Update: Bush Visits Fort Hood! – Obama To Camp David, Not Fort Hood???

By
November 7, 2009

Update: Via Twitter – Fox Reports GWB and Laura spent a few hours at Fort Hood, no photo ops. Now that's a CIC.

Are you kidding me? Camp frickin' David? What, does he have a tee time close by? For heaven's sakes, he's the CIC. And he's taking the weekend off? This guy simply doesn't care. Unbelievable via Fox.

11:25AM THE PRESIDENT addresses the House Democratic Caucus – Cannon House Office Building

2:30PM THE PRESIDENT makes a statement to the press on Health Care – Rose Garden

2:45PM THE PRESIDENT and THE FIRST LADY depart The White House en route Camp David – South Lawn

    NOt only that he is totally dissing the ceremony for the USSNew York–he should be THERE not in the backroom with the Demonrats destroying our Health Care system. How red do the flags have to be people? The man is not loyal to the United States!

  2. oldtimer says:

    W and Laura went and visited our injured FT.Hood Hero’s without fanfare or photo op. THey have class and genuine love and respect for our Military. The O’s could care less. Jug Ears was more concerned about Prof Gates than our Hero’s.

    Riehl today:
    “For heaven’s sakes, he’s the CIC. And he’s taking the weekend off? This guy simply doesn’t care.”
    Riehl last week:
    http://www.riehlworldview.com/carnivorous_conservative/2009/10/obama-from-wh-to-twl-in-four-short-years.html
    “Meanwhile, [Obama] managed to slip off to Dover AFB between 12:30 and 4 AM last nightto greet returning caskets of 18 servicemen recently killed in Afghanistan. Despite the late hour, the event was anything but discreet. Turns out they managed to get a family of one, Army Sargent Dale R. Griffin, to agree to allow press coverage of the 15 minute ceremony, securing an inspiring photo op for the event. Maybe he wasn’t tired, not having played golf that day, so far as I know, and had some time after a movie.”
    It’s obvious that for petty whiners like Riehl, it really doesn’t matter WHAT the president does. It’s WHINE if he does, WHINE if he don’t.

  4. syn says:

    “The man is not loyal to the United States!”
    This is because Obama is President of the 57th State; the 57th State which does exist in the United States of America

  6. Rick Caird says:

    That Bob is kind of a silly guy, isn’t he. Obama arranges to meet to meet returning coffins from Afghanistan for a photo op and finds a family to meet with after 12PM, But, Obama ignores major, unexpected casualties at a domestic base in favor of lobbying Congress and going to Camp David. In the meantime, Bush quiety goes to Fort Hood, making it a point to do so without news coverage. Bob thinks not only are these actions equivalent, but also the act of meeting coffins in Dover excuses the CIC from going to his troops.
    Bob sure is silly.

    “It’s obvious that for petty whiners like Riehl, it really doesn’t matter WHAT the president does.”
    if this was the only place where obama’s my pet goat moment drew notice, you might be onto something.
    I’m seeing this line of criticism bubbling up all over the place.
    I saw the speech he gave…
    2 minutes of healthcare, followed by his assessment of reality at fort hood.
    The wh fumbled bigtime, for leting obama try and slip in a “two-fer”. Just try to judge your rxn if bush had chosen to use his bullhorn moment to endorse tax cuts, before addressing the tragedy of 9/11.
    Do I blame obama?
    he’s not smart enough to figure it out on his own, but the staff behind him blew it. They knew at around 2pm that he would have to make an address, and saw it as ‘another’ shot at getting the messiah to plug healthcare, as the nation would be drawn to the moment.
    I tuned in to hear him speak about the incident, ala ‘consoler in chief’. His priority was healthcare for 2013…
    loser.

    For some of us, we might consider the Ft. Hood shootings to be a tragedy. Not the wing nuts. To them it’s a golden opportunity to unite in more bitching and whining about Obama. So typical. You’re using these deaths for cheap political posturing. Have you no shame?

  13. Philip McDaniel says:

    I take strong issue with your comments, Bob. You get on here to exploit anything that occurs and to cast aspersions on anyone who is not “you” and your ever-loving bunch of left wing loonies. As if any of you had a clue as to what those of us on the right truly think and worry about.
    You know, I’m really getting tired of listening to a scumbag like you and the others of your ilk that pervade the airwaves and internet. Go back to whatever it was you were doing before you felt compelled to scribble your nonsense here. Sit down in a corner, try on silly hats, dance, pick your nose, do whatever it is that morons do. But do it among your kind.

