Obama response to bombing slow

It is obvious that no one had any idea who was responsible for the bombings in Boston, yet did anyone notice that it took two hours before President Obama addressed the bombings? When 9-11 occurred, President Bush was on all the stations talking about the disaster within minutes and he talked without having to refer to any notes or use the teleprompter. Surprisingly, the press never commented on why there was no comment from the White House or the president for two hours. If President Bush waited that long, the press would be screaming for his blood. When President Obama finally spoke two plus hours later, he had to read his comments. When bad news happens, President Obama has to wait until someone writes what he should say. President Obama is a talking head, and an empty suit.
