President Obama has yet to acknowledge death of American hero Chris Kyle

As Twitchy reported, thousands of people flooded Cowboys Stadium today to pay their respects to slain hero Chris Kyle. But President Obama has yet to pay his respects. Since Kyle’s tragic death on February 2, Obama has remained conspicuously silent. Twitterers have taken notice and are voicing their disgust:

Indeed it is. Clearly, the president can’t be bothered to acknowledge that we’ve lost a true hero. Then again, maybe he’s just waiting for one of his speechwriters to find a way to make the statement all about him.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry, meanwhile, issued this statement earlier today:

“Chris Kyle was the public face of an anonymous breed of American warrior who are handed the hardest missions and assume the largest risks. Chris was among the very best at what he did, and he saved countless American lives in the process. Our state and our nation suffered a profound loss with his passing. I am honored to have known Chris and to have called him my friend.  Anita and I send our deepest condolences to his wife, Taya, his children and the thousands of service members that were his extended family.”

  • Fire and Adjust!

    Chris Kyle doesn’t look like he could be Obama’s son.

    • nc

      Unfortunately, there’s much truth to that.

    • TocksNedlog

      True that. He does not look like Trayvon . . . he looks like a man.

    • anjullyn

      You’re right. Didn’t act like it either. Chris Kyle was a brave man and loved America.

  • Tangchung

    Obama doesn’t deserve the honor to acknowledge the hero Chris Kyle. Obama words wouldn’t be from his heart.

    • Lady 12

      I’m with you on that. Let him slink off into his hole to play with his media and let Chris Kyle rest in peace.

      • Tom Bannigan

        About the only thing he needs to do is post a pic of an empty chair.

    • Elaine

      Yet he found time to send his wife with a note to some random girl’s funeral in Chi town? Not saying her death wasn’t sad, but that seems to be an every day occurrence in that city. I wonder if either of them attended all the funerals of the Benghazi dead?



    • Christian Fenico

      I agree 100%. It word be fake and phoney, just like him.

  • Maxx

    You know, I’d just as soon NOT here any more “I, I, I, I” when talking about the death of another so please, continue your silence Mr. President. This isn’t about you.

    He’s too busy campaigning to be the new Pope.

  • uma

    Obama wont say anything because it wont benefit him in anyway. He makes me sick.

  • disqus_LASIg6epmj

    Am I reading too much into things, but was the scheduling of the Medal of Honor ceremony a message?

  • WisconsinPatriot

    Hopefully I spawn a chorus when I say,please do not say a word about Chris Kyle,Mr.”president”.

  • Jan

    Remaining silent for this length of time makes a statement, and not a good one.

  • copperpeony

    I’m surprised obama didn’t cry about Bin Laden. Chris Kyle is irrelevant in his book, as we all are.

  • Christopher Shaw

    If the president got his butt up before 10 o’clock this morning, he might have been able to do more than one thing today.

  • Palin ECoalition

    I expected Obama to use Kyle’s death to promote gun control. Any other American President would have treated him as a hero. Obama’s status diminishes himself, not Kyle, who has already made his mark in American history. May he rest in peace.

  • JudyinNC

    It would be criminal for Chris Kyle’s name to even be mentioned by O. You know it would not be from the heart but just feigned scripted lip service. Just let him keep his mouth shut for a change.

  • copperpeony

    You all realize we are in the grips of a budding dictator, right? Brennan, a converted muslim for the CIA. Hagel, a Hamas favorite. DHS buying all the ammo. 4 more yrs will bring disaster.

    • SpinMeNot

      We’ve gone past budding — he’s blooming.

  • Gpoupa

    Not a word from President Obama ( Facebook, Twitter, press release) yet Governor Palin makes a personal appearance on her birthday.

  • Kabong30

    I thought Obama acknowledged deaths of any Americans for time immemorial with “bumps in the road”?

  • disqus_e2F2oUH6C7

    He had to speak up on Whitney Houston. Have to keep the hollyweirds happy.

    Reblogged this on Thepoliticalchef's Blog and commented:
    This surprises who?????

  • Garth Haycock

    Why would Dear Leader mention someone who is the antithesis of Dear Leader?

