You can't make this stuff up. On a day when the Middle East is on fire (literally, as Joe Biden would say), the Obama for America - Ohio Facebook page thought it would be a great idea to cheer Obama's faithful fans with this:
Jay-Z and Beyoncé will be meeting up with the President for an evening in NYC sometime soon. And today only, you can enter for a chance to join them: http://OFA.BO/QPRWVi ***
While the families of the four Americans (including two former Navy Seals) killed in Libya this week are in mourning and trying to absorb the horrific details of the apparently brutal murders, Obama is off jet-setting to a fund-raiser in Las Vegas and planning a glitzy meet-up with Jay-Z and Beyonce.
This is one of the most tasteless, insensitive things we've ever seen from this president. And we've seen plenty of them.
Worse, it's another indication that he's focused on the campaign, the whole campaign, and nothing but the campaign. Everything else is a distant second, including the major international crisis that threatens to destabilize the entire Middle East, northern Africa, and perhaps even across central Asia.
I'm afraid for Israel. I'm afraid for our troops who are under the command of this president, who is clearly in over his pay grade. I'm afraid for our country if this president gets another four years. We may not recognize what's left of it after he's through "fundamentally transforming" it. We thought he just meant the economy and health care. While we weren't looking, he has made a shambles of our foreign policy and substantially weakened our longstanding policy of "peace through strength." I hope and pray a President Romney can restore what we've lost.
