe Medicine Smith is not a Congressional Medal of Honor winner. He did receive the Medal of Freedom -- awarded to him by President Obama.", as Breitbart noted.) Even his teleprompter's messing up these days.

Z said...

Ducky's already whining to Joe POlitico (see my sidebar for address) that "Z censored me"..

So, I commented with this speech most of us would have appreciated hearing from our Commander in Chief on the death of AMERICAN SOLDIERS on AMERICAN SOIL:

"I thank you for having me here today. I'd be remiss without first mentioning the Ft Hood attacks and asking for your prayers for those who have passed, for the wounded, and for their families. Please stop with me for a minute of silence. Now, I'd like to proceed with the order of business here, and thank you again for having me, it's a privilege and an honor......."

why not? WRite what YOU think Obama might have said that would have at least shown dignity and a modicum of empathy.

Brooke said...

I felt physically ill when I saw that video of Obama completely disrespecting the men and women who died and were injured yesterday, and delivering his 'concern' from the teleprompter with all of the genuine emotion of a cockroach.

cube said...

Good for you, Z!

There was no excuse for 7Up's performance yesterday. It was a disgrace.

Obama is a dirty little bastard.

"Everything this man says is as if by rote. His cadence never changes, nor can one sense any feeling in his voice. He might as well have been saying “I had a nice lunch”.

One senses no solemnity nor sadness nor outrage at the horrific murderous assault on our brave men and women. For President Obama this was just another day at the “office”.

God bless our troops and their familes, and God keep the fallen in His hands."

I had posted my comment above at Breitbart TV below the video last night, and decided to repost it here, rather than write a new, similar one. It says what I wanted to say.

Today, I understand the media wishes to portray the killer as suffering from something they are calling pre-traumatic stress.

A weak excuse for an evil, murderous rampage. Political correctness taken to an extreme, and one which reduces these murders to a sickness rather than a terrorist attack.

However it's also my understanding that, he also shouted "allau akbar". This is what defines, and make's clear Hasan's attack as one of terrorism.

I'm sure now we will be told not to hold any animus toward Islamists. I contend we must remember we are still at war with Islamists, and must remain vigilant.

The military, I believe were politically correct in the case of Hasan, and were remiss in taking account of what is reported to be statements by him of "infidels" and justification for Jihad.

He is said to have made these kinds of statements while at Walter Reed Hospital and since. He also is reported to have underperformed at Walter Reed and was sent to Fort Hood with the higher up's knowledge of these disturbing reports.

Hindsight is of course 20/20, but we are still at war, and Hasan was clearly sympathetic with the enemy and said so. There were red flags, and they were ignored.

Would they have been, if Hasan was not a muslim? Would he have been given that recent promotion to Major, and allowed to continue to treat patients? Somehow I doubt it.

God bless and keep our troops, and their families who today are grieving and in shock that their loved ones are not even safe from attack on an Army base in the USA.

He was quick to jump to conclusion when Gates had trouble with the police.

Obama is a "petite frappe" as we say in French. Despiscable guy.

And a day without Ducky is great :) I don't have to skip his comments. Makes my life easier.

Is he going to play golf this weekend you think?

CHILLS?

More like a nauseous headache and a severe case of dysentery combined with a high fever, if you ask me.

This character is LOATHSOME and grows more repugnant every time it appears in public.

As long as he and his kind remain in power, America is MORIBUND. It's as though the entire nation were in Stage 4 cancer.

I feel we are attending our own wake.

When I heard his pathetic and cold speech yesterday I was livid with rage. I cannot believe the arrogance of that man. He behaved as if it were the Emmy's. Dispicable man.

Z, thank you for deleting Ducky's comments. I usually skip over him, but occassionally I read what he has to say and today I probably would have torn into him.

Today is a day of sadness and mourning. Our focus needs to be on the families and friends who are suffering so horribly.

Joe said...

Z: After leaving a comment on my post about President BO's response to Ft. Hood, you left another obviously meant for another blog. You might want to come copy it and paste it where it was originally intended.

