Absolutely, Yanks. He should have cancelled the American Indian event. ¿After all, 80 percent unemployment among indigenous Americans is our own #### fault, isn't it?


If we'd had the common decency to die when the US govt was committing genocide, there wouldn't be an Indian problem to begin with. :eyesroll:


I'm sure we could wait another 200 years for attention.  Maybe we'll be good enough to roll over and die in the meantime so the American president won't be distracted from *real* Americans by dealing with us.  :eyesroll:


May I remind you that President Bush was playing air guitar while New Orleans drowned?

Correction, he's Your president, not mine.

A president Disconnected? If he's disconnected, what the hell was wrong with Bush? He was so disconnected he was in fluidic space ffs. How long did it take him to suddenly wake up that there might be a problem with Katrina? Or how about the long list of other things that occured.

From your report:

..... But instead of a somber chief executive offering reassuring words and expressions of sympathy and compassion, viewers saw a wildly disconnected and inappropriately light president making introductory remarks. At the event, a Tribal Nations Conference hosted by the Department of Interior's Bureau of Indian affairs, the president thanked various staffers and offered a "shout-out" to "Dr. Joe Medicine Crow -- that Congressional Medal of Honor winner." ?Three minutes in, the president spoke about the shooting, in measured and appropriate terms. Who is advising him?"

Clearly the writer doesn't know much, let alone respect the natives of the nation or why he was there in the first place.... he gave props to a native who got a CMH, and then by the writers own words "the president spoke about the shooting, in measured and appropriate terms"

Measured and Appropriate Terms.... WTF else was he expecting? His response was "Measured" and "Appropriate"..... yet that isn't good enough for him?

Was he expecting Obama to start crying on camera and blubbering over this?

Here's what I read elsewhere:

Speaking in Washington, President Barack Obama called the shootings a "horrific outburst."

"It's difficult enough when we lose these great Americans in battles overseas," Obama said at the Interior Department. "It's horrifying that they should come under fire at an Army base on American soil."


What the hell more does anybody want?

I know, how about Obama raises his hand and resurrects all the dead?

Man, it seems anybody in the US will jump at anything to complain about. :eyesroll:

Time to impeach Obama I guess, cripes.

The party of personal responsibility is the biggest bunch of whiners when they don't get what they want when they want.

Ah yes, my apologies for generalizing.

I've debated for years on a mostly-US based forum that dealt with Politics and News..... sometimes I just had to shake my head.

I personally have no major favors towards the Democrats or the Republicans in the US, although I hate the Republicans more, mainly due to a number of moronic situations over the years at the hands of that party.

And here in Canada, we have similar parties, the Conservatives and Liberals.... which I hate both with a passion, but the Cons get it worse from me because they're totally incompetent.

But both are are mere Good Cop Bad Cop parties who rub each others backs to ensure they both get to have power from time to time, but put on a big wrestling match show on TV for all to see as if they're any different from one another.

Myself, officially I vote for the NDP, just because I'm so sick and #### tired of the same flip flopping government routine of the same two joker clown parties continually staying in power.

This is typically how it goes for both Canada and the US:

Let's say the Liberals/Democrats get into power. They get into power usually because the Conservatives/Republicans screwed something royally up for far too long.

Then people get all ticked off and vote for the other party. So then the Republicans/Conservatives get into power, like the other parties, they never keep most of their promises, they rarely ever fix the problems that brought them into power in the first place, they screw up even more things, people get PO'd over them and then vote the other parties back into power as if they have memories of gold fish.

Set the oven on 425f and repeat for decades on end and you got yourself the typical looping pattern that our countries have been stuck in pretty much since our countries were created.

Kinda sickening when you think about it....... sure everybody preaches on about how "Free" we are and how we get to choose our leaders.

No we don't.... we have imaginary freedoms, given choices over things that really don't matter in the long run and yet we think we're making a difference.

Our leaders for the most part are chosen for us and we are given two or three people shoved in our face to choose from, when they're all pretty much the same and end up doing the exact same things their parties tell them to do. Then when they're in power, it's as though they no longer have to listen to the people who voted them into power in the first place, and everytime people get ticked about what they're doing, it's turned around and "Well, you voted him into power, so you much agree with all of his/her decisions." even if they're decisions you never even heard of, let alone agreed with...... our leaders run the countries like they have blank cheques and don't have to worry about anything until the next election.

And when you only have two major parties to choose from all the time, that's not democracy because you don't have a choice.... esspecially when the two choices you have act and do the exact same things as the other no matter what, ie: good cop, bad cop. When you don't have a third option, you leave room for total corruption between the two existing parties.

end rant.

It's OK  for some one to call the President a liar in an open session of congress YET when the President following an staff advisor(which is the way speeches have been given by presidents since the early 1900's) is supposed to apologize?

Mind you it may not have been in good taste yet this clearly was a mistake on behalf of a staff member.

Yup, that's what the article says. Of course Bush's staff wrote his speeches and they were fair game... hmmm

I agree, this was a staff blunder. But when he finally got around to it, he said the right things.

I'm sure Obama was like WTF??? He probably had a meeting later on about that speech.

I find that article deeply distasteful and a perfect example of what's wrong with the Republican party.   The President had to greet the guests at this meeting, it wasn't a situation where he was addressing the American people directly.  He got to the subject as soon as it was appropriate and then he said the right things.   Some of you hate him SO much, and apparently moronicly fear him, that whatever he does, right or wrong, will be ammo for attack.  Thus, I don't listen to the BS propaganda anymore.  Rant on, but it's sad and disgraceful. :angry:
