Skip to comments.Obama Hits Golf Course After Announcing National Emergency
Posted on 09/01/2013 7:25:36 AM PDT by lbryce
President Obama and Vice-President Biden held a rare press event Saturday in the Rose Garden to address the escalating tensions with Syria. President Obama said he was convinced Syrian President Bashir Assad had ordered a chemical weapon attack on his citizens and that the US, and the world community, must act in response. Obama called on Congress to authorize a military attack against Syria. A new foreign policy crisis now faces the US. After the press event, Obama and Biden went golfing.
I'm not an expert in foreign policy, but I can think of a few things a President ought to do after requesting authority for a military strike on a sovereign nation. There are probably some Congressional leaders who ought to be briefed. There are likely one or two world leaders who would appreciate a chat about the US plans. No doubt generals in the military would have a thought or two about how things should proceed.
An hour after announcing a potential new military venture in the Middle East, with unknown consequences, "5 Wood or 2 Iron" is the last thing I want on a President's mind

We need to bomb the hell out of Assad. And now I need to get me some Reggie Love.
Unbelievable. The hubris of this man.
The real reason for the delay...
BTW, Valerie just issued the "Obama Doctrine:"
the bombing mission must be vital to protect O's image.
Any resulting damage, mitigated by war profiteering, is an
BACKGROUND MUSIC---"If I Only Had A Brain"
" This'll get done fast---I gotta get back to golf."
"A few measly bombs will pump-up all of our resumes,
especially Benghazi screw-ups Susan Rice, candidate Hillary...
and that pontificating jerk, Kerry. "
"And at $50 billion per day for the incursion, we all get to pocket a
few hundred million. Valerie just checked my offshore holdings---
war-profiteering is big bucks. Just ask the 'bombs-away neocons.' "
"Besides, Michelle's been nagging me for new diamonds and a pricey Vineyard house."
"Dem Syrians start bombing back, you on your own kemosabe."
Hah! He doesn't carry and can't hit a 2 iron. I guarantee it. When he can it a persimmon wood or forged iron off the deck, let me know.
Pretty sad that he was not hitting the phones with the house and senate, world leaders. Shows how out of touch he is with the world . Out playing golf with crazy Uncle Joe.
Darn difficult to get a tee time on Labor Day weekend!
With as much golfing this guy has got in and with as high as priority as it is that he golfs as much as he does, can anyone honestly answer the question?
Has he gotten any better at it?
Baraq's golf scores are as closely guarded as his SATs, college transcripts and LSATs.
Obama whiffs everything.
I don’t see much difference between Obama going golfing & every senator & congressperson continuing their vacations
The Syrians are pre-positioned for precisely that.
A National Emergency to THE FOREIGNER is not getting his tee time when he wants it.
I was just thinking the same thing! A wiser man would be on the phones talking with other leaders and for sure would want the press there taking photos of him at work. Just more evidence of his arrogance. He doesn’t need to be about the business of dealing with unpleasantness. He just has to go play!!
He has the grown-ups(whoever that may be) on the phones for him. BO doesn’t do any of the heavy lifting of being POTUS. He is simply there to enjoy the extraordinary perks that the office provides for him and his family. It’s gonna be a real downer for him when he loses his private golf outings and jet.
The tens of thousands of Syrian refugees are all Muslims-—who will claim “asylum” and collect big SS checks till the end of time-—not to mention the gravy train freebies.
