Where is Obama?

23 Mar

It’s been a tough couple of weeks for Obama.  He doesn’t even bother to get Congressional approval before bombing Libya (don’t tell Joe).  He doesn’t even stick around to talk about it with Congress, much less get approval.  No, no….he was off to Brazil!

Although, he was able to get his NCAA brackets filled out before leaving the country.

And he did manage to play golf for the 61st time.

$30,800 per person fundraisers for his reelection campaign are all squared away too.

But, in Obama’s defense, there’s really not that much going on.  All that is going on is real unemployment (U6) is above 16%, we just entered our third war in the Middle East by bombing Libya, a major earthquake just rocked Japan and they are dealing with major issues at one of their nuclear plants, Democrats are begging Obama to lead on the budget,  gas prices are skyrocketing (with food prices following suit), foreclosures are at an all time high, home values continue to drop,  and school systems around the U.S. continue to fail our children.

Nope.  Nothing going on at all.

WSJ has a recent piece titled President ‘Present‘, where they state”

One knock on Barack Obama in the 2008 election was his record as an Illinois state senator, where he repeatedly ducked tough issues by voting “present.” It seems old habits die hard.”
