And Now, It's Golfing Time (Or Putin +1, Obama 0)

After bringing the world to the edge of WWIII and nearly giving the first order to launch the ironically named Patriot missile, then dramatically punting in the very last second whether to invade Syria to Congress, something he should have done from the every beginning, Obama went on to do what he does best.

Politico explains:

Right after shipping responsibility for authorizing an attack on Syria, President Barack Obama returned to his comfort zone: The golf course.

 

Obama’s motorcade left the White House at 2:30 p.m., about 30 minutes after completing his statement.

 

Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are playing at Fort Belvoir, Va., along with White House trip director Marvin Nicholson and Walter Nicholson, according to the White House.

And so after last month's Snowden humiliation, Russia's Putin just schooled the US golfer-in-chief again. Although, was there ever any doubt?
