It’s hard to believe the President would do this after an American citizen was beheaded by radical Islamists

President Obama’s handling of the beheading of American journalist James Foley at the hand of ISIS terrorists just might prove to be the straw that broke the camel’s back. Immediately following the Wednesday press conference in which he condemned ISIS actions, the President hit the links at Vineyard Golf Club in Martha’s Vineyard.

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

“Can that get any worse,” Pat asked on radio this morning. “Just the appearance of that is horrific. But he couldn’t care less. He could not care less. And it’s just despicable to me. Had that been Bush talking about something like that and then going immediately to a golf course, they would have just berated him.”

Since Obama jetted to Martha’s Vineyard earlier this month, liberals have chastised those who have expressed concern over the president of the United States being on vacation in a time where ISIS is exerting more force in Iraq, Israel and Gaza are locked in a deadly conflict, and – right here at home – Ferguson, Missouri is literally on fire in the aftermath of the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

But even those Obama sympathizers were at a loss for words on Wednesday. The Independent Journal Review put together a collection of some of the tweets that emerged once it was confirmed President did indeed go golfing.

CBS News’ Major Garrett was among the first to report the President’s whereabouts:

Not long after, the New York Times’ Ross Douthat chimed in:

Politico’s Dylan Byers seconded that notion:

Another Politico writer, Ben White, also acknowledge the optics of this particular golf outing are pretty bad:

“Think about this: Hundreds of thousands of American citizens are around the country… clicking on something on their Twitter feed allowing them to see an American citizen decapitated on video,” Stu said. “And as they’re doing that, the President is on the fourth hole. It’s incredible to think that he would do such a thing on that type of day… It just looks terrible.”

    Fine by this kid. So the president is supposed to give up having a life because The world is nasty? How is what happens with ISIS going to be affected one way or the other by what President Obama does in his personal.life? Are they going to stop killing people if the President gets bothered? That’s really doubtful, killing is what they do. It’s their “golf game”.

    • James LaBarre

      Actually, yes. That’s part of the job being President. If he doesn’t like it, he can leave.

      • yourpaled

        You tell him, sir.

      • fawnday

        That’s an awfully strange rule. It’s understandable if America had another attack or was at war or something but it seems like presidents should be able to keep up with their personal lives as long as they acknowledge any killings and then get in touch with the person’s family. He did all that. If it’s true about cancelling things then the job of being president and living in the White House is even more claustrophobic-making than we all have been led to believe. Do you suppose President Obama stays in the loop even when he’s on holiday? I’ve heard vacations are never really time off but just a change of scenery.

        • pookieamos

          Fawnday , have you ever played golf before ? Or better yet , have you ever chummed it up on a golf course with your golf buddies ? Please explain how it is that an American president could feel , act and appear to be so damn free care with all that is happening ? No way is it possible….Obama is simply a sociopath who is exhilarated by all the massive chaos that he is instrumental in causing.

          • fawnday

            I’ve heard that important people lay golf diversity than most of us. That not only play but golf is part of he “schmooze” people go through in orde to talk business later on. Besides, the president did what was expected of him when things went down. Let him be prez the way he figures is best for him. If spending only a few minutes doing what needs to be done to keep the country moving then that’s his way of working. President Bush did what he did because that was how he figures was the best way. When you are president you can move the country the way you want.

          • Cavy4Freedom

            no…he went to a ranch that was his home…

      • jam117

        What a wonderful thought!

    • Joshua Davis

      by defending his actions, you condemn the concept of compassion, empathy and grief. Way to go, another defense for Obama while sacrificing a human trait that Liberals supposedly stand for. Which should be your first clue that liars and thieves survive on deception and our Governmentis is full of them

    • Crassus

      He’s supposed to be the President of the United States not Tiger Woods or Arnold Palmer, Junior.

      • soybomb315

        What is it that you WANT Obama to do?

        I think he is already doing too much in the middle east and is responsible for arming the radical islamists….But on the right, all you hear about is complaining that he is not using the military ENOUGH

        • G….h.i

          Oh he’s done enough damage in the Mid East. This president consistently supports the wrong people every single chance he gets. The problem is that his values we’ll he has no values. His intentions are wrong because of his ill view of the world.

          The dreams of my father ring a bell? He’s so brainwashed with his fathers Marxist views that he is now living out his fathers dream of taking down America and throwing Israel to the Muslim swine.

