Except for his weekly address, Obama ignored the many V-E Day celebrations in the Capitol commemorating the 70th anniversary of the victory that led to the end of World War II. The address was the most minimal thing he could do.
Instead he flew to South Dakota to talk TPP (it must be a terrible treaty if he wants it this much) and he bloviated about redistributive free college that heavily-taxed working Americans can’t afford.
The media claimed he “led” the celebrations but that was to give the false impression he actually participated. They covered for him as usual.

After this week’s latest Democratic shellacking at the polls, President Obama joked that he might consider “letting John Boehner beat me again at golf.”
Obama and the Ohio Republican are known for their love of the game.
But after a testy bipartisan White House luncheon Friday that quickly became a face-off over immigration, the immediate post-election opportunity for Obama to hit the links with Speaker Boehner came and went.
The Dow registered its sixth-worst weekly fall in its 115-year history this week. It was its worst weekly decline since October 2008. The index has also dropped in seven of the last nine weeks.
Obama went golfing.
Yes. That’s 42,000 of bling on his wrist.
Thank you, Sliderblaze!
President Barack Obama had a high-profile golf partner Saturday: former President Bill Clinton.
The two hit the links on the golf course at Joint Base Andrews, a course outside of Washington that Obama plays frequently. Rounding out the foursome were Obama’s Chief of Staff William Daley and Doug Band, one of Clinton’s aides.
