Is it true that Obama ignored Shirley Temple’s death?

Shirley Temple and Obama

Shirley Temple, may she rest in peace, wasn’t just an old movie star. She was — and to some extent, remains — an American icon. That alone entitles her to notice. But the President also should have noticed her passing because she was a former ambassador for the United States, a role she carried out with dignity and honor.

Of course, perhaps all of the reasons I stated above for honoring Shirley Temple explain why Obama ignored her death (if, in fact, that’s what he did).

    He is appallingly partisan and racist.

      He’s giving Idi Amin a run for the money.

    The white guilt that elected this un-American incompetent is just stunning.

    There is a long and vile string of tweets by people who just can’t stand the fact that Shirley Temple was a Republican. See my post Let All the Poisons That Lurk in the Mud, Hatch Out.

      That would be the tolerant left?

        I read a slew of them earlier, which only confirmed what I have always known about the Left – they’ve inbred with the jihadist death culture.

          I don’t need to read it to know what it confirms.

    Shirley Temple-Black was an old white Republican. Nothing there for Obama to commemorate.

    Look on the bright side. Would anyone here want Obama to preside over their funeral or talk about your post death to the nation?

    Shirley Temple symbolized talent, decency and accomplishment. Those qualities are to the Left what crucifixes are to vampires.

      The Leftist alliance has a lot of monsters in them, zombies and now vampires too.

    The banner of this site says Conservatives deal in facts and draw conclusions………….It was Republican NJ State Governor Chris Christie who ordered the flags lowered when Whitney Houston died, not Barack Obama.  Sorry to rain on the racist parade.

    Obama was just doing what the rest of us would do, which is honor the person you would have felt most comfortable with.
     
    Obama: “Whitney? Choom, choom!”
     
    Whitney: “Sweetie boy!”
     
    Obama: “Shirley? Choom, choom!”
     
    Shirley: =CRICKETS=

    Phillip Hoffman got six pages in Entertainment Weekly. Wanna bet that Shirley Temple Black barely rates a full column, and possibly a pic in the “Changes” (or whatever they call it) section? Six pages for a guy who OD’ed on heroin. (I think Whitney Houston rated about the same coverage.)  Maximillian Schell deserved better coverage than PHS…

    Obama grew up surrounded by Whitney culture.  She was everywhere, and he couldn’t miss her.  Besides, she was black.
     
    To be aware of Shirley Temple, you have to be somewhat Americanized, and Obama is not.  Not very American, that is.
     
    You could also be aware of Shirley Temple’s importance to Americana if you have even the SLIGHTEST interest in learning new things that your Communist mentors in Hawaii and the Philippines didn’t force-feed you.  You would have to have a mild interest in keeping your mind open, just a crack.

      Obama was learning more about how to bring a gun to Ameirca’s knife political fight. No mercy in victory, no grace in defeat.

    Why would Obama honor Temple? He won. He didn’t grow up in Temple’s AmeriKKKa. He hates everything about Temple, starting with her skin color.
