Presidential Empathy Update

Remember when it wasn’t ENOUGH that President Bush cut a vacation short and flew over Katrina ravaged New Orleans on his way back to the White House? How he should have BEEN there?
Good times, good times.

And it seemed like nobody was cutting short jack in Martha’s Vineyard.

Not for cities under water, not for cities on fire…


UNTIL what amounts to a CRISIS forced his hand (from the club shaft):


EDGARTOWN, Mass. (AP) — Golf, afternoons at the beach and … political campaigning?

President Barack Obama is interrupting what so far has been a leisurely vacation to help raise money for Hillary Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee. Obama has said there’s never been anyone more qualified than Clinton, who was his rival in the 2008 presidential contest and his first-term secretary of state, to be president.

Good to know SOMEBODY can count on him!

    One can only hope she goes into convulsions or something in public. Her health is even getting the MSM worried.

  2. Kathy Kinsley says:

    If you think I’m lacking in empathy, I am saddened by her – 15 years ago, she was fairly sane. Now, I’m not so sure.

    I’ll vote for Trump. I’d vote for an alien invasion over Hillary. Put me in the #anybodybutHillary camp.

  3. JeffS says:

    Empathy is not required for that creature, Kathy. Hillary has brought everything upon herself, by choice. I don’t believe she was ever sane.

    As for Obama — [bleep] him.

    “As for Obama — [bleep] him.”

    No thanks, I’ll leave that to Michelle.

    This is pure speculation but you have to wonder if Bill brought back a souvenir of London that might account for HRC’s current health.

  7. Kathy Kinsley says:

    Heh – doubtful. I suspect she leaves him to his interns.

  8. Syd B. says:

    I’d like Obama to take a swing at Hillary with his 4 iron. From what I hear about his game, however, he’d probably miss.

  9. tree hugging sister says:

    Yuck, Kathy. YUCK YUCK YUCK. Even the mention of that asshole and I get the skeevies.

    The way I look at it… the choice between these two is like being on a burning plane. Staying is out of the question, but there aren’t any parachutes left.

    Voting for Trump is rather like jumping for it. It is mad indeed, but it might still be preferable to take the one-in-a-million chance that I’ll manage to survive the fall, instead of staying aboard to toast to a crisp (or plunge into the side of a mountain).

    I can respect those who chose to stay and try to crash-land under a modicum of control, and respect the leapers. What I can’t figure are the full-throated partisans who on the one hand insist that the plane is perfectly airworthy and well-piloted, and who on the other insist that once you jump you’ll be magically borne aloft in perfect safety and comfort.

  11. Syd B. says:

    Here’s the way I look at the plane scenario. If I were on that plane with Hillary and Donald and knew that there was only 1 parachute, I’d give it to Hillary and tell her to jump as the world needs her far more than me or Donald. Then, after her departure, I would explain to Donald that there was nothing wrong with the plane and that Hillary just jumped out of the plane with my backpack.

    (old joke, I know)

    Well he’s certainly not a class act.

    And continued with his vacation, of course.

  13. Kathy Kinsley says:

    @ nightfly – I see it as more a bailing out with a possibly faulty parachute vs diving out with lead weights on.
