Patterico's Pontifications


This Shouldn’t Be Surprising Coming From A President Who Believes Talking About Climate Change Will Have ISIS Shaking In Their Boots

From the World Climate Summit in Paris, President Obama responded to a reporter’s question about the Planned Parenthood shooting in Colorado Springs:

“With respect to Planned Parenthood, obviously, my heart goes out to the families of those impacted,” Obama said in response to a reporter’s question. “I mean, I say this every time we’ve got one of these mass shootings; this just doesn’t happen in other countries.”

The president’s inaccurate statement comes just three weeks after the Paris terrorist attack for which ISIS claimed responsibility and which left 130 people dead and 368 injured. It also comes some 11 months after the Charlie Hebdo terrorist attack which left 12 people dead and 11 injured. In both attacks, terrorists were armed with assault rifles and other weapons.

Can Hillary be far behind?

“We in the Senate should not fail to see the context in which this vile assault took place,” he added, pointing to the videos made by an anti-abortion group. “Since that time, the Republican Congress have made it their mission to push these unsubstantiated allegations every chance they get.” He urged lawmakers to be “mindful of our words and actions.”

The folks at the Center for Medical Progress better be careful. The last time they blamed a mass murder on YouTube videos, the video maker got arrested.

Open piehole, insert foot:

With respect to Planned Parenthood, obviously my heart goes out to the families of those impacted. I mean, Nancy, I say this every time we’ve got one of these mass shootings. This just doesn’t happen in other countries.

Obama said this today . . . in Paris.


You know, we Americans don’t elevate our suffering above that of other people, Mr. President. That’s not who we are.

Obama: That’s Not Who We Are. That’s Not Who We Are. That’s Not…

Of course, you could do this with any politician who has a canned line he repeats endlessly. (In other words, any politician.)

That doesn’t make it any less fun.

By the way, reminded of his low approval ratings, Obama reversed course this morning, telling assembled reporters: “As I have always said, that is who we are.”
