MSNBC’s Martin Bashir comes to the rescue of President Obama, defending him from those who are picking on him for golfing and recording shows about NCAA brackets during some pretty tough times all around. Bashir’s defense is this: Oh yeah, well at least he’s not goofing off like Winston Churchill did:
Did MSNBC’s Martin Bashir just compare Barack Obama to Winston Churchill? Yes he did, with Churchill portrayed as a chain-smoking, stogie lover who drank all day and painted landscapes to beat depression while Obama is seen as a man strong in character who has defeated the demon nicotine and shuns alcohol.
Not only is this comparison patently unfair to Winston Churchill, it turns a blind eye to Obama’s predilection for golf and vacations. This Sunday the Obamas are off to Rio for yet another vacation. And even London’s Daily Mail has taken issue with the amount of golf played played by Obama, pointing out that this President has played more rounds of golf in two years than Bush did in eight.
If you’ve never seen Martin Bashir, it’s because he’s on MSNBC at 3 p.m. — more people watched me make breakfast this morning than saw this — but that doesn’t make it any less desperate:
In 2009, Bashir’s co-tingler at MSNBC, Chris Matthews, said that Obama’s approach on Afghanistan was “too much Chamberlain, not enough Churchill,” so maybe Obama should pick up a bottle of Johnny Walker Black Label and some stogies on the way home from the golf course this weekend and not listen to a thing Martin Bashir says.
Speaking of WWII, I wonder what kind of fate would have awaited the world had Obama been in politics then. Thankfully, through the miracle of computer technology, we can now put current figures into past situations to see how history might have changed. For example, here’s Obama with General MacArthur returning to organize the Philippines:
