Ice Cream, While Iran Screams
- VP Dick Cheney, August 27, 2002, VFW speech
Father's Day arrived early for the Obamas:
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) — The first family was in the mood for something sweet _ something like vanilla custard, fudge and sprinkles.
On a muggy Saturday just before Father's Day, President Barack Obama took Sasha, 8, and Malia, 10, to The Dairy Godmother, a frozen custard shop just outside Washington.
The president snacked on vanilla custard with hot fudge and toasted almonds in a cup, said the shop's owner, Liz Davis.
Remember the criticism leveled at President Bush while New Orleans "burned"? Petty partisan politics is a bitch, ain't it?
I actually don't begrudge President Obama his vanilla custard with hot fudge.
But certainly the time for voting "present" and golden mean fence-straddling is over. Is he hearing “The Voice of Iran“? The world is looking to leadership. Take a firm stand, Mr. President; and Happy Father's Day!
