A study in contrast:
A Muslim soldier had just opened fire on a US military base, killing 13 and wounding 32 others. When President Obama gets up to give his remarks on the incident, he spends the first couple of minutes giving a “shout out” and making other remarks about the event he had been attending before addressing the issue at hand in mild tones, offering condolences and promising that authorities would investigate & get to the bottom of the incident. Homeland Security Director Janet Napolitano, in the Middle East at the time, expressed concerns about a violent backlash against innocent Muslims.
Muslim suicide bombers blow themselves up on Moscow metro trains, killing 39. Russian Prime Minister Putin states “I am confident that law enforcement bodies will spare no effort to track down and punish the criminals. Terrorists will be destroyed,” and later says “We know they are lying low, but it is already a matter of pride for the law enforcement agencies to drag them out of the sewer and into broad daylight.”
Now, I know for a fact that I wouldn’t want to live in a nation where the head honcho is a former KGB thug…but when America comes under terrorist attack, I would much rather hear what Vladimir Putin said coming from my president, rather than politically correct nonsense.
