In Afghanistan hundreds were killed in a landslide and the following mudslide.
But this report is about the much applauded Correspondent's dinner.
On Obamacare the president said "We rolled out healthcare.gov. That could have gone better." He added "In 2008 my slogan was `Yes we can.' In 2013 my slogan was `Control-alt-delete."' Not bad in the comedy stakes. Does he write his own material?
Other jokes, many hardly disguised stabs at the media, and others included:
So maybe this writer is being over sensitive. The jokes are funny but the world is reaching a dangerous level of pollution, debt and violent conflict.
The dinner celebrated the 100th anniversary of the event so it is established and no doubt the timing is set in stone. That said would it be held hot on an event such as 911 in the USA?
Obama may have been expected to attend but how he "performed" was down to him, unless it was his team's idea?
The conclusion again is that having stirred up a global hornet's nest the USA does not care. It is a NIMBY nation - not in my backyard.
President Obama is a great entertainer but does that make his a great President and World leader?
