A few weeks after returning from 17 days and $4 million worth of Oahu vacation, Michelle sent via Twitter cupid-day affections to her lover who’s golfing in California. It’s President’s Day weekend and Barry is in the drought-stricken desert resort area of Palm Springs. The president is there to putt-putt around a green that requires four times more water per day than the average American golf course.
Before judging the insensitivity of golfing while ISIS burns 17 Kurds alive in cages, perhaps golfing in Sunnylands is Obama’s cryptic way of commiserating with high heat and parched tongues. On the flip side, if the first lady and her daughters should suddenly show up in Aspen, which is a February tradition, Michelle will merely be commiserating with the frigid Northeast.
Either way, kudos to hubby Obama, who, before hitting the links at the aptly named Rancho Mirage, exercised his usual executive efficiency by ‘squeezing’ in a $10,000 per-person San Francisco fundraiser. In attendance were 60 Democratic Party loyalists who were treated to a generous helping of presidential delusion.
The theme of the president’s pre-golf fundraising comments concerned an area he excels in – “cynical politics.”
By Obama’s definition, “cynical politics” result from representatives in Congress trying desperately to thwart a renegade president’s effort to destroy a Constitutional republic -- that, or any effort by elected officials to represent the citizenry who collectively disagree with most of what this truly contemptuous individual is imposing on America.
Yet, as usual, the president ignored reality and implied to Democratic stalwarts that the only reason his party lost the Senate in November was not that America disagreed with the direction he was taking the country, oh no! According to Obama, poor voter turnout was a reflection of the public’s displeasure with a faction of the GOP that refuses to lie down, roll over, and submit to his radical left-wing agenda.
