How out of touch is Barack Obama? That is a serious question, and I’m not sure of the answer. Everyone heard Biden’s comment last week, which was to get a cheap laugh while making a point. But Obama has his own “you didn’t build that”, among other comments like “the private sector is doing fine”. So it does indicate he is on a different plane than the American people. Seeing how he hops from fundraiser to fundraiser with celebs and the wealthy Hollywood contingent to feed his campaign. When he does speak off the cuff, or unattached to the teleprompter, he often sounds disconnected and other times aloof .
After all, the unemployment rate has even ticked up. Energy prices have skyrocketed under his watch. Scandals surround the administration from leaks to Fast and Furious. Solyndra-gate and the list is growing. The economy is on life support, barely breathing. We see the results and consequences of a long recession on his watch. And then he sounds so condescending talking about business owners. He throws around his rich should pay their fair share mantra. At the same time he says “the private sector is doing fine.” Whenever his statements are challenged, he says his words were taken out of context. This has been his response since 08 that people have taken his words out of context.
But look at the “context” that he’s making these statements: the economy on the precipice of a cliff – jobs being America’s number one concern along with the economy. And he’s out making statements like that. That “context”, of his statements, tells us a lot about Obama. Couple that with Biden’s poor attempt to pander and make cheap jokes. An off comment, or out of touch?
But it doesn’t stop there. Feeling a little heat in the campaign he does a flurry of friendly interviews. So he has to make his case and his campaign never ends. Okay. But look at the interviews he does, being asked what his favorite Mexican food is? Americans are so curious about that. Nothing else to ask, no other questions? Yet he hasn’t and will not have a press conference, even drawing complaints from the WH press pool. Then, when asked in an interview, why is it naturally a question about his workout music genre, to which he rattles off a list as if prepared?
No, president Obama, Americans are more concerned about “context” of the country and the condition of the economy, and their fears about the expense and effects of ObamaCare, and the context of his dismal record. That is the context of his remarks. So don’t lecture people on “context”. His statements are out of context and out of touch.
Or while he goes to play his 120 rounds of golf – and he must have improved as president with all that practice. It seems its Obama taking things out of the context of his failed record. Ignoring the context of a hurting country while he defiantly plays class warfare or hounds Republicans about Romney’s tax records. Does America care about Romney’s tax records?
Yet while Obama campaigns around the country, he repeatedly mentions his scholarships and their role in his “career” (for lack of better word). So where did these scholarships come from that were so important and why did he have to seal them off? What is there to hide? He demands Romney put out his tax records. He has mentioned the scholarships several times making them central to his campaign. But he won’t even tell us the source of those scholarships. Then he lectures us on context. Why doesn’t Obama put it in context for us?
What about the context? Why does he ignore and take everything out of context… America’s context? The context of the will of the people. The problems we face, his failed policies. Americans care about context. That context is everything.
RNC says Obama is doing softball interviews
His last formal White House press conference was March 6.
I’d like to know why he insists on taking America out of context?
