Obama Goes from Issuing Sanctions on North Korea to the Golf Course

According to his Friday schedule, shortly after announcing sanctions against North Korea, President Obama once again took in a relaxing round of golf.

“The president’s motorcade arrived at Marine Corps Base Hawaii at about 10:20 a.m.,” the Honolulu Advertiser Star reported on Friday. “Obama is apparently trying to get a round in at the Kaneohe Klipper course before the heavy rains forecast for Friday afternoon and evening.”

Obama also spent his 14th day vacationing in beautiful Hawaii with a call to Senate Democrat leader Harry Reid, who severely injured himself in an exercise equipment accident, and by performing his own morning workout routine.

In a flourish of foreign policy aplomb, Obama invokes sanctions against North Korea to punish the nation for the Sony data hacking (which some sources are now saying the Hermit Kingdom didn’t commit), while, on the other hand, he insists that sanctions against Cuba are no good.
