According to a NY Times article Barack Obama eventually roused himself from his usual daily narcissistic haze to realize that America was shaken by the terrorism attack in San Bernardino:
But that’s not how it originally was written. It started like this:
In his meeting with the columnists, Mr. Obama indicated that he did not see enough cable television to fully appreciate the anxiety after the attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, and made clear that he plans to step up his public arguments.
In response, Brian Stelter of CNN tweeted:
Obama needs more cable news in his media diet? Revealing comment in a private meeting with newspaper columnists…
And that set off a flood of criticism. Barack Obama. Insensitive. Callous. Doesn’t watch enough cable TV.
As we know, the NY Times is the official state newspaper of the Obama White House and anything that might besmirch The One is not to be permitted. So they rewrote it- stealthily, so it no longer would embarrass The One. Apparently they don’t want anyone to think that he doesn’t watch enough cable TV. That’s not the real story.
Although he denies watching cable TV, he watches plenty. No it’s not that he doesn’t watch enough cable TV. It’s that he really doesn’t give a shit. In the Obama universe, the is only Obama. There is nothing else. Only the One.
The four dead in Benghazi were a “bump in the road.”
140 dead in Paris was a “setback.”
Minutes after speaking with the parents of James Foley, who was beheaded by ISIS, Obama was teeing off on Martha’s Vineyard. He’s got his priorities.
So come on. It’s only 14 dead in San Bernardino. That’s nothing.
It’s nothing for the guy who said we could easily absorb another 9-11 attack.
Cable TV? Obama watches lots of cable TV. Thin skinned as he is, he’s keenly aware of what they say about him on Fox News. And he always has those NCAA brackets ready come March Madness.
It’s not that he doesn’t watch cable. It’s that he doesn’t give a shit.
