Re: NBC News Affiliate Turns On Obama.......
This president has a history of saying jack-ass things in an attempt to be disarming, casual, relaxed, and funny.
I don't believe that it really means that he doesn't care he just needs to be more measured in his responses.
It's interesting however, us Americans, the ones that didn't lose a loved one, went right back to our day to day activities after this terrible news. Of course we were all saddened but we still have things that we need/ choose to do. Why do we have a different standard for the president? I guess the president should be our national face of mourning.
And of course Bush also seemed a bit casual after over 3000 Americans died in the largest terrorist attack in history. Once again, I don't really blame him but I think it might have been wise to show a lot more concern at that exact moment.
I was at the Motocross track a couple of weeks ago and two older friends of mine asked me to be the judge in their all out 'grudge' race on the track. As I watched these two grown men putt around the track while small children and women passed them w/ ease I couldn't help but laugh. When they came in and asked me who won I said "congrats Dale, you won the special Olympics of Motocross and you roosted that 11 year old girl that was lapping you in the process" and we all laughed. It reminded me how we hold these politicains to much higher standards and it simply is not exceptable or funny for them to make a joke like that. Aren't they human as well?
