“A few months ago, when you were asked what’s the biggest geopolitical threat facing America, you said Russia. Not Al Qaeda. You said Russia. And the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back, because, you know, the Cold War’s been over for 20 years.”
It’s OK, because Obama is taking Russia seriously now. How seriously? He is thinking about canceling his latest vacation. That seriously, OK?
UPDATE: Crisis averted. The vacation is back on.
Local media reports indicate the Obamas will stay at the Ocean Reef Club, a private compound that still enforces a dress code “designed to complement today’s more casual lifestyles while still respecting the Club’s longstanding traditions.” It boasts 36 holes of golf for the President to enjoy and spas and restaurants for his family.
Earlier this year Obama tacked a weekend of golf in California onto a meeting with the king of Jordan at the Sunnyland’s estate near Palm Springs, California. And he golfed regularly on his annual Christmas vacation in Hawaii.
We dodged a bullet there.
UPDATE x2: Thanks very much to Instapundit for the link. What a nice surprise.