        • WrinkledThought

          Resign himself and his racist administration from office and let the adult’s take over!

        • soybomb315

          But you guys are criticizing him for playing golf….Again, please tell me what you expect him to be doing at this moment in time in the middle east….Also, please let me know the taxpayer cost of whatever additional intervention or bombing you propose.

          If you dont want him to intervene more in the middle east, then dont criticize him for something irrelevent, like playing golf.

          • pfiffi43

            Spoken like a true liberal. He could personally see that the
            world gets together to fight this common enemy By playing golf he shows how disingenuous his words really are.
            He stands there and talks about containment when he really should have used the words “annihilate the worst enemy the world has seen in 808 years”. Only Genghis Khan killed to amass territory. ISIS kills out of pleasure. They are mad dogs.

          • fred

            should we just wait till the terrorist are here again like Bill Clinton did???

          • angela

            If he is willing to do trades, then he should be figuring out who to give up in order to get our guys out. Or he should be getting the right team to extract them by talk or force. That is what he can be doing instead of playing golf. Or play it in a simulator in the basement. No need to leave the job for that long just for R&R or time to gather thoughts. I agree that he needs “some”personal time, but many people work stressful jobs for far more than 4-8 years. He just needs to suck it up and work more.

          • Joshua Davis

            a true smart individual knows his limitations and learns to delegate. So he don’t need to be directly involved in middle east but needs to over see yes, but let the people who are paid for things like military combat to run with the ball.
            We criticize him for immediately playing golf with absolutely no grief shown in his face. Americans are judged, unfortunately, based upon our president and his actions, and his actions say oh well another American dies while our president has negated his responsibilities, oh well lets play golf. there is a wrong way and a right way for everything our heart desires, just seems Obama has no heart or does not use it or just maybe he is honest in his emotions and he really don’t give a crap, either way I have explained enough to find scrutiny in his actions

    • TimL

      Considering that UK PM David Cameron cancelled his vacation over the beheading of an American and had already made a speech when the administration was still trying to decide if the video was real, I’d say our Commander in Chief has his priorities mixed up. He wanted to run for this position knowing that it is more important than any vacation. We also STILL have a marine in prison. Obama also didn’t bother to show up for our General’s death that died in Afghanistan. PRIORITIES.

      • soybomb315

        So you just want him to “do something”?

            Be a LEADER. Hes the President of the United States! Not a King! I’m right wing and i don’t want more war. pretty much all the people i know don’t want war. So you can stop the rhetoric anytime now.

            What we expect from POTUS is respect! What happened was horrific, yet all he seems to care about is his tee time.

            He doesn’t even show respect to our allies.

      • Cavy4Freedom

        he did the same in Benghazi…and when Soviets invaded Ukraine…etc

    • jetgirl

      Taking the job of President is a sacrifice…it’s supposed to be about serving a country you love, not an opportunity to get drunk on power and live like a king. In 2 more years, he can play all the golf he wants, right now he needs to focus on being President, serving this great nation and being a leader (and not one from “behind”)

      • Joshua Davis

        I would have to agree 100%

    • Fran

      Unfortunately Obama has created his own image of Do Nothing and all the Bad issues of the day will just go away. He has weakened America’s image of strength and his policies go from bad to worse. His cabinet of people e.g. Holder who lied to Congress and Lerner who took the 5th and Sec. of State Clinton with her disregard of Benghazi. . Where is Obama’s true birth certificate??.and why are All his college records sealed. If the truth (I prepeat the truth) really came to light Obama should probably not be in the office of the Pres. Why go further???

      • pfiffi43

        Shall we ever learn the truth on all accounts?

    • fred

      shallow aren’t you

      • fawnday

        If you think that my reaction is the same as the president’s about how in that part of the world violence is just normal and death is part of what goes on over there so people need to get over themselves and get back to their regularly scheduled lives as soon as possible is shallow then yes I AM shallow.

        • fred

          thx for making my point…..they are coming over the border as we speak….creating cells throughout our country wake up…your boy Clinton was too busy w/Monika and the so called POTUS is golfing…..GRRRRREAT

    • Ponymomto13

      Fawnday, it’s not that he’s playing golf, it’s that he hasn’t a clue about how to do the job period! I dont like him, but if he had any kind of plan on how to deal with the numerous problems we are seeing, some of which he created, I wouldnt begrudge him fooling and vacationing. He just keeps reacting lamely to each new problem, with no apparent idea how to handle things or act to head them off.
      Even Bush gave up golfing during Iraq and Afghanistan! He said it just didnt seem right to be golfing when loved ones of slain soldiers had to deal with loss.

