Contrast

The way Obama “handled” the Fort Hood tragedy vs the way former President George W Bush did, with his wife, speaks volumes about the difference in character and leadership of these two men. Rather than say it myself, I will let a Hillary Fan blog do it. These Democrats had their eyes opened and they tell it like it is, as they see it.

Or course, Obama showed up for the funerals. There were a lot of cameras there. But Bush didn’t need any stinking press. He was there to console the grieving survivors and their families. Obama just wanted to give another pretty speech, which his usual fanboys are lapping up.

Obama is a talker, not a doer. He’s a great self promoter but what did he accomplish before being elected president besides getting good jobs? He barely showed up for his US Senate job and as state senator he voted present a lot. Say what you want about George W Bush, he did accomplish a lot in his life before and during his presidency. He won a war people said was impossible to win (Iraq), he pulled the economy out of deep recession after the dot com crash and 911. Sure, some people want to blame him for our current economy, but the evidence points elsewhere. Presidents do not control spending and oversight, congress does. Guess which party has been in power the last three years, when things went south? And they’re doing such a great job solving problems now. Just look at all the jobs they created with that stimulus money. Ooo Ahh.

Yeah, I know. Both parties have a hand in the deficit and so on. The truth is neither could have made that big a mess without the other party having a hand in it. But right now we need people have constructive solutions and one thing’s for sure. The prez isn’t one of them.

  1. And to think, Sarah Palin could have an office in the White House right now.

    In all seriousness, Obama does need to get more accomplished if he wants to stay there past 2012. That’s coming from someone who voted for him.

    Maybe it’s just me, but the public handling of the grief of soldiers being killed by any president is really not my concern. I’m of the opinion that Obama could have done the exact same thing as Bush, and he would then be criticized for being a copycat. Really, if he had the power to resign and put McCain, or McCain’s running mate, or any other popular Republican in his place (which, obviously, he does not), his opponents still wouldn’t be happy. So, the only response I have to the critique of his speech is….whatever.

  2. Yeah, instead we have Biden. What a genius!

    I don’t really see the point of your reasoning here. Obama did not do anything besides look like a fool after the Ft Hood shootings. His speech was OK, but few will remember it despite what his promoters say.

  3. “Yeah, instead we have Biden. What a genius!”

    Granted, he’s prone to saying crazy stuff, and I’d prefer he never have to be acting president, but between him and Palin, I still think we got a better deal.

    “His speech was OK, but few will remember it despite what his promoters say.”

    I don’t remember it, because I didn’t watch it, because I was busy doing other things. I have no need for Obama or any other politician to make me feel better about a tragedy, I don’t care how well or poorly he or she speaks.

    “I don’t really see the point of your reasoning here.”

    My main reasoning was that it seems that nothing Obama says or does will please you.
    As for me, Bush did a lot I did not agree with, but he did do some things I did agree with. He increased funding to the NIH and National Science Foundation, he created the largest marine reserve with the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, and he gave Ray Bradbury (one of my favorite authors) the National Medal of the Arts. These are things just off the top of my head, and there are probably many more things he did that I agree with.
