Go through what American travelers are going through, that is.

Obama always thinks it’s about him. In a statement about the TSA’s insane grope ’em and scope ’em drive, three-year olds and 85-year olds alike, Obama naturally defended his administration’s approach to security. Not that someone named Barack Hussein would ever approve of actually profiling the Islamic terrorists who pose 100 per cent of the problem.

Here’s what he said:

“I don’t go through security checks to get on planes these days, so I haven’t personally experienced some of the procedures that have been put in place by TSA”

One of the first things the Navy taught me about leadership was very simple: a leader is someone who has gone through what those under his command are going through. If he hasn’t yet, then a leader goes through whatever faces his people together with them.

No leader worth his salt says, in so many words “Hey, those rules don’t apply to me, so I don’t know what you’re going through.”
