MSNBC’s Joy Reid Praises Obama’s
Reaction To Terror, Says Bush Dis-
appeared for ‘Couple Weeks’ After 9/11

Mediaite, by Noah Rothman

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 4/16/2013 3:38:34 PM

MSNBC contributor Joy-Ann Reid told the host of Now, Alex Wagner, that she thought President Barack Obama’s response to the attack on the Boston Marathon on Monday was powerful and comforting in a way that President George W. Bush’s response to the attacks of September 11, 2001, was not. She accused Bush of being unavailable to the American people for the “first couple weeks” after the attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Reid told Wagner that the president’s statement actively combatted the intention of the terrorists, which is to make their targets feel “discombobulated.” “Having, sort of

Comments:
I thought no one could forget Bush standing in amidst the destruction in NY with the megaphone. I guess liberals live in their own little private world.

Does MSNBC remove the brains of all staff?

Or do they only hire staff that do not have brains to start with?

I just can´t figure it out. It could go either way...

It´s always about "the narrative" and political advantage with these people.

Any resemblance to reality or the truth would be accidental. Their disengagement from either constitutes some kind of derangement.

President Bush´s speech to the joint houses of congress was the finest presidential speech ever given.

Even the left acknowledged that fact.

Following that speech the creatures assembled on the Capitol steps to sing God Bless America.

But in the world of MESSYNBSEEE that never happened.

Nor did the President´s speech on the fire truck in NYC.

Nor did the President throw out the first pitch at the Yankee game.

Even Rosie O´Donuts had to praise that moment.

Again, must have all been a figment of my imagination.

The moronic comparison of two bombs in a small area to four airplanes, three of which crash into buildings killing over 3000 Americans where noone knew if the complete country was under attack continues to prove that if MSNBC personnel had a brain cell among them, it would be lonesome. MSNBC from its executives to its production people to its on-air personnel is a loathsome organization.

As always with NBC, the opposite is the truth. 3 days after not 2 weeks, "I can hear you, The rest of the world hears, and the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon."
Now what did Obama say? "don´t jump to conclusions."

Does this idiot forget that not only did planes crash into the twin towers but also into the Pentagon and one was on its way to Washington and maybe the WH. I wonder how The Won would have handled that! Pres. Bush wanted to head right back to DC but the Secret Service would not allow it. Does anyone else notice that Obama reads everything and does not look straight at the camera at any time.

And to add to President Bush´s appearances after 9/11, he spoke to the nation from the National Cathedral. Unfortunately, he said Islam was a religion of peace.

It is amazing that this woman thinks the two bombs in Boston are comparable to 9/11. It sounds like she is both stupid and dumb.

To say President Bush was in unavailable to the American people for two weeks is an absolute lie. And to think President Obama saying anything about the Boston bombs calms the people down is ridiculous.

This was not an event that people will remember where they were when they first heard about it.

She does not know what she is talking about! G.W. Bush was right up front after 9/11 that was a massive attack compared to the bomb attack yesterday in Boston. By saying that I certainly do not mean to trivialize the people who were killed or who received horrific injuries. The one big difference was that Bush was traveling in the South at the time of the 9/11 attack and yesterday Obama was sitting at his desk in the White House.

Obama should be up front on the situation in Boston, as the office of the president has had over 10 years now after the 9/11 attack, to get ready for the style of TV appearances that the president would have to make following new attacks inside the USA.

MOSCOW — With a referendum on secession looming in Crimea, Russia massed troops and armored vehicles in at least three regions along Ukraine’s eastern border on Thursday, alarming the interim Ukraine government about a possible invasion and significantly escalating tensions in the crisis between the Kremlin and the West. The announcement of the troop buildup by Russia’s Defense Ministry was met with an unusually sharp rebuke from Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany, who warned that the Russian government must abandon what she called the politics of the 19th and 20th centuries or face diplomatic and economic retaliation from a

Republicans won a nice victory in the Florida special congressional election yesterday, which the more gullible and/or excitable pundits are already overhyping. But via e-mail today, I received a reminder that Democrats should be rooting for an audience of two to be similarly over-interpreting the results: Supreme Court Justices Stephen Breyer and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. If the justices previously believed it a safe bet that they would be replaced by mainstream liberal justices when they retire, perhaps now they´ll realize their only reasonable course of action is to retire this spring, pending confirmed replacements.

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — More than four days after a Malaysian jetliner went missing en route to Beijing, authorities acknowledged Wednesday they didn´t know which direction the plane carrying 239 passengers was heading when it disappeared, vastly complicating efforts to find it. Amid intensifying confusion and occasionally contradictory statements, the country´s civil aviation authorities and the military both said the plane may have turned back from its last known position between Malaysian and Vietnam, possibly as far as the Strait of Malacca, a busy shipping lane on the western side of Malaysia.

A man whose $50,000 coin collection was first stolen, then hocked, cannot recover it from Las Vegas´ famous "Pawn Stars" pawn shop. Reason: The hock shop claims it melted the coins down. According to a criminal complaint filed by the State of Nevada in Clark County Justice Court, a coin collection valued by its owner, David Walters, at up to $50,000, was stolen from Walters´ Las Vegas home in November 2013 by Walters´ niece, Jennifer Beckman.

General Motors Co.´s (GM) recall of 1.6 million vehicles could prove to be one of the most costly in automotive history. The company not only faces fines. The legal liability triggered by what could be thousands of personal injury lawsuits may be just as damaging to the reputation of GM´s important brands, which almost certainly will erode sales. At the heart of the injury to GM is the accusation that some of its employees knew about an ignition switch fault as early as 2004.

