It's Not Theatre

Minutes after emitting some non-committal bureaucrat BS in response to the beheading of American James Foley US President Barack Obama hit the golf course (again).  Someone took this photo:

Finally, three weeks after this atrocity, Obama went on NBC (his biggest cheerleaders) and had this to say:

"Part of this job is also the theater of it. I should have anticipated the optics of playing golf."

The optics?  No, you inhuman monster, it's not theatrics when people are outraged or saddened by someone's untimely death.  James Foley's friends and parents weren't happily laughing after he was killed. And it's not because they appreciated "the theatrics" of the moment, it's because they were feeling honest grief.

Continuing to speak about "theatrics" Obama said: "Well, it's not something that always comes naturally to me. But it matters. And I'm mindful of that."

This just shows how completely disconnected from the human race our President really is.  He just doesn't get that other people aren't acting sad about things like this.  He can't imagine that they genuinely are feeling that emotion.

It's so ironic that the liberals, the people who so prize feeling over thinking, would gift us with this man who is apparently incapable not only of feeling these emotions, but also incapable of believing that anyone else feels them.

The photo above tells us what he really felt about the brutal execution of an American: It was hilarious.