    • Cavy4Freedom

      when he is finished with presidents’ work…then he can retire and play all the time…

      • fawnday

        You know, maybe President Obama ought to go on TV and show people what a presidential vacation really looks like. Not only do they have an office in the White House but when they are away they keep in touch with staff and have an office in their vacation homes plus there is one in Air Force One. Seeing as this is the age of the internet and computers are small enough to be portable anyone can work anywhere they want. Maybe he also takes advantage of working like that as well. Don’t think presidents have the same time off days that you would when you go on vacation . They don’t. The news shows presidents relaxing because they want to start talk.

  • soybomb315

    Why is it hard to believe? Before Obama we had 8 years of Bush doing similar….OR is this another case of ignoring politically inconvenient history?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TCm9788Tb5g

    • Joshua Davis

      I can lay out the differences for you
      Obama over reaches with executive orders, forced Obama care down our throats with all his lies an propaganda. Obama made the decision against his generals advice to withdraw our troops as we did, creating the vacuum in which allowed hamas and isis to create even more terror to the world.
      Obama increases race hatred in the US by supporting race driven assumptions and being a fool for a leader instead of being an example to American’s abroad.
      should I continue…..there is a difference between incompetent (bush) and fulfilling his own hidden agenda (Obama).

      • soybomb315
        • Cheyren

          It is not “how many” executive orders presidents do. It is more about the type of executive orders they sign. Obama’s executive orders have been way more dangerous and costly than the minor ones done by other presidents. Signing executive orders to change his signature health care law so it suits his cronies and not being allowed deport the immigrants, is much more harmful and costly to the country than a few corrections made by other presidents. Obama is trying to be a one man show.

          • AsSeenOnTv

            It never has been about the number.. If that is the case FDR should have been hung with over 3500 of them.

            It has been and always will be about him taking congressional action in an executive order.. He supersedes his powers.

          • Watch it

            Exactly. That losing leftist tactic about how many EOs were signed is a faulty argument, a logical fallacy. But then the left isn’t kown for logic.

          • pfiffi43

            And failing! But right you are, it is what kind of executive orders were signed, but unfortunately, a liberal will not know
            the difference. You can show them all the information and talk until you are blue in the face. They will never get it.

            Hey soybombed-in-my-pants sphincter boy, you took the liberty to throw a chart out in a failed straw man false logic attempt to prop up your assertions. The charts I put there are just reminders of the inconvenient truths of HObama’s complete failure in foreign policy, as a leader and as a commander-in-chief. I don’t make up facts, nor did I make up those charts. I’m not criticizing HObama per se, I’m pointing out your failure at false logic conclusions, ergo any criticism of HObama from those charts is by proxy from your assertions. You make up whatever analphabetic interpretation you wish that will fit inside your shoe size IQ.

          Funny…I don’t recall Bush going golfing after 9/11, or right after a press conference about an American citizen being beheaded. Wonderful message Obama sent to the family of that man. “Hey, your loved one isn’t important enough to keep me off the back nine today. Sorry.”

        • WrinkledThought

          Hey sphincter boy soylyourpantswithabrownbomb, it WAS the European governments that gave the intel on the WMDs to Clinton and it was THEIR their support with THEIR consent, combined with Saddam Hussein’s actions (twice if you include Kuwait), that lead us into the war. It was during Clinton’s term in office when that started. I suggest you research the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998, learn the facts, who voted on it, then get back and report to the adults in the room with your remedial book report. We might give you a cookie to go with your milk prior to your daily afternoon nap. Oh, and we’ll even wash your pacifier off for you.

Obviously not, since you are not addressing that fact.

            As for your attempt at hiding behind Beck’s message, nice try, you sphincter guy. I don’t hide behind anyone’s dress and I will stand out face to face in the streets in broad daylight to push facts back in anyone’s face, especially when they are pushing false logic arguments and anecdotal conjecture as “facts”.

    Obama is just doing what he truly loves to do. We all know by now that Obama gets to pick and choose what he wants to do as commander and chief.

    Obama has no interest in taking on IsIs or Hamas at all. Obama in his own eyes is a domestic president that has isolated us and tied our hands with his orders to stand down and let the whatever happens happen.

