Empty podium

2013_08 31 Empty podium

Waffles and Uncle Joe actually went GOLFING right after the speech. But what the hey.

The Secretary of State went yachting while Egypt burned and his U.N. Ambassador missed an emergency UN Security Council meeting on Syria because she was at a comedy film festival in Ireland.

President Bush’s last round of golf was October 13, 2003. As much as he loved the game, he said,

“I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal. I don’t want some mom whose son may have recently died to see the Commander-in-Chief playing golf.”

I think I have to throw up now.

  1. In the wake of Parliament’s vote not to join the United States in any military action against Syria, the Sun newspaper ran a front-page death notice for the “special relationship” between the United States and Great Britain, as well as an “obituary” on page 2.

    One thing I know as a former golfer, if you miss your tee time, you may miss your chance. But that is just for us subjects of the crown.
    So not only does barack keep everyone waiting to hear his latest BS, he then keeps people off the golf course, putting a strain on the course’s budget and keeping guys who really work for a living, and pay those high golf fees at the 19th hole.
    It’s great to be king.

      I’m still super pissed that he dragged Marines away from their families ON CHRISTMAS DAY so he could golf, INSTEAD OF SPENDING THE DAY WITH HIS OWN FAMILY. It was unscheduled, last minute, so I’m guessing he and Mooch had an argument and he insisted he had to go golfing to get away from her.