I don't mind it being left on my blog, I enjoyed reading it. Just wanted to let you know.

Joe said...

Z: Oops. Turns out I read your comment before I read WWIT's comment. Now yours makes perfect sense. My Bad. (Does anybody say, "My Bad" any more?)

Tony C said...

Z! I lost you feed!

I don't know how, but my Dashboard dropped your feed. I thought maybe you had stopped blogging.

I'm back now and just in time to see you slam Ducky...awesome! I've missed ya Z!

Jen said...

He's a grown man in a teenager's body. Wait. That's an insult to all teenagers.

A shout out?
It's pathetic enough coming from the POTUS on a regular day, but after a mass murder on a military base?

I'm so disgusted.

Chuck said...

Z, good for you with the Duck. Sometimes I find him amusing, other times just immature and down right disrespectful - you know, a liberal.

Cube, your going with the 7-up thing huh? Funny.

Z, I was going to post on this yesterday but I could not find this video in it's entirety. Do you know as of the last time I looked the other sites are cutting off the first 3 minutes and going directly to his remarks on the shooting as if this is what the speech was about.

I decided to do something different with it.

"most of us would have appreciated hearing from our Commander in Chief on the death of AMERICAN SOLDIERS on AMERICAN SOIL:"



What did we expect from a scum sucking, goat licking, undercover "CIC" masquerading as an native born American? A man who's first TV appearance was on Al Jizza...a man who's first phone call to a "head of state" was to a Palestinian terrorist and Jew killer? A man who's first foreign appearance was in Egypt before more islamist terrorists calling America a muslim country and apologizing for America before the repressive, undemocratic, Fascist , Jew haters of the world...the new Berlin of the 1930's...A man who's managed to cover all traces of his past with law suits and subterfuge?

A man who cannot make a decision about the course and direction of this country's fighting islamist scum....since March of this year?

A coward, community organizer who's surrounded himself with marxists, radicals, commies and far left nut jobs?

We got what we asked for....all from guilt and the obsession to prove that we could look past skin color...only we forgot about character and experience.

I think what we need is to take this home bound terrorism right back to the muslimes right here. What we need is a group similar to the Minutemen...to hunt these bastards down...vigilante style...the same style that didn't wait for a scumbag San Francisco judge to determine justice...but from normal people who can see the truth and know what to do.

Watch these bastards run to the borders.

Surely the president is behind the killings.

Janie Lynn said...

I'm just tired of trying to err on the side of caution because God forbid you wouldn't want to offend a muslim!

And our dear president does a shout out to an Indian guy in the audience, praises their conference, whatever. I just loathe the man. He has no idea what is appropriate and nor does he care.


And then - don't jump to any conclusions because of his name - like BO didn't jump to any conclusions about that while police officer and his black friend. Ugh.

Pasadena Closet Conservative said...

He doesn't know how to spell leadership much less the courage and maturity to display it.

speaking of Fox's ratings, on election night alone they had more viewers (over 4 million) then the other three cable networks combined

Z said...

what great comments, everybody.

Janie Lynn; welcome to geeeZ. I love having new bloggers come and comment...I'll be at your place when I'm feeling up to visiting. Somehow, I'm finding myself staying here these days since my husband passed away (see posts below this)

Funny, everybody...but I REALLY DO NOT like thinking this ill about my American president..it bugs me to this day. The more he does, the more I dislike but I get no pleasure from it.

sue, what do you mean?
Don't you think he'd have been better off OPENING with the Ft Hood incident at the Indian Convention, or whatever it was?
That's my point....honor our fallen soldiers..this thing that happened is an American NIGHTMARE.

As I said in an earlier comment, all he had to have done is THIS to show he really does care and shows respect:
"I thank you for having me here today. I'd be remiss without first mentioning the Ft Hood attacks and asking for your prayers for those who have passed, for the wounded, and for their families. Please stop with me for a minute of silence. Now, I'd like to proceed with the order of business here, and thank you again for having me, it's a privilege and an honor......."

