Video: Pretty much everyone expressing dismay over White House response to world falling apart
Hot Air ^ | July 17, 2014 | BY MARY KATHARINE HAM

Posted on 07/17/2014 6:49:56 PM PDT by Hojczyk

Was the Bear loose today? If Valerie Jarrett wanted to get a hashtag going for the president, #smh might have worked. Shep wasn’t the only one baffled by the White House’s insistence on pretending today was a day for the normal shake run and spin.

Via the Free Beacon, first ABC notes that the president seemed blindsided by Israel’s starting ground operations in Gaza today. Jonathan Karl cites the President’s and State Department’s optimism just hours earlier that a ceasefire would happen. Second, Gen. Barry McCaffrey wonders aloud to Brian Williams on NBC why State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki seems utterly useless and uninformed on a matter of this importance:

Piers Morgan ✔ @piersmorgan Follow President Obama massively dropped the ball just now. 23 Americans killed and he says 'it looks like a terrible tragedy' then back to jokes? 2:16 PM - 17 Jul 2014 2,421 RETWEETS 951 FAVORITES ReplyRetweetFavorite Piers Morgan ✔ @piersmorgan Follow Let me help, Mr President - it IS a terrible tragedy, and it's more probably mass murder of your citizens & many other nations' citizens. 2:18 PM - 17 Jul 2014

Sadly the only thing worse is if Obama were to actually do something.

He’s genetically incapable of doing the right thing.

You certainly are correct.

But it is a tragedy in the making.

Bengazi....and obumbler goes to CA to a fund raiser.

Plane shot down....goes to a fund raiser.

VA mistreating veterans, some of who died....goes to a fund raiser.

IRS caught abusing people over their political beliefs....goes to a fund raiser.

Immigrants invading and completely overwhelming border states....goes to a fund raiser in the immediate vicinity and ignores the problem.

We are seeing a re-enactment of Nero fiddling while Rome burns....

Only it is obumbler fiddling while we burn.

It is long past the time to stop talking about obumbler and start talking about what kind of people would hold an event for a scum bag like obumbler. He should have been shunned at every single one of those fund raisers. There should have been ZERO donations to the party in his name.

Who is so lacking in patriotism, morals and good judgment that he would give one dime to the would be emperor?

Their names should be made known.

Whenever something like this plane crash happens anymore, I have a very hard time believing Obama is not involved.

It is almost a natural reaction based on everything he does and every lie he tells.

I don’t know who really shot this missile off, but Obama and his false flag antics lurk in the back of my mind all the time

Putin/Obama, is there really much difference?

We don’t need to start another war.

Or I should say we would not have needed to if we had done the right thing to begin with.

Putin is not stupid. He will not directly attack the US or US troops.

Had we stationed troops and assets in the Ukraine, Poland, etc, as we have in Germany, Korea, etc., nothing would have happened.

It has been said many times that nature abhors a vacuum.

So do dictators.

Seems to be a pattern here. After the attack on our Consulate in Libya Obama where the Ambassador was killed he had to fly to Las Vegas for a fund raiser. When in Texas he could not take the time to go down to the border because he had a fund raiser to attend to. There were at least two other incidents with the same pattern of behavior.

In the category of historical leaders who have shown the most malevolent contempt for their subjects during a time of crisis, Barack Obama has now surpassed Nero, who had held the title for 2000 years merely for playing his violin while Rome was burning — a simple, one-time event.

In contrast, day after day as crises erupt across the world, Barack Obama is not content to simply turn his back on us and play a musical instrument, he’s constantly in our faces laughing and joking at the news of plane crashes and invasions and running off to indulge his insatiable lust for shaking down fat cats for money.

Hillary Clinton says there’s “growing awareness” that Malaysia Airlines passenger plane was probably shot down by Russian insurgents — but argued that European leaders must “take the lead” on any action if that proves to be the case.

In other words, Hillary says that America is closed for the next two years. Come back later.

Seriously, I think Obama has simply quit. Oh sure he’s still going through the motions, but he’s quit in the same way as a player on a team keeps playing the game, but you can tell he’s just going through the motions on the field.

Having Obama on that scale makes almost anything look cool… at least 20% cooler.

Hopefully not in terms of fundraising, though with what went on in Mississippi, you can never be completely sure.

There is no real, credible opposition to the Caliph in Republican “leadership” today.

It definitely fits his profile. Wouldn't surprise me one bit if the U.S. government supplied the rebels this missile with faulty intelligence that there would be a Russian plane flying over at such and such time. A nice distraction for him from his border fiasco. I swear this damn game is getting old.The media is going out of their way to pin it on Russia, that in and of itself makes me question the whole thing.

I don’t think so.

The rebels, or whatever they are, were all excited and bragged that they had shot down a Ukraine cargo plane.

When they found out they had shot down an airliner, they immediately withdrew all of their bragging comments, or at least that is what I have read.

If what I have read is correct, this would be a realistic chain of emotion: glee over having shot down the enemy...followed by fear of being exposed as inept murderers with resulting international repercussions.

I am not Sherlock. We see this same reaction frequently when people make really bad mistakes.

Friendly fire in the military is an example.

“Putin/Obama, is there really much difference?”

I suspect that Putin probably loves his own country. Obama - not so much. (If you assume that Obama’s own country is the USA)

I suspect that most of the damage done by Putin is directed at other countries, which Putin considers “Russia’s Enemies”. Most of the damage done by Obama is directed at America and Americans, which Obama considers the enemies of ? (whoever owns and operates Obama).
