Governor Palin sent out condolences to the family and friends of the Marines who died today in the tragic accident at Nevada’s Hawthorne Army Depot.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of the Marines who lost their lives today.
Meanwhile, the country’s commander in chief was busy tweeting pictures of “snack time.”
From The Washington Times:
President Obama is still so fixated on fundraising and divisive campaign tactics that major tragedies and world crises get ignored.
At 10:40 a.m. Tuesday, the @BarackObama Twitter feed posted a tweet that said “Snack time” along with a photo of two small children picking up apples from a bowl in the Oval Office…
The president is seen chatting in the background.
The feed is managed by Organizing for Action, which took over high-dollar fundraising after Obama for America won its final election. It’s run by Mr. Obama’s former campaign guru Jim Messina.
An hour earlier, @BarackObama posted an attack on a supposed congressional Republican effort to cut education spending. It asked people to retweet if they agreed with the point, but gave no explanation for what “severe cuts” were up for debate.
While the president is tweeting about apples and political fights, the families of seven Marines tragically killed Monday in a training exercise are mourning their loss…
The @WhiteHouse Twitter account has not been updated at all since Monday evening, nor has Press Secretary Jay Carney’s account.
Mr. Obama needs to stop running political campaigns and start acting like the commander in chief and leader of the free world. And let kids visiting the Oval Office eat the M&Ms.
