Profiles in Leadership … President Obama Skipped Mississippi Gulf Memorial Service to Attend Fundraiser for Barbara Boxer


Barack Hussein Obama, the (fill in the blank) ________ in Chief looks like he might need to kick his own “ASS”.

Talk about a lack of leadership and an I do not care attitude. Normally we refer to these Obama moments as “lost in smallness;” however, in this case he is not lost … he is AWOL!



Miss a fund raiser for a memorial service, are you crazy …next thing Americans will expect me to lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetary on Memorial Day.

More Barack Obama ”Change” you can believe in.  We have been told that Obama’s on it and Obama thinks about the BP Gulf oil spill morning, noon and night. Barack Hussein Obama has had his people on the pol spill crisis since day one and Obama is in charge. The real question appears to be not if his daughters have asked him if he has plugged the hole daddy, but rather what fund raiser he has gone to, instead.

Who knew when Obama said he was on it that he was referring to attending a fund raiser for embattled California Democrat US Senator Barbara Boxer. That is correct, according the official President “I care about the people affected by the Gulf BP oil spill” schedule, President Obama did not attend the May 25 memorial service in Jackson, MS for the workers who died in the Deepwater Horizon explosion. Instead Barack Hussein Obama had much important things to do. Barack Obama went to a fundraiser for Senator Barbara Boxer, D-California, in San Francisco, CA instead.

At Thursday’s White House briefing, Press Secretary Robert Gibbs was asked why Obama did not attend the service. The president’s spokesman answered, “I’d have to look at the schedule. I don’t know the answer.”

CNN examined the president’s schedule for that day, and according to it, the president left the White House at 2:55 p.m. EST en route to Andrews Air Force Base for the cross-country flight to the San Francisco fundraiser.

A Jackson source in possession of the memorial service program told CNN that the service began at 2:00 pm EST and lasted “more than an hour and a half” – putting the president in transit to the fundraiser during the second half of the memorial service

Glad to see the President has his priorities straight, after all … memorial service, fund raiser, memorial service, fund raiser … What is a President to do? For all the President’s political postering regarding his reaction and leadership with the BP oil spill disaster, is it any wonder why Americans are giving Obama an “F“?

James Carville is 100% correct, “… administration’s response to the spill has been “lackadaisical” and that Obama was “naive” …” The LEFT & RIGHT have been equally fed up with Obama’s handling of the BP oil spill crisis namely because he has shown no leadership. How can any President claim they care when they cannot even be bothered to go to a Memorial service for individuals who died during the initial Deepwater Horizon explosion? MSNBC’s Chris Matthews was correctas well, this is Obama’s Iranian hostage crisis not Hurricane Katrina … ”

“This is more important than a Presidency. This President has not acted that way. He has not acted like this is more important than some thing else like a fund raiser in California or an interview about basketball with Marv Albert. He doesn’t seem to be taking ownership. Presidents must seize control when some thing like this happens. I think this is more like the Iranian hostage crisis that brought down Jimmy Carter than Katrina … This is big time and he has not acted like it’s big time.”

After all Obama’s attempts at pretending he is a leader and has been on the oil pill crisis since the outset, Weasil Zippers says it best in the title of their post. This President either just does not get it or just does not care. Politics before “WE THE PEOPLE” … how is that “Hopey, Changey” stuff working out for you America?

      Got it wrong on day one. BS from BO to get elected.
      I have NO HOPE for BO and see no change!

      Barry does not know how to behave. He is a hidden muslim who hates the United States and its people. He takes every opportunity to show this dislike.

      I really hope he hasn’t found any “ass to kick” because I saw him throw out a first pitch and he will certainly break his neck. Jerry Lewis Nutty Professor type stuff

      As if it wasn’t bad enough already, in the middle of all the Obama praise for helping make the Boxer fund raiser be such a huge success, lies this headline…

      Obama pleads for $50 billion in state, local aid
      Says money is needed to avoid ‘layoffs of teachers, police and firefighters’


    5. Its Me on June 12th, 2010 11:42 pm

      He is going down in history as the biggest goof this country has ever known. But then again he may have his thugs write history different.