SAN FRANCISCO - California´s greenhouse gas reduction law already has shaken up the state´s industrial sector, costing it more than $1.5 billion in pollution permit fees. It´s now poised to hit the pocketbooks of everyday Californians. Starting next year, the law will force fuel distributors into the same cap-and-trade marketplace as utilities and major manufacturers. The oil industry says it will lead to price increases of at least 12 cents a gallon immediately, while state regulators say any price spikes could vary widely, from barely noticeable to double-digits.

Fertility is the missing chapter in sex education. Sobering facts about women’s declining fertility after their 20s are being withheld from ambitious young women, who are propelled along a career track devised for men. The refusal by public schools’ sex-education programs to acknowledge gender differences is betraying both boys and girls. The genders should be separated for sex counseling. It is absurd to avoid the harsh reality that boys have less to lose from casual serial sex than do girls, who risk pregnancy and whose future fertility can be compromised by disease. Boys need lessons in basic ethics and moral reasoning

The vote was 233-181 in the Republican-led House as GOP lawmakers excoriated Obama for multiple changes to his 4-year-old health care law, steps he’s taken to allow young immigrants to remain in the United States and the administration’s resistance to defend the federal law banning gay marriage. Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., sponsor of the ENFORCE the Law Act, delivered a fiery speech and read a series of statements by Obama when he was an Illinois senator in which he warned of the encroachment of the executive on the powers of the other branches of government. “How does going from being

U.S. investigators suspect that Malaysia Airlines 3786.KU -4.08% Flight 370 stayed in the air for about four hours past the time it reached its last confirmed location, according to two people familiar with the details, raising the possibility that the plane could have flown on for hundreds of additional miles under conditions that remain murky. Aviation investigators and national security officials believe the plane flew for a total of five hours, based on data automatically downloaded and sent to the ground from the Boeing Co. BA -0.99% 777´s engines as part of a routine maintenance and monitoring program. That raises

US officials believe that two communications systems aboard Malaysian Airlines flight 370 were shut down separately, 14 minutes apart - which indicates the plane did not come down because of a sudden catastrophic failure. The data reporting system was shut down at 1.07 am and the transponder was turned off at 1.21 am just after the the pilot signed off to Malaysian air traffic controllers with ´All right, good night,´ and before the Boeing 777 apparently changed course and turned west. According to investigators this indicated that the switch-off could have been a deliberate act and officials told ABC News that the

President Barack Obama lamented on Friday that he´s been unfairly criticized for wearing loose jeans. “I’ve been unfairly maligned about my jeans,” he joked in a radio interview with Ryan Seacrest. “The truth is, generally I look very sharp in jeans." One fashion faux pas at the 2009 MLB All-Star baseball game was a costly learning experience, he added. "There was one episode like four years ago in which I was wearing some loose jeans mainly because I was out on the pitcher’s mound and I didn’t want to feel confined while I was pitching and I think I’ve paid

Will Darrell Issa say he’s sorry? House Democrats again targeted the controversial Issa on Thursday, with a bid to force the California Republican to publicly apologize for what they dub his “repeated history of abuse” toward the minority party. Democratic Rep. Dan Kildee (Mich.)’s resolution condemns Issa for repeated clashes with Democrats – exchanges Kildee said don’t live up to the responsibility of a committee chairman. Issa wields the gavel at the powerful House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which is probing the Internal Revenue Service controversy and Benghazi, among other hot issues. “[I]t seems that Chairman Issa is more

Scientists who don´t believe in catastrophic man-made global warming should be put in prison, a US philosophy professor argues on a website funded by the UK government. Lawrence Torcello - assistant professor of philosophy at Rochester Institute of Technology, NY, writes in an essay at The Conversation that climate scientists who fail to communicate the correct message about "global warming" should face trial for "criminal negligence". (H/T Bishop Hill) The Conversation - no relation of Breitbart´s blogging chatroom - is a website promoting articles by academics and funded by nineteen of Britain´s leading universities, as well as several government agencies, including the

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid renewed his crusade against the Koch brothers Thursday, and demanded that Republicans disavow the two men who have spent tens of millions of dollars to back conservative causes. “Is even one of you — is even one of you — willing to stand up and disavow the Koch brothers’ agenda?” Mr. Reid demanded on the Senate floor as he opened Thursday’s session. It’s the latest installment in what’s becoming a frequent attack by Mr. Reid on David and Charles Koch, two of the wealthiest men in America. Mr. Reid led off his weekly press availability

President Barack Obama hit back at critics calling him out for his "mom jeans. "I´ve been unfairly maligned about my jeans," Obama said Friday in an interview with radio host Ryan Seacrest. "The truth is, generally I look very sharp in jeans. There was one episode like four years ago in which I was wearing some loose jeans, mainly because I was out on the pitcher´s mound and I didn´t want to feel confined while I was pitching, and I think I´ve paid my penance for that. I got whacked pretty good. Since that time, my jeans fit very well."

In case you hadn’t heard, young people these days — a.k.a “the Millennials” — are the most cynical and distrusting generation ever recorded. Only 19 percent think most people can be trusted. According to a big study from the Pew Research Center, they are less attached to marriage, religion, and political institutions than Gen Xers, Baby Boomers, and the other demographic flavors journalists love to use. They like their friends, their digital “social networks,” and their toys, and that’s about it. Not even a majority will call themselves “patriotic.” Probably more dismaying for liberals: Of any living generation, they are
