There is no mistake too small, no error too minor for the Deflector-in-Chief to dodge the blame.
The White House optics problem started when the story spread that two military lovebirds, Army Captains Natalie Heimel and Edward Mallue Jr., were forced to move their dream wedding off a beautiful Hawaiian golf course after the president decided he wanted to play through.
The pen and phone president had to get on the phone.
“Listen, congratulations on your wedding,” Obama said in the call. “I feel terrible. Nobody told us and had they mentioned they were going to have a wedding on the 16th hole we would have skipped the 16th hole, I hope the wedding went OK anyway,” he added.
If only somebody had told Obama he was about to commit a massive PR gaffe. (Well, that’s what it would be if he suddenly became a Republican.) He’s got all these people working for him, telling him about all the stuff that’s going on around him, and yet he never seems to know anything.
That’s what makes him such a great president.
Now watch this drive!
