Self-Centered, Classless Obama

Self-Centered, Classless Obama

Michelle Bachman rendered her opinion of the President in a Tweet that called him “self-centered and classless.” He is skipping Nancy Reagan’s funeral on Saturday to be the keynote speaker at a Song/Film/Technology festival in Texas called “South by Southwest.” Michelle Obama will attend the funeral, according to the White House.

 

“Through the examples she set both during her time in the White House and beyond, Nancy Reagan reminded us of the importance of women’s leadership at every level of our society.”  Michelle Obama

Does that mean Michelle won’t exhibit those horrific facial expressions at Mrs. Reagan’s funeral? We’ll see.

Taking heat

The President has taken a lot of heat over his tenure as President, because his attendance at Conservative funerals is sparse. He didn’t attend Justice Antonin Scalia’s funeral, a man arguably one of the greatest Conservative minds in America.

He went to Nelson Mandela’s funeral in Africa because he got to put on a show by speaking there. Nelson Mandela was an avowed Communist. And don’t forget the big selfie party he had with Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt while the event was taking place. That was classy too.

The Nelson Mandela funeral

He did attend the funeral of South Carolina Senator Clementa Pinckney, who was murdered in Charleston. He did attend the funeral of Joe Biden’s son Beau.  He was asked to speak at those services. Hmmmm.

He snubbed the funeral of former British Prime Minster Margaret Thatcher, but sent a representative. She was a head of state. No senior officials. Probably no one asked him to say a few words.

He also did not go to France after the Charlie Hebdo Terror attacks, and neither did Biden. Too busy. No senior officials.

He sent a representative to the funeral of Michael Brown of Ferguson riot fame, and Freddie Gray, the man who died in police custody in Baltimore (more riots). (We have to ask why).

He attended the funerals of Senator Robert Byrd (oh wait, a recruiter for the Klu Klux Klan- that was probably a slip up).

He attended the funeral of former Democratic House Speaker Tom Foley.

He did not attend nor send a representative to the funeral of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle. Crickets on that one. No senior officials.

He sent a representative to the funeral of Major General Harold Greene, killed in Afghanistan. No senior officials.

Can’t go to them all…but…

A President can’t attend every high profile funeral or he’d never get any work done. Wait…Obama  has failed to cancel golfing trips for national crises. He has taken 8 vacations that have cost taxpayers millions of dollars.

And we can’t wait to see the expression on Michelle’s face at Nancy Reagan’s funeral. It promises to be classic.

Yep, Michelle Bachman is correct: self-centered and classless.
