This is a heartbreaker. If this asshat we call _resident Golfer had the tenacity, the stick-to-it of character that is necessary to be a President he would have stayed on this, and many other issues past, and present until he won the day, and Mr. Foley was rescued.
To say “Oh Well I tried”, and not pursue the rescue until he was rescued is unforgiveable.
Haven’t we been there with this asshat too much already?
My father was a golf instructor at Canoga Park Country Club back in the thirties, and taught us to play as kids in the fifties. I can’t to this day understand how that game can possibly be other than a form of relaxation. It’s exercise to walk the links, and a challenge to gauge the overall conditions present, and hit the ball accurately to its destination, but it’s a game. It’s relaxation as is a day at the park with baseball, or football, or Soccer, and other activities.
My gosh think of the exciting challenges the President of the United States has to face everyday. A good game of golf should be something one participates for relaxation upon deserving the moment.
