First, in case you haven’t see it, the video:
Note President Obama’s fixed stare. Note the unblinking eyes. Note how he focuses all of his thoughts and his entire being on the fly that had dared to invade his personal space.
As Russia unilaterally rolled in Georgia, than Senator Obama, was unable to determine the oppressive side and said:
“I think it is important at this point for all sides to show restraint and to stop this armed conflict.”
President Obama and his team were caught surprised and flat footed as North Korea test fired three rockets and test detonated a nuclear device. The best President Obama could muster was this statement:
“We will work with friends and allies to stand up to this behavior.”
In the past week another sham election was held in Iran. At least 7 Iranians have been killed in protests focused on demanding fair elections. Obama’s response:
“It is not productive, given the history of US-Iranian relations to be seen as meddling – the US president, meddling in Iranian elections.”
Three examples where human rights and human lives were/are clearly being destroyed. Yet, President Obama can barely manage a frown of discouragement let alone clear and concise statements in support of those being oppressed. When it comes to human life, President Obama seems unable to recognize evil or attain a level of righteous indignation on behalf of those oppressed or yearning for freedom.
No, no indignation for humans but let a single fly invade his personal space during his time, in his interview and Obama becomes singularly focused like Tiger Woods with an eagle attempt for the win on the final hole of the Masters.
President Bush saw three countries that promoted evil in the world. President Obama only sees a fly.
