Reuters: 'Terrible Optics' for Obama to Go Golfing and Kerry Yachting During Egypt Coup Daniel Halper July 7, 2013 12:03 PM
Reuters columnist David Rohde said this morning on CBS that it was "terrible optics" for President Obama to go golfing and Secretary of State John Kerry to go yachting as the Egyptian leader was overthrown:
And he gets paid to come to this conclusion.....
It also looks bad, too.
No concern whatsoever for the Egyptian people—Just the creation of a (rightly deserved) negative perception of the Adminstration due to their indifference.
It’s not that hard to understand. They’re running away from their own brush fire.
I suppose it’s better than what he was probably up to the night our diplomats were killed in Libya.
A thousand instances of “bad optics” after 4 1/2 years of Obastard and al Reuters just now gets it? Color me skeptical.
Yes, those would be pluck your eyes out optics.
“Its not that hard to understand. Theyre running away from their own brush fire.”
It is not hard to understand. They aren’t the ones making the decisions, they are puppets and in the last term. Why not enjoy themselves when they aren’t needed behind the teleprompter?
Can't anyone just say that behavior or choices just make someone look bad when weighted against a situation?
Same way the media react to a U.S. tragedy; no care for the people, just how it looks for Obama or what Obama thinks. They are feeding his narcissism.
Can you believe we live in a time when a president is given free reign to do as he pleases while our diplomats are slaughtered, and not one member of our ‘free press’ opts to report the truth?
They did some of the same things under Kennedy to be sure, but ‘bath house’ Barry? That’s something you protect?
Family values, Democrat/Obama style...
If they had a Video of Obama drowning Kittens, PETA would come out with a “how to” follow up Video and the DNC would add Drowning Kittens to their Party Platform.
A new National Holiday would be sure to follow.
Figures, since the Obamadork and the gigolo both have their heads deeply buried in their Obamaholes.
The point is nothing this guy does, says, or omits will EVER come to bite him in the ass. He has free reign, Kings have that luxery.
WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?
“Won” said (paraphrasing) “Well, Viet Nam was over so I didn’t see much need to join the military.” The other one “served” in Viet Nam (in case you forgot) and then came back home and sold his brothers down the river. “Won” is currently the ROTUS (Resident Of The White House) and the other one is secstate(sec sailboarding?). WTF? Truth IS stranger than fiction.
No I cannot. It’s very sad. Hopefully someday all will see the light.
Nah they are both right where they should be, away from anything that they can damage with their stupidity.
Also I noticed that anytime I see Jenjis Kerry doing his activities, he’s all by himself.
His wife isn’t there, and he doesn’t seem to have any buddies that like to do the same activities with him.
I wonder why that is.
