Screenshot of Fox news anchors saying Obama sucks because JFK didn't go golfing during Cuban Missile Crisis

Oh, Fox:
Speaking to Fox News anchor Bret Baier Monday morning, Fox & Friends co-hosts Brian Kilmeade and Peter Johnson set up a comparison between the situation in the Crimean peninsula and the Cuban Missile Crisis, which they said reflected poorly on President Barack Obama’s round of golf this weekend. [...]

“Also, JFK didn’t go golfing during the Cuban Missile Crisis,” Kilmeade said. “The president was.”

Okay, aside from the fact that we shouldn't take anything away from JFK's golf game because he was probably the best golfing president ever, here's something that even Brian Kilmeade should be able to understand: The Ukraine crisis is not the Cuban Missile Crisis. That's not to say what's happening in Ukraine is unimportant, but until Putin sets his sights on placing Russian nuclear missiles within spitting distance of Florida, and until Obama decides that stopping Putin from doing that is worth risking a nuclear war, and until the world is on the brink of nuclear annihilation, then the Cuban Missile Crisis this ain't. Of course, even if Kilmeade were to acknowledge that, it's not like he wouldn't come up with some other reason for why Obama sucks. After all, it's his job.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