    6. john alonso on June 13th, 2010 12:13 am

      BA achieved more in 1 year then Bush in 8 so please i know i am talking on a extreme right site so its only gone have hate,but i hope even on this site there is freedom of speech…The entire world is still paying for what Bush did destroy,and will for decades to come…ooo i dont say BA dont make mistakes but i am sure all the posters here never did make mistakes after all they are UBERMENSH..a rare species only been found in extreme right circles.

    7. rightknight on June 13th, 2010 12:38 am

      Barry Soetoro’s handlers must be happy with the unrest
      that their scheduling is creating. Reasonable People are
      extremely frustrated at the affronts to common sense being
      committed by our little king. Division rather than cohesion
      is apparently their goal. Is this American, is this presidential?

    8. dawg1948 on June 13th, 2010 12:59 am

      #6 John Alonso,

      What the HELL are you talking about? You make no sense and apparently you are not too bright.

    9. dena@israel on June 13th, 2010 1:44 am

      it seems obama knows *who’s ass to kick*. with all his *changes* and *transparenty* he never takes responsibility for his actions.

      #6 You are absolutely correct in your right to Freedom of Speech. Now, that we have that out of the way would you care to back up your statement with some facts? I’m assuming that BA is actually BO as in Barrack Obama, not sure who BA is.

      Would you please tell all of us extreme right haters as you call us what he has achieved?

      Oh and I think you mean ubermensch, and I’m sure no one here has made those claims. I do believe though that many Obama supports have said that about your boy.

      So please John Alonso, explain to us how Obama has achieved more in one year than Bush did in 8. Oh, did you mean the raising of the national debt? I agree with you there.

    13. NewGirlBoston on June 13th, 2010 5:52 am

      Interesting story. Was at Car Dealership this weekend, an WWII Old Timer actually was assisting me and we began to chat. Topics turned to Politics, and the god awful mess our Country is in currently.

      Plain and simple, this Veteran I thought summed it up nicely. He’s certainly been around a lot longer than me, so I respect his wisdom.

      “You know, I’ve been around a long time and lived through many different Presidents in office. It’s scary, because Obama just doesn’t know what the hell he is doing”.

      And there you have it.

    14. sherry gibbs on June 13th, 2010 6:02 am

      BO can and HAS made mistakes. I just hope they are not going to be mistakes that affect America for decades to come. He needs advisors…maybe he has advisors and they are just as inept as he is though. We havent seen anything yet…just wait till the Bush tax cuts end.

    15. O'Bomber on June 13th, 2010 6:21 am

      Hey alonso, why don’t you take a long walk off a short pier, preferably where there’s plenty of BP oil.

      You’re right in one sense: O’Bummer did “achieve more [irreparable damage to our country] then Bush in 8…”

      Go back to KOS or the rock you came out from under.

    16. NewGirlBoston on June 13th, 2010 6:50 am

      #6-John Alonso—-Of course your right to Freedom of Speech is upheld on this website. While it is a private domain, just by virtue of the fact that you are posting here at your own will is proof of that.

      Keep in mind, while some may not agree with some of your views or opinions- you are still entitled to express them freely or as the Editor or Blog Moderator sees fit to publish.


    17. Inge on June 13th, 2010 7:07 am

      to John Alonso:

      Before you use the word ‘Ubermensch”, I would hope that you understand the meaning, and the german language. “Ubermensch” means being above, and beyond human.
      Nobody on this site has ever claimed to be ‘above’ humanity; there’s only above, and it is the ‘Almighty God’.
      The next time before your attempt to sound ‘smart’ study your use of words.

    18. nun on June 13th, 2010 7:25 am

      You shall be judged by your deeds and not your words.

      BO — you have been measured, you have been judged, and you are officially a failure.

    19. nurturer on June 13th, 2010 7:33 am

      15% approval rating by 2012. Maybe less. He’ll go down as the absolute worst President ever.

