Barack Obama is planning to go to Roseburg, Oregon on Friday in order to use the families of victims and survivors as a photo-op to advance his anti-gun agenda.
Now, they don’t want him there. They don’t want him to use their town or their residents as a political bludgeon.
But of course he’s not going to change his plans.
Do you really think opposition to his politicizing their town is going to stop him?
Americans by a large majority didn’t want Obamacare. He forced it on us anyway.
Americans by a large majority want our immigration laws enforced. He acted unconstitutionally and forced his “executive Amnesty” on us anyway.
Americans by a large majority didn’t want this Iran Deal. He did it anyway.
For over six years Barack Obama has shown nothing but disrespect for the American people.
Why should this be any different?
Remember in August 2011, Obama went to meet the bodies of US servicemen being sent to Dover Air Field? The families of the fallen asked that no photos be taken and no media be there. But the White House photographer was there snapping pictures of Obama saluting the caskets. It made it to the White House website’s “Photo of the Day.” To hell with the request of the families.
This is Obama. He shows nothing but disrespect.
The irony is, when Obama was down in Texas in the summer of 2014 during the illegal alien border surge, reporters asked why he wasn’t going down to the border to see what his policies had wrought. Obama’s response?
“This is not theater. This is a problem. I’m not interested in photo-ops.”
Of course he wasn’t. Not when the problem was caused by him.
But Roseburg, Oregon? He intends to make the most out of those killed or injured whether they want him to or not. He will squeeze all of the political capital out of it he can. It is theater — a stage performance. Photographers in tow to capture every feigned expression of sympathy and concern Obama can contort his face into showing. All under the careful direction of Valerie Jarrett and the White House PR staff.
If they play their cards right a family member will begin to weep just as Obama is beside her so they can capture on film that moment when he embraces her while wiping a tear from his own eye.
Unlike Sandy Hook, the residents of Roseburg don’t want to be used by Obama to advance his radical agenda. They don’t want to be pawns.
An honorable man, a respectful man would see the opposition to his planned trip and cancel it. He would contact the families by phone, express his condolences and leave them the hell alone to grieve in peace.
But Obama is not an honorable man. He is a disrespectful opportunist.
He is a parasite.
He is a ghoul.
And all of us? We the People? We’re just useful props to be utilized and exploited for whatever extremist agenda this soulless man concocts.
