The Fort Hood terrorist attack and Obambi's "shout-out"Posted by DarthDilbert at 11/08/2009 06:18:00 PM
What he did by taking exactly 122 seconds to mention what happened on Thursday at Fort Hood, Texas should remain in the forefront until he leaves office on 20 January 2013. Can you begin to imagine what it had been like if previous Presidents had given a "shout-out" to someone before discussing major events? Can you picture President Ronald Reagan recognizing one of his former Hollywood pals before discussing the 23 October 1983 barracks bombing in Beirut, or when the Challenger exploded on 28 January 1986? What if President William Jefferson Blythe Clinton had pursed his lip and on 19 April 1995 took time out to recognize some friends from Little Rock in the audience before addressing the nation about the bombing in Oklahoma City? What if on the morning of 9/11 President George W. Bush offered his sympathies to the Texas Rangers for their 7-1 loss against the Oakland A's before addressing the deaths of 3000 American's? What if FDR had done this on 7 December 1941, or Johnson on 22 November 1963, and so on, and so on. If any of these President's had done anything remotely similar they would have been castigated around the world, but not Obambi. It's repulsive and disgusting.
Rather than apologize for America around the globe, he should apologize to the citizens of the republic which he represents.
