Seriously, there’s something very, very wrong with this man.
Do you remember Obama’s response to the Ft. Hood shooting?
“…After news broke out of the shooting at the Fort Hood Army post in Texas, the nation watched in horror as the toll of dead and injured climbed. The White House was notified immediately and by late afternoon, word went out that the president would speak about the incident prior to a previously scheduled appearance. At about 5 p.m., cable stations went to the president. The situation called for not only his trademark eloquence, but also grace and perspective.
But instead of a somber chief executive offering reassuring words and expressions of sympathy and compassion, viewers saw a wildly disconnected and inappropriately light president making introductory remarks. At the event, a Tribal Nations Conference hosted by the Department of Interior’s Bureau of Indian affairs, the president thanked various staffers and offered a “shout-out” to “Dr. Joe Medicine Crow — that Congressional Medal of Honor winner.”
Three minutes in, the president [finally] spoke about the shooting, in measured and appropriate terms.
Who is advising him?…“
This speaks to a total lack of empathy which is …well, it’s kinda creepy, and it’s one of the initial reasons folks like me started to refer to the president as the Narcissist-in-Chief.
His supporters laughed that off as being a big nothing-burger, but he never completely shook that label. Originally thought to be “cool”, that moment revealed Obama to be eerily cold, instead.
Fast forward to this Monday, following the news of the tragic Shooting at the Navy Yard. The following four videos (below) will give you a better sense of what happened this time, and how incredibly unsettling it actually is. It’s not just that Obama seemed unbothered by what had happened: it’s that he practically bent over backwards to make it clear that he was unbothered.
Like I said: creepy.
Obama’s obvious lack of any semblance of awareness or tact is jarring, …or at least it would be to anyone who’d been ignoring all the signs of this before now.
The President’s recent Syria fiasco has shown the country that he has no idea what he’s doing when it comes to our military. Yet when viewed in context with THIS incident, it’s obvious why: he doesn’t actually give a rat’s hindquarters about our military.
And I suspect that feeling applies to the rest of us, too.
