Yesterday Malaysian Airlines Flint MH17 was blown out of the sky by pro-Russian separatists in Eastern Ukraine, but President Obama could only spare 38 seconds of a political speech in Wilmington, Delaware to discuss this cowardly act while the families of 298 souls grieved for their loved ones.
Governor Gilmore took issue with Mr. Obama saying:
“It’s a bit dismissive that President Obama would fly to New York City for a political fundraiser, instead of returning to Washington to keep a close eye on this very volatile situation as it develops.”
Amidst all the problems facing and increasingly dangerous world, it's time for President Obama to stop talking and start leading:
“American has got to have an active foreign policy and President Obama must project that he is in control and ready to act as necessary," said Gilmore.
