OK, so we know what the media are supposed to do, but do they ever really do it? Richard Grenell certainly doesn’t think so, and we can’t help but agree:
It’s true. Take a gander at this:
The New York Times is on it:
From the NYT’s hard-hitting report:
Mr. Obama’s vacation schedule was nothing if not routine.
He went to the gym at Marine Corps Base Hawaii for a sunrise workout. He played golf nine out of 15 days. And he and the first lady, Michelle Obama, stepped out for dinner at a few of their favorite restaurants: Alan Wong’s, Morimoto Waikiki (twice!) and Nobu Waikiki.
Island Snow, the president’s favorite spot for shave ice — the island’s syrupy, brightly colored and refreshingly sweet version of the snow cone — even had a message board in its back room reminding its employees to “wear Island Snow T-shirts all week long while the president is here!!”
So, knowing that Obamacare sucks as hard as ever, employment numbers are lousy, and the president’s approval ratings are circling the drain, media lapdogs decide to wax poetic about the awesomeness of President Obama’s Hawaiian vacay? Barf. It’s a clown show. And Grenell’s determined to do something about it:
We like the sound of that.
