OBAMA TO PRESS - " WE'RE BUYING SHRIMP GUYS, COME ON!"
Our troops are heading home and we should be celebrating the tremendous victory they have accomplished but the Commander in Chief is too busy golfing, reading books, buying shrimp and shopping to take even one moment to comment about the victory our troops have earned by their sacrifice, blood, sweat, time and effort.
Oh sure, he plans an Oval Office speech next week well after the combat troop withdrawal is complete. At that time he will try and take credit which he does not deserve for their victory and that of George Bush. That is IF he even mentions the word victory. Remember this is the same Barack Obama who when asked about victory in Afghanistan stated that, "winning," was NOT one of his goals. Tell that one to the troops who fight to win everyday!
Million of Americans are still unemployed and the President who claimed he, "would not rest," until anyone who wants a job has a job, has done NOTHING BUT REST, since making the claim. The economy is sliding further in recession and again the " I will not rest," in chief is vacationing and momentarily made a call to his economic advisers only after House minority Leader John Boehner called for the firing of the Obama economic team due to the massive failure of Obama economic policy.
Every President deserves a vacation and a break from the tremendous pressure of the Presidency. In that past when President's vacationed they were still accessible to the press especially when something as important as troops leaving a theatre of war after completing their mission took place. But not Obama. When he goes on vacation it seems the job of being President stops and lays in limbo until he gets his shrimp or whatever else he and the clan are doing.
In the familiar story of the sinking of the Titanic, I wonder what the crew would have thought if they went to Captain Smith to inform him of the situation seeking guidance and orders if the Captain of the ship had responded, " hey I'm heading to the galley for some shrimp, guys come on ." Well the ship of state is sinking and not because an iceberg appeared in the dark and the ship could not avoid it, but because the vacationer in chief has caused the wreck which is sinking the ship of state and all he can say in response is, "we're buying shrimp, guys come on ."
