Twitter erupted with digital eye-rolls at Obama’s curt mention of the ‘tragedy’ that the Ukrainian government quickly called a ‘criminal case’

 

 

Boston Globe reporter Matt Viser captured the online reactions to Obama's statement about the downed airliner

 

 

 

 

” President Barack Obama provoked fury in the U.S. on Thursday by casually devoting less than a minute to the deaths of 295 people aboard a Malaysian airliner, as he began an often jokey 16-minute speech about the need to expand America’s transportation infrastructure.

  There are no confirmed American dead, although it was feared around the time the president made his remarks that as many as 23 U.S. citizens had perished.

  Obama declared in Wilmington, Delaware that ‘it looks like it may be a terrible tragedy,’ but not before enthusiastically declaring that ‘it is wonderful to be back in Delaware.’ “

 

This is what passes for leadership in today’s America … mores the pity .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Obama Blames Five Years of a Bad Economy on “Phony Scandals” and “Distractions”

 

 

” President Obama did his best to shift his administration’s focus to the economy today during a speech at Illinois’ Knox College by blaming the anemic economy on Republicans and “phony scandals.” 

As predicted, Obama gave America the same speech he’s been giving for five years, saying the country needs more infrastructure spending due to crumbling roads and bridges, that we must fight poverty, that CEOs are making too much money while the poor suffer etc. He even went so far as to tout “saving the auto industry” one week after Detroit filed for bankruptcy.
