Alt headline: Obama Changes Heterosexual Marriage

Obviously, a President has staff members who deal with the logistics of his daily schedule. He didn’t personally decide to relocate this wedding. And, when he found out what happened, he apologized to the couple. This headline is just going to provide fodder for those with ODS.

Rand Paul is a petty little mouse.

I love this 100 times!! (I was writing to suggest a less biased headline, but might as well go to the more likely, right-wing interpretation.)

What else do you expect from a Black Socialist Communist Muslim Nazi from Kenya who is DESTROYING America?
It’s a very slippery slope from wedding venue changes to genocide! Be afraid, very afraid!
Also, too, Ben Ghazi!

Another article on this event noted that the wedding was relocated to a “prettier” site on the base and the bride was happy about it.

You flatter Senator Poodlerug unnecessarily.

Of course Rand Paul would make such juvenile comments!

Oh jeezus, the right-wing flying monkeys will be out in force on this. But, seriously, is there no-one in the WH advance team who could ask the golf course if there was there going to be a problem?

“anyone planning an event at the course when the president may be in town is warned about the potential for last-minute shuffling, said Naile Brennan, manager of K Bay Catering, which was handling logistics for the wedding. Brennan said they had other sites ready to go, and the couple ended up choosing the lush, green lawn near the home of Colonel Eric Schaefer, the commanding officer of the base, which offers an elevated view near the 16th hole.” Dis-missed!

Clearly, this was not Obama’s decision at all – it was the decision of the Secret Service. The logistics involved with having them clear an entirely different path for the President’s golf outing (whether you like it or not, that’s their job) would have likely cost taxpayers in the realm of at least $100,000. And, geez, having to sit on a golf course and wait while some silly selfish couple chooses that location for a wedding ceremony would have pissed me off no end! This is a GOLF COURSE we’re talking about, kiddies, not a Las Vegas Drive-Through Chapel. If you can’t find any other spectacular location in the Hawaiian Islands, you’re just not trying.

The headline kind of plays into the conservative spin. Why does it matter that they’re a military couple. HOLY CRAP, BARRY HUSSEIN OBAMA DISRESPECTS TROOPS. Whatever happened to the days of “you’ll never get rich/Digging a ditch/You’re in the Army now”? Since when does the commander in chief genuflect to the enlisted men? I do think it’s a shame that the president – any president – has such an impact when he travels. (Could they not have planned this golf outing in advance?) The worst traffic nightmare I’ve ever seen in San Francisco was caused by Obama’s entourage a few months ago. Any uproar about the “military” part, though, is purely political.

Subtext: Uppity Obama’s Attempt to Be a White Man Disrespects Military Heroes.

Speaking of clickbait, I followed the Blaze link and found ODS in the comments, as promised
. Gad.

Cue the wailing and gnashing of teeth about Obama destroying the miltary and disrespecting everything holy and good while bringing about the end of civilization as we know it.

Offically ending the war in Afghanistan gets barely even a mention in the media but this… THIS… why it is “news”… NEWS I tell you!
