Exclusive: Obama’s Disrespectful Behavior at Ground Zero

Ben Shapiro


It is difficult to screw up an appearance at Ground Zero on September 11th. You have to be either completely oblivious or completely indifferent. It is a signal feat of idiocy.

And yet Barack Obama accomplished it.

John McCain and Obama visited Ground Zero together. Obama and McCain entered the site. But while McCain took the time to shake hands with uniformed firefighters and a construction worker with an American flag helmet, Obama ignored them and stood around.

But he wasn’t done yet. Both McCain and Obama brought roses to place on the makeshift 9/11 memorial. Obama casually tossed his rose on the memorial, looking somewhat like Don Barzini tossing a rose on Don Corleone’s grave near the end of Godfather I. McCain and his wife, by contrast, approached the memorial gingerly, then placed the roses with care on the memorial. In case you were wondering, Michelle Obama was back in Chicago tending to the children – she somehow has time to accompany Barack to the DNC, but not to Ground Zero on September 11th.

Small gestures matter in large campaigns. That’s why Obama reversed himself on wearing an American flag pin. That’s why John McCain takes care with how he hugs Sarah Palin. In a campaign, everything is analyzed, re-analyzed, and over-analyzed.

And that’s why Obama’s flower-tossing exhibition matters. It demonstrates a lack of concentration, a lack of respect. Most of all, it displays no reverence. Perhaps Obama feels reverence. But his behavior at Ground Zero didn’t show that. Instead, it showed a man so concerned with himself that he wasn’t willing to take the time to shake hands with the “little people” or bend down to lay a rose on a monument.

That self-concern is at the center of Obama’s polling free fall. He has ranged far afield, away from policy and toward personal combat. He has done that because he cannot stand being personally affronted.

Sarah Palin attacked Obama’s community organizing. Obama responded by sending out his minions to talk about how Jesus was a community organizer and Pontius Pilate a governor. Meanwhile, he blundered into the “lipstick on a pig” controversy.

Obama attacked McCain on education. McCain responded with an ad accusing Obama of supporting comprehensive sex education for kindergarteners in Illinois. Obama came back with an ad talking about how McCain is old and doesn’t use e-mail.

The common thread is this: when attacked substantively, Obama counters personally. He gets angry, and he gets mean. He has read his own press clippings, and he believes them. He is The One. No one is allowed to attack him.

There are only two problems with such hubris. One is that Americans don’t like it. Arrogance bugs us. Ask John Edwards and Hillary Clinton.

The other problem is that when you believe yourself to be a messianic figure, you have to live up to that image – and you are bound to fail. Presidential politics is a game of attacks and counter-attacks, feints and bluffs, insults and retorts. It cannot be won up in the clouds – it has to be won in the mud. Even if your image demands that you remain the clouds, you will be brought down into the mud.

And so we see the new Barack Obama. The new Obama is no longer the “united we stand,” rhetoric-blowing giant. He is now the street-smart Chicago politician willing to unsheathe the knife on occasion. Only he’s not that street-smart, and it shows. Obama vowed to bring a gun to a knife-fight. Americans are beginning to realize that Obama’s gun is filled with water.

Obama’s behavior at the 9/11 memorial, then, represented two impulses. First, there was the anger of walking down to the memorial with the man who was sinking his highfalutin’ aspiration’. Second, there was the inability to bend down, even for a memorial.

And that betrays a disturbing lack of self-knowledge and self-restraint.

a man who had nearly every bone in his body broken --
at least understands the sacrifice, and still bends to place a rose to honor the fallen,

for a long time they have railed about his lack of patriotism, and this doesnt bother ya bugs?

would be tin horn dictators with delusions of godhood respect noone,
people do pay attention, and actions say more than flowery speeches

take another drink of koolaid, matter of fact ya may need a keg- well spiked

It was - painful - to watch McCain bend down to place his rose on the ground. He moves so stiffly.
Oh give me a break. :rolleyes:
What about the time McCain tried to shake hands with his wife mistaking her for a supporter?
You sheople are so delusional that you can not see the reality of Obama’s actions anymore than you can not see through his rhetoric. If you were to watch him kill your families right in front of you I will bet 90% of you would try to blame it on the Republicans. :mad:

Wow! This is a really, really old thread. :) From before the 2008 elections!
If he was a ****head then, and he is still a ****head, how is that not relevant.

Looks like mongoose knew then what others still can't see today. Some never will admit they were bad americans.

I also noticed the ones defending the kenyian are now LONG gone, but I predict they will come back as their accounts are still active.

Hard to approach a false flag honestly, I guess. But apparently it wasn't even that. Most of the supposed terraists were Saudi, as well as the ringleader. We leveled the wrong country (assuming it wasn't an inside job). But most Americans are political midgets, so this suits them fine.
