US Ravaged by Tornadoes, Floods, and Wildfires; Obama Off to Ireland

What's the definition of aloof? This picture should be next to the word in Webster's dictionary.

I'd say that aloof is when the rest of the world is looking at the brutal damage done by tornadoes, floods, and wildfires in the US, and we have a President flying to Dublin, sipping guiness in a pub, only to court Irish-American voters in an election taking place in 18 months. (Obama only discovered that he had Irish roots in 2007 when he decided to run for president, according to the Boston Globe.)

Maybe aloof is when a President's wife takes a private jet to Spain and parties like it's 1999 with actors and celebrities in the middle of the worst recession since the Great Depression (in her husband's own words).

Some might say aloof is when a President declares war on a nation on a Friday and then takes his family on a vacation to Rio the next day, without any explanation.

Others might believe aloof is when a President has played 70 golf times in a two-year span where he has waged war in three nations and American soldiers have died.

Obama. Uggh.
