On the eve of his departure late last week, Obama authorized airstrikes in Iraq to beat back Islamist militants from committing genocide. Then as he wrapped up his first round of golf on the Massachusetts island Saturday night, The Atlantic interview with Hillary Clinton hit the Web, sparking days of speculation about the fraying Clinton-Obama relationship.

This “suck-up” is almost as bad as Chris “thrill up my leg” Mathews!
Must have accidentally turned on the news for a minute.
Oh, poor baby...
That phone and pen gets heavy at times I guess.
Poor guy, just look at all the stuff he has to deal with.... I feel bad for him.
This is my in-laws opinion. Gag me. Most is self inflicted and his lazy inability to actually do anything.
Anyone feel sorry this guy?
Oh Cry me a freakin’ river Politico! Someone call for a WAAAAAAAMBULANCE.
Why would Clown Prince nobama take a vacation to Hell? Ultimately, he will spend eternity there.
No, Wilson is clearly in the lead.
