Hey,

Barack Obama insults Poland – again

Last week I wrote a piece urging President Obama to attend the funeral of Polish President Lech Kaczynski, the Polish First Lady, and 94 senior officials who perished in the Smolensk air disaster. I noted at the time:

The Obama administration has on numerous occasions failed to acknowledge the importance of Washington’s allies, and has often appeared indifferent, even hostile towards America’s closest friends. It is important at this time of tremendous pain and suffering in Poland, that the President of the United States sends a clear message that the American government and people are with them in heart and spirit.

The White House did subsequently announce that the president would attend the funeral ceremony in Krakow this past weekend, but like many world leaders he was unable to do so due to the grounding of flights over much of Europe.

One would have thought that President Obama might have used the time he would have spent in Poland paying his respects to the Polish fallen. For example he could have visited the recently erected Victims of Communism memorial in Washington, or at the very least have signed the condolence book at the Polish Embassy. But what did he choose to do instead? Play yet another round of golf.

As Joseph Curl at The Washington Times reported:

On a cool but sun-drenched Sunday, the president and three golfing companions went to Andrews Air Force Base to play 18 holes. It is the 32nd time Mr. Obama has played golf since taking office Jan. 20, 2009, according to CBS Radio’s Mark Knoller.

After canceling the Poland trip on Saturday, the White House announced that Mr. Obama had no public schedule for Sunday. He was to have arrived in Krakow in the morning, attend the 2 p.m. funeral and leave for home by 5 p.m., arriving back at the White House after midnight.

Mr. Obama has not gone to the Polish Embassy in Washington since the accident, but Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. both have. There, they signed a condolence book.


Curl also notes that Obama’s predecessor, George W. Bush, gave up playing golf in the aftermath of the Iraq War:

Mr. Obama has played golf far more often than former President George W. Bush. In his eight years in office, Mr. Bush played just 24 times. His last time as president was Oct. 13, 2003. He said in 2008 that he gave up golf “in solidarity” with the families of soldiers who were dying in Iraq.

It is hard to think of anything more insulting to the Polish people on the day they mourned the loss not only of their president but much of their political and military leadership, for the president of the United States to be enjoying a round of golf after canceling plans to attend the funeral. It is yet another disgraceful example of crass insensitivity to a close American ally, which has become the hallmark of the Obama administration’s amateurish foreign policy.

Just eight months on from humiliating Warsaw by pulling out of the agreement over Third Site missile defence installations in Poland and the Czech Republic, the White House has insulted the Poles yet again. This is no minor diplomatic faux pas – it is a second full-blown slap in the face for a key US partner, whose soldiers are currently laying their lives on the line alongside their American allies on the battlefields of Afghanistan.

Why not? Apart from "keeping up appearances" for another head of state, why should he as an individual give two shits about a relative stranger dying on the other side of the world?

It pains me deeply to stick up for Obama, but for fuck's sake, you can't expect him to hold a private wake or something.

Barack Obama plays eight times more golf than George W Bush

The "Bush did it" excuse is wearing thin with Obama. He was supposed to be the anti-Bush, right?

Looks like he's 8 times worse....and he's got 2 more years to go.

NO EXCUSE

As much as I hate Obama, I have a hard time mustering outrage about this. It would be entirely different if he had gone to Poland for the funeral and blew off some sort of official function while there to go play golf, but it isn't like he cancelled his appearance so that he could play golf. He could not make the appearance because of the volcanic ash. I do agree that he should have gone and signed the condolence book at the embassy at a minimum. He should have done this at the same time that Clinton and Biden signed it. However, given the insane demands on the president's time (even when the president has no idea what he is doing), I can't begrudge him the opportunity to take a little time to relax after his events for the day were cancelled. I don't expect any president to do nothing but sleep, eat and work. They have to have some relaxation time in there and this seems like it was a perfect opportunity.

I think that if Obama had done the things that the author of this article suggested, the author would have turned around and bashed him for diverting attention away from the state funeral and making himself the center of attention through publicity stunts.

There are so many legitimate things to hate Obama for that things like this just seem petty. Let's focus on the big reasons.

Maybe Bush isn't very good at golf. That would explain why he doesn't play as often.

Also, I think that nitpicking is silly. Fault him for the big things...like COMMUNISM. Not playing golf...

If I were to attend a funeral for a very close associate and could not make it due to a legitimate reason ( the volcano situation is legit in my book) I would have found a different way to honor the memories of those lost instead of going golfing.

32 times THIS year? and W only went 24 times in his entire presidency, yet people complained about it?

That's embarassing for Zero.

Obama goes golfing instead of attending Kaczyńskis' funeral

US President Barack Obama went golfing at the Andrews Air Force Base yesterday, it was reported, just hours after Poles had laid their late president to rest.

"On a cool but sun-drenched day, the president and three golfing companions head[ed] to Andrews Air Force Base on Sunday to play 18 holes. It is the 32nd time Mr. Obama has played golf since taking office Jan. 20, 2009, according to CBS Radio's Mark Knoller," reported the Washington Times on Sunday.

In an article posted on its website, the newspaper also reported that while US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton and Vice President Joe Biden had taken the time to visit the Polish Embassy to sign a book of condolences, President Obama had not yet taken the time out to do so.

The plumes of volcanic ash that ruined travel plans throughout Europe last week kept other world leaders away from the funeral, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Nicholas Sarkozy - though there was no word as to whether they too had taken to the links.

Other world leaders found ways to attend the funeral, including Estonian Prime Minister Andrus Ansip, who made an 18-hour drive, while Czech Republic President Vaclav Klaus travelled by car and train. Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych also attended.

The late president's close friend, Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili, also managed to attend, flying in from Georgia through Rome.

The Poles care, as the above article shows.

I care. Ogabe is purposefully alienating our allies [UK, Israel, Poland] and embracing our enemies [Iran, N. Korea, Venezuela].

About what and what can't be ridiculed about Obama, I'll borrow the Left's tactic they used against Bush: Ridicule Everything. Criticize Everything. Give not one millimeter of slack.

I actually did read the article and noticed that fact. I also noticed it when it was brought up in earlier posts. However, even though he has played golf 8 times more than Bush did during his 8 year term, I still stand by my position. There has never been a single president that has done nothing but work the entire time they were in office. Being president is a very demanding job and everyone invariably takes breaks. Why slam Obama because he chooses to take his breaks on a golf course, especially when there are many more reasons to slam him. This type of nitpicking is just petty and is almost exactly like what some people on this board were belittling liberals for doing when Bush was president.

He should have signed the condolences book and he should have done that awhile ago. That is a more relevant point than what Obama decided to do when he had some time off because he could not go on his scheduled trip. Focus on the crap that Obama is trying to pass instead of his particular choice in past times.
