Way to Go America!!!!!

with 4 comments

In a televised press conference, immediately following the attack at Fort Hood, it took this president almost two and a half minutes to acknowledge the tragedy. I guess discussing a meeting with Native Americans was more important than acknowledging that twelve people were killed and thirty wounded on a US Army Base.

To make matters even more unbelievable, this president gives a “shout out” during his opening remarks.

A “shout out.”

What world leader speaks this way? How can anyone expect to be taken seriously when they talk like this?

Could you imagine John F. Kennedy, George Bush, Bill Clinton, The Queen of England or any other world leader for that matter addressing the press and giving a “shout out” to someone?

Imagine FDR in his radio address following D Day. “I’d like to give a shout out to my man Dwight D. Eisenhower for a job well done.”

Imagine?

Is it me?

Once again this president shows his ignorance and his inability to act like a president.

He has no clue.

Way to go America. Hope this was the change you wanted.

  1. For the fifty millionth time, it was not a press conference. The President was scheduled to address the convention. He did so for about thirty seconds before a giving a moving statement about the tragedy. Is this really all ya got?

    • Look pal, maybe you’re okay with your President speaking like some idiot on MTV. Hopefully, when you grow, up you’ll realize that leaders of nations should carry themselves in a little more high regard.

  2. Grow up? I guess you mean that figuratively since the first guy I volunteered for was Jimmy Carter.
    Sorry you have a personal problem with the phrase “shout out”…

    • Americans expect so much but accept so little.
