Couple this with Obama's initial response to the Ft. Hood mass murder and it just makes my skin crawl (emphasis mine) ...
Debate on the House floor had already begun when Obama strode into a closed-door meeting of the Democratic rank and file across the street from the Capitol to make a final personal appeal to them to pass his top domestic priority... Participants also said Obama had referred to this week's shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Texas, in which 13 people were killed. His remarks put in perspective that the hardships soldiers endure for the country are "what sacrifice really is," as opposed to "casting a vote that might lose an election for you," said Rep. Robert Andrews, D-N.J.
Now compare our current President's behavior to those of our former President...
Former President George W. Bush and his wife Laura secretly visited Fort Hood last night and spent "considerable time" consoling those who were wounded in Thursday's shooting spree, Fox News has learned.
The Bushes entered and departed the sprawling military facility in secret, having told the base commander they did not want press coverage of their visit, a source told Fox News.
We've got the Marxist in chief telling us to not jump to conclusions about a Muslim soldier going on a rampage and killing 13 people (actually should be 14 since one of the victims was pregnant)at Ft Hood then using the same incident to promote his comrades' socialist takeover of healthcare.
Obama is still dithering on how many troops (if any) to send to Afghanistan in response to Gen. McChrystal's request while American blood is still being shed. Then goes to Dover for a photo-op with heroes who gave the ultimate sacrifice with a half-assed salute that is more of an insult than a tribute.
WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE??
But don't worry - Obama will be at the Memorial Service for the Ft. Hood victims and the teleprompter in chief will make sure he doesn't give any shout-outs before his memorial speech.
It's a wonder that Obama isn't struck by lightning every time he mentions his "compassion" and "gratitude" for the members of our Military. Heck, it's a wonder Obama isn't struck by lightning every time he opens his mouth since nothing but lies come out of that velvet throated maw.
Sigh... This Hope and Change Thing is destroying our country.
I miss W.
