Kerry boating and Obama golfing during the uprising in Egypt was “terrible optics,” according to Reuters columnist David Rohde:

The State Department must agree, or they wouldn’t have felt the need to try to lie about Kerry’s Nantucket sails.

The administration knows these things might look bad to those paying attention, but they don’t give a damn about non campaign related optics.

    A "non-campaign related optic" ? Well I`ll be, I haven`t seen one of those in ages !

    Speaking of bad optics – Barry golfing, or rather, excavating.
    At least when he's golfing he's not spending our money – except for more balls.

    Thanks for posting the vid; I`d heard Barry was a poor golfer, but that shows far worse than I would have imagined. 72 behind, 105 behind, 8th shot on a par 4, quintuple bogey. A commentator in the background said, "Clumsy effort …" (Does he not realize he`s bad-mouthing Teh Won ?).

    I heard last year that he`d improved his game. Gee whiz, how bad WAS he ?

    Maybe he should try giving a speech to the ball.

    Without TOTUS ?

    Actually, he is spending our money – SS details, limo and chauffeur, etc. But I'm guessing you already had that in mind.

    On another front, these folks, Mr. Rohde included, should get a clue. Obama and those around him don't care what we see or think about what they do with impunity.

    He probably does with words that cannot be repeated in a family setting.

  8. SignPainterGuy on July 7th, 2013 11:54 pm

    He got a little "colorful" watching the water shot !

    Surely someone has pointed out to him that the secret to golf is how you address the ball.

  10. SignPainterGuy on July 8th, 2013 11:28 am

    No wonder his balls head off in the wrong direction; all those pre-printed address labels are creating wind resistance !

  11. backwoodsconsr on July 8th, 2013 12:09 pm

    Not to mention the fact that he's trying to send them to the Spaghettisburg address. He gets a little confused when goes off prompter.

    "I come before you to stand behind you to tell you something I know nothing about !"

    For him, that would cover a wide range of topics, and the more important they are, the more likely they are to be on the list.

    The msm, lsm, American Pravda Media are really busy avoiding doing the job they used to relish, that once made them legitimately famous !
