Poetic license with Obama's tee parties

June 28, 2009

President Obama was on the golf course again on Sunday, and we'll leave it to others to decide whether he ought to be teeing it up so often with the world in turmoil. But one pundit, Asher Embry, has taken notice. Embry, a frequent contributor to The American Spectator, has taken to weighing in politically in verse. Here's his Sunday offering:

*When crisis hits our troubled world, Barack knows what to do.

They're cracking down in Tehran; in Honduras there's a coup.

O's whisked off by the Secret Service; we know where he'll be:

He's at his "undisclosed location" at the 14th tee.*
