The real President (GWB) visited with the wounded soldiers and others at Fort Hood Military Base. Yes, former President George W. and former First Lady Laura Bush visited with our troops Friday night. This was an answer to prayer. GWB loves this military. He displayed this love time and time again when he was in office. It is right and proper that he and Mrs. Bush would show up and comfort them at this very troubling time as he has done so many times before. I am so certain that the spirits of the many wounded soldiers and their comrades were lifted tremendously as they were greeted by these two welcomed visitors.
I would not be surprised to learn that the despicable handling of this terrorist attack by the current Commander-in-Chief has pissed-off President Bush. He was dedicated to the members of our fine group of men and women in the U.S. Military. And they loved him too as this old photo of one of his visits to see them in Qatar displays……
It is a national shame that President Obama has disrespected the American military and public in the manner that he has since the most horrific terrorist attack since 9/11 took place on American soil last week.
I cannot wait for the day that Obama is escorted to a waiting helicopter on the lawn of the White House to deliver him back to the Chicago Swamp.
God bless our men and women of the military. We love you.

Former President George W. Bush and his wife Laura Bush quietly visited the wounded from the Ft. Hood massacre on Friday. Barack Obama mentioned the attack at the end of some comments he made at a conference and on Saturday, Obama headed out to Camp David for a little R&R. Bush visits Ft. Hood, Obama goes to Camp David. What is wrong with this picture? Even more troubling, is there an Obama, Hassan connection?
It has been a bit disconcerting that the President of the United States has seemed so terribly disengaged from a terrorist attack on a military base in the heartland of the United States. On American soil. He gave some lip service to the ‘horrific outburst of violence’ at the end of some comments he made at the end of the Tribal Nation Conference on the day of the attack. He warned people to not ‘jump to conclusions’ – you know, like he did when a white police officer was doing his job and got cussed out by one of Obama’s friends and they all ended up having to have a ‘beer summit’ with the President to improve race relations. Yeah, don’t jump to conclusions like he does.
Of course, the reason he warned about jumping to conclusions is that it turns out that the Army Major is a muslim with a muslim name. Major Nidal Malik Hasan. He’s the alleged perpetrator, traitor and enemy combatant who cornered a large crowd of unarmed Soldiers in the Soldier Readiness Center at Ft. Hood in Killeen, Texas.
Okay, so we won’t jump to conclusions, Mr. President. But the question remains, why has the president shown so little interest in an attack being perpetrated by an enemy combatant on a military base on American soil? Why the downplaying? Rationalizing it away? Giving his family in Palestine a voice via American media outlets to decry the Global War on Terrorism? The spin seems to be that he’s disgruntled, mistreated by his peers for being muslim, scared of being deployed. Yada-yada.
The other side to that story comes from virtually everyone else who tells us that he initiated arguments with peers at work, couldn’t relate to the Soldiers he was ‘treating’ at Walter Reed Hospital and apparently told everyone within listening distance that he was ‘muslim first, American second.’ He also made statements to many people that he viewed an attack on an Army recruitment center as justified and that muslims should take up arms against American troops.
This is NOT a disgruntled, mistreated guy who was picked on because he’s muslim. This is an enemy combatant and a traitor to the United States.
Meanwhile, former President George W. Bush and his wife Laura Bush quietly visited the wounded from the Ft. Hood massacre on Friday. They didn’t allow photo opts, rather quietly visited the wounded. They are said to have spent hours there and were very concerned and comforting to the wounded and grieving.
Obama, on the other hand, the President of the United States, hasn’t gotten around to getting down to Texas yet. He’s just been so busy, don’t cha know. Here is Obama’s schedule for Saturday.
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
Perhaps he simply doesn’t care. Or perhaps, he’s having to try to figure out how to keep people from finding out that the terrorist who attacked our Soldiers at Ft. Hood was a member of Obama’s transition team. He was a member of the Homeland Security Policy Institute. It’s on page 32 of the Obama Transition Team documents.
Is that Obama, Hasan connection the reason that Hasan has been under investigation for six months and yet was free to go about a military base undeterred? Obama IS the commander-in-chief after all. Food for thought and something that makes you more than a little sick to your stomach.
One has to wonder how deep this rabbit hole goes. Barack Hussein Obama, hmmm, hmmm, hmmm.
You can see the odd comments Obama made, seemingly as an afterthought, about the Ft. Hood Army base massacre at the end of his comments at the Tribal Nation Conference on November 5, 2009. That conference is a whole other story.
