Have you seen any of the pictures of a profoundly bored Barack Obama at the 70th Anniversary Commemoration of the D-Day Invasion?
Good heavens, he spent the day with his trademark Mr. Pouty Face.
That’s what happens when an event isn’t all about Barack.
During the ceremony, cameras caught our illustrious President furiously chewing gum which even the French found particularly offensive (hat tip Weaselzippers).
Le chewing-gum Obama merde

On behalf of the United States of America, may I be the first to apologize to Europe for Barack Obama. He often times can be arrogant, dismissive, even derisive. Especially when the spotlight is not on him.
You see, he didn’t have anything to do with the D-Day invasion, although, I’m certain there are PR guys at the White House trying to find a way to write him in to the history books.
“And on that day as American soldiers stormed the beaches in Normandy, little did they know that they were securing America’s freedom so that one day, a black man could become President.”
You know, kind of like Obama managed to insert himself into the fall of the Berlin Wall. Remember that?
As I wrote in my book RANT: Politics & Snark in the Age of Obama:
And who can forget his large-screen speech commemorating the twentieth anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall? Now, he was just too busy to go and celebrate this monumental historical event, but he did provide them with a video of him reading a speech, and of course, he made it about him.
”Few would have foreseen on that day that a united Germany would be led by a woman from Brandenburg or that their American ally would be led by a man of African descent.”
“Mr. Gorbachev: Tear down this wall” really does look small in comparison, don’t it?
“Come on everyone! We have to tear down this wall because I foresee a black man in the White House!!!!!!” (Only, it was shouted in German)
Barack Obama wasn’t the center of attention yesterday. And when it isn’t all about Barack, he gets bored. No, not because he is simply too brilliant for words, as Valerie Jarret would have us believe, but because he doesn’t give the hairy ass of a rat about anything if he isn’t playing the starring role.
So, there he sat, bored to tears over commemorating the single biggest, most decisive moment of the Second World War, chewing on his gum like a cow ruminating cud.
Class act, that.
Boy, those Europeans wised up far faster than most Americans, didn’t they? They went from welcoming the Peace Prize Winning Obama in 2009 as if he were Jesus entering Jerusalem on a donkey to thinking this loser was nothing more than a gum chewing, golf playing lightweight in record time.
Meanwhile in America, there are still floundering idiots who thinks Barack is just days away from healing the planet.
The D-Day Commemoration was one of those things that Obama has to do for no other reason than he’s President of this stinky, sub-par country. Any time the focus is on the United States, and not on him, it is pure-D agony for him to endure it.
And because Barack is horrible at masking his disdain, indifference and disgust at all things that celebrate American greatness, his Mr. Pouty Face was on full display for all the world to see.
Vladimir Putin also attended the ceremony and, according to the Daily Mail, Obama appeared to go to great lengths to ignore the guy.
Of course he did.
Putin is the one who projects power and strength in Europe, not Obama.
Our allies in Europe are petrified with Obama at the helm of this ship of state. Putin is a threat. Obama is nothing more than a gum chewing, golf playing lightweight.
Obama would no more seek Putin out for public photo-ops than would the 98 pound weakling in high school want a yearbook picture taken with the star varsity weightlifting champ.
Barack needs to surround himself with people who make him look good.
Putin makes him look like precisely what he is.
The gum chewing, golf playing lightweight who allies himself with the Taliban and leaves our allies twisting in the wind — the bored, indifferent “world leader” who can’t be bothered to show the proper solemnity and gratitude at the 70th Anniversary of D-Day because it has nothing to do with him.
I suppose we can be grateful for one thing.
Obama didn’t do something stupid like wave to someone just as the official “World Leader Portrait” was being taken.
