Mark Levin On Obama: “This Man Is A Disgrace”
What has Mark Levin so vexed? We pretty much know that Obama is a disgrace in general. Here’s in specific
(The Blaze) Conservative radio host Mark Levin on Tuesday said he is “ashamed and disgusted” that President Barack Obama plans to hit a fundraiser on Wednesday, hours after attending a memorial service to honor the slain military heroes who were killed in the recent Fort Hood shooting.
“I want to tell you something that I’m ashamed of and disgusted about,” Levin began. “This is just so appalling.”
He explained that, according to the schedule on the White House website, Obama and the first lady leave at 9:05 a.m. on Wednesday and arrive in Killeen, Texas, at around 11:30 a.m. CT.
The president and Michelle Obama will attend the Fort Hood memorial service on Wednesday and then take off for a Democratic National Committee fundraising event about an hour and a half later. The fundraiser reportedly starts at 5 p.m. CT.
The Associated Press reportedly obtained an invitation to the April 9 event “where tickets start at $16,200 a person and go up to $64,800 for a couple.” Obama is expected to be joined by Sens. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).
After that fundraiser, Obama will then go to a Democrat dinner event, which means he will spend more time at partisan fundraising events than at Ft. Hood.
“The president is actually spending more time fundraising in Texas than honoring those who were murdered at Fort Hood at the memorial ceremony,” Levin said, clearly angry but speaking with a somber tone. “I’m sorry ladies and gentlemen, I believe this man is a disgrace.”
“I don’t know how you leave such a solemn event and then within hours you’re glad-handing you’re fundraising as if you can turn it off and turn it on,” he continued. “No, I’m sorry, that’s a disgrace and he’s a disgrace.”
As one of the commenters notes
If he didn’t have to justify the travel he would have skipped the event at Fort Hood.
Making an official stop at Ft. Hood allows Obama to only pay for the short trip from Ft. Hood to the fundraiser, rather than the full trip to Texas, per campaign laws.
Let’s not forget that Obama hit the campaign trail the day after 4 Americans, including our Ambassador, were murdered by Islamic jihadis in Benghazi, along with all the US compounds attacked on September 11, 2012.
