Obama: Joplin, Check, Lay Wreath, Check & Now, Let the Big Dog Eat
President Obama made it to Joplin on Sunday, a week after the killer tornado ravaged the town. He had some remarks at the memorial for the tornado victims. But while Obama waited in the front row he was, if can you believe it, he was . . . watch the video:
When President Obama took to the podium he made some moving remarks as well as relating some stories of the the heroic efforts of several during the terrible storm. Unfortunately, the president lapsed into campaign mode.
The cameras may leave, the spotlight may shift, but we will be with you every step of the way until Joplin is restored and this community is back on its feet. We’re not going anywhere!
The words were fine but the tone and delivery were so wrong. I’m sorry but he was at a memorial. For me this instantly brought back memories of president’s Arizona remarks about Gabby Giffords. Obama just seems to do the most inappropriate things. Some things the president does are just inexplicable.
On Memorial Day, President Obama placed a wreath at the tomb of the unknown soldier. This is something the Commander in Chief is expected to do. Unfortunately, Obama skipped it in 2009, but this year he pulled it off without a hitch.
America has lost a million men and women who perished in service to their country. Memorial Day is very important to many Americans. Apparently, Obama holds it in a slightly different light, because this afternoon, in 90 degree heat, the president again took to the links, this time at Fort Belvoir Golf club. Yes, another round of golf for the president.
On Memorial Day, 2011, the Commander in Chief played golf. Let that sink in for a moment. It’s just not right. It’s a slap in the face to those who have served and totally disrespectful of our fallen heroes. I’m just guessing it didn’t go down well with our active duty men and women. The Whitehouse was worried about how it looked. No pictures or coverage of the Obama’s Memorial Day golf outing was permitted.
I think it’s time to ask a very important question. What’s wrong with President Obama? I’m serious. He forgets what year it is. He stammers constantly. He turns what should be solemn occasions into pep rallies or campaign speeches . . . it’s hard to tell which.
I’m sorry Joplin, you’ve suffered so much, but don’t put too much stock in what the president said. I’m sorry for our military and their families. Our president is either tone deaf, callous . . . or what else could it be? I am sorry for all Americans stuck with this failed but arrogant president during very tough economic times. Obama keeps saying he’s going to focus like a laser on this issue or that but he never does. Why can’t he focus?
I’m going to say it straight out. There’s something wrong with President Obama. What kind of meds is Obama on or what kind does he need?
