President Not Sure About…Much of Anything Lately

with 2 comments

Rasmussen reported Wednesday:

Sixty percent (60%) of likely voters nationwide say last week’s shootings at Fort Hood should be investigated by military authorities as a terrorist act.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 27% want the incident investigated by civilian authorities as a criminal act. Another 13% are not sure.

Those following the story Very Closely are even more likely to want the shooting investigated as an act of terrorism.

Sixty-five percent (65%) of all voters say Major Nidal Malik Hasan should receive the death penalty if convicted. Nineteen percent (19%) disagree, and 16% aren’t sure.

President Not Sure

Idiocracy's President Not Sure

Still occupied with being not sure whether to send support to our troops in Afghanistan, Obama responded to the Fort Hood tragedy by joining ranks with the “not sure” camp—going one better, in fact, by asking Congress to put off its investigationThe AP reports:

Lawmakers, however, already have announced they want their own investigations and were frustrated with what they view as a less-than-forthcoming administration.

. . . .

Obama said he was not opposed to hearings — eventually. But he strongly pressed lawmakers to hold off until the probes now under way are completed.

“There is an ongoing investigation into this terrible tragedy,” Obama said. “That investigation will look at the motives of the alleged gunman, including his views and contacts.”

“We must compile every piece of information that was known about the gunman, and we must learn what was done with that information. Once we have those facts, we must act upon them.”

  1. Barney Fife had a bullet and was ready to use it! President needs to know who Hasan knew? So what? The people of America are tired of this endless “I’m ok you’re ok” to anything and anybody. Treason, murder, traitor don’t need a whole lot of deliberation. Don’t condone the lynch mob. Just set up a guillotine outside the building of House of Representatives to dispose of problems like Hasan. TWe can put a smiley face on the blade, and “have a nice day” on the frame.
