Imagine the grieving families of those killed as they hear the Commander in Chief speak so callously of the dead. Pat Smith, mother of Sean Smith has been in the press since the murders were first reported and still has not received answers to her questions from President Obama or from Secretary of State Clinton. She said this after the President's indelicate remark:
"My son is not very 'optimal' -- he is also very dead. I've not been 'optimal' since he died and the past few weeks have been pure hell," she said. "How can you say somebody being killed is not very 'optimal'? I don't think the president has the right idea of the English language."President Obama is a trained lawyer, graduating from Harvard Law School. He was Editor of the Harvard Law Review. We are told how articulate he is and how very intelligent the man is. He is a seasoned Chicago politician. He knows that words matter and he know exactly what he is relating to an audience. There is no excuse for such crass dialogue from him, unless he truly is the cold fish he is reported to be when it comes to anyone other than himself.
