Why is it every single time Barack Obama tries to take a teensy little break from the 24/7 (okay, nine-to-five) rigors (well, at least irritations) of leading (all right, recalibrating) the free world (from behind), somebody calls for suuummmthing?
Can’t you guys see the man is ressssting …?
Listen, 13 people have drowned in So. Louisiana—Barry gets it.
But what do you people want? He can’t exactly raise the dead, you know!
Yes, but that was hyperbole …
The editorial board of a Louisiana newspaper has called on President Obama to cut his vacation in Martha’s Vineyard short to visit the devastation from recent flooding in the state.
The Advocate, a Baton Rouge-based paper, criticized Obama for spending his multi-week vacation in wealthy Martha’s Vineyard while Louisiana experienced historic flooding that has killed at least 13 people and displaced tens of thousands more in the state.
“Last week, as torrential rains brought death, destruction, and misery to Louisiana, the president continued his vacation at Martha’s Vineyard, a playground for the posh and well-connected,” the Advocate wrote.
The editorial also compared Obama’s response to the crisis to the federal government’s poor response to Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
And if the president can interrupt his vacation for a swanky fundraiser for fellow Democrat Hillary Clinton, as he did on Monday, then surely he can make time to show up for a catastrophe that’s displaced thousands.
The optics of Obama golfing while Louisiana residents languished in flood waters was striking. It evoked the precedent of the passive federal response to the state’s agony in 2005, a chapter of history no one should ever repeat.
The editorial board did compliment Obama for already declaring the flooded areas national disaster zones, which then allows for federal aid to be rapidly brought to the state.
Obama began his vacation on Aug. 6 and has played at least eight rounds of golf since arriving on Martha’s Vineyard.
There should be an IQ test.
It’s not exactly like he’s off the job?
Maybe now you short-bus mofos will be sorry you’re forcing him out of the White House office and making him retire.
Where he can play golf endlessly into his old age.
With a U.S. Air Force jumbo jet and Secret Service entourage to shuttle him from course to course…
… He doesn’t get to keep the plane?
See? This is what the guy’s been telling us for eight lousy years.
Suck it up, Louisiana.
Barry will get there when he gets there …
Like always …
