While many Americans are concerned that the world is indeed falling apart, the president has been accused of being out of touch, aloof or just simply not interested in leading. So when I saw that the President acknowledged that, ‘the world is falling apart,’ I was encouraged that maybe, just maybe, Obama was going to actually lead.
But don’t get your hopes up.
Today The Hill is reporting:
President Obama on Friday said social media and the nightly news are partly to blame for the sense that “the world is falling apart.”
“I can see why a lot of folks are troubled,” Obama told a group of donors gathered at a Democratic National Committee barbecue in Purchase, N.Y
“The world’s always been messy … we’re just noticing now in part because of social media,” he said, according to a White House pool report.
“If you watch the nightly news, it feels like the world is falling apart,” said Obama.
So as you can see, it’s just social media and nightly news that is causing the world’s problems, they are not real problems, so you, me and the rest of world can just relax. That includes the Ukrainians, Israelis, Kurds, Christians in Iraq, as well as the citizens in the border states, and the Africans with ebola.
There are no problems when Obama is president… Just ask him!
