Video: Semi-retired president interrupts burger run to issue brief statement on plane being blown up
Hot Air ^ | July 17,2014 | ALLAHPUNDIT

Posted on 07/17/2014 1:25:50 PM PDT by Hojczyk

Two hundred ninety-five people are presumed dead and the evidence points at Russian-backed Ukrainian separatists, who were boasting earlier today on social media that they’d shot down what they thought was a Ukrainian cargo plane. This wasn’t the only plane crash in Ukraine recently either; U.S. officials blame the others on Russian proxies, so go figure that they’re the prime suspects in today’s horror too. (A separatist leader claims they didn’t do it but nobody believes him.) As Julia Ioffe says, taking down a passenger jet from Amsterdam means that the Ukraine war now has implications for civilians throughout Europe, not just those in Donetsk, which means (at a minimum) much harsher sanctions on Russia and dangerously poor relations with Moscow for NATO going forward. And yet, when O did finally step to the podium more than an hour later, here’s the wisdom his staff had prepared for him to impart:

“It looks like it may be a terrible tragedy.” Here’s the clip, which makes clear that his “statement on Ukraine” isn’t really a statement on Ukraine at all. It’s 60 seconds tacked onto a speech about infrastructure that was already planned for today. This guy will. not. be. thrown. off-message, even if people are falling from the sky over a war zone whose aggressors have already drawn U.S. sanctions. Exit quotation: “Let’s build some bridges. Let’s build some roads.”

China could move to take over Taiwan this weekend, since Obama is obviously up to his a** in alligators at the moment and wouldn’t respond.

when would an airliner cash NOT be a “terrible tragedy”?

what a A$$!!

remember this man-boy gave a shout-out to his native bootlickers before even mentioning the dead troops slain at Ft Hood and took goofy selfies during Nelson Mandela’s funeral but put on a distraught act when the punk Trayvon was killed

he is either stoned a lot of the time or seriously emotionally disordered

I don't think it's either/or. It's probably both.

This is all orchestrated. You folks who keep saying Obama is dumb, incompetent, etc. He knows EXACTLY what he's doing and this detachment and media indifference is to make conservatives angry at him but not at the stealth agenda that's continuously being implemented.

C'mon people. Wake up and start preparing and start being proactive instead of reactive.

The turkey has his priorities but Foreign Affairs nor National Security is among them.

In fact he invites invasion by foreigners both on the North American continent as well as worldwide.

Fundraisers and photo ops are at the top of his list.

You are an irrepressible cynic. You and all the rest of you arm chair critics gotta downing this President

How dare anybody suggest that the Presidents speech on infrastructure was unconnected to the shoot down of the airliner in the Ukraine and that the President is out of touch.

His parting line says it all .

We need to build those roads. We need to build those bridges.

With the proliferation of terrorism since 2009 and acquisition of advanced shoulder launched air to air missiles form Libya siezed in the Benghazi raid, includind American advanced Stingers supplied by Hillary Clinton, we will soon by seeing plenty if airliners shot down right here in the United States.

We are going to need those darn roads and bridges when terrorist shoot downs of domestic air flights with these missiles shut down the American air travel system.

Obama is just ahead of the curve on this critical policy issue.

You Tea Baggers just need to get a life

It's a tragedy when an unforeseen event causes an accident. Clear air turbulence shearing off a wing would be a tragedy. Firing an anti-aircraft missile at a civilian aircraft is an attack. An act of war. The gay, muslim, communist, golfing, vacationing hamburger eater is ignorant of the difference.

"Me and Joe, we share shakes all the time..."

When I read this, an image of Obama and Biden standing side by side at a urinal entered my head.

This is not a fluke, this is who he is.

That was good satire. Don’t be surprised if you get attacked.

The black box for the Malaysian Airliner in Ukraine shoot down today is not the black box for the missing Malaysia plane thought to be in the ocean from a couple months ago.

I’ll go with “seriously emotionally disordered.”

He is a classic sociopathic narcissist.

One of my pet peeves is when someone says “terrible tragedy”, like ther is ever a good one. But with this guy in charge, he probably does think there are good tragedies to use.

I will never use the job title that has been usurped when referring to the communist thug in our White House, but I did enjoy the modifier “semi-retired”. I will be thrilled when that bigot is finally retired for real and America has a chance to recover as much as possible from the destruction.
