Over the last few months, Barack Obama's apathetic, anti-American attitude has been put on display with alarming frequency.
The president's insensitivity to the plight of fellow Americans has become very evident in his words and actions. When a white police sergeant arrested one of Obama's close friends back in July, Obama reacted by calling the officer "stupid" on national television.
While American soldiers die daily in a war that no one wants in Afghanistan, Obama plays golf. In fact, Obama has booked more tee times on golf courses than any other president in recent history.
In the hours following the tragic shootings on a Texas military base that claimed the lives of 13 soldiers, the White House sent word that the president would speak about the incident before a scheduled speech at a Tribal Nations Conference that afternoon.
But when the networks went live to Obama at 5 pm, he seemed totally disconnected and oblivious to the pain the nation was in.
Empathy, compassion and condolences to the families of the fallen and the wounded soldiers rightfully should have been the first words of out of Obama's mouth. Instead, he made light banter and behaved like he was still on the campaign trail.
Obama began by thanking various staff members (expressions of gratitude that could have waited), and he even waved and smiled as he gave a "shout out" to a professor. Come on, a shout out?
In fact, Obama didn't mention the dead and wounded soldiers until 3 minutes into his little speech (part of the speech is cut off in the video).
Taking 3 minutes to make small talk before expressing sympathy for dead soldiers and their families is shockingly callous. It's also interesting that Obama (a closeted muslim) was quick to ask the nation not to jump to conclusions because the shooter is muslim and shouted "Allahu Akbar" before opening fire on military personnel.
Thank you Kool Aid drinkers for voting the first anti-American president into office.
