Sometimes your opinions are the worst of the worst. A plane is shot down and you come here to blame Obama. Come on man. Be objective for once in your life.

I didn't blame him for the plane being shot down. I don't think that was the appropriate reaction, possibly 23 Americans dead in a plane that's shot down and he goes out to schmooze and have a burger? How would the Left have reacted if Bush did that?

There isn't even a need to think about political lines right now. You will find hate if you're looking for it, you're always looking for it.

Bush continued reading a chldren's book after he found out 9/11 happened.

I didn't make a big deal out that when I was 17 and I won't make a big deal out of Obama eating lunch when he found out about a plane crash in Ukraine.

Can we save this crap for the political section? What a terrible time to inject politics.

Horrible, absolutely horrible. I feel for all the families of the people on the flight. I have to imagine that there were many different internationals on this flight.

Introducing this to this thread is absolute no-class garbage.

Exactly. As if Obama should not eat lunch until he gets to the bottom of this. You don't even know what happened yet, and I am sure the White House and everyone in charge in Washington is investigating and creating plans of action as we speak.

Careful now...you'll be labeled a liberal communist if you think the President should eat after he finds out about a plane crash...

Yeah, if only I could be so classy as to mention it might be a tragedy and then tell some jokes. Ooops, that was our President.

Even noted this noted right wing radical seems a bit put off by his reaction:

Piers MorganVerified account ‏@piersmorgan

President Obama massively dropped the ball just now. 23 Americans killed and he says 'it looks like a terrible tragedy' then back to jokes?

I didn't blame him at all, that's a pure lie. I criticized his reaction. That's worlds apart and you know it, but feel free to distort and pile on.

Flying commercial routes over a war zone in which several aircraft have already been shot down, seems like a very poor choice.

Bush continued reading a chldren's book after he found out 9/11 happened.

In fact, video manipulation of that event was crucial for the Bush bashing in Farenheit 911. Obama doesn't seem to have a Michael Moore to deal with. Once again, he gets off easy.

I fail to see how questioning why commercial airlines are flying routes over a war zone is blaming the victim. Seems like faux outrage on your part.

You are right he doesn't have Michael Moore to deal with, just Fox News.

NOTAMs were published by both US and Europe about the dangers of overflight. NOTAMs are to be read by flight planning and the piloting aircrew.
