Golfing For The Children

For the First Time in My Life, I Am Ashamed of My Country - The Rush Limbaugh Show: "Because "in any enterprise, the chief executive is ultimately accountable for success and failure. Sure, blame Congress -- castigate all 535 lawmakers, or the roughly half you hate. But there is only one president. Even if he's right on the merits, Obama may be on the wrong side of history. Fair or not, the president owns this mess." Mr. Fournier, I disagree with you. He doesn't. That is the whole point. The president does not own this mess. His approval rating wouldn't be 55% if he owned this mess.  
 He is not governing, Mr. Fournier. You've stumbled into this and I'm here to alert you how right you are. You don't even know it. He's not governing. It's all about politics. Congress is being blamed for this. The Republicans are being blamed. Obama is just the outsider trying to fix it all. He's the guy trying to compromise. He even went out and played golf to try to compromise! He even went out and played golf with Tiger Woods to try to compromise, and still the Republicans resist."
And why does everyone think he's golfing for the children? Why because we live on Planet Epsilon:
Expecting Deltas to know what liberty is! And now expecting them to understand Othello! My good boy!
Marooned here in fact...

And you know things are bad when Rush seems to be catching on.  Of course, there' a different Rush that has understood it for a very long time.
