Obama's strange sense of humor

Ed Lasky
Believe it or not, Barack Obama is cracking jokes about the horrific fires in Texas. I guesshe won't be using Bill Clinton's old line, "I feel your pain," when people complain about the terrible economy. How presidential, how empathetic:

At a Silicon Valley fundraiser Sunday, the president took a jab at Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry, saying that he's a "governor whose state is on fire, denying climate change."

Aside from the fact that this is just a cheap political shot at the expense of Americans who are suffering, it is just not funny and weird. Furthermore, it is just un-presidential and grossly insensitive.

Hasn't Barack Obama talked about empathy quite a bit over the years? He all but made that a qualification for choosing Supreme Court Justice nominees. He has  talked about the need for being each others' keepers.
