Just hours after Barack Obama told the world that he didn’t “want to put the cart before the horse” and that he doesn’t “have a strategy yet” to deal with ISIS, it was reported that Obama “changed his plans for Friday and returned to Washington late in the evening after fundraisers in New York and Rhode Island, instead of overnighting in New York as originally planned,” according to the Associated Press.
White House press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters Obama decided that he wanted to “sleep in his own bed, do a little work tomorrow, spend some time with his family” before traveling back to New York on Saturday afternoon to attend a wedding for Sam Kass, Obama’s personal chef and liberal MSNBC host Alex Wagner.
Obama headlined three fundraising events on Friday and two more New York fundraisers for the debt-ridden Democratic National Committee. Including this weekend’s, that brings Obama’s fundraising total to 44 this year and 403 since he took office.
However, Obama is having a good ol’ time while ISIS, the terror group he called a “cancer,” continues to slaughter, slash, and burn its way to a caliphate, and while Russia invades a sovereign country.
But no one is surprised by Obama’s lack of leadership, or at least no one should be.
While there was a crisis of illegal aliens flooding over the U.S.–Mexico border, Obama fundraised in Texas. He vacationed, hiked, partied and played golf at Martha’s Vineyard while Ferguson, Missouri went up in flames. So of course, even after the televised beheading of an American citizen and in the midst of Putin’s brazen aggression, Obama is just living the good life.
Thankfully, there are only 874 more days until our national nightmare is over.
