Via Dan Riehl, two items for a compare and contrast exercise:
- In the wake of the massacre of US soldiers and civilians at Ft. Hood by a Muslim traitor bent on jihad, former President George W. Bush and his wife Laura visited the wounded survivors and thanked the hospital staff.
- In the wake of the massacre of US soldiers and civilians at Ft. Hood by a Muslim traitor bent on jihad, President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle flew off for a weekend at Camp David.
You may draw your own conclusions.
After Hurricane Katrina, President Bush was hammered in the media for supposed insensitivity and callousness toward the storm’s victims. Will President Obama face the same criticism now, after the worst terrorist attack on US soil since 9-11?
No need to answer that question.
