What 'Doesn't Happen in Other Countries'?

Obama forgets Paris while discussing mass shootings.

While in Paris for the UN climate summit, Barack Obama made his entry for “Non Compos Mentis Quote of the Year.” Referring to last week’s murderous rampage at a Colorado Planned Parenthood, he opined, “Obviously, my heart goes out to the families of those impacted. I mean, I say this every time we’ve got one of these mass shootings: This just doesn’t happen in other countries.”

Wait, what? Obama is in Paris, where they just endured a jihadist attack in which Islamic State terrorists killed 130. Most of the dead were killed in mass shootings. Earlier this year, Paris’ Charlie Hebdo offices were attacked, again by Islamofascists wielding rifles, and 11 were killed.

Obama did seem to catch himself, though, and went on about being “rightly determined to prevent terrorist attacks wherever they occur.” But his problem is that he always thinks he’s the smartest, sensible and most compassionate guy in the room. He saw a chance to bash America before the rest of the world while waxing eloquent about gun control, and he seized it, only to utter something completely senseless.
