Rick Ungar: Obama's Golf Outing 'Ill-Timed'

President Barack Obama's decision to hit the links immediately following the announcement of the beheading of American journalist James Foley by ISIS was "ill-timed and it didn't feel right," left-leaning Forbes.com senior political contributor Rick Ungar said Friday on Newsmax TV's "America's Forum."

"The president wasn't even 150 miles away from the Foley family, who have absolutely inspired and captured us with their own statements shortly before the president," Ungar said. "Maybe the better way to spend this time would've been to jump on the helicopter and go spend some time with them on all of our behalf because we all would've liked to have been there to give them a hug and tell them that we're thinking about them."