  • SpinMeNot

    There is nothing BHO can say without pissing of the SpecOps community or his leftist gun control base.

    For once, he may actually be smart enough to keep his mouth shut.

    • KansasGirl

      Did O send anyone to represent the WH?

      • SpinMeNot

        If he had, I am sure we’d have heard about it. However, I can find nothing on the internet that would indicate any form of official WH representation.

        The life of an American Patriot was celebrated today, I for one am glad there was no official WH delegation, to turn the celebration into a political event.

        • KansasGirl

          Totally agree, Spin.
          I was going for sarcasm, but I failed.
          Sorry, I meant no harm. KG

          • SpinMeNot

            KG, you did nothing wrong, I am very sorry if my post seemed to indicate that I was in disagreement with you, or was correcting you.

            To be honest, I enjoyed the exchange, I thought that between the two of us we raised the salient points. It was not a good day yesterday, our exchange was a bit of sunshine on an otherwise morose day.

    Who cares?

  • Michelle

    It’s OK. Barry is totally and completely unworthy of even having the name Chris Kyle pass his lips. I would not want such an anti-American narcissist saying one word about this pure, loyal and dedicated TRUE AMERICAN.

    • golftilidrop

      Bravo Michelle

      Bravo, well said.

      Why doesn’t someone just put a 7.62 bullet thru this man’s egotistical brain ?

  • John Giovanni Bellomo

    I cannot begin to say how much of an asshat he is, as a 20 year Navy Corpsman myself, he is disrespecting everyone that serves for every minute he remains in office!

    • detroit19

      Ty for your service, sir.

  • Guest

    In public… he’s probably fist-bumping in private.

  • Silenttype78

    He probably thought ” what difference does it make?”.

  • Gene

    Because he was behind it!

  • KansasGirl

    O doesn’t have the guts.
    Chris Kyle is everything that O will never, ever be.

  • agroulx

    You mean this hero’s family didn’t even get a letter with a fake Obama signature yet?

  • AlertUpUSA


  • Patrick Dennehy

    Totally disrespected the memory of Woods, Doherty, Smith and Stevens after Benghazi. I can’t say I am surprised by this, sickened, but not surprised. 4 more years of this. truly disgraceful, a president that hates and undermines America at every opportunity. He doesn’t even know how to be ashamed of himself.

    R.I.P. Chris Kyle, thank you for your service and sacrifice.

    God bless Chris Stevens

    If Chris would have been a Rapper , Barry would have been ” all up in it ” .

    Who cares what the Coward-in-Chief thinks,
    Chris Kyle was worth a thousand people like Obama.

      he is garbage: like the city he lived in!

  • Mike Johnson

    Something stinks about this. Something really stinks. I have yet to see one photo of the shooter, much less any in-depth reporting. That said, Obama saying ANYTHING about this man would be a disgrace to his memory. Obama doesn’t posess in one strand of his kinky hair the honor and valor Chris Kyle exemplified. To hell with sports stars, to hell with “actors” in Hollyweird. Chris Kyle is the very definition of a hero and role model. He shall be sadly missed.

    • SpinMeNot

      Former Marine, PTSD, in-and-out of mental hospital recently. The system failed both of the men killed as well as the accused shooter. A horrible ending for all.

      The D/FW TV stations have been showing his picture for several days now.

      • Michelle

        But MSN won’t discuss the shooter and the hell of PTSD he’s been living with, for to do so would only shed light on how the Barry Admin has been failing our veterans, particularly those returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.

        • SpinMeNot

          Yes boys and girls, it really is that simple.

          • Michelle

            I guess the only good part about MSN keeping this on the low side is, those fkng left wing nutjobs will not be dancing Chris and Chad’s graves and using their deaths for their gun control political agendas. This tragedy was NOT the result of gun laws, it is 100% about our government’s failure and blind eyes and deaf eyes to our war veterans and the hell they live with long after they come home. This blood is on THEIR hands.

  • StandforSomething6012

    Maybe he sees it as one less long shooter to worry about..

  • antranchers

    Obama is not going to recognize a person who killed friends of his. His brothers!

  • Raye09

    Obama only acknowledges people whose problems can help him politically.

  • Shawn

    Funny Obama touts the killing of Bin-Laden, but the guy that shot that POS (different story) is out of a job among other things….

