New York (Storch Report) — President Obama told the enemy this week that we don’t have a strategy for ISIS or Syria for the grizzly murders and atrocities they are carrying out in the Mideast and threatening to bring to the US and he was absolutely pellucid about it as he promised he would be six years ago.
ISIS knows full well he has a strategy for golf for shortly after he condemned ISIL for beheading a 40-year-old journalist he had a 1 PM tee time at a Vineyard Golf Club. They also know that he has a penchant for fundraising and that he’s pretty good at it.
So today while White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest was fielding the media flack at a press briefing answering questions from the previous day of Obama’s strategic blundering disclosure and the Pentagon was scrambling to come up with a strategy that O said he didn’t have, POTUS bordered Air Force One for fund raisers in New York and Rhode Island.
It’s no secret that this is the Labor Day weekend. And, for the 250 and up in each venue who planned to pony up some $32,000 each to rub elbows with Obama in New York and Rhode Island it won’t spoil their last fling of summer.
But for the other swells, perhaps of some other political persuasion, it throws a monkey wrench into their travel plans.
You see the FAA has issued a no-fly warning that extends for Friday and all day Saturday through Sunday grounding seaplanes to East Hampton, Montauk, Martha’s Vinyard and Nantucket.
Well, I guess that’s alright, the president had his vacation and he did so through multiple crises which didn’t interrupt his plans.
After all $32,000 a pop ain’t no small change, for the Dems coffers.
The thousands of dollars the small charters will loose on the busiest weekend of the year, well that’s another story.
