As world and national events unfold, President Barrack Obama has an uncanny skill for giving the appearance of going on vacation and putting out the “Do Not Disturb” sign to the people.
Now comes U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron who cut his summer vacation short today after the release of the disgusting video of ISIS beheading American journalist James Foley.
Cameron’s office described the video as “shocking and depraved”. The PM packed up and returned to London like a good leader should.
Meanwhile, the president still sits in his Martha’s Vineyard mansion. Maybe he’s up. Maybe he’s sleeping in. Who knows?
What we do know is the president — whether it is an accurate assumption or not — gives us all the impression that he cares more about his vacation than ISIS … Israel … Ferguson … Ukraine … the economy … etc, etc, etc.
PS: In 2008 on the campaign trail Obama promised that he wouldn’t take vacations as president. He understood that 24/7 work was part of the proposition. Brother and sisters, that didn’t last long.
