  • A Obama mistake

    Yesterday when President Obama spoke about the Fort Hood killings, he spoke to another group, prior to his statements about Fort Hood. He acknowledged Chief Joe Medicine Crow as being a Medal of honor recipient, He was not a Medal of Honor recipient, we was given the Presdential Medal Of Freedom.

    You can google Chief Medicine Crow and see that the President made a mistake.

    Someone in the White House needs to get their facts straight before allowing the President to make nationwide speech.

    Come on Obama make a mistake? Next thing you are going to say is that he won the presidency with no experience and did not deserve the nobel peace prize.

        Hey, but everyone in the audience felt better after he made the speech.

        Now, if Obama's predecessor had done the same thing, we'd see SNL skits and other media diatribes about his stupidity and insensitivity.

            Wouldn't it be "An Obama mistake"?

            And who really cares. Now that you brought it to our attention, yes it does peeve me, but what got me more is his actual words he used in his "speech/response".

              Did anyone think the whole "shout out" thing, besides the medal of honor error, was a little unnecessary considering the circumstances? The press release should have been focused on the Fort Hood tragedy, and that tragedy only.

              For like the first two and a half minutes of a six minute speech Obama was talking to the Dept of Interior. As if he didn't notice the huge 800 lb gorilla (Fort Hood shooting) sitting in the middle of the room.

              I also find it funny that every subsequent statement coming from the Whitehouse has advised us to not come to judgments, regarding whether this was an attack on US soldiers from a Muslim militant.

              Why is Obama so concerned about whether or not we as US citizens view this as a militant Muslim attack? For some reason they want all of us to think that this attack was done by a crazy f%%ker with a PTSD problem. Or some dude attempting to get out of deployment.

                If he or anyone is going to honor a Medal Of Honor reciepient he better be damn sure of his facts that the person is in fact a reciepientof this nations highest award.

                  I would hope that being someone of such a high stature he does his own research on someone before doing a speech on them

                    Although I don't like BHO, I must disagree. The POTUS speaks and works on many issues and has to be brought up to speed by his hand-picked and trusted staff. We've already seen/heard what Obama does when he has no teleprompter.

                    As I said, however, whereas GWB was always held personally responsible, BHO is not.

                        It should be noted that Obama himself awarded the Chief the Presdential Medal of Freedom in August. Guess he has a short memory....

                          I listened to the address. Additionally, fully aware that soldiers had been shot, at Ft. Hood, BHO makes his 'shout outs' to conference attendees and talks about healthcare, etc. for a couple of minutes. Then he talks about the shooting.

                          Remember how Michael Moore did his best to make GWB look/sound like an idiot when he continued to read to the kindergartners for 2-1/2 minutes after becoming aware of the Twin Towers attack. GWB then excused himself and went to work. I would ask why a double standard exists, but know better than to ask.

                            I'd like to think that GWB continued to read to those kids because he didn't want to frighten them or make them worry by jumping up and leaving in a panic...plus when he was first notified there wasn't a whole bunch of known information at that time and he couldn't do anything until he and his staff learned more BHO had all the information he needed to make a statement but declined to do so right away.

                              It may have been mentioned here already and I missed it but another thing that really bothered me was Obama calling for everyone to wait until all the facts are in and not jumping to conclusions (muslim attacks military) but he jumped right into the fray with his "stupidly" remark about Sgt Crowley. It seems okay to immediately jump to conclusions about some things but obviously not others.