I can just see President Bush standing on the rubble of 9/11, giving a shout out with his bullhorn. This president is disgusting. If he couldn't load his teleprompter with something more appropriate, he could have just skipped this all together.

Birdie said...

It disgusted me. I'm astonished at the complete lack of basic courtesy and people skills.
We all knew how he felt about our soldiers as he's partied and carried on, not honoring his promise to listen to his military advisers. All the while our troops are abandoned in a war zone.
(p.s. Jen sent me)

psi bond said...

Ralph Peters, a Fox military analyst, contended in prepared remarks that the horrific massacre at Ft. Hood is "the second 9/11".

So I guess we must expect that some folks will demand we send troops to invade another Muslim country as an appropriate proactive response. And, that, to show he is not insensitive to what Americans really want, the president fly without delay to Ft. Hood to announce the invasion using a megaphone.

namaste said...

he is shameful as a president. and the voters that put him there should be hiding their faces.

Brooke said...

Sue: Yes it is absolutely Obama's fault.

The buck stops at the top, and this guy had been under suspicion and watch for months at least with no action taken by federal law enforcement or the military.

Obama should have cancelled the Indian summit, put on a straight face instead of doing disrespectful "shout outs" (which was an enormous insult), and made a respectful statement and then started firing those whose ineptitude led to this massacre.

The man on top has to take responsibility, something Obama as Commander in Chief should do. Instead, he will stay as far away from this as possible.

Hell, I'll bet he's already on the golf course.

psi bond said...

"President Barack Obama was supposed to leave for his first trip to Asia as president on Wednesday but the mass shootings at Ft. Hood Army Base have caused the White House [to] put its schedule in 'flux' according to the White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs.

The president will attend a Ft. Hood memorial service whenever it occurs, Gibbs said, and he indicated Obama will do so even if it means pushing back Obama's departure for China. Indeed, Gibbs told reporters that the White House has told the Pentagon that the president will plan his Asia schedule around the timing of the memorial service."

Z said...

Very telling quote from a liberal commenter:

"The president will attend a Ft. Hood memorial service whenever it occurs, Gibbs said, and he indicated Obama will do so even if it means pushing back Obama's departure for China. Indeed, Gibbs told reporters that the White House has told the Pentagon that the president will plan his Asia schedule around the timing of the memorial service."

Wouldn't it be wonderful if the president just did the right thing the first time ONCE?

heh. Just read my comment. He's a TEENAGER in a grown man's body.

kevin said...

I saw this over at the Dougout. Obama gave our fallen troops the same treatment he gives our allies. Obama went on a long diatribe about how evil America is earlier in the speech.

Z said...

Kevin, are you kidding?
America's evil AGAIN according to the America-killer?

I wish somebody could find some quotes from that. If we had a working media which loved America, we'd be hearing these things and Americans would be finally growing up and getting even angrier. Of course, if we'd had a working, honest media, he could never have been elected because all Americans would have paid attention to all of Obama's ties, early and later, his lies about how he knew Ayers (remember, his first remark was "we only live in the same neighborhood"), etc etc etc.

Anonymous said...

TMW, your summary was elegant, succinct and spot on! Thank you.

It looks to me as though everyone here "gets it," except the absent Ducky's Alter-Ego, who shall remain nameless, but you know who I mean, I'm sure, n'est-ce-pas?

I'm not sure of the timeline, but it looks as though The Big O decided to do "the right thing" AFTER he became aware of the negative impact his shallow, insensitive treatment of the Ft. Hood Massacre had on the American public -- despite the MSM's desperate attempts to shield The Big O from his folly.

What burns my butt is how everyone in public life always expresses far more concern for the effect an outrage like this might have on "The Muslim Community" than on the plight of the victims and their loved ones.

The crying need for us to become extremely WARY and PRO-ACTIVE against possible and most-likely sources of violent, destructive and disruptive activity is rarely-if-ever addressed at all.

