OUR HISTORIC FLAGLESS PRESIDENT
MYSTERIOUS HISTORIC BEHAVIOR ALERTPresident Barack Obama's Press Conference on the Deep Water Horizon lacked a certain decorum specific to the staged background. The American Flags were missing. Plain yellow curtains, and a couple of gold columns with chandeliers were all she wrote.
Research of photos from press conferences of past presidents reveal the traditional flags standing sternly behind the President or off to the side. This was Obama's first formal press conference since July of 09, which of course had U.S. Flags present. Just sayin'...
As the gulf oil ecological disaster staggers on into Day 56, many clean-up workers complain of ill health. Obama is also finishing up his two-day tour of MS, AL, and FL, and compares the effects to 911 to the consternation of many.
His comments were condemned as 'ridiculous' and out of touch with reality by those who lost loved ones when terrorists flew passenger planes into New York's World Trade Centre in 2001.
"I think he's off-base,' said former New York Fire Department Chief Jim Riches, who lost a son. "These were terrorist attacks, these 9/11 murders, not something caused by people trying to make money."
