The last time a Democrat president became buzz in the Uppers, was around 1979, when Jimmy Carter, himself a teetotaler, seemed bent on destroying Happy Hour for everyone else. Oh, there was chitchat about Bill Clinton in the mid ’90s, but sodomy and rape put a real damper on cocktailing.
So it was particularly pleasant to see Maureen Dowd lay pipe on Barack Obama’s bum in her New York Times column this week.
FORE! Score? And seven trillion rounds ago, our forecaddies brought forth on this continent a new playground, conceived by Robert Trent Jones, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal when it comes to spending as much time on the links as possible — even when it seems totally inappropriate, like moments after making a solemn statement condemning the grisly murder of a 40-year-old American journalist beheaded by ISIL.
I know reporters didn’t get a chance to ask questions, but I had to bounce. I had a 1 p.m. tee time at Vineyard Golf Club with Alonzo Mourning and a part-owner of the Boston Celtics. Hillary and I agreed when we partied with Vernon Jordan up here, hanging out with celebrities and rich folks is fun.
Now we are engaged in a great civil divide in Ferguson, which does not even have a golf course, and that’s why I had a “logistical” issue with going there. We are testing whether that community, or any community so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure when the nation’s leader wants nothing more than to sink a birdie putt. …
Yet it is altogether fitting and proper that I should get to play as much golf as I want, despite all the lame jokes about how golf is turning into “a real handicap” for my presidency and how I have to “stay the course” with ISIL. I’ve heard all the carping that I should be in the Situation Room droning and plinking the bad folks. I know some people think I should go to Ferguson. Don’t they understand that I’ve delegated the Martin Luther King Jr. thing to Eric Holder? Plus, Valerie Jarrett and Al Sharpton have it under control. …
And so forth…
Well, it’s a clever take on something conservatives have known since 2009: that this president is lazy and unconcerned with anything that gets in the way of Barack Obama’s good time at the expense of the American public.
You should read it all here.
There was a time when I would have paid a sous-chef to spit in Dowd’s gazpacho; nowadays I rarely read her.
But one does have to wonder if Barack Obama hasn’t snubbed her at one time or another on one of his and Michelle’s lavish date nights in Manhattan.
I mean, how do you sit at a laptop for nearly seven years and ignore the hollowness beneath the man’s shiny exterior, all along whittling away at the valid concerns of his detractors? Not to mention, no president in history has violated his oath of office more blatantly or constantly than Obama.
And, this is America, where anyone can wake up in the morning and smell the coffee burning.
