• A Reported 23 Americans Were Killed In The Shot Down Malaysian Airlines Flight, So What Did Obama Do Today?

    A Malaysian airliner was shot down over Ukraine on Thursday, killing all 295 aboard. The flight manifest reportedly included the names of 23 Americans

    With the current crisis on our southern border along with the countless ongoing scandals, you’d think Obama would at least pretend to be a competent, confidant leader.

    So exactly where was the President of the United States of America when the world was on fire?

    He was out to lunch, literally.

    And to make matters worse (yes, that’s possible), Obama is attending not one but two fundraisers tonight.

    That’s right. Just hours after Obama had lunch with Tanei Benjamin–a single mother struggling to pay her bills–he flew across the country, burning God knows how much fossil fuel, all so he can party in the Big Apple at two $30,000-a-plate fundraisers with the one percent.

    As NRO’s Jim Geraghty points out, “This is the president who didn’t address the country for three days after the attempted bombing of an airliner over Detroit on Christmas Day 2009, who gave a “shout-out” to an audience member moments before his first comments on the Fort Hood shooting, and who attended a campaign rally on September 12, 2012, when most Americans awoke to the news of the murder of four Americans in a terror attack in Benghazi, Libya.”

    Obama didn’t even know enough about the downed Malaysian airliner when he spoke about it earlier. He said it “may be a terrible tragedy.”

    By the time Obama made that idiotic remark, it had already been reported that the plane was intentionally shot down. It’s a tragedy if the plane was struck by lightening. Being hit by a missile and falling out of the sky is closer to an act of war than it is to a tragedy.

    But perhaps Obama would’ve known that if he hadn’t waited several hours after the incident to call Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko and Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak.
