Obama's Priorities

Sphere: Related Content

It took Obama over two days to speak about the attempted bombing of a US airline in what has been proved to be an al-Qaeda plot and more than that to do anything in support of the Iranian students who are fighting and dying an oppressive regime. Important things like this take time and warrant careful consideration you know, plus there's that daily round of golf to get in.

But a minor incident (according to Drudge, no link as yet) involving a golf crony's son and a surfboard involves an emergency return to the million dollar oceanfront mansion:

KAILUA, Hawaii (AP) - President Barack Obama has abruptly ended a round of golf and sped toward his family's vacation home for what is being described as a "personal matter." An ambulance was seen speeding toward their compound.
White House aides said the speedy departure and return to the president's home was not a matter of national security or because of a threat to Obama's safety.

Obama was playing golf when reporters who travel with him were quickly assembled for a return to the first family's neighborhood.

Journalists saw an ambulance speed past with its lights on, heading toward the end of Obama's street. The ambulance would have passed through a security checkpoint at the end of the street.
Priorities folks, priorities.
