Snarky Obama just can’t resist bitterly complaining from the luxury of a Tuscan golf course. He’s still bitter about the loss of his “party” and subsequently the dissolving of his legacy.
The Hill released this story.
… TMZ reports that Obama was spotted golfing at the Castiglion Del Bosco Resort in Tuscany. It’s unclear who the former president was playing with, but TMZ video shows Obama driving a golf cart around the course.
Here’s how the ex-POTUS is entering the public view:
… In April, he gave his first public speech since leaving office, speaking about civic engagement to a crowd of students at the University of Chicago.
Here’s what he had to say, between holes:
“The one thing that I’m absolutely convinced of is that, yes we confront a whole range of challenges,” he said then. “All those issues are serious and daunting, but they are not insoluble. What is preventing us from tackling them and making more progress really has to do with our politics and our civil life.”
From Milan, he had this to say about the current state of affairs:
“People have a tendency to blame politicians when things don’t work,” Obama said.
“But as I always tell people, you get the politicians you deserve. And if you don’t vote and if you don’t participate and if you don’t pay attention, then you’ll get policies that don’t reflect your interests.”
But maybe a round on an exclusive golf course and a six-day vacation in Italy will help to ease the pain.
