Obama Golfs After Statement on James Foley

Obama will let nothing stand in the way of his "me" time.

Even the beheading of an American citizen doesn't keep Obama from playing golf.

From the Daily News:

The vacationing commander-in-chief returned to the golf course Wednesday after calling for justice in the brutal killing of an American journalist by ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) terrorists.

Obama also detailed his conversation with the parents of slain hostage James Foley, 40, whose beheading was videotaped and posted on the Internet by his killers.

The president zipped quickly from a local school to a Martha’s Vineyard golf course after his 12:45 p.m. media session. Obama delivered a short statement and took no questions from the assembled media.

“The president walked quietly into the cafeteria of the school, tieless but wearing a blue jacket,” read the latest White House press pool report. “(White House spokesman) Eric Schultz accompanied him.

“Obama stepped to a podium and delivered his remarks, then turned quietly and walked out of the room. The room was silent as he did. Afterward, the motorcade drove to the Vineyard Golf Club.”

The Martha’s Vineyard foursome was filled out by former NBA star Alonzo Mourning, millionaire mogul Glenn Hutchins and longtime Obama pal Cy Walker.
Look at Obama.

He looks pretty relaxed to me. No worries.
