    It's been a whole four hours and Obama hasn't flown out to Fort Hood. I mean what the heck?! He should have run out the door and flew out there immediately. Why isnt he there already?!

    So what is that jackoff going to do when he gets there besides get into everybody's way and cause even more confusion then what is already going on? Fuck him and his photo ops.

    When he did talk about it on tv he started out by talking about some stupid thing and then as an afterthought talked about the shootings! I do think it was a good idea for him not to go right out there..could you imagine the confusion? They don't need him there right now.

    Just thought of something else...if Obama went out there, he probably would end up being shot!

    I think he's right in staying out of it. The survivors need treatment, not swarms of the secret service and press that accompany a Presidential visit.

    All he could do is get in the way...so it would be best if he just said "The victims have my condolences" on television and be done with it.

    What's he going to do other than make the situation harder for law enforcement to handle?

    Reasons he didn't go yet:

    1. They are still lining up the award to give him when he shows up.
    2. Michelle took Air Force One shopping today.
    3. Obama isn't very good at helping people with shots. (H1N1)
    4. He can't make up his mind.
    5. His generals told him to go soon. He hates that.
    6. No one wants him there either.

    If he were any kind of President, President Obama would already KNOW what to do.

    He should go out there personally, conduct the investigation himself, make any arrests (as warranted) of any surviving perpetrators (if any are still alive) and then personally handle the prosecution of any such surviving and arrested assailant.

    /sarcasm.

    He was addressing how under his administration things are going to be very different for Native Americans. Had a meeting today...

    Once he finished congratulating himself and his people, he got onto the 'most important' aspect of his job, the military and their well being. :eusa_eh:
