The President graced us with with a speech tonight that will make us forget the Gettysburg address, will make us forget "We have nothing to fear but fear itself", make us forget "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country".
Well, not forget, exactly. But, being in a coma is almost like forgetting, isn't it? Within minutes of the people who actually risked their lives and were responsible for capturing the bombing suspect ending their press conference, Barry sprinted to the sound of the microphones and cameras to insert himself into the spotlight before it faded. I suppose he could have called the first responders and FBI, and congratulated them personally for a job well done... if it had been about them. But, no one would have seen him do that. I suppose he could have invited them up to the White House for a small ceremony, or some random golf course for a round of golf. But, not as many people would be paying attention then. President Me couldn't bear the thought of passing up the opportunity to put his face in front of the American people one more time.
Hope he thinks it was worth it. Watch, or watch again the colorless, bland and boring laundry list of people dying, losing their homes and being maimed for life, and tell me if the president reeks with sincerity or just reeks?
The saying is "always leave them wanting more", Barry. Not "always leave them wanting you to leave."
Update: And here I thought it was just me! "Robotic, Emotionless President Obama Gets Boston Victim’s Name Wrong" It's "Lu Lingzi", not "Ling Su Lu".
