Obama Still Not Scheduled to Visit West, Texas

by Keith Koffler on April 22, 2013, 8:34 am

Updated 1:22 pm ET

UPDATE: The White House put out word this afternoon that President Obama will attend a memorial service Thursday in Waco, Texas for the victims of the fertilizer plant explosion in West.

The original story as it ran this morning:

President Obama is still not scheduled to visit the devastated community of West, Texas, where an explosion at a fertilizer plant five days ago killed 14 – including 11 emergency responders – and wounded approximately 200 people.

Up to 75 homes were damaged, as well as an apartment complex that was decimated.

Obama so far has sent prayers and money to the town, but not himself.

According to Bridget Johnson at  PJ Media, Texas senator Ted Cruz said it is “doubtful” that Obama will visit the town.

He will have ample opportunity. The president, along with First Lady Michelle Obama, will be in Texas two days this week, heading to Dallas Wednesday for a Democratic National Committee fundraiser and then remaining in the city overnight.

On Thursday, he is scheduled to attend the dedication ceremony for the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas.

But he may be on a tight schedule as he is supposed to attend the Planned Parenthood Gala in Washington Thursday evening.

couldn’t. You change the entire meaning when you say it wrong.

Keyser April 22, 2013 at 9:19 am

No he didn’t. If you don’t understand the differences in colloquial expressions, then you shouldn’t comment. It is perfect acceptable in the US to say “I couldn’t care less”, just as it is appropriate in other regions of the world to say “I could care less”. Capiche?

Now both of us are being pedantic.

wenders99 April 22, 2013 at 11:21 am

Keyser,
You are wrong. Saying you could care less implies that you care, even if it’s just a little bit. If you don’t understand that “could not” is not the same as “could”, then you shouldn’t comment. Words, even the small ones, matter.

Shears_of_Atropos April 22, 2013 at 11:40 am

Disagree. The two sentences are semantically equivalent because there are some pieces physically missing but understood as part of the context:

(The words in brackets are contextually understood)

(1) I couldn’t care less {if I tried, and I don’t care to try!})
(2a) I could care less {but it would take superhuman effort, and most likely fail.}
(2b) I could care less {but I don’t!}

All sentences connote a negative judgement with respect to the topic at hand, with sentence #1 perhaps a bit more negative than sentence #2a or #2b. In common usage, they are considered equivalent.

C. Barnes April 22, 2013 at 12:27 pm

What you seem to be forgetting is that expressions over time can lose their literal meaning, and mean exactly the opposite of what the words suggest. Ever heard of irony? Sarcasm? Ever hear someone say “how nice,” when they mean “not nice at all”?

“I could care less,” despite its literal meaning, has come to be understood to mean the same as “I couldn’t care less.” That’s true whether or not you approve of the fact.

By what theory of language can words only convey their literal meaning? It’s certainly not true in English.

I “could care less” has always been an acceptable way to way to say that you don’t care at all, at least it has been where I am from, Texas. I agree it doesn’t make logical sense, but expressions like this don’t always make logical sense. You understand them because that is the way people talk where you are from. So jaydavis is correct. I understood Terry perfectly.

Some colloquial expressions work only when spoken. Usually, when someone says, “I could care less,” and they mean “I couldn’t care less,” their body language or tone of voice will convey the unspoken sarcasm. In print, one has to guess.

He can’t take time to go to West because he has to be back in DC for a Planed Parent Hood event. I guess in his mind he only needs to attend events that support him. It doesn’t matter that a town was blown off the map but its OK for him to support KILLING BABIES. He will never be anything other than a community organizer in my mind.!!!!!!!!!!

Liberals have no problems with the killing, via abortion, of hundreds of thousands of unborn babies, and even born babies, but ask the death penalty for some slug that rapes and murders a child and listen to them whine, cry and demonstrate about how that is “cruel and unusual punishment”. If this child mudrder Gosnell should get the death penalty, which probably won’t happen, the left wing liberal nuts will be out in force demonstrationg about how could such a cruel punishment be placed on this kind man.

Obama just hasn’t found a way to politicize the tragedy in West, yet. Although I have already heard the media trying to set it up for him, claiming “In times of austerity, it’s hard to do all the inspections needed for safety” and similar statements.

As soon as he can turn this into a wedge issue, he will gladly pimp the memories of the victims for his own benefit.

I never expected BO to go to West, did ANYONE?? what is a surprise is why he is even coming to Texas! he had his photo op in Boston. maybe he just does not want to go home to that single mom; what’s her name? oh yea, michelle. he is raising money for the narcissistic ME ME ME, never goes anywhere that does not move forward HIS agenda. worst president I have ever seen, Nakita Kruschevf was correct, we are rotting from within, and BO is our proof of this.

All the living Presidents will be at the dedication of the presidential library. That is the only reason he is going. That is another photo op for him.

Make this dirtbag wait 3+ hours sitting in the penality box off the runway like the rest of us have too. It is his actions on why we are in the mess that we are in.

This guy will spend billions flying around the globe to take as many vacations as possible while the rest of us have to feel the pinch.

If he stayed in DC perhaps there would be more money to stave ff furloughing the air traffic controllers.

This poor excuse for a President should stay in the White House for a change and do what he was elected to do. Lead the country?
Do not think he has the ability to lead. He has the ability to spend the taxpayers money though!

Of course not. Obama has already established his dislike of Texas, and any other red state for that matter, in the public record. Why should this come as a surprise? Texans take care of Texans, we don’t need him getting in the way anyways.

Yeah, but he will come here with his hand out for donations. I say we bite it off.

Keyser April 22, 2013 at 9:20 am

He will come to Texas to accept donations to his socialist regime, but not visit the site of a tragic accident last week. A pox on him and his house. In other words, screw the ethnically challenged POTUS and all that he stands for.

Just where is this “gala” celebrating the death of untold millions of unborn (and now we find out, born) children being held?
Will they be honoring their answer to the Nazi’s Mengele, Kermit Gosnell?

It’s time for some serious consideration of the frivolous waste of time that fills the President’s schedule. Honoring sport team winners, evaluating children’s school projects, and other likewise events are not appropriate for the POTUS in this age of world-wide crisis and national concerns.
MrObama’s announced attendance at a “gala” sponsored by the organization that promotes abortion that so many Americans oppose is wrong and offensive.

The testimony of one of Gosnell’s workers describing an aborted baby trying to swim to safety while being flushed down the toilet is burnished in my memory. How these monsters could celebrate the evil they have wrought on this society is beyond my comprehension.

Why would he want to go to west, there are already dead americans there. He needs to go to the Planned parenthood “gala” in Washington so he kill more americans through abortion. Funny how Planned parenthood has a “gala” or party for the killing of babies.

What else is new? Did anyone ever believed that Obama would give moral support to the white and hard working Texans? Can’t let compassion get in the way of getting more money and making it back to DC in time for a party for a “pro” abortion organization. After all, Michelle has a new “government paid for” party dress. You know, maybe it’s just as well he doesn’t show up. It would be a distraction away from those suffering from their losses. God is there for these folks. Who needs a greedy, phoney, Muslim, anti-Christian, socialist.

Meh. It’s just some Hispancs that I already own, and some White people who are too racist to ever vote for me, and a state that’s already a masterpiece of Democrat gerrymandering. There are no liberals, liberal fun, or liberal causes in sight, and no movie star attractions, not to mention a complete lack of really good golf. Not even a decent bathouse in the whole place. Pass.
