    I imagine his handlers have yet to formulate Obama's position for him - and he consistently appears unable to form his own opinion without fumbling n bumbling the message.

    We need a leader willing to point the presidential finger across the seas to these damn scourge pirates and tell them this will not stand.

    Perhaps Obama will say that - but we have to wait until it is teleprompted for him...

    Why on earth would they want the POTUS to answer questions about his job?

    BO never fails to disapoint, it takes a lot of gall to say he wants to talk about housing when Americans are taken hostage.

    I've seen that teleprompter analogy on 3 other message boards. Must be yaw'll got your talking points instructions du jour via e-mail this morning, eh?

    Just what is it you'd like Obama to say, personally? It isn't as though he has a direct phone line to the raft.

    It's been headline news all day long since the hijacking was upgraded to a hostage situation and FBI negotiators involved. But why would you think any "public" announcement should be made which would risk the captain being held hostage getting killed?

    When asked about it earlier today, Biden said this: “We’re not going to settle that here. This is being worked on around the clock since this happened. I’m not in a position right now to comment."