I hasten to add this has been dishearteningly true ever since George W. Bush lost my confidence early in the game by telling us that "Islam is a religion of peace."

When his administration started PERSECUTING American troops for DOING THEIR DUTY while in harm's way, I began to DESPISE our government.

The problems we have right now are not just the result of policies put forth by DEMOCRATS, but also of the weak-kneed, spineless, self-serving, short-sighted attitudes expressed by The Party of Dumbo.

We need and deserve better representation than we've been getting for a VERY long time.

Don't just write to congress; BEDEVIL them. If enough of us make our feelings known -- OVER and OVER and OVER and OVEr again -- it will HAVE to have a positive impact.

SPEAK OUT where it should count most. TELL congress and the WH exactly how you feel in no uncertain terms.

May God bless America, while He DAMNS Obamica!

All this is just so...so...pitiful. Here we are faced with another terrorist attack by and of muslim scum terrorists...and we're quibbling and parsing about just what this "means". Look people...how many more examples of the "religion of peace" do we need? I think as Dennis Miller said..."we need less "peace" if this is what muslims have to offer. One more time and we're faced with a murderous cult that places itself as the victim..

Why don't we bother to face up to this? Why don't we want to avenge this? We all talk of supporting the troops...now we need a force to eradicate the scum from out armed services? We need a PC reason to rid the scum from this country?

Pitiful...it is pitiful that we don't rise up en masse and demand discharges for all muslims.

But I know...and you do too...we'll all beat out chests and talk about...those mysterious..."moderate" Muslims.


"Try to imagine that, if in 1943, a German-American US soldier named Hans Groebbler had suddenly pulled out a pistol and started shooting his fellow soldiers at Fort Hood, while yelling "Heil Hitler!" and "Deutchland Uber Alles!" Do you really think anyone would have puzzled over his motive? "


We're all such sissy assholes...we deserve what they heap on us.

great point about Goebbles there, Anonymous..He'd have been shot on sight.
As I said somewhere on the blog "Why are we worried about WHY HE DID IT?"

The answer is they can blame anything BUT his religion. Today, I'm hearing Muslims talking about how they feel so threatened when Muslims kill non-Muslims..they're afraid of US. ARE THEY KIDDING?

HoosierArmyMom said...

The real show of Obooboo's ignorance was not just the fact he gave a shout out to Dr. Joe Medicine Crow, a disrespectful thing to do when our troops were attacked on home soil, but the fact the idiot identified the Dr. as a MOH recipient!!!

As gawfer pointed out on another blog:

"As a point of fact, Dr. Joe Medicine Crow did not receive the Congressional Medal of Honor; that is for military. He received the Medal of Freedom. If Obama had half a brain not indulged in narcissism, he wouldn’t have made that error."

Seeming as Obama himself gave the Medal of Freedom to Dr. Medicine Crow... it shows his level of disrespect for the military that he cannot keep it straight. Giving a shout out was inappropriate in light of the pending news, getting the MOF wrong is even worse, IMHO.

And Bravo on exercising good "troll control"!!!!

First, one of my brothers-in-law is an example of the elusive "moderate Muslim." The moderates ARE on our side, there are more of them than you think, and most want tighter restrictions than we do. You could throw every Muslim enlisted man out, and they would still find a way to hit us. As for officers, it is unconstitutional to apply a religious test to military officers, among others. I agree that we must meet this threat head on, but not at the expense of sacrificing the constitution. There are ways and ways and we must work within our system to accomplish our goals.

Z said...

Right Wing Extremist; I agree with you. I know there are thousands of American Muslims who love this country and don't want anybody dead for not being a Muslim.

It's like the Mexicans I personally know are all Conservatives..Cubans, too... We tend to generalize about them all being here with their palms out for freebies and it's not right.

