Over the last few months, Barack Obama's apathetic, anti-American attitude has been put on display with alarming frequency.

The president's insensitivity to the plight of fellow Americans has become very evident in his words and actions. When a white police sergeant arrested one of Obama's close friends back in July, Obama reacted by calling the officer "stupid" on national television.

While American soldiers die daily in a war that no one wants in Afghanistan, Obama plays golf. In fact, Obama has booked more tee times on golf courses than any other president in recent history.

Last week, during the elections -- a time when other presidents would be glued to their TVs watching the returns -- Obama was watching a NBA game.

In the hours following the tragic shootings on a Texas military base that claimed the lives of 13 soldiers, the White House sent word that the president would speak about the incident before a scheduled speech at a Tribal Nations Conference that afternoon.

But when the networks went live to Obama at 5 pm, he seemed totally disconnected and oblivious to the pain the nation was in.

Empathy, compassion and condolences to the families of the fallen and the wounded soldiers rightfully should have been the first words of out of Obama's mouth. Instead, he made light banter and behaved like he was still on the campaign trail.

Obama began by thanking various staff members (expressions of gratitude that could have waited), and he even waved and smiled as he gave a "shout out" to a professor. Come on, a shout out?

In fact, Obama didn't mention the dead and wounded soldiers until 3 minutes into his little speech (part of the speech is cut off in the video).

Taking 3 minutes to make small talk before expressing sympathy for dead soldiers and their families is shockingly callous. It's also interesting that Obama (a closeted muslim) was quick to ask the nation not to jump to conclusions because the shooter is muslim and shouted "Allahu Akbar" before opening fire on military personnel.

Thank you Kool Aid drinkers for voting the first anti-American president into office.

    SR U HAVE SUCH A WAY WITH WORDS. I WILL KEEP MY OPINION ABOUT THIS HOPLA BEING USED AS PROPAGANDA TO MYSELF. DON'T TAKE IT AS INSENSITIVITY BUT FOLKS WILL TRY TO USE THE TRAGEDY TO THEIR BENEFIT/ADVANTAGE.

    but when he is present to see the boys come home in caskets, you call it a "photo op"....

    Sandra, won't you also add that he & the first lady will be at the memorial for the victims of this tragedy?

    I'm w/ free - he can't win for losing with you, Sandra.

    And no, the entire country should not jump to conclusions about ALL Muslims in this country and assume they are all violent people bent on suicide. I know the Muslim community here in North Texas has publicly denounced what the shooter did.

    And Obama will be at Ft. Hood tomorrow to address the survivors and people there. So, get your "photo op" caption ready, Sandra. :rolleyes:

    The media called that a photo op because all but one soldier's did NOT want the camera there. Rather than go with the majority, Obama made sure that his picture was taken with that one casket. I think while Obama was hurt and saddened by the events, that was an ill-advised photo op.

    With Michele at his side, he'll handle tomorrow's memorial service much better.
