It’s crazy, because Obama usually never politicizes any sort of tragedy. He’s always focused and circumspect. Maybe this was just a bad day for our beloved President.

Totally inappropriate tone for this guy to take. Cheery pep-rally deal, replete with numerous sports references. Almost like he’s making light of the events in Boston.

Private plane crash.

from Wiki

“Other pilots at the charter company told NTSB that pilot Richard Conry and first officer (co-pilot) Michael Guess both displayed below average flying skills. “

Hi Lazmataz......It surely was a Pep Rally...and one place he knew he's get applause. I didn't hear much at all about the victims....the focus was entirely about maintaining the adulation that was given him there.

I had exactly the same reaction...all the standing around yukking it up like at Wellstone...only Romney to his credit showed some dignity and somberness

Why pray tell do we as a nation and our media have to make every crisis about everything

My tears welled up listening about the dead child and the dead young woman...as a parent of many..it's hard to hear that

But while I feel so much empathy I do not need to be a part of it.

We do this now with evertyhting..

I know we did not do this with every WWII setback or horror or after Korea or Vietnam or national tragedies back then

I recall Vietnam horrors...Hamburger Hill or Hue or the A Shau..we didn't have memorial services on TV for pols and interfaith religious services broadcast by Walter or Chet or David or Roger or Eric

or after Hurricane Camille which i was in...there was none of that nationwide...no Bruce Springsteen running to make a splash

this sort of stuff about memorializing for closure every tragedy is a sign of a weak culture

bent on accommodation and instant relief rather than a sound course of victory

it's insidious

That’s exactly the way....

Obama didn’t “share” their pain.....(It was after all a Memorial Service for the victims)....he completely side-stepped that fact and ushered in a Pep-Rally complete with the audiance rising to their feet in celebration.

The Piper played..and they danced.

That’s a common misconception. It wasn’t done at Wellstone’s funeral. It WAS done at a public memorial service, but of course that doesn’t excuse the behavior. It was just liberals being their usual classless, boorish selves.

I will say this: I was no fan of Jesse Ventura as our governor, but he did one thing right during his term. During that ridiculous pep rally that night, he got up and walked off the stage.

“Corpse man blah blah blah blah,

“Let us blah blah blah blah blah blah

“Reach across the aisle blah blah blah blah blah blah “

Perhaps it’s because of Sequestration, but at this democrat rally, Obama failed to hand out or sell T-shirts.

Insightful post.

The ribbons, bunnies and balloons are trite, superficial offerings.

Private, silent prayer in somber reflection would be far more appropriate - but this is the age of exhibitionism and excess - regardless of the occasion.

And the leading from behind continues.

Sen. Wellstone was a Liberal Democrat, but by all accounts, a decent human being who deserved far more dignity and decorum at his memorial.

Believe it or not, I knew Paul Wellstone. I agreed with him on exactly nothing in a political sense but you are right to state that he was a good man (except in his first election campaign against Rudy Boschwitz).

He’d never get my vote but that didn’t stop him from being nice on a personal basis. You’re quite right — he and his wife, who was also memorialized that night, deserved some dignified treatment.

Wellstone was a senator and Vice President Cheney was President of the Senate, but he was warned it was not safe for him to attend the rally for Wellstone.
