At least Obama isn’t letting the escalating terror war spoil his social life:
In Brussels police are still desperately hunting a dangerous terrorist after he fled a triple-suicide bombing in the city that left 34 dead, as officials search for news on U.S. citizens who went missing during the attack and medics tend to nine more Americans lying wounded in hospitals.
Meanwhile in Buenos Aires President Barack Obama was dancing the night away with wife Michelle at a glitzy state dinner alongside Argentine President Mauricio Macri and his first lady Juliana Awada as part of a two-day state visit.
Look what fun he had — hey, that doesn’t look like Michelle:
Republican strategist Ana Navarro doesn’t think much of the optics:
‘I think the entire thing is horrible,’ she told CNN’s John Berman. ‘It reminded me of when he went golfing after James Foley’s head was cut off.’
In August 2014, ISIS released a video showing journalist Foley being decapitated. Obama gave a statement and then went back to playing golf.
Speaking of bad optics, in the immediate aftermath of the attack on Brussels, Obama whiled away time at a ballgame with a brutal communist dictator.
Navarro wasn’t keen on Obama’s trip to Cuba to begin with, but the president’s ‘eating peanuts and going to the baseball game like he was at Walt Disney World’ during ‘a day of grief for the entire world’ just rubbed more salt on the wound.
In lieu of a more serious response,
Obama said he will be sending John Kerry to Brussels on Friday to express his condolences on behalf of the American people and stand in solidarity with Belgium.
Maybe Hanoi John will bring a worn-out folk singer to croon, “You’ve got a friend,” like he did when he went to Paris to make up for Obama boycotting the event that drew leaders from all over the world to show solidarity following another Islamic terror attack.
Despite the dancing and the ballgames, Obama is sufficiently engaged to denounce his political opponents for wanting to do something about the terror threat. Regarding Ted Cruz’s call to increase surveillance of communities that spawn terrorism,
Obama said yesterday that surveillance of Muslim communities to prevent terror attacks is not only ‘wrong’ and ‘un-American,’ it makes ‘absolutely no sense.’
Ironically, Obama sneered that Cruz’s suggestion reminds him of the police state tactics employed by the communists he has been canoodling with in Cuba.
He denounced Cruz’s suggestion that ISIS be targeted by a relatively serious bombing campaign as “inhumane.” After dismissing the Islamic State as a serious threat, he characteristically praised Islam as “one of the world’s great religions.”
It isn’t hard to see why ISIS has flourished after coming into being during his administration.
