Obamateurism of the Day

We’re back for another year of OOTDs, but that doesn’t mean we’re going to skip the candidates from the holidays. Tina Korbe caught the implications of Barack Obama’s 89th and 90th rounds of golf on Christmas Eve and Boxing Day (the 26th) — because when the President takes a day off on the links, it means other people have to work. Over to Melissa Clouthier:
Well, the big deal is that a bunch of Marines had to work–blocking roads and doing other miscellaneous security detail–instead of being home with their families.
Here are some of the comments from the wives of these men. (I am not going to include the link to this page, nor am I going to include names, because I don’t want anyone in trouble. I do, however, have the screen shot and have copy and pasted the comments verbatim.) …
“Because he’s here, I didn’t get to see my husband all weekend, on our baby girl’s first Christmas, so he can have his vacation. So when I can’t get to my house because he wants to play golf it just adds insult to injury and yeah, gets on my nerves. I agree that it’s a sensitive subject for some of us who are more [a]ffected by his being here.” …
I was so angry! They blocked off my driveway… -_-”
“It takes him forever to play too because he isn’t good at it either lol!”
Why not spend Christmas Eve with the family?
Got an Obamateurism of the Day? If you see a foul-up by Barack Obama, e-mail it to me at [email protected] with the quote and the link to the Obamateurism. I’ll post the best Obamateurisms on a daily basis, depending on how many I receive. Include a link to your blog, and I’ll give some link love as well. And unlike Slate, I promise to end the feature when Barack Obama leaves office.
