Obama’s Frightening Insensitivity Following Shooting


It was always suspected that President Obama disliked our military, but it is now so clear that even the liberal media recognize the sheer insensitivity of the situation. NBC reports this in a clear way, but what they didn’t mention, and what I believe will open his supporter’s eyes is that this is who he is to the core. His radical associations with terrorists, racists, and hate groups are the foundation on which his ideological beliefs are built. His disdain for the men and women who made it possible for him to rise to his position of power is being unfolded before our eyes. This is no joke. This is who the country elected as our commander-in-chief; a person who despises the people he leads. Disgusting.

A bad week for Democrats compounded by an awful moment for Barack Obama.

President 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?

Anyone at home aware of the major news story of the previous hours had to have been stunned. An incident like this requires a scrapping of the early light banter. The president should apologize for the tone of his remarks, explain what has happened, express sympathy for those slain and appeal for calm and patience until all the facts are in. That’s the least that should occur.
