This is how a more enlightened 21st century U.S. President addressed the downing of a civilian airliner:
It looks like it may be a terrible tragedy.
Why cant I just eat my waffle?

America evolving: Open all night . And by open, I mean OPEN.

The airliner destruction just got in the way of his fundraiser, and his upcoming vacation.
Obama: "Tough Noogies"
Reagan: Historic speech, actual action [GPS system released to airlines, plus making the Russians look even worse.]
Obama: *Giggle giigle* Duh hurr durr duh *giggle giggle*
Man, we are SO SCREWED.
Every time I watch that video of Reagan, I get a pit in my stomach because I know we’ve got nothing like that, and may not for a long while.
It’s enough to keep me up at night.

So hard to watch video of Reagan, a time when the office of President meant something, when America was respected, when we actually had a foreign policy and the CIC grieved along with the American people when a tragedy occurred.
So hard to watch that knowing I must return to the reality that is this country’s nightmare - an illegal, American hating man child in office.
