Obama’s Mickey Mouse Speech

19 January 2012, 11:18 CST

A couple of years ago, I wrote about Obama coming to Columbus and basically wrecking a full-scale, city-wide disaster exercise that major airports are required to perform every three years.  For his ten minutes on the ground, workers at the site of his jobs speech were sent home without pay.

President Obama is above it all, our first post-American president.  He certainly didn’t learn anything from his trip to Ohio, because on the heels of killing the Keystone pipeline project and associated jobs, he has struck again in Orlando.  On short notice, he decided to show up in Disney World interrupting and disrupting the vacations of thousands of families to give a speech, ironically on tourism.

Normal folks save up years and years to afford a trip to the Magic Kingdom.  Mom and Dad have to coordinate their time off from work between their own bosses and each other, the kids’ school, etc.  They save and plan well in advance.  Most people can’t just stay over an extra day to make up the time and aren’t likely to get a refund on their park admission.

This is our president.  A man above the country, above the people who, never having held one, knows nothing about a real job and working long hours to be able to afford the extravagance of a trip to Orlando.  Ever the community organizer, Obama’s hubris and disrespect for the individual he claims to champion knows no bounds.  So far out of touch and out of step with flyover country, it would be laughable if it weren’t so infuriating.
