After delivering an ardent statement on the execution of James Foley by ISIS militants, President Obama’s motorcade returned to the golf course on Martha’s Vineyard.

That time also includes when he worked from his ranch which many politicians and media officials have said he was actually doing. Similar to what Nixon did with his Oval Office West. The fact is that no one will be able to pick out the exact amount of vacation time Bush took because not all the time in Texas can be counted as work but the majority of it certainly isn't vacation.

Well it mostly looks bad because of how liberals hounded Bush about the same thing. So much so that he literally gave up golfing for the rest of his presidency, worrying about the message it sent, which Democrats loved to pimp.

Unusually emotional, President Obama declared himself “heartbroken” by the brutal murder of an American journalist, James Foley, and vowed to “be relentless” against Islamic radicals threatening to kill another American.

But as soon as the cameras went off, Mr. Obama headed to his favorite golf course on Martha’s Vineyard, where he is on vacation, seemingly able to put the savagery out of his mind. He spent the rest of the afternoon on the links even as a firestorm of criticism erupted over what many saw as a callous indifference to the slaughter he had just condemned.

Obama is actually doing something by way of response to said Islamic nutbags, who, BTW, are a Frankenstein monster created by your hero's insane, idiotic and illegal mid-east interventions. (Whether you agree that the response is adequate or correct or not is another discussion.)

The guy you spent eight years blowing, on the other hand, didn't do squat about the aforementioned "direct threats to American interests" until AFTER 9/11, i.e., after it was too late.

Might want to read up on "Watch this drive." It followed a response to a terrorist attack in Israel. You know, the kind that almost never happen. Are you saying Bush should've intervened in Israel? Seems kinda odd, considering what you've said about the latest round of Hamas' terrorism there.

Obama is a joke. His plan is to do nothing about anything.

Even hacktastic Charles Krauthammer is being forced to admit Obama's current policy in Iraq is working.
Baghdad called President Obama’s bluff and he came through. He had refused to provide air support to Iraqi government forces until the Iraqis got rid of their divisive sectarian prime minister.

They did. He responded.
...
In following through, Obama demonstrated three things: the effectiveness of even limited U.S. power, the vulnerability of the Islamic State and, crucially, his own seriousness, however tentative.

The last of these is the most important. Obama had said that there is no American military solution to the conflict. This may be true, but there is a local military solution. (There must be: There is no negotiating with Islamic State barbarism.) And that solution requires U.S. air support.
...
Obama was slow to bring American power to bear. And slower still to arm the Kurds. But he was right to wait until Baghdad had gotten rid of Nouri al-Maliki, lest the U.S. serve as a Shiite air force. We don’t know how successful Haider al-Abadi will be in forming a more national government. But Obama has for now wisely taken advantage of the Abadi opening.http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/charles-krauthammer-goal-of-us-airstrikes-is-stopping-the-worst-people-on-earth/2014/08/21/2417619a-2964-11e4-958c-268a320a60ce_story.html