    Obama in his own eyes is above the law and because of his brilliant perspective is above the laws and above any other official in Washington.

    Because he Obama is so in tuned and informed he is able to calm the tides of war by stopping the war with his own words lol.

    Since Obama healed the waters then I guess this talk of global warming should cease.

    Where are the trumpeters? Where are the harpers harping? Where are those wise men with gifts to give beloved Obama?

        Why is people that defends Obamas failed policies seems to isolate each incident?

        It has more to do with Obamas view of the world period. Every single time we have a disaster under his watch he’s out golfing or he’s MIA.

        even when this guy is physically in the White House his head is somewhere else. This guy gets his news from MSM and yet he has a staff dedicated to addressing him and on stand by around the clock.

        This guy is far from a traditional American president and he is one of a few weirdos to have served as commander and chief.

        Your talking about a guy who has MBH members serving In his administration. Either this guy is completely dumb or he’s a malice SOB.

        Every single incident under Obamas watch is Obamas problem and yet every single time he’s either made questionable remarks or he’s done questionable things as commander and chief.

        I’m sure over half American voters have questioned this presidents motives at some point.

        The problem with you guys you try and paint Bush out to be the worst president ever and yet poll numbers consistently says other wise.

        Carter was number one for being the worst Us president in American history and now Obama is taking the lead as worst commander and chief.

    ISIS has a new way to get Obama’s attention.

    • WrinkledThought

      ABC News President Ben Sherwood is the brother of Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall – a top national-security adviser to President Obama. Ben Sherwood ordered this ABC fluff piece as a distraction away from HObama’s rude inconsiderate cold heartless narcissistic vacation time at the greens.

      HObama was too busy playing golf to attend the honorable services at Arlington to lay Maj. Gen. Greene to rest, a high level Military staff member. HObama is allegedly the “Commander-in-Chief”, but has never displayed any capacity of that position. Not in decorum, not in leadership and certainly not as a compassionate human. This grotesque murder of a non-military unarmed journalist only inconvenienced him, as the media clamored for this brutality to be addressed, and he “interrupted” his vacation to feign “indignation” to then immediately go back to his golf game back at Martha’s Vineyard (I wonder if Ben Sherwood joined him there afterwards). He didn’t feign “indignation”, “interrupt” his vacation or interrupt his golf time to even acknowledge the loss of a great American General!

      I’m sure all this is nothing more than as yet another inconvenience “bump in the road”. I’ll bet this latest exposure and public criticism of his egregious addiction to golfing and failure as a president has him really TEE’D OFF!

And our Secretary of Defense who looks and acts like he is stoned is an embarrassment. I have to conclude one of three things. Is Obama intentionally destroying America or is he the most under qualified to hold the office or does he not give a damn? Or all of the above? What has become of the U.S. Marine that is being held against his will in a Mexican Prison? And Obama finds time for fun, games, and laughter.

  • Elena

    No big surprise. Foley’s murder means nothing to the narcissist in chief.

  • walkintruth

    What I don’t understand is Obama did a swap of prisoners so we get one prisoner for like 5 of theirs. Why didn’t he help this man back then? He is sending the wrong message to the radical Islamists. Personally I believe he is the fifth column that works defeating an enemy from within.

    This came to me more than a few times yesterday. Just wanted to share what kept coming to me. I believe what we are seeing happen in the Middle East and of course Israel will make its way here soon.

    Psalm 2 King James Version (KJV)

    2 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

    2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying,

    3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

    4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.

    5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.

    6 Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.

    7 I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

    8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.

    9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.

    10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.

    11 Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.

    12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him.

      24:4 Take heed that no one deceives you. for many will come in my name, saying, “I am the Christ”, and will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and….earthquakes in various places. All these are but the beginning of sorrows. Then (speaking to believers in Christ) they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. And then many will be offended, will betray one another and will hate one another. Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved. And this good news of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come. 21 Then there will be great tribulation such as has not been seen since the beginning of the world, no, nor ever shall be.29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 32 Now learn the parable of the fig tree: when its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. So you also when you see all these things know that it is near…even at the doors! Assuredly, I say to you that this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place. =Matthew, Are we there yet?

