Let’s play a game. We’ll call it: What would have happened had Barack Obama worn golf spikes?
It goes like this: Imagine there’s a tragic shooting in Virginia. We’ll say, oh, a dozen people die. And the next day there’s a church service to remember the victims. And the President of the United States decides to attend, because, well, he is the President of the United States, and these are the type of events leaders attend.
So, let’s say Obama attends. But first—before showing up—he plays golf. On the day immediately following a horrific slaughter of innocents, he tees up 18 holes in the state where these people were killed. Then Barack Obama arrives for the church service—in his golf spikes.
And stays for 16 minutes.
What would people be saying?
PS: Next level—Barack Obama beats John McCain in the 2008 Presidential election. He then makes a trip to Japan, and the White House insists a tarp be thrown over a ship named after McCain. What would people be saying?
