Letter to the Editor
Saturday, Sept. 28, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

President Obama had a speech planned for noon on Sept. 16. When the Washington Navy Yard mass shooting happened at around 8 that morning, he (incredibly) decided to give us that speech instead of postponing it.

After a brief reference to the shooting, which at the time seemed like a terrorist attack on a military installation, he then went on to give us a lecture about banks, Wall Street and the “1 percent” rich people, who he claimed were menacing us.

He claimed that only he could protect us from them and Congress should pass the legislation he wants and punish the “1 percent” with taxes.

Even CNN, usually in Obama's pocket, broke away from the speech and went back to the search for (at the time) two armed men roaming the streets of the capital.

Am I the only one who sees something very wrong here?
