He just can’t help himself, can he? In what could have been a solemn, dignified moment that saw the Pearl Harbor memorial being visited by the current Japanese Prime Minister, President Obama took time to focus on the “embittered” feelings that still reside among survivors of that unprovoked attack which killed more than 2400 Americans.
Via the Daily Mail :
“So yes, there may be some who feel personally embittered, but I’m confident that many will set aside their own personal bitterness, not because they’re personally satisfied by the words of the prime minister but because they recognize how important this moment is for the United States.
Adding, ‘And that’s certainly why they qualify to be described as the greatest generation.”
The president’s words were classic Obama – a compliment by way of the back of his hand. Inform these WWII veterans that they have HIS approval so long as they subscribe to HIS belief regarding how they should act and feel – these men and women who gave all to defend a country Mr. Obama long ago made clear he has little regard for, just as he has so little regard for them.
