Those who hated former President Bush worked untiringly in the hours subsequent to the 9/11 attacks running down the man and his administration.
No example of this could be more clearer than the scoffing and ridicule that the president received for his none reaction on September 11, 2001 when the president sat in a scheduled event in a Florida class room reading to children and then suddenly it was whispered in his ear that a second plane commandeered by terrorist had hit the other New York tower.
Countless jokes and parodies have been made of the 2 to 7 minutes that the president remained with the children after being alerted of the attacks on Americans
Bush [sat] in a Florida elementary school classroom for several minutes after he was told of the second terrorist plane attack on the twin towers...But not so fast, not yet a year into his own presidency Barry Hussein Soetoro has his own “My little goat moment.”
Minutes of Silence That Should Live in Infamy: As Americans Leapt to Their Deaths from the Twin Towers, George W. Bush Sat Cluelessly in a Florida Classroom, Endangering the Lives of the Children Around Him, Until His Handlers Could Figure Out What to Do With Him –BuzzFlash Progressive Editorial (source)
I’m betting though that Progressives who are Liberals in sheep’s coating will prefer to call president Soetoro’s moment the more politically correct, “ A ‘Shout-out’ to Dr. Joe Medicine Crow” moment.
You see unlike president Bush president Soetoro had all morning to be briefed on the worse terrorist attack committed on the a military installation on U.S. soil in the history of the United States.
President Soetoro had all morning for his staff to prepare the most appropriate response in words to this horrific act of treason against America. Everything was lined up the media was in place waiting to hear from the man of words and what did he do?
President Orator came out like a two-bit rapper and gave a shout-out, something like;
“Can I get a woo-woo and a shout-out to Dr. Joe Medicine Crow! He’s a Congressional Medal of Honor winner, don’t cha know.That’s SNL material for sure but will they ridicule Soetoro like they did Bush? I wouldn’t hold my breath.
Now throw your hands in the air and wave ‘em like “u” just don’t care! Now somebody screeem!
Oh yeah, ‘bout that Fort Hood thing…”
ROBERT A. GEORGE reports On Chicago’s NBC News site that after news broke 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. (see story)
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 (see 6:20 video) 2:28mins in the president finally acknowledges the shooting.
In the words and manner of the Progressives it should be noted that president Soetoro’s speech was Minutes of Speechifying That Should Live in Infamy: As 12 Americans Lie Dead and 30 wounded in the Worse Terrorist Attack against a Military Installation on U.S. Soil in History , Barry Hussein Soetoro stood speaking Cluelessly in a Tribal Nations Conference hosted by the Department of Interior's Bureau of Indian affairs where he give a ‘shout-out’ to a man who wasn’t there and who didn’t receive the award that Soetoro said he won.
It's no wonder that Americans are more and more convinced that this president doesn’t really care about the troops or for America for that matter.
Like me, will somebody Screeem! (For Freedom)