  14. Bob says:

    “I take strong issue with your comments, Bob. You get on here to exploit anything that occurs and to cast aspersions on anyone who is not “you” and your ever-loving bunch of left wing loonies. As if any of you had a clue as to what those of us on the right truly think and worry about.”
    Spare us your phony posturing, Philip. These deaths are not the personal property of the wing nut movement and don’t deserve to be demeaned by your insincere whining. Show a little class. It’s not about Obama, it’s something really tragic that happened, as these things sometimes do. Neither Obama nor Bush are trying to politicize it, YOU are. So spare us the phony outrage.

  15. Bob says:

    Oh, take a gander at this, you hypocrites:
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/11/07/AR2009110702083.html
    “WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, will attend a memorial service in Fort Hood, Texas, on Tuesday for victims of a mass shooting.”
    Now I’ll expect you all to immediately pivot into the “Obama is just a narcissist and this is just a photo-op” routine. Like I said, WHINE if he does, WHINE if he doesn’t.

  16. Tuesday? Why not already?
    “The bodies of the 13 personnel who died were transported through a “ramp ceremony” to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware for a dignified transfer, he said. It was a “truly moving ceremony.”"
    http://www.cnn.com/2009/CRIME/11/06/texas.fort.hood.shootings/index.html
    Oh, that’s right. When and if he gets around to it. After all, he endorses and supports terrorists like Bill Ayers who were plotting to kill hundreds of US soldiers, so he’s probably upset that someone stopped Hasan before he REALLY got started.

  17. Dan Riehl says:

    Of course Obama didn’t politicize it, Bob. There’s golf to be played. No doubt his handlers are salivating now at the speeches to come showing his pain and tremendous sorrow. But going to Fort Hood where military folk died while he allows them to die in Afghanistan and dithers about might mean bad headlines. So it must be avoided at all costs until the moment suits him. Then he will pounce on their corpses like the pigeon from Chicago he is and tear at them as the embattled commander he isn’t and will never be.

  18. templar knight says:

    STFU, BOB! You and your ilk could care less about the military, including that dufus sitting in the WH. Why don’t you just admit the truth, it’s damn obvious. Yeah, you’ll admit the truth about the same time you asshats figure out what caused the attacks on our soldiers at Ft. Hood. The rest of us already know. You and that fool in the WH can say stress…and multicultural…and all the other bullshit you’ve used before when dealing with these Islamic bastards, but that doesn’t change the motive for the attacks, which is jihad. My sincere hope is that one of these jihadist bastards kills you or yours. You wouldn’t even wake up then, but would go suck his ass some more, trying to figure out what could cause such a thing. You liberals make me want to vomit.

  19. baldilocks says:

    He should have been down there yesterday at the earliest, today at the latest. Period. That’s what a commander does under such conditions.

    What? The “Rookie and his Wookie” are going to show up at Fort Hood? I’m sure she’ll be wearing another red dress and high heels too!

  21. Obama’s behavior is no surprise. The Obama Party has repeatedly endorsed and supported resolutions and laws that declare US soldiers “uninvited and unwelcome intruders”.
    http://www.dailycal.org/article/100144/city_council_passes_motions_criticizing_marines_of
    But that’s no surprise; the Obama Party base and Barack Obama himself are viciously anti-military and in fact support and endorse those who murder US citizens and troops.
    http://hotair.com/archives/2008/06/12/jodie-davis-code-pink-founder-obama-bundler-osama-apologist/
    Bob is simply spinning for Obama, like Bob always does. Bob isn’t capable of independent or intelligent thought. If you want to see something hilarious, ask Bob why he supports warrantless wiretapping when Obama does it since Bob screamed it was an impeachable offense and a violation of the Constitution under Bush. There simply is nothing that Obama does that Bob doesn’t support.

  22. We have to forgive the desperate Bob. His idiot Obama made another huge boo-boo yesterday.
    “Democrats counter that their agenda has kick-started a recovery on Wall Street, even if it hasn’t trickled down to the job market yet, and that Republicans are putting what they’ve begun at risk.”
    http://meganmcardle.theatlantic.com/archives/2009/11/worst_talking_point_ever.php
    So now the Obama Party admits that all it’s doing is trying to help Wall Street and that they believe helping Wall Street businesses creates jobs.
    Which is exactly opposite to what the screaming Bob has said, which is that doing such a thing is putting the interests of “big business” ahead of people.
    The lies the Obama Party and its paid whores like Bob keep telling keep unraveling more and more every minute. Now watch as paid whore Bob tries to spin and duck by claiming that Republicans are bad, rather than confront the hypocrisy of his own party and what he says.

