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.
