“Rome burns as Nero fiddles.” I don’t think it takes a lot of imagination to figure this one out. Without all the comparisons of “this president did this, ad infinitum” Obama doesn’t seem to have a sense of how the people scrutinize what their leaders do. The “folks” as we are called, hear of nothing but extravagance and wasteful spending coming out of Washington and this concert fits that description. We expect entertaining for visiting heads of state but when they are cancelling tours of the white house this concert seems to be ill timed. Obama just seems somewhat oblivious to such things, I think they describe it as being tone deaf as to the voice of the people.
