You know it is bad when even Tom Brokaw is criticizing Obama.
A great many Americans were disappointed, albeit not entirely surprised, by President Barack Obama’s “Oh well, I’ve got a ballgame to attend” response to the tragic bombing attacks that rocked Brussels on Tuesday.
Even some members of the liberal media, who typically support every action and utterance of their Dear Leader, took issue with his decidedly less-than-concerned reaction to the Islamic State group-claimed attacks.
Legendary former NBC news anchor Tom Brokaw, appearing on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Wednesday, criticized Obama for choosing to remain at the baseball game in Cuba instead of taking even the symbolic action of appearing to give a rip about what had happened, according to Breitbart.
“This is the time to be the leader,” Brokaw declared, mincing no words about the lack of action from the supposed leader of the free world.
“So much of politics and national security is a combination of symbolism and reality,” Brokaw said. “The reality is that we did have that attack yesterday. It was unnerving to us, it was devastating in Europe.”
“But at the same time, the symbolism is that the president stayed at the baseball game all day long where you would have thought he would have said, ‘Look, we’ve got more business that I have to deal with, I wish you well,’ get on the phone,” he continued.
“We’ve got to put together some kind of a bulletproof syndicate to deal with all this. There’s a real urgency about it, and he has got to convey that, not just to the American people but to the world.”
