Concha: Two Huge Intíl Crises Canít Alter Busy Schedule of Fundraiser-in-Chief
Mediaite ^ | 17 Jul 2014 | Joe Concha

Jon Stewart was exactly right during the open of his Monday show this week: The world really has gone mad.

Actually, Monday now looks in retrospect downright tranquil compared to what we’re seeing on our television sets and on our phones this afternoon. A commercial airliner with 295 people on board — including reportedly 23 Americans — are killed after a plane is shot down in Ukraine. Who exactly is responsible (pro-Russian separatists are suspected) has not been confirmed. More importantly, the State Department hasn’t confirmed any Americans were on the flight.

As if this wasn’t enough, a few hours later, reports of an Israeli ground offensive being launched in Gaza broke as well. A chaotic day in an already much-heavier-than-usual month for news in the middle of summer.

With every story, particularly the big ones, there’s always a political element to it when it comes to the Commander-In-Chief. What’s his reaction? How is he leading in a difficult time? We saw the analysis after 9/11 with former President George W. Bush… who was criticized in some circles for being too passive while reading to school children during a trip to Florida that morning as the attacks were initially unfolding. We heard the same kind of criticism after Hurricane Katrina.

President Obama has faced the same kind of criticism in regards to his reaction to big events as well. But in Mr. Obama’s case, there’s an unsettling and dumbfounding pattern that has clearly emerged: The need to attend fundraisers as important events–the kind of events that call for the President to return to the White House Situation Room for monitoring and assessment of said events while being debriefed by military brass and talking with our allies, including Israel–unfold in real time.

But as we’re seeing here in New York right now, the President is headlining the first of two fundraisers to take on the real enemy to America’s interests: Republicans....................Obama doesn't give a damn he does whatever he wants...He's the King.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen this unexplainable, embarrassing reaction from the president to events like this. Mr. Obama flew to Las Vegas the morning after the Benghazi terror attack. Did another fundraiser as Russia first invaded Crimea. Followed suit after the VA Scandal exploded by doing two more fundraisers in Chicago. And just last week, he wouldn’t visit the border while in Texas during that “humanitarian crisis” (his words) in favor of doing two more fundraisers in the same state…a move even some fellow Democrats and liberal media were left scratching their heads over............But they still support him!

Rush is right —His Presidency is NOT ending:

It is ONLY NOW in fact JUST BEGINNING.

He’s getting more and more honest about who he REALLY is.

I think the descent will go more quickly now, as he realizes he’s now fooling no one.

So WHY NOT just get really blatant with it…?

Obama is becoming more obstinate by the day. He doesn’t care what anyone thinks or who he hurts, including Dems.

The child occupying the White House, I will not call him a man, has never been-is now-or ever will be competent to do anything more than breathe and read from a teleprompter.

Whoever the Edgar Bergen is to that Charlie McCarthy, is pure evil genius as much as I hate to say it. The entire world has been played by someone or something. The child in the WH isn’t smart enough to do it. Maybe one day, we’ll find out, maybe not. Either way, the world and the people of the USA are suffering for it.

We all know that 0bama is the worst would-be president ever to usurp the office, but who in hell are the morons that pay to hear his drivel, which always ends up being about him?

Those would be the people who stand to profit by the favors Zero will promise to confer in return for the cash. He can stiff them later.

You’d have to have no soul to attend the fundraiser.

Hi ya Queen E. Here's an iPod with all of my teleprompter renderings so far... Oh, no need to bow to my eminence yet...

I hate to say it, but I think that Amerika needs to get the sh_t kicked out of it, and to really, really STINK in military operations, in order for the sheeple & the military to rise up against 0dumb0 & the demoCRAPs. With affirmative action senior leadership positiona in the military, promoting unqualified minorities, muzzzlim, homos & lesbians, I think it is only a matter of time before the “good” military patriots realize that they need to take things into their own hands and forcibly remove 0dumb0 & the demoCRAPs from power!

Watching MSNBC as Osama gives a speech in DE to talk about the shooting down of a civilian aircraft in Ukrain. As he reads his teleprompter, the obvios union goons behind him are laughing and paying no attention to what the idiot is saying. MSNBC quickly cuts away to the usual morons experts who know nothing about aviation. Savanah whats her name says we shouldn’t rush to judgement, and then the eggspert do just that. Sorry for the misspell.

The "Campaigner in Chief" only knows how to campaign. Even FIVE YEARS after his first election, he has YET to grow into the job he was elected to perform. He can't do the "hard stuff", it's ALL above his pay grade! He is nothing more than a high-priced figurehead dancing to the tune his handlers play. The "most powerful man in the world" is a lazy petulant child!

Well, he did say “this could be a tragedy”. And, the press was told that he’s being kept up to date. /s

Truthfully, I think the safest this country is at anytime is when he’s not on the job.

Like I said on another post. Anybody that was at a Hampton’s fundraiser was already going to give him big money. Whether he attended or not. He just wanted to PARTY. Sick.

“Truthfully, I think the safest this country is at anytime is when he’s not on the job.”

Unfortunately, even when he isn’t, Jarrett probably is.

Actually, if we really think about it, the fall elections are crucial to him for advancing his ‘transform America’ agenda, so to him fundraising is critical. It's all about the agenda.

In WWII, General Eisenhower would have stepped up and join forces with other military leaders to remove obozo from the White House. This man had balls and believed in the Constitution, our Freedom and Liberty. Too many men & women lost their lives in wars past for the same beliefs.

I pray that the good military patriots do what is right when the time comes.

Obama will disappear and re-emerge as a woman with a new identity and will be the next POTUS.

I may even bet money on that.

especially the sex change part, sure bet there.

Rather, there are now 3 crises, the plane shoot-down, IDF going into Gaza, and the American southern border.

Anyone who thinks he actually gives a damn about what happened is sadly mistaken.
