Just when I wonder if our president can stoop any lower, what happens? He stoops lower. Thursday was a double header:
While the bodies were still warm, he immediately dug into his basket of talking points and called for more gun control after the tragic mass murders at Umpqua Community College in Oregon. That quote from Rahm Emanuel comes to mind: “You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” Saul Alinsky would be proud.
And at the UN, Obama sent his third string team to attend Prime Minister Netanyahu’s epic UN Speech. You see, Secretary of State John Kerry and UN Ambassador Susan Power had other, more important plans; they were video conferencing with the President at the same time. How convenient!
Note that when the camera turns to the back-benchers he sent to represent us at Natanyahu’s speech, that they are silent and lifeless while everyone else is applauding!
