Obama and his screwed up priorities.

Once again the President of the United States of America brings shame to this once prestigious office. Let me say right off the bat, this isn’t a gay bashing post. This is a post calling out Obama for putting his political and leftist agendas ahead of what is right and ignoring our nation’s REAL heroes.

I’m sure that by now you have heard about Jason Collins coming out as the first gay basketball player. Obama is so proud of him for his “accomplishments” and called him to congratulate him on his “courage”.   Look, I know that even in today’s ultra liberal society it takes some degree of courage to come out of the closet as a gay person. I get that. My frustration here is not with Collins, he’s gay? Good for him. Who cares? Just play basketball dude.

obama bad priorities

You want to know what I am pissed off about? I’m pissed off because whenever a topic benefits President Obama, he comes out and talks about it or somehow acknowledges it. When Trayvon Martin was shot and killed, Obama stated “If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon”.  When Whitney Houston passed away, the White House issued a statement. When Collins comes out as gay, he gets a phone call from the President. President Obama supports individuals when it is in line with his agenda. However if it is something that doesn’t somehow benefit him, he stays quiet.

Remember the celebrated war hero, Chris Kyle? You know, the sniper that probably saved hundreds of American lives in real life and death combat? You know, soldiers, our sons and daughters? This REAL HERO was killed while doing something that was noble, helping out veterans. He filled up a stadium with supporters and mourners, yet President Obama didn’t say a single word about this man, there were no White House statements, nothing. This wasn’t just any soldier, this man had the most confirmed sniper kills and he was a true war hero.

Since his job was being a soldier, and since he is obviously linked to guns and combat. This wouldn’t bode well for President Obama’s anti-gun and anti-military message. Radio silence. As a true American I find these actions reprehensible and utterly offensive.
