Ice Cream, While Iran Screams


"The reality is that these times bring not only dangers but also opportunities."
- 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!

I agree. He's had quite a few "when Reagan slept" moments already

I figure that BHO made such a media appearance of going out for ice cream because, media whore that he is, he couldn't stand that CNN had turned to covering Iran more than covering his doings.

Yup..ice cream when Iran's burning.
Expensive dates to NYC when the economy's numbers come out so horribly.
Playing golf during the campaign on the day of Hillary's pretty darned significant and personally wrenching (for her) concession speech.

He is tone deaf to the American people. He does what HE wants to do.

I don't begrudge him ice cream or wanting to take his children out for a scoop of normalcy...(in fact, from what he ordered, he has pretty good taste in ice cream!)..but, really. NOW?
But, what abuot his ordering Pizza from St. Louis or Chicago and having that del'd to the White House?

OUr media's so in the bag, nobody's hearing a word of criticism of THE ONE..that's scary, Sparky. z
