President Obama is still so fixated on fundraising and divisive campaign tactics that major tragedies and world crises get ignored.
At 10:40 a.m. Tuesday, the @BarackObama Twitter feed posted a tweet that said "Snack time" along with a photo of two small children picking up apples from a bowl in the Oval Office.
First "Lady" Michelle Obama, who has been on a disgraceful national nanny tour to discuss childhood obesity, is shown sitting with the toddlers in the photo, holding her own apple. In the photo, there is a conspicuous absence of corporate brands or labels. All the food is fruit; no Mars Bars or Snickers or Baby Ruths, thereby illustrating the socialist takeover of the White House.
The president is seen chatting in the background. It looks like he's just been out in the Rose Garden picking apples off the ground.
While the president is tweeting about apples and political fights, the families of seven marines tragically killed Monday in a training exercise are mourning their loss. A genuine Commander-in-Chief would have been flying on his own dime to Nevada to investigate the explosion. But no, he's too preoccupied giving the White House a socialist makeover. I'm embarrassed to admit not only is this the worst president since Jimmy Carter, but he's also leaving the entire population exposed to malfunctioning armaments scattered throughout every part of this country. Mr. President, tear down your socialist façade and repair our military!
