Cue the president, cue the prompter ~ By Barbara Simpson

From WorldNetDaily
Barbara SimpsonBy Barbara Simpson Posted: November 09, 2009 ~ 1:00 am Eastern © 2009 Let's see. We have a major terror attack on this country's largest military installation: 13 killed, 31 wounded. The man identified as responsible for the mayhem is hospitalized. We're told he's in a coma; some reports say he's paralyzed. The ramifications of the situation are enormous. When the shooting stopped, we knew what happened but didn't know if it was a single incident or part of a plot. We didn't know the details about the person pulling the triggers. But we did know that in the midst of a military installation, where one would think security would be tightest, something went radically wrong. In light of that, what are we to make of the man who is president of the United States, the man who is commander in chief of the U.S. military, the man whose press office alerted media that he would be making a statement concerning the massacre? As the cameras cut to him, he ignored the massacre for almost three minutes, during which he gives a "shout-out" to a Native American, thanks staff for a meeting on Indian affairs and promises more progress making things right for tribes. Huh? Then, and only then, almost as an aside, he refers to an event that perhaps these people didn't know about. He told what happened at Fort Hood and expressed concern for the loss of life and injuries. Cool, calm, collected and remote. What about "first things first"? What about priorities? Why not speak of the massacre first? That affected everyone there and the millions worldwide awaiting his statement on TV. Virtually every broadcast outlet had a camera or microphone pointed at him for his reaction to this attack on the U.S. Army, in fact, an attack on the United States. What does he do? He fails the test, again. It's second on his list of important things to say. [CLICK HERE TO READ MORE]
