I’d submit the photo says it all.
The man is beyond tone deaf. He clearly possesses NPD and, further, I submit, may be an actual Sociopath.
Can you imagine had GW Bush done this at any funeral, much less of state?

President Obama rejected the notion that the IRS’ targeting of Tea Party groups was illegal — or even improper — during his interview with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews on Thursday.
Obama was at American University to sell his flailing healthcare law to the young people upon which the insurance exchanges heavily rely. As promised, Matthews allowed him to make his pitch with no tough questions or pushback.
But the interview became interesting when the Hardball host asked why Americans were growing increasingly skeptical of government. Obama noted that the media never seems interested in government success stories. “When we do things right, they don’t get a lot of attention,” he said.
A wonderful little dismissive comment in the last paragraph:
President Obama later passed blame for his failures onto his cabinet agencies — claiming that “somebody somewhere at this very moment is screwing something up” — and repeated the nauseating platitude that “government’s not somebody else. Government’s us.”
With Mr Obama it’s always the same: seldom is he ever responsible for any failures within his administration. But more importantly: if the IRS’s purposeful targeting of Conservative groups was a non-issue, then why did this occur:
Lois G. Lerner, the woman at the center of the IRS tea party targeting scandal, retired from the agency Monday morning after an internal investigation found she was guilty of “neglect of duties” and was going to call for her ouster, according to congressional staff.
And why did the interim IRS commissioner get fired?

During today’s White House Youth Summit, President Obama called on young people to do whatever they can to promote his signature health care law — including plying their customers with cheap booze.
“If you are a bartender, have a happy hour,” Obama said as the crowd laughed. “And also probably get health insurance because a lot of people don’t have it.”
Great. Ply the youth with booze. Fabulous idea.
Can you imagine had GW Bush suggested a fraction of these stupid proposals?
I was planning two specific posts for today and tomorrow, when the above headline caught my eye. I bring that article to you now, from MediaIte.com:

During a congressional committee hearing about the constitutional limits imposed on the presidency and the implications of President Barack Obama’s disregard for implementing the Affordable Care Act as written, one expert testified that the consequences of the president’s behavior were potentially grave. He said that the precedent set by Obama could eventually lead to an armed revolt against the federal government.
Apparently one person, named Michael Cannon, seems to “get it.” Continuing:
On Tuesday, Michael Cannon, Cato Institute’s Director of Health Policy Studies, testified before a congressional committee about the dangers of the president’s legal behavior.
“There is one last thing to which the people can resort if the government does not respect the restraints that the constitution places on the government,” Cannon said. “Abraham Lincoln talked about our right to alter our government or our revolutionary right to overthrow it.”
And, in concert with Lincoln, JFK said:
“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”
Mr Cannon’s most important sentence:
“If the people come to believe that the government is no longer constrained by the laws, then they will conclude that neither are they.”
I have written, essentially, the same thing before on this very blog, but with regard to illegal immigration. Now, we have the additional issue of ObamaKare.
Michael F. Cannon is the Director of Health Policy Studies for the Cato Institute think tank. Check their site here.
Do you believe that? If Obama fired Sebelius, he would have to nominate a new HHS secretary to be confirmed by the Senate. The confirmation hearings would be a “bloodbath.” And all the powers of the ACA would fall to her. Except now? It is a filibuster-LESS Senate. 51 votes.
Unpacking Mr Cannon’s words from above: as I wrote a number of times earlier with regard to illegal immigrants and the government’s decision to NOT enforce laws on the books –
If the government can decide to avoid and disregard its own laws — essentially picking and choosing which laws it wishes to enforce (without eliminating those laws statutorily) — then what keeps any other actual citizen from deciding to pick and choose which laws he or she wishes to obey when they become inconvenient?
If Mr Obama disregards the law, then why should Americans keep the law?
You tell me.
Two extremely important videos to watch (thanks Geeeez) regarding the facts and fallacies of Obamacare.
The second video has Paul Ryan shredding Obamacare in a mere six minutes.
Yet Obamacare was thrust through literally in the dead of night, on a weekend, with purely partisan support. Not even one Republican — despite the plethora of RINOs within — voted for Obamacare.
Obamacare killed individual and private plans this year. In 2014 my health insurance coverage will get killed, via my employer.
This is perfectly in keeping with Mr Obama’s plan to place the US government into the Single Payer framework, enabling the government to control over 1/6th of the entire economy.
He’s going to “Cloward-Piven” the entire nation, starting with healthcare first.
