As Twitchy reported, Obama made the enraging claim that the reason he should not have golfed after his presser on the beheading of James Foley was due to “optics.” That was his lesson learned: He’s just not mindful enough of the “theater of politics,” you see.

Ah, the days of yore! Speaking of days of yore, Fox News’ Ed Henry crushed the absurd claim with one easy reminder:

A good exit point, though:

Yep. Everything everywhere ever is all about him.
