Please, head back to the golf course

Let’s see: genocide in Libya, absolute disaster in Japan, Saudi Arabia rolling over Bahrain. To say nothing of budget meltdown. Must be time for another vacation! Better get it in before the military gets shafted out of a paycheck or two while food prices rise astronomically!

Via Hot Air:

President Barack Obama will take his first official trip to Brazil this weekend where he will speak in the popular Cinelandia Square in downtown Rio de Janeiro.

The Obama family will also take in the sights in Rio. A trip to Corcovado mountain, where the Christ the Redeemer statue stands (France gave us Lady Liberty, gave Brazil Jesus) is supposedly on the itinerary. What trip to Rio would be complete without it?

A shame they’ll miss the Carnivale fun. Anyone else get to take a glam fam Spring Break trip at taxpayer expense?

Jim Geraghty takes the words right out of my mouth:

It’s also worth recalling that the immediately preceding president was demonized, seemingly endlessly, for A) continuing to listen to a teacher read “My Pet Goat” after being informed of the 9/11 attacks, refraining from causing a panic among children before him; B) a photo of him holding a guitar was used to insist that he somehow ignored Hurricane Katrina C) his line “now watch this drive” was used to assert that somehow Bush was lazily golfing while the war on terror raged . In other words, our friends on the Left already established the standard that a president dare not be seen doing anything less than fully appropriate focus while a crisis is occurring, anywhere in the world.

Stay home and golf. Helluva lot cheaper.

  1. I love Obama on the golf course and/or out of the country. He’s less likely to screw up the economy or tell us what to do that way.

    In fact, if I could afford it, I’d pay him double his salary to just stay out on the links for the rest of his term. Maybe he could get good enough to go pro and get out of the politics business completely.
