Patriot vs Communist

8 11 2009

Whether you Love or Hate George W. Bush, you gotta respect him. While Obama pushes the passage of Obamacare, something the majority of Americans DO NOT want, G.W. and his classy wife Laura quietly made their way to Fort Hood to offer their hearts and prayers for everyone affected by the terrorist shooting.

Here’s what Obama did on the very same day…

President Obama’s Saturday Schedule

 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

 

Then to add insult to injury here’s how Obama shows contempt for our military…

How a president responds to a crisis defines him. President Obama has shown how upset he was after the murder of abortion Dr. George Tiller and after the attack on the Holocaust Museum. But when it came to the Ft. Hood shootings, the president twice gave the incident a limited response …devoting little more than 4 minutes over two separate appearances to the 13 dead and 30 wounded.

In the Tiller case, the president was “shocked and outraged by the murder of Dr. George Tiller as he attended church services this morning.” In the case of the museum attack, Obama was “shocked and saddened by today’s shooting at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum.”

But when it came to the horrendous Ft. Hood shootings, the term “shocked” was nowhere to be found. Instead, the initial response was shoehorned into comments he made opening the White House Tribal Nations Conference. First there were a couple applause lines to Native Americans and Obama’s “shout out to that Congressional Medal of Honor winner,” who appears not to have won the medal. (Joe Medicine Crow won the Medal of Freedom — the nation’s highest civilian honor.)

Then the president addressed the shooting. While he called the incident “horrible” and a “tragedy” and urged “prayers,” the response seemed understated compared to the other incidents. Then, in true Obama fashion, he did manage to make the shootings at least in part about him. “I want all of you to know that as commander in chief, that there’s no greater honor but also no greater responsibility for me than to make sure that the extraordinary men and women in uniform are properly cared for and that their safety and security when they are at home is provided for us.”

Two minutes and 39 seconds later he was done and without even taking a breath back to talking about the Native American event. Nowhere in his speech or his remarks the next day did he even acknowledge that the attacker was a Muslim. In his statement after the museum attack, he correctly criticized “anti-Semitism and prejudice” but made no mention of religion in the latest incident.

The Nov. 6 appearance took up just 1 minute 30 seconds and this time it was paired with his remarks on the bad unemployment numbers. In all, he spent 4 minutes 9 seconds to address the attack on 43 Americans …less than 6 seconds per person.

George W. Bush Secretly Visits Fort Hood Victims

The Bushes entered and departed the sprawling military facility in secret, having told the base commander they did not want press coverage of their visit, a source told Fox News. 

Former President George W. Bush and his wife Laura secretly visited Fort Hood last night and spent “considerable time” consoling those who were wounded in Thursday’s shooting spree, Fox News has learned.

The Bushes entered and departed the sprawling military facility in secret, having told the base commander they did not want press coverage of their visit, a source told Fox News. 

The couple was described as “deeply concerned” about military families on Fort Hood after Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan allegedly opened fire on soldiers and civilians, killing 13 and wounding 38.

The Bushes, who have a 1,600-acre property known as Prairie Chapel Ranch less than 30 miles from Fort Hood in central Texas, spent between one and two hours visiting the wounded and their families.

It’s a matter of priorities. To President Bush, our troops were one of his top priorities. To bho, they aren’t even on the top 25 list. Can’t the American people SEE this yet?

Clearly, many Americans remain willfully blind, or they agree with Obama, or they just don’t care.

Rasmussen’s latest Daily Presidential Tracking Poll has 30% of likely voters strongly approve of Obama, 40% strongly disapprove. Overall, 49% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of Obama’s performance, whereas 50% disapprove.

So Americans really are split into two irreconcilable halves.

More depressing still is this: only 68% of conservative voters Strongly Disapprove of Obama!

The issue is not whether the people can see but rather can their leadership hear. The only “seeing” this creep is capable of is looking in a mirror.

Goerge Bush–love him or hate him–is/was a military man. Piloting a fighter jet aint bean bag. You cannot be indifferent to others and successfully operate one. You are dependant on them for support and they on you.

In church this morning we vets were called to the front to be acknowledged for service we performed in wars dating back to WWII. In gathering as a body, I found the most dependable, faithful, and hardest working church members represented in the group. Regardless of their civilian station they were brothers I knew I could depend upon to “watch my back.” To a man, they were not among the self serving, arrogant, haters of America so typified by the presidents attitudes. I am certain George Bush would have felt extremely comfortable with any one or all of them. I know I would have with him.

“I want all of you to know that as commander in chief, that there’s no greater honor but also no greater responsibility for me than to make sure that the extraordinary men and women in uniform are properly cared for and that their safety and security when they are at home is provided for us.”

In true Obama fashion? In true liberal fashion, Obama claims to be for very thing he undermines with PC measures that over rule common sense protections. In true liberal (Orwellian) fashion, Obama proclaimed himself to be for the troops while being against them, placing them in harms way leaving them twisting in the wind in Afghanistan. In true liberal fashion, Obama obfuscated the fact that he as Commander in Chief IS responsible for every act and policy of the military and every death of a soldier. We see the genuine remorse of President Bush over every death, what do we see from Obama? Platitudes. A leader husbands their assets and material resources as precious commodities, how much more so of human capital?

This is why a liberal should NEVER be President, let alone an inexperienced, incompetent, self involved Obama.

And did you notice that last part of his statement, “are properly cared for and that their safety and security when they are at home is provided for us.” Just imagine the tender mercies all of us can expect under ObamaCare.

Bush has more respect for our military in his little pinkie than The Traitor will never have. More so, The Traitor can’t even bother to fly across the world to recognize the fall of the Berlin Wall (but has no problem flying Air Force One on his own whims). He did give a speech and didn’t even mention Reagan. CIC – commie in chief!

Looks like, once again, our President was ‘acting stupidly’.
