Obama Sticks to His Schedule

President Obama's "unflappability was a selling point on the 2008 campaign trail.. But as much of an asset as it was for the candidate, Mr. Obama's steady-as-she-goes approach to life can cause problems as president," the Wall Street Journal reports.

"This conflict was on full display Thursday, as Mr. Obama decided to stick to his regular schedule amid news reports of a Malaysia Airlines passenger jet crash in Ukraine that killed nearly 300 people. That decision generated a split-screen aspect to Mr. Obama's day, as TV networks broke into regular programming to broadcast pictures of smoldering plane wreckage while the president appeared to go about his regular business."

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) to Fox News: "I don't understand this president ... this is what we used to call in the military A-W-O-L."
