It is abundantly clear that Obama loves the power and perks of being president but decries the work the office requires.
The president INTERRUPTED HIS VACATION to deal with the beheading of an American photojournalist by ISIS recently. He gave the press conference on this horrible tragedy and then resumed his golf game at Martha’s Vineyard with retired basketball star Alonzo Mourning. What?
Don’t you think there is something wrong with the incomplete, unhealthy response of resuming a golf game after confirmation of the most unfortunate incident to date involving an American overseas?
I would have cut my vacation short, gone back to Washington, and started working on the associated problems of this ISIS incident. And I would have done it with complete sincerity and pure intent, not gone back to Washington just for political show. But, that’s just me.
This president stays on the golf course and grooms a relationship of personal significance with a former NBA star instead of developing any relationship of personal significance with the people of the United States during this ISIS crisis.
Working for the American people is a tertiary occupation at best for Obama.
