President Barack Obama steers the cart with his golfing partner, Vice President Joe Biden, left, as they finish 18 holes at the Fort Belvoir Golf Club together on Father's Day, Sunday, June 21, 2009.
Think about the howls of outrage from the Left if George W. Bush played golf while people were being shot dead on the streets of Tehran. (hat tip Katherine)
The thing is, Bush would never have played gold while people were being summarily executed in the streets of Tehran. Never. Only a degenerate would.
The previous day ………………..
…………….a ride in the presidential motorcade to get frozen custard from The
Dairy Godmother on Saturday afternoon. Twelve dark vehicles wound thru
small side streets to the Del Ray section of Alexandria, Virginia, a
suburb of Washington.
Liz Davis, owner of the frozen custard shop, said she had about 4
minutes of “lag time” between knowing she would have “a visitor” and
the President walking in with his daughters.
Although the flavor of the day was posted as butter pecan, the
President ordered a small cup of vanilla frozen custard with hot fudge
and toasted almonds. (ABC News)
Obama didn’t have to make a photo op out of his trip to the ice
cream store. But he did, and it represents a political tone deafness
that opens him up to ridicule.
Just as we see images coming from Iran, they see images coming from
America. What is going to happen if the revolution succeeds, and the
new leadership looks back on what the American president was doing
while they were dying for freedom?
They were being slaughtered while Barack ate ice cream. It will be hard for them to avoid remembering that image.
Next time Barack wants to take his kids out for ice cream while
young people are dying while trying to unseat our common enemy, perhaps
he shouldn’t turn it into a photo op.
