Why did Obama jump on the police officer but not the crazy major?

    why is it OK to assume the worst about police officers, without the evidence, but necessary to give the benefit of the doubt to muslim jihadists? Obama did great harm by exhibiting stereotypical behaviour towards the police last summer and then tried to tie the reason for that crackpot major to the US military. what's up with that?

    in the Gates affair it was assumed that the cops were guilty, when they were not. in the murdering major affair it was assumed that it was a 'random' event that had nothing to do with him being a muslim, which it was.

    I'm looking for something to support your allegation in the OP that Obama tried to tie the reason for that crackpot major to the US military.

    OK, I went back and listened to the press conference again and he didn't imply that the military was involved. I must have been confused because of all the stories that CNN were doing on PTSS, and the bias against muslims in the military. But Obama did spend the first couple of minutes shouting out to his friends and congratulating himself and others before he even mentioned Ft Hood.

    It was an already scheduled news conference about the meeting with the Native American tribal leaders. Would you rather he not talk about the Ft. Hood tragedy at all?

    Because Obama (contrary to what he'd like us to believe) is a MOSLEM.

    Doh! :rolleyes:

    Which absolutely *floored* me when he did that.

    Can you imagine if Bush had been scheduled to speak to a group of Halliburton executives on 9/11, and instead of delivering the Presidential condolences and the "rally round the troops" speech we expect of our CinC on such occasions, Bush gave 5 minutes worth of shout outs to his Halliburton buddies and made several self-congratulatory remarks/pats on the back--all while treating the occasion as a social call. What would the libs have done? They'd have gone through the fucking roof....

    Hell, ALL AMERICANS would have, and rightly so.

    WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG with Obama? WHY did he handle this event like a common social call?

    WTF? It *still* boils my blood....
