"No laziness going on here!" according to Keith Koffler's White House Dossier article, Obama Lobbying Congress From Sand Trap. Koffler reports that President Obama played golf again on Saturday, September 7, 2013.
What 'chemical weapons attack?' What 'responding military action?' And what happened to Obama's 'intensive Syria resolution lobbying campaign?'
Didn't Obama just return from St. Petersburg, Russia only hours before starting the golf game?

Just last Saturday, August 31, 2013, minutes after a rare press conference in the Rose Garden to publicly stress the urgency regarding the Syria chemical attack, Obama and Biden immediately left --- to play GOLF! Mike Flynn's article, Obama Hits Golf Course After Announcing National Emergency, describes the odd response of the president.
The 'Syrian chemical weapons attack' controversy has continued to dominate the news this week.
In the Huffington Post article, Obama Faces High-Stakes Week On Syria, Deb Riechmann quotes Secretary of State Kerry describing the urgency of military action toward Syria, "This is growing, not receding in terms of the global sense of outrage of what has happened."
Fox News states today, "More Dems Balk at Syria Strike Plan." The Associated Press quotes in the article, WH goes all-out to win Syria strike support ahead of Tuesday speech, "The White House announced the president will do a round of interviews Monday afternoon with CNN, Fox, PBS and the three major networks that will be taped, then aired on their evening news broadcasts." In addition, Obama will address the nation Tuesday night.
The Associated Press also states, "MoveOn was one of Obama's biggest campaign supporters, but Anna Galland, its executive director, told AP Saturday that the organization is following the will of its members. During a recent 24-hour vote, more than 70 percent of MoveOn's members came out against military strikes, she said."
No problem. Always time for rounds of golf.
Not to worry -- the teleprompter will be 'ready to go' on both Monday and Tuesday.
Keith Koffler also reminds us, "It’s Obama’s 32nd time playing this year and the 143rd time of his presidency."