  23. And wow, even the Chicago papers that were such good worshipers of the Black Messiah are now starting to demonstrate that he, well…..LIES.
    “More than $4.7 million in federal stimulus aid so far has been funneled to schools in North Chicago, and state and federal officials say that money has saved the jobs of 473 teachers.
    Problem is, the district employs only 290 teachers.
    “That other number, I don’t know where that came from,” said Lauri Hakanen, superintendent of North Chicago Community Unit Schools District 187.
    The Obama administration last week released the first round of data designed to underpin the worthiness of its economic stimulus plan, which so far has directed $1.25 billion to Illinois schools. That money has helped save or create 14,330 school jobs in the state, the administration claimed.
    But those statistics, compiled initially by the Illinois State Board of Education, appear riddled with anomalies that raise questions about their validity, according to a Tribune analysis of district-by-district stimulus spending and other state data. Many local school officials were perplexed by the stimulus data attributed to their districts.
    In the official report, Wilmette Public Schools District 39 was credited with 166 jobs saved by stimulus aid. Superintendent Raymond Lechner said the number should be zero.
    At Dolton-Riverdale School District 148, stimulus funds were said to have saved the equivalent of 382 full-time teaching jobs — 142 more than the district actually has.
    A similar discrepancy was found in data for Kankakee School District 111, where the stimulus report logged the equivalent of 665 full-time jobs saved. “That’s impossible,” a top Kankakee school official said, adding that the entire payroll — full and part time — is 600 workers.”
    http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/education/chi-education-stimulus-04-nov04,0,4659134.story
    Obama knows that stupid liberals like Bob won’t question anything that he does or says; this is why these sort of things happen. He knows that Bob will sit there and spin how you can “save” 382 jobs when it’s 142 more than the district has in the first place. He knows Bob is just a paid whore who will do and support anything that Obama says as the gospel truth, and scream how Republicans and anyone else are hatemongering wingnut racists for daring to point out that Obama is wrong or to criticize him.

    The truth is, Liberals could give a rats tail about Americans Service men a women being killed, Code Pink and their type revel in the death of our Soldiers, and then protest at the funerals with disgusting slogans and banners to provoke grieving families. The only tragedy Liberals and their hero’s see is that the shooter was not killed and is not now frolicking with his allocation of underage virgins. The left looks for a free ride on the back of others sweat and blood. If I might paraphrase the Reverend Wright, not God Bless Liberals but God Da&$ Liberals and the filth of their degenerate minds.

    Sparkman anyone? You can step down off your soapbox. Amateur hour is over, and you missed your cab.
    Obama is rumblin’, fumblin’, stumblin’ his way through this presidency so far. He missed on Honduras, Russia, hell he missed on almost everything so far. For a man who was purportedly intelligent, he seems to be making a lot of mistakes. A tragedy like this is on the scale of drop everything and go.
    I will take GWB’s “7 minutes of stunned” to Obama’s “gotta make a shoutout to my boys in the back row” crap any day of the week. We got campaigned to death on this man being such a professional, well where the hell is it?

    clearly the stimulus is working.

  31. Bob says:

    Looks like I hit a nerve. The volume of posts indicates that you recognize your own hypocrisy and are now furiously trying to deny it. The whining will continue until you’ve wrung enough faux outrage out of this “controversy,” and then you’ll be off to the next hissy fit. Anyway, I’m glad I could help you recognize your own phoniness and hypocrisy. Maybe some day you’ll thank me for trying to keep you honest.

    There’s a big difference between hitting a nerve and explaining to the village idiot that well, he’s an idiot . You,Bob, is known to be a village idiot and people who are much more mentally and emotionally mature than you want you to understand this fundamental truth. He is the Commander in Chief of the United States military and one of his basic duties is to go to Fort Hood and console the families of those who were killed and wounded in that assault privately without the media present. That is his job and not Camp David to take the weekend off.

