Neither rain, nor snow, nor market declines, nor downgrades, nor chopper crashes shall keep President Obama from his appointed tee time

Good thing there are no pressing matters of state to which the president must attend today.

On Friday the United States lost its coveted AAA credit rating [as] Standard & Poor’s downgraded the nation’s rating for the first time since the U.S. won the top ranking in 1917. 18 countries now have a better credit rating than the US.

So where is Barack Obama?

The president has yet to make a statement on the historic downgrade. [But he did go] to Camp David... Dallas Blog reported:

>Obama, a Democrat, enjoys spending time on the golf course on Andrews Air Force Base, which is nearby Camp David. Regardless of circumstances, Obama loves to play golf. The U.S. stock exchanges are plunging and the S&P has just downgraded the credit rating of United States federal government debt. So, how does the President respond to recent developments of the Obama Depression? He plays golf.

Next up: another vacation, this time to Martha's Vineyard -- which, by my count, will be his family's fifth this year.

Hat tip: Trending Right.

Some right wing news/blogger should do an FOI request for any an all photos of Obama signing the debt compromise bill.

That would be PRICELESS campaign fodder !!!

But is this author just INFERRING that Obama played golf because he usually does or did he really play golf?
