Obama's Katrina Moment?

Mark Steyn:
So, on a highly symbolic date, mobs storm American diplomatic facilities and drag the corpse of a U.S. ambassador through the streets. Then the president flies to Vegas for a fundraiser.
Read it all.

UPDATE: More from Andrew McCarthy:

Democrats and their sharky Obamedia defense lawyers are in a snit. For three dreamy convention days in Charlotte, they told themselves that, for the first time in decades, it was their guy who had the upper hand when it came to national security. Now that bubble has burst, the way contrived narratives do when they crash into concrete challenges. At that point, an airy president of the world won’t do; we need to have a president of the United States, a job that has never suited, and has never been of much interest to, Barack Obama.
Defense against foreign enemies is the primary job of the president of the United States. The rationale for the office’s creation is national defense — not green venture capitalism, not rationing medical care, not improving the self-image of the “Muslim world,” not leaving no child behind, not blowing out the Treasury’s credit line. Yet, though we are entering the late innings, foreign policy and national defense have not been factors in the 2012 campaign.

Andrew McCarthy? Wow.

Who knew running around with a dead body in Weekend and Bernie's and young Kim Cattrall in Mannequin made one an expert on world affairs. And who said all of these Hollywood idiots are all that dumb?

Mike,

Not sure sophomoric humor is the appropriate response to this sad and horrifying murder of the US ambassador and others.

And obviously, a fundraiser in Vegas, a photo op in front of coffins, and a critique of your Republican opponent instead of the bloodthirsty Islamic extremists is not an appropriate response by Obama, Clinton and the rest of their inept Administration.

@MediaMike:

I am shocked at your sheer foolishness.

The author of that piece is a different Andrew McCarthy than the late 80s/early 90s film actor.

It's people like you that keep people like Snooki, Kim Kardashian, and Lady Gaga in business with your mindless tabloid mentality.

Patrick: If Mike says it is THAT Andrew_McCarthy then it MUST be THAT Andrew_McCarthy. You just have to understand that progressive/liberals are NEVER wrong.

Gentlemen, I'm sorry you didn't like the humor. Feel free to return to your usual business.

Humor in or of your post was not evident, Mike. But thanks for the good wishes.