    This is nothing new here. How many times have you used the expression “the straw that broke the camel’s back”? Obama just had to make an appearance, that’s all, then rush away for his golf outing. Besides, maybe he also doubts the veracity of this video, as it could have been staged. I remember in my youth my dad and I would slaughter chickens for food and in cutting their throats more blood spewed from those chickens than in this video.

It is clear to anyone not too politically correct to say what most are thinking , Obama is clearly worry free from anything happening in this world…..He simply does not care and in fact , I believe this was his and his puppet masters designed goal to begin with ….CHAOS and destruction of world peace….Listen to Hagels words….They want to now go into Syria to supposedly contain ISIS while going into Syria will lead to WWIII. This was the goal all along.

    • pookieamos

      Responsibility —

    • G….h.i

      They just wanna overthrow Assad. Obama gave the rebels IsIs leverage by supporting them in their attempt to overthrow Assad this whole thing is a smoke screen and I do believe even though I completely dislike Assad I believe Obama is attempting to kill Assad like he did the other tyrant in Libya.

      The thing about ISIS is that Obama allowed ISIS to gain momentum and allowed them pretty much to invade Iraqi villages.

      Obama secretly supports IsIs but now he’s having to show force on behalf of America to make himself look legit.

      The Arab spring Obama fully backed was the Caliphate and we know the Obama and the MBH are working the Middle East. Look at Hamas a sect from the MBH. The plan is to radicle change the Middle East because it’s all about religious domination just like the ancient days.

      Obama I’m telling you is the enemy from within.

      Obama has had his eyes on Syria for a while now and it’s funny how he failed to act right away when the Iraqi Christians was close to death. Now he’s pushing for intervention in Syria.
      This guy isn’t that hard to figure out you just have to know what to look for and who he befriends.

    I am in no way supporting Obamas complacency in these times, but is this significantly different from Bush continuing to read a children’s book after being told about the attacks on 9/11?

    • independent thinker

      In a way yes it is different. First Bush was in the middle of reading the book when 9/11 happened so he was finishing what he started. Second, it is my understanding that the SS wanted Bush to go hide in a high security hole for a few days and Bush refused insisting on finishing reading the book. Obama made his statement then went to the golf course to start his round he was not in the middle of it.

    While the West feigns an adversarial position regarding ISIS, it was the West itself that created it, specifically to confront the Iranian arc of influence stretching from Tehran, through Baghdad, Damascus and along the Mediterranean in Lebanon.

    The elimination of ISIS and other terrorist organizations fighting under or alongside its banner without first achieving regime change in Damascus would effectively mean defeat for the United States and its collaborators in the Middle East.

    To intervene before the deathblow is delivered to NATO-backed terrorists in Syria and before the tide is turned against them in Iraq, the global “Powers that be” may attempt to provoke, stage, or otherwise create a pretext to militarily intervene in Syria, and expand its operations in Iraq.

  • ThisIsSoDumb

    You’ve got to be kidding me. He’s the President of the United States — crazy people do crazy things every day around the world and he’s expected to respond; so he did, he got the balls rolling at DoD to draft a response and ramped up the intelligence community to evaluate the options. Then he made a statement saying everything he’d done, and mobilized the State Department to handle the PR side. The man doesn’t have to personally attend to every thing that happens ALL the time, and is usually up 18 hours/day or more dealing with everything on his plate. I personally want a President who takes the time to relax and get his head straight now and then so that he can be effective when he’s in the office. And don’t think he’s not getting briefings all the time, and constantly issuing directives to staff and hearing from advisers, because he is. I’m sorry Glenn Beck has to be so petty as to call him into question for playing some golf, it’s ridiculous. . . . OH, and guess who spent more time vacationing than any president in U.S. history? GEORGE W. BUSH! Meanwhile thousands of Iraqis and hundreds of U.S. military personnel were dying each month — because of ridiculous, unfounded foreign policy decisions he’d made — while he kicked it at Crawford Ranch. Did FOX give him crap then? No, they didn’t. A terrorist organization goes on the rampage in Iraq and Obama is supposed to drop everything, but meanwhile the last bonehead president decides to take over Iraq, causing many more lives lost, and yet he’s okay to vacation as he pleases? Give me a break, FOX, even for your low standard of “news” coverage you’re losing your touch.

    • peterp77

      YOU are so dumb. Bush had the decency to stop playing golf when US troops were in harms way. And parroting the left-wing meme Bush’s time at Crawford was vacation time is dishonest. Crawford was his office away from the WH and he even met world leaders there.
