Who was a Real President?

Who was a Real President?

Andrew Malcolm of the L.A.. Times's Top of the Ticket blog reports on the actions of a real president:

Last night former President George W. Bush and
his wife Laura made a secret visit to the devastated military families at Fort
Hood.

The Bushes instructed the commander of the
mourning military base that they wanted no publicity. With their Secret Service
detail, Bush and his wife made the 30 mile trip unannounced from their ranch
near Crawford, Texas Friday evening.

Fox News broke news of the visit this afternoon.
Other sources said the former first couple spent about two hours meeting with
family and soldiers, talking quietly and at times hugging them as they did in
private at other times of crisis such as post-9/11.

COMMENT: When President Obama went to Dover Air Force Base,
Delaware, earlier this week to be present for the return of war dead, he took
his photographer with him.

There is a difference. And it goes beyond style.

I could not have indurred the attacks. I know he had the moral convictions, and support of those around him, but the constant attacks had to be devistating when your just trying to do your best. Looks happy now.
The one thing that bothered me about Obamarama's visit was the photo op. Had he have gone with out them i would have given him credit, and even been ok with the salute. Wonder who did teach him?

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

Cool, So the shooter is in Tenn. I'm surprised they think he is safe there. Sure as hell wasn't safe in TX.

They hardly ever get anything right.

here is the thing

Cone said the gunman used two handguns. He said that military officials believed that there was a single shooter.

Two other soldiers were taken into custody after the shooting, but Rep. John Carter, R-Texas, said they were released.

A senior administration official told NBC News that the shootings could have been a criminal matter rather than a terrorism-related attack and that there was no intelligence to suggest a plot against Fort Hood.
