EDGARTOWN Mass. (Reuters) - President Barack Obama delivered a somber statement on the death of American journalist James Foley after a video emerged showing Foley's grisly execution by Islamic State militants. Then Obama proceeded directly to a golf course to play 18 holes.
That juxtaposition of events on Wednesday drew Obama a fair amount of criticism as he tries to juggle the U.S. response to rapidly unfolding world crises while taking some time to relax during a two-week August vacation that has been frequently interrupted.
"Bam's Golf War," blared the cover of the New York Daily News, showing a picture of the smiling president behind the wheel of a golf cart, while Foley's parents grieved over their son in a smaller photo lower on the page.

He is just flipping the bird to white America! It is just another “I won” moment. Partie on!
There is no defending this feckless coward.
I think he’s in so far over his head and it’s now dawning on him. He can’t deal with the pressure of being POTUS every day so he runs away to the golf course to try to deal with it. Just like a little kid that gets overwhelmed and hides under his bed for a while.
Relax from WHAT? Certainly not form overwork or stress.
That’s exactly right. And he picks the whitest game from the waspiest enclave on the planet. No coincidence.
-— Bam’s Golf War,” blared the cover of the New York Daily News -—
Pure tabloid poetry.
The Soulless One certainly deserves it.
To honor James Foley, Obama did not take any Mulligans after returning to the course to finish the round. He was quoted as saying “It was brutal, but I had to do something to show some respect for Foley’s sacrifice.”
Affirmative action runs into the Peter Principle wall.
This happened at Columbia and Harvard ... that's why his grades and attendance records are not available. Obama is a failure at every endeavor he's undertaken ... yet thru the enthusiastic support of the liberal media he managed to achieve the highest political office in the land.
For every ‘slice’ by ISIS, Obama returns 10!
Bammy is a Choomin’ Slacker. AS ALWAYS.
ValJar is busy flailing as POTUS.
... most notably by an expensive two-day return trip to Washington to attend a stag* party.
When the muslim boy Hussein talks about the ‘19th hole’ it ain’t about the golf course’s COCKtail lounge...........................IT’S REGGIE’S!!!
I have to ask this;
What is the long game with this clown and his posse? This bunch always has a long game, and I am trying to figure out what that is.
I suspect that impeachment is what he is driving for...and once impeached he can then foment CW2 to drive martial law.
This may be a bit of a tin foil hat stretch, but you have to look at the long game...where are they trying to go, and how are they going to get there.
We know that they hate the USA, they detest the Constitution, they hate white people, etc.
The R’s have already stated that impeachment is off the table, so he figures that like a child he can gain the attention if he misbehaves badly enough. If they don’t do anything about it, then what the hell.keep going.
