It’s good to be the king, especially when you stop doing the job. From a piece I have running in LifeZette.
With his three-day, taxpayer-funded family vacation last weekend to Carlsbad Caverns National Park in New Mexico and California’s Yosemite National Park, President Obama is set to begin the most fun, exciting — and frivolous — seven months of any presidency in modern history.
Are you distressed that the economy is stalled at about 1 percent growth, that job creation at its lowest rate in years, that ISIS is plotting major attacks, and China is flexing its military muscle? Too bad. It’s playtime for Obama.
Obama’s extended diatribe against Donald Trump following the Orlando attacks points to just how self-indulgent this already narcissist president is prepared to be. Instead of trying to unite the country after the worst terrorist attack since 9/11, Obama opted for partisan politics instead. To the extent there will be any work being done at all during the remainder of his presidency, it will be political. So once he’s off the national park hiking trails, the fun really begins on the campaign trail for Hillary. And Obama has proven that his top skill is campaigning.
“I cannot wait to get out there and campaign for Hillary,” Obama said in a video he made for her campaign. Of course he can’t. Because like any leftist insurgent, Obama loves the revolution far more than governing.
There will be campaigning, abundant vacations, and of course, golf. You can read the rest of the piece here.
