combating liberalism and other childish notions


Posted by Andrew Roman on November 7, 2009

The President of the United States is calling on Americans to refrain from drawing quick conclusions in the aftermath of the shooting spree that saw 13 innocents murdered at Fort Hood, Texas on Thursday. He is asking that citizens not use their God-given common sense to formulate any sort of opinions on the horrific event that saw an officer of the United States Army shout “Allahu Akbar!” (God Is Great) just before opening fire. He is hoping that Americans can back off, take a deep breath and ignore all the news reports, videotapes and eyewitness accounts that suggest – putting it mildly – that the killer is an Islamic radical.

Sure, I’m willing to entertain the possibility that Nidal Malik Hasan was simply a jilted boyfriend, or angry about the Phillies losing the World Series, or furious that his DVR failed to record Thursday’s episode of “The Office,” but there just isn’t a whole of evidence pointing in those directions.

From the Financial Times in London:

The president made the comments as the commander of Fort Hood, the US’s largest base for deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, quoted witnesses as saying the suspected gunman, Major Nidal Malik Hasan, shouted the Muslim declaration “Allahu Akbar” – God is great – as he opened fire. Speaking at the White House, Mr Obama said: “We don’t know all the answers yet, and I would caution against jumping to conclusions until we have all the facts.”

Is the President honestly asking the American people to refrain from “jumping to conclusions until we have all the facts”?


I’m falling off the davenport trying to control my laughter.

This is the same man who, at a press conference, condemned a Massachusetts police department for its “stupid” handling of the arrest of Professor Henry Louis Gates without knowing any of the facts.

This is the same man who, without a single fact or stitch of evidence to back it up, declared the “global warming” debate a settled issue – and is fully prepared to inflict serious damage to the American economy in defending that “conclusion” with crippling greenhouse gas emissions legislation.

This is also the man who promised that every bill that made its way through Congress would be available for review by the public for five days.

I could go on.

    Don’t jump to conclusions?? Do the words, “I don’t have all the facts, but the police acted stupidly” have any meaning at all for this guy?

    I hope that President Obama devotes more energy to convincing Congress to provide vital money to purchase the body armor our soldiers need to survive
