Oh, the humanity.
Even liberal Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank thinks President Obama is shooting too much golf and might not be paying enough attention to the job we gave him.
Milbank, fortunately, is not your typical liberal. His impishness and insight sometimes get in the way of Party Line adherence.
Why isn’t he as forceful when it comes to say, getting unemployment insurance through, when it comes to getting more of his domestic agenda through – gun control – all the other things where he seems to give a speech and then tiptoe away from it.
If he could be as stubborn as he is about continuing his golf game – about some of his domestic policies – I think we might get some more results.
Well, okay, in that case, keep him on the golf course.
BTW, we’ve been watching Obama’s slavish embrace of his putters and drivers for years around here, and took some crap for it.
Now everybody from Peggy Noonan to Dana Milbank is getting the point: Obama doesn’t understand that appearances matter – that there’s something wrong with feverishly engaging in what is perceived as a rich man’s leisure activity while claiming to be one with the underclass and while men and women are dying for us overseas.
And, given the hours he spends on the fairways, he doesn’t seem to have his priorities quite straight.
