Obama mourns ESPN death, not general's. EVIL

President Obama immediately issued a statement upon the death of a sportscaster at ESPN over the weekend.

But when terrorists killed Army Major General Harold J. Greene in Kabul, Afghanistan, this summer, the commander-in-chief's silence was so loud that even the Washington Post noticed.

From Dan Lamothe of the Washington Post wrote on August 6, 2014:
Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno released a statement of condolence on Tuesday following the mass shooting that killed Army Maj. Gen. Harold J. Greene and wounded at least 15 others. The soldiers, ambushed at a military training academy west of Kabul, were professionals committed to their jobs, Odierno said, and “it is their service and sacrifice that define us as an Army.”
But the shooting has been met with silence from another member of Greene’s chain of command: President Obama. The commander in chief has said nothing about the incident, leaving it to the Defense Department and his own press secretary, Josh Earnest, to discuss it. Earnest said Tuesday that Obama had called Gen. Joseph F. Dunford, the top U.S. general in Afghanistan, for the latest information, and added that it was a “painful reminder of the service and sacrifice that our men and women in uniform make every day for this country.”
Here is what the president said about the ESPN guy:"I will miss Stuart Scott. Twenty years ago, Stu helped usher in a new way to talk about our favorite teams and the day's best plays. For much of those twenty years, public service and campaigns have kept me from my family -- but wherever I went, I could flip on the TV and Stu and his colleagues on SportCenter were there."

Stuart Scott popularized saying "boo-yah."

Friends, we have an immature president who has skated through life. He watches ESPN all morning. He thinks the death of Stuart Scott at ESPN is so important it is a national tragedy. But President Obama thinks nothing of the death of one of the generals directing his war -- and Obama called the Afghanistan the "real war" throughout his 2008 campaign for the presidency.

Barack Obama is unfit to be president. It is that simple. Thank God that Valerie Jarrett is running the country.


  1. He is the First Jerk, and that he is good at.

  2. Don, there is no Comment Link for the AP and the Hahv-vahd stories.

    AP: Forget it, Jake; it's the AP (h/t Chinatown).

    Hah!-vahd: My Schadenfreude knows NO bounds! My mouth hurts from smiling,

  3. Stuart Scott was another one of those totally interchangeable talking heads on ESPN. I will say he fought his disease valiantly, but unfortunately succumbed at much too young an age. For that his family has my sincere condolences. Still, the choices Obama makes as to which news items and events get his attention, in which he feels the need to intervene, are strange beyond my understanding. It's as if he's desperate to be seen as just one of the guys, not the head of state. Come early 2017, his (and my) wish will come true. The date can't come soon enough.

  4. I guess that I'm one of those people that are not in the know... Before his death, if Scott's name came up in conversation I wouldn't have known who he was...and if it were not for the news about his death, I still wouldn't have known...never heard of the guy! But I do know a lot about the guy in the White House and one of the first things I ever said about him (since he became president) back on March 4, 2009 was, "Obama Hates The Military...hates them with a passion!"
