Obama's Impotent Outrage

Has anyone been paying attention to our president's outrage? He previously expressed it over remarks made by his former pastor, Jeremiah Wright. "I am outraged by the comments that were made and saddened by the spectacle that we saw," Barack bemoaned.

He claimed to be "choked up with anger" over news that AIG had used millions of dollars in taxpayer bailout funds to pay bonuses to employees.

When Obama was asked by Chip Reid of CBS, if he was as angry as his Defense Secretary, Robert Gates, about all of the leaks coming out of his administration regarding the Afghanistan deployment decision he said, “I think I’m probably angrier than Bob Gates about it."

Those are just a few examples of our president's anger and outrage.

And now, an American woman who worked at the consulate in Ciudad Juarez in Mexico, and her husband were fatally shot by hitmen in broad daylight on Saturday as they left a consulate social event. Obama said the killings "outraged" him. If his outrage and anger may be judged by recent history, they are meaningless and will come to nothing.
