As the World (Literally) Burns, Obama Picks His Favorites on NCAA Tournament, Play Golf, And (Of Course) It's Party Time!

That's how he's been spending his time since Saturday. I guess I am just jealous that he gets to be so relaxed and having fun on the taxpayers' money.

Fish rots from the head.

From White House Dossier by Keith Koffler (3/15/2011):

The Middle East is afire with rebellion, Japan is imploding from an earthquake, and the battle of the budget is on in the United States, but none of this seems to be deterring President Obama from a heavy schedule of childish distractions.

....This morning, as Japan’s nuclear crisis enters a potentially catastrophic phase, we are told that Obama is videotaping his NCAA tournament picks and that we’ll be able to tune into ESPN Wednesday to find out who he likes.

Saturday, he made his 61st outing to the golf course as president, and got back to the White House with just enough time for a quick shower before heading out to party with Washington’s elite journalists at the annual Gridiron Dinner.

With various urgencies swirling about him, Saturday’s weekly videotaped presidential address focusing on “Women’s History Month” seemed bizarrely out of touch.

Obama Friday took time out to honor the 2009-10 Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks. Thursday was a White House conference on bullying – not a bad idea perhaps, but not quite Leader of the Free World stuff either.

This guy is completely AWOL on Libya, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and anywhere else in North Africa and Middle East, as the people who have risen up against their oppressive regimes are being crushed by the regimes. Ditto on deficit reductions. So what does he do now?

More partying, of course.

Koffler continues in the article:

But the fun stuff won’t end anytime soon. On Thursday, the Taoiseach of Ireland will be in town to help the president celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. And then Friday it’s off to Brazil for the start of a three-country Latin American tour.

Anyone gotta celebrate St. Patrick's Day, right?

It is just beyond amazement, borderline disgust and nausea, that there are still 43% (total approve) of Americans who support this man, according to Rasmussen.
