In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Obama Phones it In, Poorly

President Obama failed to even call Florida Gov. Rick Scott in the aftermath of the Orlando shootings. But this should come as no surprise, as I wrote in a piece running today in LifeZette:

Whether it comes to his policies or his use of the phone, Obama, it seems, always makes the wrong call.

Last July, another Islamist terrorist killed four Marines and mortally wounded a Navy sailor in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Cathy Wells, the mother of one of the deceased, 21-year-old Marine Lance Cpl. Skip Wells, was asked on Fox News’ “Hannity” days later whether she had heard from Obama. “No,” she said, though it didn’t faze this brave woman.

“He died for his country, doing what he loved for the love of his country and for his family,” she said. Hannity, for his part, “lamented that the White House went out of its way to put up rainbow-colored lights on the day of the recent Supreme Court ruling in favor of gay marriage, yet cannot pick up the phone to call the five grieving military families,” Fox reported.

Indeed, Obama bothered to make a phone call the day the ruling came down. The president, who just a few years back vocally opposed gay marriage, telephoned the lead plaintiff in the case, Jim Obergefell.

  1. He called the NBA’s first gay player, Jason Collins, after he came out. He was also quick to reach out to “Clock Boy” – inviting him to the White House.


  2. I dont see you guys in this “WH press corps” ever really challenging/questioning who Obama calls out of ‘sympathy/concern’…

  3. ..and what the SamHill could he possibly say to the Gov of Florida about the massacre of 49 gays and the shooting of dozens more by a member of the Religion of Peace he admires that would be helpful?
    I’m in the Don’t Call Us/We’ll Call You group when it comes to the phony concern from anyone in the Obama regime.
