Skip to comments.Video: Semi-retired president interrupts burger run to issue brief statement on plane being blown up
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 theyd shot down what they thought was a Ukrainian cargo plane. This wasnt the only plane crash in Ukraine recently either; U.S. officials blame the others on Russian proxies, so go figure that theyre the prime suspects in todays horror too. (A separatist leader claims they didnt 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, heres the wisdom his staff had prepared for him to impart:
It looks like it may be a terrible tragedy. Heres the clip, which makes clear that his statement on Ukraine isnt really a statement on Ukraine at all. Its 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: Lets build some bridges. Lets 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.
This guy should be impeached today
Further proof (as if more is needed) that this hobo is the worst president ever.
Not even pretending anymore.
“Cant I just enjoy my burger in peace without being bothered with dead Americans..hey sir, don’t forget to add extra pickles”
If I were China I would take the senkakus and Taiwan and maybe even Okinawa starting THIS WEEKEND.
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.
C'mon people. Wake up and start preparing and start being proactive instead of reactive.
He is a narcisist. It is all about him. Nothin else matters.
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.
He will NEVER be impeached.
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
The Great Uniter
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.
Most importantly, did Emperor Zero get his burger ?
Can we call this Obama’s “Stink-Burger” moment?
