Maybe some of us are being too picky about the different ways that President Obama responded to two tragic events during the last week. You can decide for yourself.
Hat tip to Michelle for getting me to write about this one. Maybe some pundits will spend too much time reading into his statement, you know, being deeply saddened about the recruiter attack and shocked and outraged about the murder of Dr. Tiller.
Add that to the fact that his statement concerning Tiller was released almost immediately and it took three days to release the second statement, I guess you can complain about it.
But do not let this stuff take you off message. If you spend too much time on this stuff, what are you missing?
The White House finally got around to releasing a statement on the jihadi attack against our troops at the Arkansas military recruitment center.
Here is the entire statement:
“I am deeply saddened by this senseless act of violence against two brave young soldiers who were doing their part to strengthen our armed forces and keep our country safe. I would like to wish Quinton Ezeagwula a speedy recovery, and to offer my condolences and prayers to William Long’s family as they mourn the loss of their son.”
“Senseless?” It made perfectly good sense to a vengeful Muslim convert jihadi bent on “killing as many people in the Army as he could.”
For contrast, here is Obama’s full statement on the Tiller murder, issued just hours after the shooting:
I am shocked and outraged by the murder of Dr. George Tiller as he attended church services this morning. However profound our differences as Americans over difficult issues such as abortion, they cannot be resolved by heinous acts of violence.
To get you just a bit worked up, Malkin goes on…
