This national embarrassment and his scowling wife sat down with the slobs from The View Monday while the mideast burns and his hapless Secretary of State was left to meet with world leaders.
Clearly he’s putting himself and his own ambitions ahead of America’s best interests.
But House Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor (R0-Va.) slammed Obama’s decision to go on “The View” as a “lack of willingness to lead in times of trouble,” and said there was a “continued pattern of throwing Israel under the bus.”
Among those Obama won’t be meeting is Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who arrives in New York on Thursday. The White House declined Netanyahu’s request to meet, claiming their schedules didn’t line up.
Six weeks left, folks, to correct this mistake. Do we really want four more years of this preening narcissist representing us around the world?
Meanwhile, Jake Tapper of ABC News is equally flummoxed as to Obama’s priorities.
Perhaps we can nominate Obama for a Profiles in Cowardice award.
Analysts said the president may be skipping meetings with other leaders to avoid any potential embarrassments just six weeks out from Election Day, particularly at a time of international tensions over unrest in the Middle East and the financial instability of the European Union. Even if the meetings went well, it’s not clear Obama would get much credit from voters, who are focused far more on their own economic concerns than foreign affairs.