    “President Obama spent nearly two hours this afternoon meeting privately with soldiers and their families at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.
    While there, he awarded two Purple Hearts, the White House said.
    No press was allowed to witness the visit, but an administration staffer told the pool which accompanies the president when he leaves the White House that Obama “visited with 19 soldiers, three families of soldiers in the ICU, as well as hospital staff.”
    God, did you guys pick a bad couple of days to display your petty, clueless hypocrisy. Now let’s see: Walter Reed Medical Center, “purple hearts” and “no press.” Let’s see if y’all can somehow manage to find fault with some aspect of this . . .

    president uses fort hood to argue for health care?
    in all seriousness, i don’t blame obama on this.
    it’s rahm’s fault. the healthcare group at the wh is surprisingly fulfilling the same role as the WHIG(wh iraq group) under bush, only on a higher scale. it seems policy decisions are being gatekept by his healthcare group-
    not a problem if the matters are related to healthcare, but a tad insane if they are bleeding into ALL his messaging. the same group is largely behind the push against fox. bambi isn’t nixon, but he is surrounded by nixonian figures. (i have even seen the rehabilitation of chris lehane…)
    it’s pretty clear rahm can’t juggle more than one ball at a time(although some may diagree ;). starting to look like he can’t even be sure about the one ball he is working with…

    As I said in an earlier thread, do you really suppose that anyone in the liberal sphere considers you guys to be enough of a threat that they’d PAY someone to waste their time posting here? No, I just do this to marvel at the depth of pettiness and intellectual dishonesty among the teabagging crowd. But seriously, I like to see what you guys have when you’re challenged to back it up with either coherent ideas, sincere principles or honest facts (not much, apparently). It’s also a good way to learn about issues by debating with other people.
    Even though it gets pretty snarky at times, I still don’t hold any serious grudges against the regulars here. I’m just here for a discussion and a little give-and-take. And considering the extent to which some of the regulars can dish it out, I find their piteous complaints about me to be pretty hilarious sometimes.

I am so sick of this! Our kids enlist to serve their country and to get an education, and all you do is put us down and have the nerve to say democrats (like myself) don’t care, well F U all!

Far too blatant and just short of wearing tailored uniforms and such. Tis unfortunate that Obie needs a dance card to know what to do from one event to another.

You are an idiot with little or no knowledge about the situation at hand. There are at least three “regulars” here who have served in the military and supported our troops with treasure, blood and toil far beyond some three year enlistment. Speaking only for myself I have lost two friends in that sand box misadventure since June and I’ve had relatives there as well (home safe by grace). The young woman who stopped this muzzie terr is from VERY near my home which makes it a bit personal.

    Now here’s just a thought; ARMY and FBI are likely still snooping and pooping to find the bottom of this whole attack situation. Could people be being too hard on Obie about not going to Texas? Have we considered the possiblity that Secret Service have simply, quietly quashed what would be a very good political move? Now it’s fun to mimic leftists… a blast really. But remember how upset they were when GW wasn’t on the WH roof w/ a brace of Colt’s Patent Revolvers by noon on 9/11? Like I said, it’s a blast throwing lefty “feelings” back in their hollow cheeked faces but I’d feel slightly dooficious if I meant most of it.

    “NOt only that he is totally dissing the ceremony for the USSNew York….”
    Not to mention choosing not to attend the ceremonies for the 20th anniversary of the Berlin Wall coming down.
    Not to mention, after notifying them with a phone call placed “well past midnight”, announcing to the world that we would be pulling out of our missile defense agreement with Poland on the 70th anniversary of the Soviet invasion of Poland.
    No, I think there is a clear case to be made that Obama does not appreciate the military or what it does for our country. This is not just about Ft. Hood or the USS New York: he has shown this repeatedly through acts of omission and commission.

  55. Will says:

    Gee, Bob. I thank you for attacking my grammar instead of adressing the point of my post. It says more about your mental capabilty than my mastery of the English language.

    You know who you raving wingnuts remind me of? Jihadis. Your hatred for Obama and all things liberal is implacable, even to the point where one of you (templar knight) said to me that he hopes a jihadi “kills you or yours.” Yes, apparently, merely pointing out that wingnuts would criticize Obama REGARDLESS of what he did is now a capital offense. Your hatred goes WAAYYYY too far. You guys wallow in hatred. You have no ideas to do anything positive, you have no principles (because everything you complain about now you praised when Bush was president) and you apparently don’t even have any decency. Well grow up, whiners. Get a grip. Stop making asses of yourselves with your constant bitching and complaining. Try doing something positive for a change and maybe people would start respecting you.

