It would be almost impossible to conceive by any reasoned and rational thinking individual why the leader of a country would not reach out to local officials dealing with the aftermath of a terrorist attack that claimed the lives of 49 of its citizens and wounded countless others, and yet that seems to be what has taken place in Orlando.

As hard as it is to imagine, President Obama has failed to call Florida Governor Rick Scott after the worst terrorist attack on the homeland since 9/11.

The Florida Governor, appearing on “Fox & Friends” from Orlando, was asked if the president had called and responded, "No. He has not called!" adding that a “staffer has called," while reiterating that Obama had not personally contacted him.

That statement on face value is remarkable in light of the fact that Obama immediately reached out to French President Francois after a knife attack outside Paris on Tuesday.

The apparent snub by Obama towards Gov. Scott is evident, however I believe there’s something a lot more troubling than simply not receiving a phone call, in that Obama looks at the world within that extremely narrow prism of “political correctness” governed by a stubborn progressive dogma, combined with an arrogant self aggrandized view, which of course is detached from reality, and which of course puts us all at risk.

Moreover, for the “Commander in Chief” to fail to acknowledge and personally reach out to local and state officials, as well as the people of Florida at a time of national crisis – the worst mass killings by an Islamic extremist since September 11, 2001 – shows a total lack of leadership and, more importantly, empathy for those families suffering.

Thankfully however, another “Commander in Chief,” former President George W. Bush, reached out to Governor Scott and extended his condolences along with those of former First Lady Laura Bush.

The presumptive Republican nominee, Donald Trump, also called the Governor and lending his support in whatever the Governor way needed.

However what is becoming crystal clear is that Obama denies reality even when the body bags of innocent Americans begin piling up at the hands of radical Islamic extremists.
