Obama Golfs, Leaves Martha's Vineyard

If it's Sunday, Obama must be golfing.

No surprise. Obama was on the golf course yesterday.

Of course, the fact that Obama is shockingly disengaged as the leader of the Free World is ignored by the Leftist media for the most part.

We're supposed to focus on Obama's "rare move."

President Barack Obama is getting off the island.

In a rare move for him, the president took a break in the middle of his Martha's Vineyard vacation to return to Washington on Sunday night for meetings with Vice President Joe Biden and other advisers on the U.S. military campaign in Iraq and tensions between police and protesters in Ferguson, Missouri.

The White House has been cagey about why the president needs to be back in Washington for those discussions. He's received multiple briefings on both issues while on vacation. The White House had also already announced Obama's plans to return to Washington before the U.S. airstrikes in Iraq began and before the shooting of a teen in Ferguson that sparked protests.

Part of the decision to head back to Washington appears aimed at countering criticism that Obama is spending two weeks on a resort island in the midst of so many foreign and domestic crises.
It appears that Obama is trying to quiet his critics on the Left.

Taking a little break from his vacation certainly won't change the minds of those of us in opposition to his Leftist policies.

Leaving the island won't erase Obama's litany of scandals and his trail of failures. It won't eliminate the fact that he has used his power to target Americans, his political enemies. It won't alter the reality that Obama has been on a mission to NOT preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.