BUT...I wish Muslims would REALLY speak out; I wish we had news stories where a moderate Muslim turned an Imam in for spewing hate; or a moderate Muslim turned in a Muslim who was threatening us, or something.
Also, when supposedly moderate Muslim DO get profiled, at the airport for example, all we hear about is their anger about it....if more Muslims said "Yes, check me out, from head to toe...I want people being comfortable around me, I'm no terrorist...", we'd all be better off.
Instead, they call CAIR and get lawsuits going...and Americans get a little leery about that.

INTERESTING QUOTATION you may not have seen. It is relevant to ALL the issues we discuss, as I'm sure you'll see:

••• "We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order. We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries." •••

I totally agree that his remarks were inappropriate, as were many of the Conservative comments that I read last night. It's just hysteria from the right. I remember some inappropriate remarks made by W after 9/11. Those things happen. Presidents are first and foremost - people.

psi bond: They would say his motive for doing it is impure.

Z: I know, and the sad thing is they'd probably be right

They are probably radically partisan. Obama departed from his remarks to a summit of native American tribal leaders to comment on a tragic story of breaking news.

"My immediate thoughts and prayers are with the wounded and the families of the fallen," the president said. "These are men and women who have made the selfless decision" to protect the nation. "It is horrifying that they should come under fire at an Army base on American soil."

Z: We need someone who doesn't do the wrong thing first then dig his way out of it, hiding behind Robt Gibbs.

Robert Gibbs is Obama's official spokesperson. He was responding to a reporter's questions on the matter. It is a strongly partisan interpretation of events that Obama is hiding behind him.

I'm sorry, but I don't believe there ARE any "moderate" Muslims. there is only Jihad -- and Taqqiya.

They are all waiting like time bombs for the moment to strike -- even the ones who have married nice American girls and seem to fit in.

Islam isn't a RELIGION it is a depraved CULTURE and an aggressive POLITICAL MOVEMENT with a long tradition and oppression of sadistic violence that defines it. Muslims thrive on hatred, destruction and DEATH -- and the eternal longing for REVENGE. They LIVE for DEATH. They LOVE death.

And they are PATIENT -- willing to watch and wait for HUNDREDS of years, if necessary, to get even with those they hate.

Vengeance, and the cruelest types of punishment are the biggest part of who they are.

They do NOT belong here anymore than roaches belong in a decent, well-kept house.

And I am NOT advocating violence against them, only eternal wariness and profound distrust.

They regard DECEIT (Taqqiya) as a positive VIRTUE.

REMEMBER that, and DON'T believe them. DON'T be taken in.

The "converts" from "normal" Western backgrounds are the the least trustworthy of all, and having been born in the United States, Britain or Europe means NOTHING. They are Muslims FIRST, LAST and ALWAYS.

I'm sorry to speak so undiplomatically, but our LIVES and our CULTURE are at stake.

How many incidents of the Ft. Hood type must the West endure before "we" finally GET the message?

The heart of the matter is that the Obama Justice Dept. is too busy trying to figure how to prosecute military interrogators to inform the military that they have a soldier with outspoken terrorist sympathies on a military base.

I realize it is every leftist's dream to convince as many people as possible that all leftists are imbeciles, but Obama is in overkill mode. World Championship Competitive Paint Chip Eating Contest stupid.

The FBI has a soldier with outspoken Islamic terrorist sympathies and access to a military base under suspicion, and doesn't tell the military about it?

Thank God it didn't take a rocket-propelled anti-tank grenade into a school bus full of children to realize how stupid Obama's "counter-terrorism strategy" is.

Now if only we could convince Obama that he's an imbecile faster than he can convince voters that he's an imbecile.

Most rightwingers, the overwhelming majority of whom voted for bush, never said he was self-absorbed, unsympathetic, hollow, tasteless, or traitorous. Nor did they declare the buck stopped with bush when he failed to take any action that might have prevented 9/11.

When, in his initial response, he called the 9/11 perpetrators folks, they overlooked that.

Brooke said...

Clinton taking out OBL when he had the chance instead of ruining a perfectly good cigar might have done some good towards preventing 9-11, but I don't hear you whining about that.

