Golf Wars (Limerick)

As a devout liberal, I’ve been pretty disappointed in Obama’s presidency. But the constant complaints about his letting off steam via golf are absurd.

To those who claim Obama’s too indifferent to public opinion, think about this: When no matter what you do you’re under constant (often nonsensical) attack, you might as well do what you want.

And don’t even get me started on the fact that most of the horror we’re embroiled in right now is a direct (or indirect) result of the war of choice in Iraq that George W. Bush (Mr. Vacation himself) lied us into.

Golf Wars (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

When Obama goes golfing, the press
And the pols say the world’s in a mess,
So the prez should not play.
But they’ll bitch come what may.
So he might as well drive off some stress.

    Forget Gitmo, Obama needs to close Wall St [send the crooks to prison]. Bull’s eye! Game, set, match, Mad! No whiffs, knee-knockers, just Gimmee!

    “Constant & nonsensical attack,” Mad? Here’s Borowitz: GOP chief Reince Priebus ripped Prez Obama on Sunday 8/24/14 for consuming 3 meals a day while on vacation in Martha’s Vineyard.

    “W/int’l crises boiling over in Iraq, Syria & Ukraine, it’s unconscionable that the Prez is having breakfast, lunch & dinner,” he said.

    The Wh Hse defended the Prez’ eating habits, noting that his predecessor, Geo. W. Bush, frequently supplemented his 3 meals a day w/an afternoon snack, but Priebus was unmoved by this argument. “It sends a very dangerous message to our enemies to see Prez Obama eating,” he said.

    On this issue are raging and flush.
    But don’t let it trouble you!
    Just think of W:
    900 days “clearing brush”!

    The President, off on vacation,
    Is hardly deserting his station.
    But it’s my impression
    The House in full session
    Is many times worse for the nation.
