Roll Call’s Steven Dennis does have a point. I certainly wouldn’t look good if all of those Congressmen demanding to be consulted on a strike in Syria were photographed lounging on the beach this weekend while the president slips on a suit and tie on a Saturday to announce his plan to seek congressional approval. That would be like catching Secretary of State John Kerry out on his yacht while Egypt burned, or learning that rookie U.N. Ambassador missed an emergency UN Security Council meeting on Syria because she was at a comedy film festival in Ireland.

Sen. Marco Rubio was among those asking that Congress be called back into session immediately rather than waiting until Sept. 9.

In the meantime, the president and vice president aren’t letting a beautiful Saturday afternoon go to waste.

    Oh, I guess he’s got the economy fixed too, praise de Lawd!

    And from The Duffel Blog:

    Department of Defense and White House officials praised the actions of the Syrian government for their mass slaughter of defenseless civilians through non-chemical means this weekend.

    “When we heard that there was another incident in a small suburb outside Damascus,” said Pentagon spokesman Maj. Daniel Michaels in a press conference, “There was great consternation that it may have been another use of chemical weapons of mass destruction by the desperate Assad loyalists.”

    Michaels flipped a slide to show a graphic image of dismembered corpses. “Fortunately — after investigation — we found that the population was humanely butchered and bludgeoned by ordinary weapons like machetes and assault rifles.”
    …..
    “The President is greatly relieved at the report that Syrian civilians have once again been victims of conventional wholesale butchery,” White Press Secretary Jay Carney said in a prepared statement. ”We will insist, through force of arms if necessary, with the full might of the United States and our allies, that the Assad regime stop killing civilians in ways we can’t ignore — and resume doing so in ways we can.”

      President Bush’s last round of golf was October 13, 2003, saying, “I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal. I don’t want some mom whose son may have recently died to see the Commander-in-Chief playing golf.”

      Straight out of the playbooks of his radical Communist mentors. Check out the online documentary “The Grinding Down of America” if you need to see how long this strategy has been in play.

      Also, every seriously Progressive POTUS has used a Word War as a means of pushing his Marxist agenda FORWARD both on the global and domestic stages.

    His motivation and actions to get out of being cornered is extremely transparent — and he will pay a heavy price in terms of his MSM and celebrity credibility. US adversaries could make things bad for us (and our allies) over the rest of his “term”. On the other hand, I think the chances of his impeachment and conviction have dramatically increased — if we face an international crisis brought on by our perceived weakness. We have a highly “credentialed” imbecile in the White House — with access to nuclear weapons. Think about it

      My experience with these kind of trolls (and I have no idea what “FLORENCE” said, but it must have been troll-bad), is when they use a photo of a super-sexy young woman, it’s usually some punky teenage boy thinking he’s messing with someone’s head.

    No wonder Obama took so long getting to the podium. He was busy planning another golf trip.

    Good odds that Obama plans a golf trip better than military intervention in Syria. After all, the former is the only thing he puts any effort into… and he still sucks at it.

    You guys just don’t understand what it’s like. When you’ve got a golf game, it’s way too important to put off. You should put off things that don’t need your immediate attention, you know, like the economy and other boring things like that. – Barack Obama.

    IF YOU WERE VIEWED AS POSSIBLY THE WORST PRESIDENT IN HISTORY, surpassing even Jim’ah Cahtah, wouldn’t you have the sense to take extraordinary lengths to keep your disturbing golfing obsession on the QT? Even to the point of building a subterranean course? Not under the Federal Reserve Building of course, it’s about to collapse. Perhaps under the NSA, it’s big enough for a 27 holer and growing.