OK, without using offensive language, you are waaaay off track with your continuous generalizations. As far as I'm concerned, we haven't had a good leader in the White House for many decades. Most politician's in America are all corrupt spin misters, looking to promote other interests besides those of the American people. Obama is flat out Anti-America as it was created by the founding fathers. He spends his time Apologizing to the world, leading us into a economic meltdown and trying to push us into globalism and make the freest nation on earth just another socialist hell hole.

When I think about the 1000's that died or were imprisoned trying to escape from East Berlin when the wall was up, just because freedom from government control became more important than their lives... well, I think people like you who have grown up in a free nation and obviously don't look at history, just don't get it. You won't until it's gone, you disagree with government and pay the price that many East Berliners paid.

Knock of the "Rightwinger Generalizations" dude or dudette or whatever you are. I was a life long Democrat who didn't wise up until the Clinton administration showed it's true ilk. Progressivism has paved the way to socialism or "Commie Lite". If you want to live that way... so be it, but I'm not sitting back while people like you destroy my freedom! Period.

"Most rightwingers, the overwhelming majority of whom voted for bush, never said he was self-absorbed, unsympathetic, hollow, tasteless, or traitorous. Nor did they declare the buck stopped with bush when he failed to take any action that might have prevented 9/11"

We never had to claim Bush was any of those Obama traits because Bush simply didn't HAVE THEM. He was the kind of president who visited our injured soldiers with no cameras...and, of course, the leftwing media played along..no story. Until after he was out of office and people came forward because they were sick of Obama's thugs' lies about Bush not caring.

No, Obama's big on PUBLICITY, having hired 3 bigwig producers from CNN and a msm network I've forgotten now, and BROTHER are THEY in full swing or what?
We had a president more intent on content...today, it's all about THE PRESIDENT ""mmm mmm mmm Barack Hussein Obama!" You remember the tune to that?

Dare I say it...I miss Bush. Yep. I do.

I remember his words after 9/11...his emotion and guidance were comforting to me even then. His love for his country was comforting to me.

I feel like our president does not care a lick about our country and that's very disconcerting.

BO has always shown only the emotion that he rehearsed. I don't understand how he fulled anyone so that he become our president.

I will pray for him. He did not become president without God's knowledge and will.

But I truly hope that other's will wake up before next presidential election.

Al Gore, Bill Clinton and Barrack Obama arrive for their Last Judgment...

God addresses Gore first:

''Al, what do you believe in?''

Gore replies: "Well, I believe that I won that election, but that it was your will that I did not serve... and I've come to understand that now.''

God thinks for a second and says:
"All right you are redeemed. Come and sit at my left.''

God then addresses Clinton. "Bill, what do you believe in?''

Clinton replies: "I believe in forgiveness. I know I've sinned, but I've never held a grudge against my fellow man -- not even against those harpies Lucianne Goldberg and Linda Tripp –– and I hope no grudges are held against me.''

God thinks for a long moment and then says, "All right. I'm not sure why, but I'll take your word for it -- and frankly those women were way out of line. You seem sincere. You are forgiven, Bill. Come and sit at my right.''

At last God addresses Barack Obama asking, "Barack, what do you believe in?''

Obama replies: "I believe you're sitting in my chair."

Brooke: Clinton taking out OBL when he had the chance instead of ruining a perfectly good cigar might have done some good towards preventing 9-11, but I don't hear you whining about that.

The choice was different than how you wish to characterize it, but I get the crude point ypu want to make that, when tragedy happens in a Republican administration, the buck stops with the previous president provided he's a Democrat. We know that OBL was not in charge of implementing the plan for 9/11. After getting the memo about OBL's intention to attack inside the U.S., had he, at a minimum, restricted airline passengers from carrying box cutters or other sharp objects on board, Bush could have blunted the plan.

The point of the post is that the buck stops at the top, and Obama's complete lack of decency and respect and dithering is beyond shameful.

"The point of the post is that the buck stops at the top" if a Democrat is on top.

