This is good news for Obama, at any rate. People have been talking about the colossal failure of everything associated with his "health care" program and now the talking heads will be distracted. His Excellency can posture and hold some political theater about the evil of guns and gun owners. They are probably popping the champagne corks in the White House right now. Carney is doubtless practicing his "sad and noble" face in front of the mirror so he can get it just right when he deplores gun ownership in this country at his next news session.
The photos of the frightened herd flowing out of the terminal would be funny if it weren't so pathetic. For all the world, they looked like a flock of sheep that have been startled. The "witness" on Fox News is saying "people were running and screaming." He says an old lady fell down and he couldn't help her up. I guess it was "sauve qui peut." Chivalry may not be dead in Texas but it seems to be moribund in the People's Democratic Republic of California.
It's interesting to note the L.A. Police Chief has repeatedly stated in the past that security was so tight at L.A.X. no one need worry about an "incident." Yet it seems this shooter just walked in and let go.
One TSA type was shot,( according to the conference though they clearly have no idea what has really gone on) but several were injured. Fox says they were injured in the panic when the mob started running away. None of the TSA people seem to have tried to stop the shooter, and they got trampled trying to flee. These TSA "officers" are being described as "heroes." I guess the California definition of heroic is somewhat different than mine.
The news conference at the airport is on now. All of these instances result in news conferences where the police laud one another for their "heroic" actions. It reminds me of when the swarm of police shot the unarmed woman with mental problems in D.C.
All the little bureaucrats are having their say at the conference now. The current drone is saying "the city is standing tall." OK. I notice when each pencil pusher gets up to the microphone he or she spells their last name so the newspapers will get it right. They make their obligatory obeisance to the wonderful job the police did. The FBI guy is making a laudatory speech now. Must be a tough time to be in the FBI, since Lon Horiuchi retired they really haven't had a serving role model to base their behavior on. But they can always remember the good old days. Waco, Ruby Ridge and Janet Reno will always be there for them.
If only Piers Morgan from CNN had been at the airport, none of this would have happened.
Well, I suppose I'll check the Weather Channel and see what's going on around the mountains in that respect.
