Obama's Cowardly Fort Hood Speech

Today the President did his job, and I say that in a non-complimentary fashion. He spoke before a nation that was still in mourning over the first terrorist attack on American soil since 9/11, but he did so in a cowardly manner.

At no point during his speech did he mutter any words that describe the enemy we continue to face. He spoke vaguely of "twisted logic" and "extremists", but failed to point the finger directly at Islam. If we didn't know any better, we wouldn't have a clue who or what he was talking about.

However, with all that being said, I'm once again not surprised that Obama willingly chose to miss the boat. First, our aloof commander-in-chief felt the need to send a shout-out to Chief Joe Medicine Crow before he spoke of the 14 dead and 30 wounded at Fort Hood (yes I'm counting the fetus in Francheska Velez's womb), then during the weekend following this horrific incident, he retreated to Camp David while his predecessor quietly went and paid his respects.

If we have any more terrorists disguised in U.S. military fatigues like Nadal Malik Hasan, they have nothing to worry about. Obama will continue to sleep comfortably at night in his Bubble House and his repeated actions of willful ignorance will allow them to conclude he's just asleep at the switch.

Feel any safer yet?

No, I don't either.
