Nap time for Joe

Things need urgent attention but Joe takes the weekend off.  From the New York Post:

Critics slam Biden’s long-weekend silence as Afghanistan falls to Taliban
Republican leaders are slamming President Biden for taking a long weekend out of the public eye as major cities fall to the Taliban in Afghanistan.

Biden on Thursday sent 3,000 US troops to Kabul to evacuate embassy workers as the Taliban seized Herat and Kandahar, Afghanistan’s second- and third-largest cities — but he hasn’t commented publicly on the crisis since Tuesday.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said Friday that Biden “must immediately focus all efforts on making sure there is a plan to safely extract all American service members and civilians still remaining in Afghanistan.”

“He also owes the American public an answer on what he plans to do to make sure the region doesn’t turn into a breeding ground for more violent extremism that will lead to large-scale global attacks of terrorism,” McCarthy said.

So far in over their heads.  They are running on ideology and not facts.

But it's OK - Joe likes it there:

White House press secretary Jen Psaki defended Biden’s weekend plans on Wednesday, telling reporters he enjoys the “beautiful scenery there.”

“He likes Camp David. It’s a place to be outside, spend time with family, and certainly has beautiful, beautiful scenery there,” she said.

Plus they have pudding on Thursday.  President G.W. Bush was excoriated in the media for spending so much time at his ranch in Crawford, TX. No mention that his ranch was a fully functional remote White House with communications.  He met world leaders there. Biden's big decisions are what to have for desert on those days they do not have pudding.
