“Before I begin, obviously the world is watching reports of a downed passenger jet near the Russia-Ukraine border. And it looks like it may be a terrible tragedy. Right now we’re working to determine whether there were American citizens on board. That is our first priority. And I’ve directed my national security team to stay in close contact with the Ukrainian government. The United States will offer any assistance we can to help determine what happened and why. And as a country, our thoughts and prayers are with all the families and passengers, wherever they call home. (pause)
But enough on that, I just flew in from Washington (pause) and boy are my arms tired. (pause for laugh) Congress has been saying I’m crazy. I told them ‘If you don’t mind I’d like a second opinion.’ They said ‘Alright, you’re ugly too!’ (pause again for laugh) Hey, don’t like ‘em? So sue me. Ba dump bump… (pause to crickets chirping) OK, down to business, Republicans are bastards for not funding new airports and sh!t.” — President Barack Obama (July 2014)
OK, the first part was actually Barack Obama announcing the tragedy of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 being shot down and killing all 295 passengers (23 Americans). It took him about 40 seconds. THEN he launched into “prepared” remarks spoon feed to him by TOTUS (Teleprompter of the United States) that began with jokes and shout-outs. He spoke for 16 more minutes…
The Actual Jokes:
There were the actual jokes he used to transition from the announcement of the murder of 295 people to his partisan denouncement of his opponents.
“It is great to be in the state that gave us Joe Biden. We’ve got actually some better-looking Bidens with us here today. We’ve got Beau and his wife, Hallie, are here.”
Shout out to Treasury Secretary Jack Lew in the audience “Jack Lew’s signature is actually on your money, although it’s kind of illegible. We teased him when he first became treasury secretary that he was going to have to fix his signature a little bit because it looked just like a caterpillar running along the bottom.”
When I heard this I was appalled. What kind man is so disconnected from reality he has no concept of the appropriate reaction and tone here? What kind of men surround this moron who are either just as clueless or choose not to guide him away from being an obvious assh%le? That’s what handlers are for! That’s their job!
And where the @#$% was Michele. At least she seemed to realize that taking a selfie at a funeral was inappropriate; so you would think that she’d have a chance to glare and be pissed here as well. Though, admittedly, she may have just been pissed that Obama was flirting with a blonde bimbo from Denmark (at a funeral).
Look, when this sh!t happens you’ve got to first have the sense realize what is appropriate and then be able to change the game plan to the situation, no matter what is up and ready on the TOTUS. It’s just common freakin’ sense! It’s just something that should be standard operating procedure at this level of the game.
Is it Me:
At first I thought… it’s just got to be me. This is really socially acceptable now and I’m just a partisan old man who isn’t up with the times. This has got to be my gut instinct to kick the President, no matter what he does…
Thank God for Piers Morgan (leftist CNN talking head) who came to my defense in the following tweet. “President Obama massively dropped the ball just now. 23 Americans killed and he says ‘it looks like a terrible tragedy’ then back to jokes?”
Exactly! Even the leftists are beginning to see this boob for what he is; though it won’t stop them from voting for more of the same.
House Speaker John Boehner released a brief statement on the tragedy…”Many innocents were killed today. It is horrifying, and we await the facts. Right now, we should all take a moment to reflect, count our blessings, and convey our prayers to the loved ones of the victims.”
No delving into what he may have been planning to say. No partisan attacks on the President. No shout-outs or selfies…
Vice President Joe Biden reportedly spoke to Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko to offer U.S. assistance to help determine what happened in crash. He may or may not have had a planned speech, but he didn’t go find a microphone and show his @ss. He had the since to shut… up…
When Biden… Joe Biden… THE Job Biden… is showing more common sense and looking more presidential than the president; we have a problem.
Once again, President Barack Obama has proven himself to be socially retarded* and executively inept.
* Please note when I use the word “retarded”, I use it not as a slur but as an accurate descriptive adjective concerning his ability to ascertain and react appropriately to social situations when other of his age, profession, etc. would easily know what to do.