    20. Its Me on June 13th, 2010 7:39 am

      #6 Bringing up Bush again. Are you not beating a dead horse? I didnt have much respect for Bush either but there is no comparison between Bush and BO.

    21. barbreee on June 13th, 2010 8:27 am

      Last night, I paged all the way back to the picture of BO, of the caption contest right after he was elected. It took awhile, but I finally got there. My caption to his Hawaii vacation picture was “I wonder if it’s too late to give the job back”. He is in over his head, and it shows in the pictures taken of him now. Saw a great bumper sticker yesterday. It was “WWRRD”, or, what would Ronald Reagan do? He would not bow, he would not apologize, he would not belittle America in the eyes of the world. And he would not experiment with our tax dollars.

    22. Brenda on June 13th, 2010 9:35 am

      I bet I could whip Obambi’s butt. I’m not very big, but I’m not full of hot air and lies either. He don’t have it in him, that’s obvious. Between Kerry pretending to be a war hero and Clinton being sure to skirt his duties, the left settles on a thug instead? Geez.

    23. paula on June 13th, 2010 11:23 am

      Whether or not people liked Bush, at least he tried to keep America safe from more terrorist attacks. Obama is a FOOL! He doesn’t seem to be able to understand how Americans think, act or feel. He is letting us see who he really is and yet we do nothing except shake our heads in wonder.

    24. john alonso on June 13th, 2010 2:40 pm

      I could answer some questions but its just not gone help in my country they say…why use a candle and glasses if the owl dont wana see… i am sure you have simular proverb…
      Brenda with your new Smith&wesson i am sure you can whip his ass!!Godfearing people dont support wars arent racists dont supprt torturing dont wish others death etc. etc. i could go on forever but as said it not gone help…mods please ban my IP from this site( i cant help myself to come back)before i gone start to think that all U.S citizens are brainless.God bless America and this is no sarcasm.
      SM: You can’t help from coming back as you know we are correct. Sorry, but God fearing people can most certainly do exactly what you say they can’t do. Alot you know about religion and God. If you knew anything about what you are talking about, then you would know that people are flawed. we are not perfect … therefore we could wish ill upon another, especially when they are a raping, robbing, murderous animal.

      Vengence is mine say the Lord and it looks like he is having his right now with Joran Van der Sloot.

    25. john alonso on June 13th, 2010 4:39 pm

      SM. normaly i dont post on forums like this but when i see unbelieveble stupidity i cant help myself to critic and not because this site is about the truth,at first i thought this was a site to imform the public about crimes but its just a propaganda machine to stirr up the public and anybody with little sence will agree …isnt this a passage from the new testament?…”He who is without sins throw the first stone!!!” Alot of stones are thrown by the Godfearing people here all without sins i am sure.FYI i am buddhist but i did read the new and old testament multiple times so i think i know a little about your religion.

    26. Greg the Mongoose on June 13th, 2010 4:55 pm

      #25 john alonso if people do not agree with YOU? Its stupidity? Get over yourself. Calling others names shows your not a buddhist. If you ever wish to reach “enlightenment” open your heart and mind. Instead of closing your mind and attacking others.

    27. Michelle on June 13th, 2010 7:08 pm

      Well John Alonso is you expect to be heard and taken seriously then why don’t you answer my question? What exactly has Obama accomplished? How is he a better President than Bush? (since you brought it up) Can you actually debate the issues or just post a bunch of nonsensical gibberish?

      It also urks me that people like you think just because you have read the Bible a few times you can tell us what we think & believe. As stated earlier, NO ONE on this website has claimed to be God-Like or perfect. We are all sinners and are allowed to discuss the facts of what this President is or is not doing without being called judgmental. Only God can judge as he is creator of all. So once again I ask you, do you care to debate the issues or continue your little childish games?

      BTW, I happen to be proud of my Christianity. I am a God-Fearing, Bible toting, Conservative and I don’t like where our Country is headed and I’m exercising my 1st Amendment Rights on this blog. You don’t have to agree with us and we don’t have to agree with you but there is no need for insults and name calling.

