Default YAY Obama! Way to address the country about Fort Hood.

Just watched Obama address the nation on the Fort Hood tragedy. Spend the first 5 minutes talking about what a great conference you are at, try to crack a joke, then finally get around to speaking about what happened at the base. Way to show your concern, Barry.

God, I'm so sick of this guy.

After 30 seconds of "uhhhh....thank you so-so for arranging this uhhhh...great conference" I had to turn it off. It should have started with something like "My fellow americans, a tragedy has just transpired within our own stateside military..."

I keep hoping that he'll prove us wrong. I'm starting to think he wont.

Well, what pisses me off is he is the Commander In Chief of the United States Armed Forces, and while the Army under his command has a horrific situation going on at one of it's bases, he schmoozes it up and gives shout outs to his buddies for over 2 minutes before he makes any mention of what is going on in Texas. The Ft Hood situation should be the most important thing he focuses on at that moment, but he treated it like it was an inconvenient afterthought.

When the 9/11 attacks happened, George Bush was hammered by the left for finishing reading "My Pet Goat" to those schoolchildren before making a statement, yet once again, Obama will get another pass, this time for doing what Bush got clobbered for.

Well, the key difference here is which side is screaming and which side is okay with it. Otherwise, it's the same friggin deal. Both sides are idiots who swap roles based on who didn't "win"; nothing new is happening here, get used to it.

The issue here is that people are only upset and ready to fix things when "their side" isn't the one running the show. There wasn't a conservative waving protest flags when Bush screwed up, and there isn't a liberal waving protest flags while Obama screwed/screws up. While I perfectly well agree with your sentiment, realize that human nature, at least in our current hyper-conditioned state, will keep that from ever happening.

You get what you deserve.