  • poljunkie♪

    It’s pathetic that Pres O just can’t
    bring himself to recognize Chris Kyle.

    Whether you liked President Bush or not,
    he would have been at the podium the same day, with heartfelt reaction and sentiment.

    Obama continues to divide the Country.

  • littlebytes

    Sad how some people show no respect for a war hero who saved many American lives. In the meantime, our ‘commander in chief’ is a no s how and still silent on American Sniper, Navy SEAL and war hero Chris Kyle’s death. Video Arlington, TX:Thousands Attend American Sniper’s Memorial At Cowboys Stadium Must watch!There are also petitions to name a Navy vessel after Chris Kyle, and a High School according to local news reports.

  • ember

    Obama is threatened by men like Chris Kyle. He doesn’t measure up and he knows it. Chris Borner on the other hand, he totally feels equal to.

    • TocksNedlog

      “Obama is threatened by men”
      — Shortened it up for ya.

  • Stan Gallant

    Obama can’t see past his own reflection, much less reflect on someone else’s greatness. He would only tarnish the memory of a real hero.

  • Randy McDaniels

    Chris Kyle killed Muslim Jihadist…you know…just like the ones who he invites into the WHITEHOUSE and Supplies with Weapons of war. Is it really a surprise Obama would not want to achknowlede a war hero.

  • Junie3

    He’ll tell you about the time he was a sniper, how those two gays from his church were shot execution style, and how the FBI agent that was investigating him was shot while sitting in his car.

  • ZULU13

    One has to question the actions, or in this case the lack of action, regarding this Buffoon who sits in the White House. He lies to the middle class by taxing them January 1, he cuts military spending (one of the few cuts he does), he sends weaponry to a known enemy, he taunts the south, he is in constant class war with the white male, he has no plan for the thousands of military he will be adding to unemployment, nor does care, and he has separated this Country on multiple levels, including the 2nd Amendment. When you put together these demographics together, you have white southern males with military background who own guns. Thats a pretty dangerous group of people to piss off!
    RIP Chris, and Thank You for your service!

  • dmacleo

    hes trying to find a way to work it into gun control and expanded government roles w/o getting a backlash. right now there is no way to do so w/o getting the backlash.
    watch for oblique references at SOTU address then over next 2 weeks or so more and more mentions.
    and the media will backtrack him to make it look like he was always sorry over it.

  • TocksNedlog

    Obama doesn’t believe in snipes.

  • reneehaigh

    barack obama loves one person: HIM he doesn’t care about the Kyle family! he is a racist who lost his other half: he uses his color to get what he wants because if he doesn’t he plays the race card. he is not worthy to eat the gum off the bottom of Chris Kyle’s shoe!he used sandy to get the votes on the undecided: he used sandy hook to push his agenda: and he even said trevon martin would look like him if he were his son. to use this young mans death to personalize it:disgusting~! and i don’t put anything past him anymore! 4 more years; of bullshit then we can clean out the stall! we can look forward to a great new election: rubio 2106

    If there’s nothing in it for Barack, he won’t bother.

  • $36544368

    Every time I read stories like this, my heart breaks…not only for the families of those who have been horribly impacted, but also because we have a president with no soul, no spark, no feelings, and doesn’t give a damn about anyone but himself. The man seriously has a narcissistic personality disorder. I would be so embarrassed if I were him…but then again, he wouldn’t know how to be embarrassed…that’s one of the symptoms of NPD. Unfortunately, Obamacare doesn’t cover that, so we’ll have to put up with it for another 4 years. I gotta get in the lab and start working on an anti-Obama pill…/smh

  • nic

    I consider that a suicide. He created that scenario like a thug going in the hood to buy drugs from a gangster.. What do you expect as an eventuality?



  • Cuffs

    Are we amazed to be amazed? Obama is an empty suit,
    a liar and a fraud. How much longer will Americans tolerate
    this “man” who is interested in nothing but his own
    aggrandizement. Isn’t his big ass wife supposed to be
    so supportive of military families? Where the hell was
    she? No doubt looking for another ugly sleeveless
    dress and bad bra.

  • jason1978

    If Obama mentioned him you guys would be crying about how Obama is using him to promote gun control.
