On January 12, 2010, Barack Obama committed the most disgusting (known) act of his presidency so far. During a memorial service for the innocent people killed by left-wing occultist, Jared Loughner, Barack Obama gave what sounded like a subdued campaign speech. Rather than honor the victims and their families, Obama chose to shift much of the focus to himself.
During the oddly branded event, "Together We Thrive: Tucson & America," Obama mentioned himself and his feelings far too often, pandered to the crowd, and blamed political critics for the deaths. He managed to appear very creepy with a stunning lack of emotion and heart. His numerous pauses for applause showed a tremendous amount of arrogance.
What was with the applause, anyway? Didn't these classless morons in the audience know it is almost never appropriate to clap at a memorial service? Maybe they were excited by all of the Democrat blue ""Together We Thrive" T-shirts they got for free. Memorials are for the victims and their families only. These situations should never be used for self-promotion and political posturing. The whole display was simply disgusting.
