Come hell or high water (2 phenomena that the midwest and south have been experiencing lately, not to mention the troops that were honored today) TheOne, believe it or not, went golfing. Just hours after he laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns and met with military families, he’s hitting the links.
This guy is beyond cold, beyond callous.
Imagine this is 4 or 5 years ago and this were George Bush. Would the press have turned a blind eye to this? I think not. In fact, as all of us know, Bush gave up golf while in the White House out of respect for our troops and their families. And like a real man, he kept his word.
While in England, the Obamas met the royal newlyweds. Duchess Kate wore an off the rack $300 dress and the self appointed American Queen wore a designer dress worth over $25o0 or maybe it was over $3000 – I just know it was way out of line. The Brits are facing economic hard times, just as we are and their newest royal is setting a tone of austerity that our leaders’ wives could take a lesson about. I remember when Nancy Reagan replaced the White House china with private donations (no tax dollars were used) and she was crucified in the press for being extravagant. But once again, the current first lady can wear expensive designer clothes and feed the homeless in $540 sneakers and employ non-American designers and it’s all OKAY.
