Obama Skips Polish Embassy and Condolence Book

 Obama had a fresh opportunity to get back out on the golf course Sunday when his flight to Poland for the State funeral of President Lech Kaczynski and his wife was canceled due to flight conditions from the Iceland volcano. So he hit the links again, but has yet to go to the Polish Embassy to sign the condolence book out of respect for the country’s loss.

Barack Obama has played 32 rounds of golf in his short time in office.
By contrast, George W. Bush played golf only 24 times in his 8 years in

Flight conditions also prevented German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s presence in Warsaw, as well as French President Nicolas Sarkozy and Britain’s Prince Charles. I wonder if these three visited the Polish Embassy to sign a condolence book?

Here is what Czech Republic President, Vaclav Klaus, had to say about the EU opting out of honoring one of their own:

…it is absolutely unforgivable that some European leaders and officials from Brussels did not come to the funeral”, Klaus told the Czech Radio. “It is a proof that solidarity within the EU is just an empty word,” added the Czech President.

The only representative of the EU offices at the funeral was a Polish politician Jerzy Buzek, President of the European Parliament.

Wouldn’t you like to know Obama’s handicap? How many mulligans on a round? Who keeps score? Does he cheat? What kind of clubs does he use, and how many hi-tech sets does he have?
