While Japan Suffers Obama Plays Golf
Japan digs out from near annihilation, Libyian Rebels are losing the fight and Mr. Obama takes to the golf course.
March 16, 2011
I’m curious to know what goes on in the mind of a man who is the President of one of the most powerful nations in the world (I say “one of the most” because Mr. Obama has singlehandedly diminished our status in that regard) when he plays golf in the aftermath of Japan’s devastating earthquake and tsunami.
Libyan rebels are being slaughtered in the streets while the administration sends mixed signals all culminating in gross inaction.
What is President Obama thinking?
He’s such a funny guy as he quipped to reporters on the golf course, “I'm not spending time on the golf course. I'm investing time in the golf course."
What a hoot that Barack is!
We all know it’s not as if Mr. Obama never gets a chance to get out on the links. By April of 2009 Mr. Obama had already beaten the number of golf breaks of George Bush by eight. He didn’t attend the funeral of Polish President Lech Kaczynski, but on the same day as the funeral he managed to show up on the golf course.
At a point, George W. Bush said during his Presidency that he decided he wouldn’t play golf any longer while we were at war, he didn’t want to send the wrong message.
There’s a man of great moral character. There's a man who isn't thinking only of himself, who has compassion, wisdom and judgment.
I do understand President Obama didn’t just play golf while Libyians were being mowed down by Gadhafi forces and Japan’s nuclear reactors were in meltdown. He was, after all, very concentrated on picking the NCAA picks as well.
Does the term “Let them eat cake” come to mind as often as it does for me with regard to Mr. and Mrs. Obama?
I’m not the first to say this, but I believe Mr. Obama is the definition of a narcissist.
Definition: Reacts to criticism with rage, shame, or humiliation; Takes advantage of other people to achieve his or her own goals; Has feelings of self-importance; Exaggerates achievements and talents; Is preoccupied with fantasies of success, power, beauty, ...
- Lacks Empathy
- Delusions of Grandeur
- Sensitive to Criticism
- Attention Seeking Behavior
- Disregard For Others
- Victimizing Others
- Inflated Self Opinion
- Self-Referential Character
I think that just about fits Mr. Obama to a tee. Pun intended.
The President of the Media Research Council said, "If George Bush reacted this way during an international catastrophe -- wholly irrelevant radio addresses, golf outing for the 61st time, the left-wing media would require medically induced sedation to keep them in check."
He’s absolutely right.
The voice of the AFLAC Goose was silenced (he was fired) when he inappropriately cracked jokes about Japan’s woes. I will grant you, it’s not precisely the same thing, but isn’t it similar? At the very least the AFLAC goose-voice-guy could claim he didn’t really believe anyone would be reading his Tweets.
Can the President claim no one would be watching him or listening to him ?
Can’t we fire this man yet?
I’m highly embarrassed this man is our President. He has no honor, he has no character and he should be very ashamed of himself. I know many of us are ashamed for him as our hearts go out to the people of Japan and the freedom fighters in Lybia.
Remember 2012. Our work is far, far from over!
