Obama Golfing After Foley Beheading Statement “Didn’t Reflect The Depth Of His Grief”…say WH Aides
Being the POTUS is a hard job, that I am certain I could not do, but also one I would not attempt. I am also very sure that job comes with stress, and I would want breaks from time to time. All that said, how many rounds of golf will this fool play before he gets serious about the State of the Union?
From the article:
WASHINGTON – He had just hung up the telephone with the devastated parents before heading in front of the cameras. Unusually emotional, President Obama declared himself “heartbroken” by the brutal murder of an American journalist, James Foley, and vowed to “be relentless” against Islamic radicals threatening to kill another American.
But as soon as the cameras went off, Mr. Obama headed to his favorite golf course on Martha’s Vineyard, where he is on vacation, seemingly able to put the savagery out of his mind. He spent the rest of the afternoon on the links even as a firestorm of criticism erupted over what many saw as a callous indifference to the slaughter he had just condemned.
Oh yes, I wish I could say that this was unusual in some way or not that status quo. Is it too much to ask for a President that actually acts like an American?
