Why the double standard?

President Obama traveled to Ft. Hood today to attend a memorial service for those slain there last Thursday. I was struck by something he said during his prepared remarks:

But this much we do know – no faith justifies these murderous and craven acts; no just and loving God looks upon them with favor.

It appears the president is treating this horrendous act as a murder committed by a nut. He is quick to discount the strong possibility that terrorism is involved.

He was certainly quick to render judgment on the Cambridge, Massachusetts police department last summer:

…that the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home.

Why the double standard? Political correctness? Please, Mr. President, be consistent in your message.

    I’m not advocating violence just for the sake of violence. I DO think the military needs to take a hard look at those members of the military who are practicing Muslims. As I understand it — and I could be way off — some Muslims interpret the Koran as saying you cannot fight “with” those fighting “against” Muslims. If that is true, I don’t see the value of them continuing in the military.

    Just my $0.02…..

    I did not watch Lou Dobbs yesterday, but he is saying the same thing I am saying (only he’s much more eloquent than me).
