Hurricane Irene Sunday: Presidential priorities as Obama golfs while soldiers are laid to rest!

Hurricane Irene
will be hitting at some point today with the rain having started in New York yesterday morning at 10:00AM!

Given that fact it is difficult to know whether I will still have power to post.

In the event that I don't, this article takes a look back at President Obama, our Commander-in-Chief, on the day that some of the victims of the Taliban deadly attack on a Chinook helicopter were being buried.

Neither soldiers funerals, an horrendous US economy, lack of jobs, an earthquake or any other crisis will keep the President from his appointed "rounds" on the golf course (H/T Postal Service creed)!

Hurricane Irene Sunday look at Presidential priorities!

Still, watching our most revered soldiers laid to rest as their Commander-in-Chief putts, seems to prove once and for all the job isn’t just outside his comfort zone, it’s above Obama’s pay grade.

It’s obvious that still unbeknownst to Obama, the Office of the President really does follow him wherever he goes, as does the honor and dignity of every soldier. It comes as no surprise that our Commander-in-Chief golfs, bikes, and hobknobs as the men he is charged with sending into harm’s way are laid to rest. And it comes as no surprise that the soldiers he forsakes make a mockery, even quite inadvertently, of Obama’s incompetence by their very exceptionalism ..."
