Now that the election is over it’s time to get back to work, right?
There’s the Benghazi debacle that has to be addressed, Iran’s race to acquire a nuclear weapon, Syria’s continued civil war, the report that private companies are planning massive layoffs, the stagnant economy, a mounting national debt fueled by runaway deficit spending, Iran’s act of war last week when it tried to shoot down one of our surveillance drones over international waters. There’s more, but you get the idea.
Instead of facing reality, the president chose golf. According to the Weekly Standard:
President Barack Obama is spending his first Saturday after winning reelection on the golf course. Today’s outing is to the course on Andrews Air Force Base.
“Motorcade arrived at Andrews Air Force Base at 11:01 am after an uneventful ride,” the pool report reads. “President Obama is playing golf with three White House aides: Eugene Kang, Joe Paulson and trip director Marvin Nicholson, according to a White House official. Pool is holding at the Andrews fast food court for the next few hours.”
What’s that — Eugene, Joe and Marvin? No ladies in the foursome? I guess “Ladyparts” only goes so far.
One thing’s for sure, though. It’s good to be king.