Obama's comments on the horror of American soldiers dying on American soil captured the tragedy of the incident for most Americans, i.e., for those who are not obsessed with vilifying the president as the implacable enemy of our freedoms..

"My immediate thoughts and prayers are with the wounded and the families of the fallen," Obama said in his initial remarks on the incident. "These are men and women who have made the selfless and courageous decision to risk and at times give their lives to protect the rest of us on a daily basis ... It's difficult enough when we lose these brave Americans in battles overseas. It is horrifying that they should come under fire at an Army base on American soil."

beamish: Your dipshit imbecile golden boy in the White House "gave a shout" to a "Congressional Medal of Honor winner" that isn't a Congressional Medal of Honor winner.

Continue to defend the clueless.
It's hilarious

He may have been a Medal of Freedom winner; it was a simple error of mispeaking----the kind of mistake that all presidents have made at some time or other. What's hilarious is how much mileage rightwing folks here are attempting to squeeze out of it. You exaggerate its significance.

To each of us his sense of humor, eh, Z? What sends me into laughter is the zany argument that Clinton could have prevented it, but Bush, on whose watch it occurred, was helpless to do anything, and so the buck is passed to Clinton. On reading the infamous memo (assuming he did read it), Bush should have prohibited all sharp objects on board, including box cutters. Among other heightened security measures.

“The decider” (“I'm the decider, and I decide what is best. And what's best is for Don Rumsfeld to remain as the Secretary of Defense”) should not have shrugged and continued to take it easy at his Crawford ranch. Grounding ALL planes over America forever would have drawn flak from the airlines lobby, and rightwingers would have protested that such a draconian step would destroy the economy and, if the president is a Democrat, would be an unprededented usurpation of power.. Yet, in retrospect, grounding them until emergency security plans could be put in place would have been justified.

"Most rightwingers, the overwhelming majority of whom voted for bush, never said he was self-absorbed, unsympathetic, hollow, tasteless, or traitorous. Nor did they declare the buck stopped with bush when he failed to take any action that might have prevented 9/11.”

We never had to claim Bush was any of those Obama traits because Bush simply didn't HAVE THEM.

It’s funny that, in rightwingers’ brains, Bush had/has no faults to speak of, but Obama has them in spades. Obama goes at midnight to honor the fallen soldiers at Dover, and he’s reviled. Bush steers clear of Dover to eschew association with the cost of his war, and he’s honored for it by the right.

No, Obama's big on PUBLICITY, having hired 3 bigwig producers from CNN and a msm network I've forgotten now, and BROTHER are THEY in full swing or what?

Contrary to abundant discordant rightwing insinuations, it is doubtful that Obama had anything to do with that tune that the right is anxious to remind everyone of.

Obama well knows that he is far from being able to boast “Mission accomplished". He made that plain in his humble response on unexpectedly being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

Ya, obama goes at midnight because they were being taken off at midnight.
It was good to honor the dead.
While he's deciding whether or not to honor the request of generals with years of experience, to help our soldiers already in Afghanistan.
nice

I'll bet that wasn't political.

Ya, box cutters; everybody knows that's what the muslims would have used.

Ya, rightwingers refuse to give Obama credit for adjusting his schedule to the event. If it was good to honor the dead, it would have been a good thing for bush to do.

While he's deciding whether or not to honor the request of generals with years of experience, to help our soldiers already in Afghanistan.
nice


Nice that he is following the example of Bush when generals told him more troops were needed in Iraq.

Should the question of whether to send in additional troops to help the troops already there be left to generals with more military experience than the president? The Constitution would have to be amended for that, since it gives the president control over the military.

I'll bet that wasn't political.

Do you think Bush did not make any political decisions concerning the troops in Iraq? The truth is, sending in troops has political consequences both at home and abroad. Ya!

Ya, box cutters; everybody knows that's what the muslims would have used.

Ya, Barbara Olson reported hijackers with box cutters on Flight 77. Do you think she was lying? No rational person believes Bush was powerless as president to take any preventive action.
