After Shooting of Deputy by Illegals, Obama Decides to Change the Subject

After having plenty to say about SB 1070 this week, I notice Barack Obama isn't so keen on talking about it now following the shooting of an Arizona Sheriff's Deputy by illegal aliens.
Seventeen people were detained overnight in the search for suspects in Friday¹s shooting of Pinal County Sheriff¹s Deputy Louis Puroll by suspected drug smugglers in an isolated area of south-central Arizona.

Pinal County Lt. Tami Villar says 14 of those detained are suspected of being illegal immigrants, while three match the description given of the shooters give by Puroll.

The 14 suspected illegal immigrants are being held by Border Patrol, while the three suspects are being questioned by the Pinal Sheriff's office.

The Sheriff's Office is also conducting an internal investigation into the shooting, standard policy whenever a shooting involving an officer takes place.

Villar added that evidence recovered from the scene is only now being processed, but that no weapons have been found.

Puroll, who had been shot with an AK-47-type weapon around 4 p.m., according to the Sheriff's Office, has declined requests to be interviewed.
You would think the commander-in-chief would says a few words about the incident. But no. In today's address he decided to ignore yesterday's incident and talk about the ever ugent need for ... campaign finance reform.

He didn't even bother to mention the disastrous oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico that he ignored for a week. For an idea how slow he was to respond, here's a timeline of events. Imagine the response had Bush been so cavalier.
