Smart Power In Action

Ash cancels your trip to Poland for the funeral of their President and many other dignitaries who were killed in the crash last week. So, fully imbued with the spirit of international political nuance and with your schedule “reset” should you…personally express condolences to their embassy here? Nyah. How about attending a memorial service back in your heavily Polish “base” in Chicago? Nyah.

Might as well just hit the links

A massive volcanic plume covering most of Europe forced President Obama to cancel a Sunday trip to Poland to attend the funeral of the nation’s president. But the last-minute change left an opening in his schedule, so the president headed to the links for a round of golf instead.

On a cool but sun-drenched Sunday, the president and three golfing companions went to Andrews Air Force Base to play 18 holes. It is the 32nd time Mr. Obama has played golf since taking office Jan. 20, 2009, according to CBS Radio’s Mark Knoller.

I think I’ve played 8 or 9 times since then, but mind you I’m not President.

I just get the bill.

    He is beyond parody or satire. As cynical as I am about politics, even I have been absolutely floored at the anti-social and anti-american things he has been doing.

    He’s not a stupid man and it’s clear he has been raised to know about manners. The only conclusion, which too many are afraid to come to, is that this man is treasonously trying to destroy this country.

    It’s the modern equivalent of Nero fiddling while Rome builds, Skyler.

    What about those other three goofballs? “Gee, Mr. President, it sounds wonderful, but I was thinking that there was something else that we ought to be doing right now.”

    John Cleese didn’t let a little thing like a volcano get in his way.

    I’d rather he played golf every day.
