Merely disagreeing with one’s political enemies is not enough for many Progressives. They are often compelled to outright, red-faced, raging, spiting hatred, and at the most inappropriate and classless times, mocking. The untimely and unexpected death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia surely qualifies as such a time. And where “classless” is the operative descriptor, who better than President Obama, as reported by inforwars:
During his National Governors Association speech Monday, President Obama joked there was a lot to get done during his final days in office, including ‘appointing judges.’
For some presidents, such a comment might be taken as self-deprecating humor. For Mr. Obama, however, it is mean-spirited and mocking rhetoric, particularly considering Mr. Obama’s recent actions and official statements. Remember, Justice Scalia’s body was hardly cold when Mr. Obama was already lecturing the Congress and nation on their constitutional obligations.
Some of you may be in the final year of your term, working as hard as you can to get as much done as possible for the folks you represent, fixing roads, educating our children, helping people retrain, appointing judges, the usual stuff,’ the president jested, as the crowd in attendance burst into laughter.
Consider this example of class, and bipartisan sensitivity and inclusiveness, from the man who recently claimed he regretted that he did not try to engage with Republicans:
Last week, the president was criticized after it was announced he would not be attending the funeral of Associate Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
Obama was further lambasted when it was reported he spent less than two minutes paying his respects to Justice Scalia during the Saturday service at the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C.
Less than two minutes? Well, he’s the POTUS. He’s very busy, you know, as I explained in this article:
Notice that on the four days of that week when he apparently did some small amount of work—as in actually having something to do from time to time on his official schedule–nothing began earlier than 0930. Notice too that he appears to knock off for the day at around 1600, and on Friday, apparently right after lunch [one can only hope he can work while chewing; he doesn’t appear to do it at any other time].
But this is only one example from one source—OK, the source is actually the White House, but still—so perhaps I’m not being fair.
I’m sure he was planning a new reset, drawing a new red line, or determining best how to give away the farm on a new nuclear deal with a despotic regime that wants to kill us all. I’m sure he gave Justice Scalia and his family all the recognition–and time–he could fit into his grueling schedule.