      You have shown your true colors by coming on this blog and assuming we are all right wing haters because we don’t agree with Obama’s policies and lack of leadership but you still haven’t backed up your claims with any facts. There is no propaganda here sir, only hard-working, tax paying Americans expressing their concerns over the Marxist/communist agenda of Mr. Barrack Obama.

      It’s not our fault that he sucks as a leader. That he will go down in History as the worst President evah!

    28. john alonso on June 14th, 2010 12:45 am

      @michelle…ofcourse its a mistake of me to generalise or namecalling and sorry for that, my opinion of whats the majority of people posting here and the website is not only based on this thread only,this thread is actulay the one where i shouldent have posted that kind of comment.

      The fact that people think that socialist and communist are related is funny what are you scrared of isnt it normal in a 1st world country that everybody should be able to get medical attention of the same level(just to name something)or is healthcare only for the elite who are able to take expensive assurance just like it is in 3th worldcountry’s like mine..indeed no healtcare in my country as well and i shouldent complain because i can easy pay those assurances.

      Your president toke over in the worst possible time a time of huge international crisis not exactly the best time to start your job so dont blame the man he is spending huge amounts of money to trying to create jobs and save company’s…the EU is doing the same altough nobody blames them for doing.

      International he brought some kind of rest the rest that Bush disturbed because of his hunger for war and lack of brains.

      That you care you country is great and normal but dont be afraid of BO being a communist you mixing things up miss. Most western country’s did or do have socialist goverments for ages and they do just fine,the elite is never happy with them,but if you an average hardworking citizen you really overreact and will benefit from this in the long run,time will show who is right or wrong but one thing i know alredy it will be very very hard to win the contest worst president ever just because Bush did do his best to make sure nobody could take away that honor from him.

    29. john alonso on June 14th, 2010 3:25 am

      @Michelle i did give you some points and even an appologizy but its not posted…..wonder why ….good job SM
      SM: Actually your comment found its way to the spam folder. I would suggest you learn some manners while on this site or you will be gone. You are so quick to accuse, yet you are not judgmental are you now. No never.

      BTW, if you had not taken a US history class … it’s not that we think Communism or socialism is a 3rd world govt, ITS NOT A US forrm of government and never will be. Please tell me where socialism ever won out in the end?

      Maybe you might want to also apoligize for your comment above while you are at it.

    30. NGBoston on June 14th, 2010 5:16 am

      #27-Michelle—-You tell him, Sister!

      Attn: John Alonso—You are calling SM a “propoganda” site??? LMAO—And where have you received this information from?

      We’ve really tried to be kind to while and while you are certainly entitled to your own opinion, honestly –it may be time for you to put the crack pipe down or at a minimum, lay off the ganja you’ve been smoking.

      This is not PROPOGANDA—this is a site of the people and by the people. Not everyone has to agree with you, John. It is obvious however there is a language gap here and I doubt very much you are even an American Citizen.

      Joran VDS is guilty and a Murderer, Barack Hussien Obama sucks as a President….these are the facts.

      Anything else to the contrary you post here is at your own risk of ridicule. Sorry, John but you really need to hop on the clue bus before it runs your ass over.

    32. Michelle Smith on June 14th, 2010 10:12 am

      WOW! We seem to have trolls here from all over the world. Non-Americans trying to tell us what is good for America and what a great guy BO is and that we should be thankful for him. RIGHT

      If you guys like him so much, you can have him free of charge.

    33. nun on June 14th, 2010 3:22 pm

      I love it when non-US citizens try to tell Americans how racist and close minded we are. I will accept their criticism the moment I see a major (or even minor) European country with a duly elected leader, i.e. prime minister or president, of a minority race.

      I voted, I lost, but in the end, he was elected by the laws we have enacted, and under which I live. I might not like what he does, but his success proves that the US has done what other countries just give lip service to.

      John Alonso – what kind of racism does your country practice?
