    'It looks like it may be a terrible tragedy': Obama sparks anger with 40-second mention of Malaysian plane crash that killed 23 Americans before transportation speech

    Barack Obama provoked fury in the U.S. by casually devoting mere moments to the deaths of 295 people aboard a Malaysian airliner on Thursday in Wilmington, Delaware, and then launching into jokes and his prepared remarks on the need to expand America's transportation infrastructure.

    "Looks like it may be a terrible tragedy ... " [​IMG]

    According to Fox, CBS, Reuters and other reports, 280 passengers and 15 crewman died. Among them, 23 Americans. A missile system that is too sophisticated for common run-of-the-mill terrorist/separatist rebels to use is the culprit in the shoot-down, pointing to training by the Russians or direct Russian involvement in the shoot-down.

    Tell me, Mr. President, what is it that would tell us it is definitely a tragedy?

    Doesn't surprise me.

    Obama is amazingly self centered and lacking empathy, unless he can make use of it politically.

    His actions fit his personality.

    YOu know why Obama "yuks" it up in a time like this? Because he does not care. It is not part of his social agenda, it is far away, it is a distraction from what he really wants to focus on and he is too self centered.

    He just does not care one iota.

    Can't WAIT for this clown and his group (Biden, Holder, Jarrett, Kerry) to be GONE.

    Not that I'm overly fond of the Repugnicans, I just want Holder, Biden and Kerry and Hillary NOT in power for a while.

    Obama does not care. Period. Worst president in my lifetime. I can't BELIEVE this nation elected him for a second term. He is a man of no character.

    Do you remember the funeral of
    Sec Brown - back about 1996 - at least President Clinton pretended to be concerned.

    Obama is just a middle man for the elite he serves.

    Same as next guy or gal in the WH will be.

    The people with all the money rule America. Obama is just their waterboy.

    For this reason alone I feel our country is doomed!!

    Either the populace is too stupid for us to survive, OR the dims have such control over the election process that legitimate citizens votes don't matter - (or both)

    Either way, I figure we are snookered!!!:BangHead::BangHead:

    I don't believe for a minute he won the election. He stole it with fake votes from dead people and illegals. There have been more than one case where this was shown to have happened during elections. The process is rigged and frankly, I doubt our votes even matter anymore. They are probably just a formality.

    Right but I'm sure the election of 2000 in Florida was totally won fair and sqaure by Bush the Lesser.

    Also the 23 Americans is a myth: http://www.newrepublic.com/article/118762/false-report-23-americans-mh17-used-right-attack-obama

    Obama proved himself to be a narcissistic, stone cold hater of America.

    I remember it well. In that way , Obama and Slick Willie are a lot alike.

    Politics drives everything. Human tragedy always takes a back seat.

    Yes. "How can Bill or Obama milk it?" That's my impression of BOTH of these guys.
