Barack Obama seems able to ignore anything (except maybe a really lousy golf lie in a sand trap) and functions as if only what he desires to have happen actually does happen.
Separated by over four years in time and on two different continents history has repeated itself. That alone is fairly newsworthy, but while our glorious leader seems to be able to insulate himself to almost anything.
Of course his terrific speechwriters can quickly generate their usual vapid remarks for the President to read in soaring tones from TOTUS (the Teleprompter-of-the-United-States) that communicate nothing of value to anyone.
Well, on second thought, Mr. Obama actually does communicate something, just not what he intended to. As with all his vaunted abilities as a speaker, it appears that he sends the same subliminal message in every speech he makes. His tone, posture, phrasing and facial expressions only tell us one thing – he has only contempt for the listeners, and views all of us with distaste and condescension.
Think back to September 9, 2009. Washington, DC. The Tea Parties march, where the official governmentally authorized count of the marchers in the demonstration against our own government numbered a mere several thousand.
On the other hand, in a show solidarity with the ideals that reflect freedom of speech and the press, French citizens as well national leaders from some 40 nations marched with a bit more than one million of their compatriots.
Sounds like a huge difference. In the first case, Obama acted as if he’d never heard of the Tea Party. In the second, he at least admitted that he’d at least heard of the Charlie Hebdo massacre, although he never deigned to join the march that protested the Islamic jihadist slaughter.
You can, at first glance why the president ignored the Tea Party march. After all, a couple of thousand people doesn’t make much of a dent in a nation of over 300 million. But, as is often said, seeing is believing.
A “Few” Thousand in 2009
Over One Million in 2015
See the big difference? Funny, neither can I. Nor can Obama. He saw these two demonstrations exactly the same way – he ignored them both. And since he viewed them both the same way, I hope he realizes that God help us is he ever needs some help from anyone.
He probably isn’t aware that need is never a one-way street. For the sake of our nation, let’s hope he is never forced to learn.
