Americans are hurting bad while the President parties and plays!


Just how out of touch is President Obama?

Just how out of touch is President Obama with the trials and tribulations of his loyal subjects?

Just how out of touch is President Obama? Could this be another one of those Obama administration games that have sprouted up through the years, like that oldie but goodie called Barack's Bullshit Bingo (speech play-along game).

Unfortunately this is no game but the current reality of the American people.

President Obama just doesn't seem to understand that there are some points in time when, like it or not, he needs to put on the pretense of caring about the people who he leads.

1) Pretend that he understands the state of the US economy, the fact that over 40 million Americans are on food stamps, that the unemployment rate is 9.1% and that jobs are nowhere to be found.

In this case, although a 50th birthday only comes around once in a lifetime, party a little less and maybe a little further under the radar. Perhaps a $30,000 a plate fundraiser with all of the extras being paid by the taxpayers was not the best idea!

2) Everyone needs an outlet to blow off a little steam, particularly if you are the leader of the free world.

But such a leader needs to understand when serious circumstances such as the mass killing of soldiers in Afghanistan, downgrading of the US debt rating and the potential for two of the larger economies in the EU, Italy and Spain, to collapse, might call for some indoor recreation such as bowling or reading a book.

There are those times when a president needs to at least appear presidential! The sight of President Obama playing yet another round of golf is tough to take!

Summary

If the one tangible goal of President Obama for his first term is being reelected to a second term, he needs to in some way make the American people believe, I mean really believe, that he wants the United States to remain the greatest country on earth.

I believe this will be extremely difficult for him to pull off as in my mind his actual goal is the exact opposite.
