Skip to comments.Bloodless President Barack Obama makes Americans wistful for George W Bush

During the election campaign, Barack Obama's cool detachment was a winning quality, the "No Drama Obama" a welcome contrast with the "Mr Angry" John McCain, never mind the hot-headed "I'm the decider" President George W Bush.
A year into his presidency, however, Mr Obama seems a curiously bloodless president. If he experiences passion, he seldom shows it. It is often anyone's guess as to whether an event or issue truly moves him.
More serious perhaps was Mr Obama's strange disconnectedness over the Fort Hood massacre of 13 soldiers by an Army major and devout Muslim who opposed the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, had praised suicide bombing and shouted "Allahu Akbar" as he opened fire.

That one statement encapsulates perfectly the current POTUS. He cares about one thing, himself. That is all. The massacre at FT. Hood was a distraction to his important ass kissing to the native americans at the conference he spoke at. Anyone watching his bizzare behavior in that speech could see he did not give a damn about the soldiers. It is all about him, all the time.
Does Van Jones come to mind here?
He is a fascist, genuinely. People are just starting to get it. The pieces of the jig saw that many of us saw 2 years ago, are coming together.
He is a Muslim so why be concerned about what happened at Ft. Hood. Check out the American Thinker. They have a video of him telling that he is a Muslim.
“Completely missing was the eloquence that Mr Obama employs when talking about himself.”
....he waxes eloquent about himself because he likes to play “the big negro”
(I cleaned up the quoted expression to comply with FR’s rules)
It's hard to be empathetic when, in your mind, you are the only thing that matters.
Hi - it means ‘emotionless’ over here. I think it was that emotional diconnect he had when talking about those of his soldiers (sorry about that, he is not worthy of them) who had just been murdered. There was no visceral reaction.
That quote absolutely cracked me up, too. It is the PERFECT description of the narcissist in chief, isn’t it?
Not totally true. He did claim to be ‘shocked and outraged’ a while back about a killing in KS.
That pictures says it all. It is Obama in a nutshell!
Think his golf scores are close to reality?
Obama is just reading the lines written for him. Spontaneity is rare and strictly for personal aggrandizement. He has no feelings for his audience, period.
That he and Slick Willie have a lot in common, narcissism being the most prominent. Neither could imagine they were lucky enough to be the center of the world and riding around on Airforce One. They love it.
Slick had been an Attorney General and Governor of Arkansas so he at least had some familiarity with being a politician in office and with policies and governing. Obama only knew Shuck and Jive as an ACORN community organizer.
The media laid the groundwork for the 2008 election by hammering Bush and the Republicans 24/7 for eight years. Then they elected Obama by constantly praising him and steadfastly ignoring any negatives, like his not being eligible to run.
He and the media rode the crest of white guilt on the wave of "The First Black President", ignoring that they had already bestowed that title on Slick. As a result, we now have a President completely unqualified, unprepared and totally incapable of governing.
The list, ping
