Being the president is a fairly difficult job with gobs of responsibility, which is why most Americans don’t mind when the Commander-in-Chief takes a little down time here and there to hit a few on the fairway. The problem is that Barack Obama has more or less moved out of the White House and taken up permanent residence on the golf course, ignoring most of his responsibilities, and making a complete mockery of his office.
While Obama hits the green and wastes taxpayer dollars, former President George W. Bush provides a living demonstration of the definition of class by delivering remarks at the fourth annual Warrior Open golf tournament in Dallas, Texas.
According to Young Conservatives, the tournament features 36 holes and is designed to honor true American heroes: veterans. Bush released a short statement online before delivering his speech at the event saying, “We will crown a champion.”
While the former president certainly had his faults, it’s hard to argue about his love and admiration for the military–something he was famous for during his time in the White House.
Contrast this with President Obama’s attitude toward the military, and it becomes clear he’s not a fan. Obama has repeatedly insulted the men and women of the armed forces by trying to cut their pay, sending active duty members out on tour “pink slips,” and has ignored the advice and counsel of his generals on how to properly deal with global terror threat ISIS.
Hopefully, President Bush’s example will begin to seep into Obama’s pores, snapping him out of his progressive coma and enlightening him to the critical role our veterans play in keeping our nation safe. These amazing individuals certainly deserve more from their Commander-in-Chief.
