Here we go again with the latest freakout from the yappers over at Faux "news" and on right wing hate talk radio, attacking President Obama for daring to fill out his NCAA tournament brackets while their hero Putin who they all love so much is on the move in Ukraine.

Fox's Steve Hayes and Charles Krauthammer were on the attack in the clip above:

On Special Report with Bret Baier, Steve Hayes said, “This is a disgrace. The way that the President of the United States and his administration is handling this is so unserious on so many different levels. You heard from the NATO Secretary General that this is a crisis, it’s a crisis like we haven’t seen in decades. What’s President Obama doing? He’s filling out his NCAA bracket. He’s hosting a film ceremony for Cesar Chavez. This is not a serious response to what is, I think, a real crisis.”

With Krauthammer right there to chime in:

On Special Report, Fox contributor Charles Krauthammer agreed with Hayes and said that Obama is "completely unserious about the gravity of the situation ... and while he's working on the brackets for the NCAA, things are not stable."

And as both posts linked here noted, they weren't the only ones. Everyone from Limbaugh, to Hannity, to Bloody Bill's National Review, to the BreitBrats were in on the act as well.

Just remember everyone, only Republican president are allowed to ever go on vacation, play golf, or do any other sort of recreational activity while they are president... ever. And if you're not ready to start another war and get the United States into another military intervention, you're not "serious" about foreign policy.

Can you help us out?
