I think any of us who has worked with one of these dead weights can vouch for the fact that being a “historic” (read affirmative action assisted) office holder means never having to say you’re sorry for being a worthless slacker. From Washington Times:
Since returning from a trip to Southeast Asia on Nov. 21, President Obama has managed to play three rounds of golf but has met face to face only once with House Speaker John A. Boehner, the man with whom he is trying to strike a deal on taxes and spending that could prevent another recession.
With the deadline for averting the “fiscal cliff” less than three weeks away, the president’s schedule this week is exceptionally light. It does not include any time on the links with Mr. Boehner, Ohio Republican, who is also an avid golfer.
Yes, as the headline says “For Obama, trimmings all on holiday schedule.” “Fiscal cliff?” Syria exploding? No worries! Let the endless round of celebrity-studded soireès continue as a prelude to the 3-week Hawaiian vacation.
It’s good to be the king.
