Since when does one person warrants the presidents full attention. That is why We have a CIA, NSA, DOD, and all those good acronyms.

Tell that to Limbaugh.

What exactly do you want him to say? There's a Navy destroyer at the scene, so I believe the situation is in as much control as it can be.

Since these situations usually resolve themselves without bloodshed, it seems to me that focusing on the life of a single individual (the captain) needs a bit less attention from Obama than the issue that involves millions (the economy). Wouldn't you agree?

He could have expressed concern for the man being held, and for the other men who were hostages. He could have expressed concern that this international problem now has it home. He could have said his secretary of state is monitoring the situation (as laughable as she seems to find it). He could have said the Navy has a destroyer on the scene and the situation is in as much control as possible right now.

I'm just a lowly PR person, and I thought of four sentences that would have responded appropriately to the reporter's question quickly and easily. Why couldn't he?

Sometimes, just a word from our leader means a lot, even if we "already know" the stuff. Why the hell can't/won't he comment, at least just to say we're concerned ... is he concerned, because we wouldn't know if he doesn't say so, and his secretary of state is laughing it up.

I am sure he is afraid of the pirates. That must be it. It's the only logical explanation.

It's an ongoing hostage situation, why the hell would he just go off and make an off the cuff remark about it.

Oh yeah, so you could tell us he was not sincere enough, or SouthCak could tell us he didn't use enough balls while saying it, or G5....well...G5 could put up a pretty picture or something, I'm sure.

Google images...can't claim credit.

But I do have Adobe Photoshop CF3 if you need some work done. Not a lot I can do with improving your face from your avatar...there's a tube coming out of it.

Since the Obama haters have nothing else of substance to base a true criticism on, this is what they're left with....

I am amazed at The Barry's obvious lack of ability to think on the fly or to perform two tasks at once. When asked about the pirates, he responds "Come on guys, were talking about housing here." The Barry really depends on what is written for him. Maybe he should switch to the Closed Caption technology so his puppet masters can edit teleprompter content on the fly.

LMAO at those who defend this guy. He is an idiot who dislikes the country he is leading (I use the term leading very loosely).

Actually, you make a good point. When Obama speaks, people listen. Just look at North Korea with their "test rocket" after The Barry threatened to take action if fired. So if The Barry were to tell the Pirates to back down, they'd probably LOLz all the way to murdering the captain.