  57. Okay “auntie” which injured soldier is your niece?
    Uh huh…..waiting, waiting….tic toc “auntie”…..oh, puleeze, so your niece was injured in the shootings and you are here on this blog to take US to task? Really? Aren’t there better things you could be doing?
    Like ,oh I don’t know…..being screaming mad about Muslim terrorists being pandered to in our military?
    But then, you would actually have to have a niece that was injured first right? Maybe you need to open a window in the mosque…you don’t seem to be getting enough oxygen right now…..
    And Bob….it’s a well known fact that Soros pays idiots like you to post on conservative blogs. In your case I would say he’s definitely not getting his money’s worth.

    Remember how I said the next thing Bob would do is scream that anyone who criticizes Obama in any way was a “racist”?
    On command:
    “Maybe it’s time for you to don a little verbal black face and mock that arrogant SOB real good. Come on, let it rip. We know you want to and you’re just INCHES away.”
    It’s almost too easy. LOL.

    Give Bob props fer tryin (though one does have to wonder how long the horse can stare at undrunk water).
    I don’t much celebrate anything television (though gotts to say Thank You Zenyatta!). But if I happen to be planted in front of the flat panel (like yesterdee just before post time). When Dub voybally slaps Billy (Bob) Clinton back to the last millenium, I’ll play along and watch :-)

    At 17:55 Bob says “I’m just here for a discussion and a little give-and-take.” yet his idea of “discussion” is to begin every post with “You know who you raving wingnuts remind me of?” His discourse would take up much less of Dan’s bandwith if he simply posted “skawk”. Give him a cracker and cover his cage someone, he contributes NOTHING. Yes, I realize that is the short definition of a libtard.

    For 7 years, Georgie managed to never see a dead body that he helped create. Now, he finally has a “Come to Jesus” and discovers that his policies have driven men crazy. It’s the Republicans playing politics as usual. Georgie isn’t fooling anyone except those in the ever dwindling GOP base.

  67. WAHOO WILLIE says:

    “For 7 years, Georgie managed to never see a dead body that he helped create.”
    Wrong again, as usual, however you want to phrase it. Another stupid lie at any rate. GW visited with many of the families of soldiers who died in his misadventure to the sand box….still does. Difference being that he did not drag the press around to inflict themselves on some poor family’s grief. I’ve been very much against Iraq from the beginning and A’stan for a while now. My reasons are several and have nothing to do with parrots and idiots from the left. However, I wont let you fools by with lying when I know better.

  68. WPE says:

    I doubt there’s anything Obama could do that would satisfy the ODS sufferers on this board. He’d always be doing too little, be too late, using it for political purposes, etc. etc. etc.
    I agree with Wahoo on our two wars. I used to be for Afghanistan. No more.

  69. WAHOO WILLIE says:

    @WPE Obie has done two good things that I wish had been done before I retired. He is killing Rumsfeld’s stupid a$$ NSPS pay system for federal employees and he has signed off on allowing FERS retirees to get credit for unused sick leave like CSRS employees do. Traditionally, Fed employees were encouraged to abuse sick leave rather than losing it. I knew guys with enough sick time to take off their final six months.

  70. Susie Q says:

    God I love to read the comments of ignorant racist;you make that CIC in the White House look better and better everyday. Keep up the hate; You see, Bob and the rest of you,most Americans do not want to go back down that hate-road again; and people like Bob and the other right wing-nuts,
    or should I just say “white supremacist” are going to help put this CIC right back in the White House. Ignorance is a bliss, and the perosn who will benefit in the end is OBAMA!! You haters haven’t learned a damn thing. You want to fight the man; try being smart instead of looking like ignorant “white trash”

  71. WAHOO WILLIE says:

    “Ignorance is a bliss…”
    Absolutely correct Suzie Q….being ignorant is probably why you think Bob is a right winger…..

    The folks at Ft. Hood have much more important things to do than wait on the President, which is what they’d have to do if he came there. Let them get on to important work.
    Nothing pissed me off more when I was in uniform than to have to play protocol instead of mission for someone coming for the dog-and-pony show.

  73. Cherie says:

    GW and Laura have nothing else to do! And just because Obama went to Camp David doesn’t mean he isn’t working. I would imagine he never stops! I also would expect that you will see him at Fort Hood for a memorial, but I suppose it’s easier to find fault. If he HAD shown up immediately right-wingers would have been saying that he was neglecting his other duties. I live in Killeen and I think the President is doing an OUTSTANDING job.
